The Balmera is a type of creature from the Voltron: Legendary Defender animated series; though their outer bodies are petrified, the Balmerans are massive space-faring lifeforms possessing life and will. Balmera naturally produce crystals that various races use as energy sources, and are home to the Balmerans, humanoid creatures who tend to the Balmera.


Over 10,000 years ago, the people of Altea enjoyed a special relationship with the various Balmeras, infusing the creatures with revitalizing energy in exchange for crystals of various size. Sadly, this partnership came to an end with the rise of the Galra Empire, who-much as they plundered various worlds for Quintessence-occupied the Balmeras and savagely strip-mined the beasts of their crystals, using the Balmeran people as slave labor.
