The Altiri were a Near-Human species that evolved on the planet Altiria/Anarris. Originally a group of wandering nomads, they developed a society that placed great importance on the development of one's self and spirituality. Through artistic expression and cultural awareness, Altiri focused on expanding their knowledge of the universe by peaceful, scientific means. They were perpetually warring with the planet's other native sentient species, the Anarrians. Most Altiri spoke Basic in addition of their native tongue.
