Altana was an associate of Chiana's, several cycles before the Nebari joined the crew of Moya. She had met Chiana working on nogelti crystal mines in a dead budong -- which is where she spent the majority of her life.
By the time Altana and Chiana were reunited, when Chiana visited a budong mining colony with Moya, Altana had struck it rich by finding a large crystal vein. Unfortunately, she was killed by a Keedva before she could retrieve the crystals.
Altana appeared in an episode of Farscape.
