Alteria is a planet located in the Nord Greater Province of the Great Garmillas Empire, and homeworld to one of the Empire's subject species. Until 2199, Alteria was an Earth-like world with oceans, forest land, and snow-capped mountains.

Alteria's native people revolted against the Empire and surrounded the Garmillas colonial capital, forcing some Garmillas citizens to evacuate but leaving many more behind. After his escape, Garmillas governor Liber Droppe called for help, summoning Hydom Gimleh and the Imperial Guard to Alteria. When he asked Gimleh to protect the refugees still on the planet, Gimleh instead decided that rebels against the Empire must not be allowed to exist. Shortly after Gimleh ordered the governor's execution, the Imperial Guard launched a devastating assault on Alteria from orbit, immediately reducing much of the surface to wasteland and wiping out most--if not all--of the population in minutes. A significant portion of Alteria was not directly targeted, but may have been rendered uninhabitable in the long term ("Point of No Return").

Some Alterians were offworld at the time of the Imperial Guard's attack, thus avoiding immediate extinction. These survivors included a slave woman in the service of Garmillas Marshal Herm Zoellik in the days leading up to the attack ("The Whisper of the Witch") and a liberated prisoner on Leptapoda ("The Planet That We Head For").

The Garmillas high command was later informed of Alteria's devastation, horrifying some who believed that Gimleh had gone too far in dealing with the rebellion ("Point of No Return").
