Trans-Neptunian planets orbiting the Sun perpendicular to the ecliptic

Here is the code for an .ssc for two super-Earth planets beyond Pluto orbiting the Sun approximately perpendicular to the plane of the ecliptic of known planets:

Code: Select all

"DShon Collins" "Sol"

I've made up a story for them:
Approximately 50 million years ago, D'Shon Collins was a planet orbiting Gamma Cephei A. However, it was expelled from the Gamma Cephei A system following a close encounter with Gamma Cephei A's current sole exoplanet, now officially named Tadmor (Gamma Cephei Ab). No longer in the light of its then-dwarf star (Gamma Cephei A is now an orange giant), D'Shon Collins headed southward, towards the Earth's Sun, passing around 130 astronomical units away from it, before being captured by it into it orbit perpendicular to the orbits of the Sun's planets. A similar event happened to DeLisle. It was originally an Earth-like planet that orbited Achird A (Eta Cassiopeiae A), before a close encounter between the system's two stars accelerated the natural process leading to flares. They both emitted massive flares that not only scorched DeLisle for a while, but pushed such force at it that it was ejected out of orbit and headed southward, also towards the Earth's Sun (roughly 60 million years ago). DeLisle, despite being temporarily scorched, was able to retain its water due to its thick atmosphere. The water froze, and DeLisle became a frozen wasteland, then eventually slipping into orbit around the Sun - but still too far away for the Sun's heat to melt its ice into liquid water at 135 astronomical units.
