Aldor - Father Erisi - Mother
Iella's mother and father raised her to take great pride in Star Army of Yamatai, in fact you could even say they conditioned her to become one of its most valuable assets. Both of her parents had served in the military, and considered it one of their greatest accomplishments. It had affected their life so much, they they wanted to share their experience with their only child. They taught her skills that they felt would help her become a successful solider. Iella doesn't feel that she was brainwashed into wanting to help Yamatai. Every decision Iella and her parents made as she grew, was focused on making her a better solider.
Iella and her parents used to be Geshrin, but once the species started to become obsolete, the entire family switched over when Iella was about sixteen.

In was in a Kalmonda, the eqivilant to a kick boxing class, when Iella was just a little girl that she met her two best friends in the world; Reylan and Mina Yidrath. The two were twins, and other than their similar futures, they couldn't be any different. Mina was the smart one, headed for either the science field or military intelligence. She was very level headed and kept Iella and Reylan from terrorizing the town too much. Reylan was much more like Iella and she considered him her greatest competition all the way through high school. She considered him one of the best pilots around. These friends were constantly challenging each other, and were considered the most likely in their town to become something in the Star Army.
As they grew, Reylan and Iella got closer, and eventually became a couple; a very competitive one at that. Iella would talk about their futures together both in and beyond the Star Army, and she knew that she had found her soul mate. The trio had already signed up for boot camp together and just had to finish the last bit of high school, when disaster struck.
