Sphinx is fictional planet in the "Honorverse", a series of books by David Weber. It is the fourth planet of Manticore A, which is a component of the Manticore binary star system. It is a heavy gravity world with gravity 1.35 times that of Earth. Its orbit gives it a long year compared to Terra, with cool if temperate summers and long extremely severe winters with very heavy snowfalls.
Honor Harrington was born, and grew up, on Sphinx.
