The Althosian system was a star system with seven planets and two suns. The planets within the system were collectively called the Seven Planets. Six of the seven planets were inhabited; the last "planet" was actually an artificial construction and was not inhabited. Hunters lived around the Althosian system, where they were attracted to the seventh planet.
