Balor is a red dwarf star. It produces a weak solar output; however, during solar flares, the luminosity of this star can double or triple. Balor may be named after a king of the Fomorians in Irish mythology, and several of the system's planets are also named after figures from the Irish Mythological Cycle. Balor is a gateway system.
Regardless of previous flight path, the Normandy SR-2 always ends up in this system immediately following the conclusion of the mission aboard the Collector Ship.
Note: Caleston Rift is automatically available after Priority: Rannoch. If Mass Effect 3: Leviathan is installed, Balor can be accessed much earlier, but travel to Aysur is still restricted in this case. Scanning Caleston before even stopping by Dr. Bryson's Lab will break story immersion as the resulting information is something introduced only upon formally starting the Leviathan mission chain.
