Vanessa Baltar[1] is a religious woman who had a close relationship with her son, Gaius, before his teenage years. As he grew more resentful of his state in life, he pushes Baltar away, not letting her know about his attempts to attend Caprica University.

Baltar later finds out and believes it to be the will of the Gods, considering his intellect to be otherwise wasted on Aerilon as a mere farmer (Battlestar Galactica: Origins 1).

Baltar's older brother, Bernard Baltar, approaches him on Caprica some years later, informing him that she has become ill and asks him for help, which Gaius does not give (Battlestar Galactica: Origins 3).

Prior to the Fall of the Twelve Colonies, Gaius returns to Aerilon to discover that his mother has died and that the family farm has been foreclosed upon (Battlestar Galactica: Origins 4).


  1. Her name is not revealed until Battlestar Galactica: Origins 4.
