Was gonna use it in a zee-shanty, when i realized i'm not sure how it's even pronounced.

Also, is there a way to learn anything about it, in either of the three games? Best i could glean so far, is that it's a rogue planet, ejected from its solar system, but somehow still sustaining life. Am i even on the right track?

Not so great news: Streetcat is still in London. It's probably right behind you.

I've always pronounced it like exile, with an a. Or axel, with an "I" sound in the middle. But I'm not an official source.

I always thought it was pronounced "AX-isle", but I'm often wrong about such things.

It looks like an adjective from several scientific terms derived from "axis", which fits with Flukes body structure, but there's also a possibility for a pun, since the flukes are exiles.
