Baltus is the home planet of the Encephalopods.
Baltus is a planet which shares its orbit with many asteroids, and impacts are very common. All the land species on the planet are extinct, but under the oceans life is still thriving. Despite this, continents still exist on the planet.
Baltus suffered diverse asteroid impacts which led to mass extinctions and natural disasters. The most advanced species by now are the Encephalopods, which are working on systems to protect the planet from asteroid impacts and thus, prevent mass extinction.
Baltus is a play on baltic sea, which is the place where Krakens have first been said to be observed.
