The Asurans are technological nanomorph life-forms from Asuras, a planet located in Pegasus, a satellite galaxy of the Milky Way. Originally created by the Lanteans as a means of fighting the Wraith and were referred to as Replicators by the Asgard, and the Federation.

Originally developed as nanites, Asurans represent the evolutionary plateau of synthetic life, having developed over thousands of years in complete isolation. Left to their own devices, they transformed their homeworld of Asuras into a planetwide city rivaling the grandeur of anything their creators had ever built. Jealous of the attention that the Lanteans gave to humanity, the Asurans strove to prove themselves the most advanced and sophisticated race in the galaxy. Their civilization was destroyed, however, when the Atlantis Expedition reactivated their command code compelling them to engage the Wraith, sparking a devastating war that would end with the destruction of Asuras and the near-extinction of its inhabitants.

Though the vast majority of Asurans were killed during the battle over their homeworld, a small splinter faction remains somewhere in space, operating under the direction of Replicator leader Elizabeth Weir.
