The Branaugh belt alpha is an asteroid belt in the Branaugh system. Residents of the system operate various independent mines on the asteroids to keep their settlements supplied with goods to trade. In addition to the mines, some Tevarin who prefer to live in isolation outside of the community on Branaugh II reside on the larger asteroids. Each year, several spacecraft are reported missing while traveling the belt. Although the ships' disappearances have never been directly linked to the asteroid inhabitants, locals use caution while flying in the area.
