Ylara is a private person, for the most part. She's never named the second-mother of her first-born child, Kella Alir. Two hundred years ago, she and her more-than-fair, Ellemai, a fellow asari, left Thessia for an asari colony (Maisa), to avoid the growing prejudice against same-species couples. And that colony came under attack by mercenaries, and the trail led back to Omega. Ylara was a cop and a huntress for her colony, which had been almost wiped out… so she and her beloved hunted those mercs. Right back to Omega. Fifty years of hunting down every merc involved culminated in the pair going to Omega to find the last few bands and kill them.

Aria T'loak didn't take kindly to their presence. She sent out her enforcers, and drove them from the station. And in so doing, Ylara's lover took a fatal wound. Ylara has spent the last two hundred years hoping for a chance at Aria's hide… and happened, unfortunately, to be pregnant when Garrus decided to go after Aria's head.

Ylara mourned deeply for the death of her daughter, Kella, but was comforted by the knowledge that some hint of the girl lived on in Elijah's mind. Not her personality, no, but… some part of her essence. She has accepted Elijah as a 'not-daughter,' and acknowledges him as part-kin.

Her current more-than-fair is the elcor xenobotanist, Tulluust (don't ask!); she finds him extraordinarily peaceful to be around after a long stressful day of Spectre work. He largely cares for their daughter, Telluura, cooks, cleans, and generally loves Ylara unconditionally.

She has adopted an asari child with an unusual genetic mutation; Shellara (now called Sisu) possesses a mutation that makes him functionally a hermaphrodite, but seems to be identifying more and more as male. The child's mother Essallia, was blackmailed by the Lystheni agent, Maldo Ren, with Sisu's mere existence; she didn't want her previous more-than-fair, who'd been in Eclipse, to find out about the child and harm him. As such, Essallia was one of the people who was supposed to spread the plagues on Bastion, and died early from the diseases. Since then, Sisu has lived with Ylara, although the child has also bonded a bit with Zhasa and Dempsey.

Ylara is characterized as quiet, contemplative, and extremely fierce when necessary. But only when necessary. The rest of the time, she's almost serene and contemplative.
