History and Background
From a young age, Kyla has been an orphan. Her parents died after their colony ship (one in the latest attempts to colonise Rigel VII), crashed into a jungle clearing. The surviving Orions using what survived the crash as well as the framework and hull plating of the wreck for construction materials. As her parents had died, it was left to the survivors to raise her during her short-lived childhood. When she was only ten years old she started to learn how to help the fledgling settlement, one of seemingly many similar dotted around the Rigel VII highlands, safe from the high tides, to survive by learning how to hunt wildlife for food, furs and other amenities.
By the time she was 19 her somewhat small world and view of things changed drastic after witnessing an escape pod crash-land near the settlement and rescued three survivors from a roaming pack of native Kalar. At their requests she took them back to the Orion Settlement in hopes the Settlement Leader would offer them sanctuary until the ship the survivors belonged to came to recover them. During that time Kyla questioned one of the survivors, a Vulcan Science officer, about many things; like the Galaxy at large, Starfleet and The Federation. One such question that entered conversation was would she be able to apply and attend Starfleet academy, regardless of how daunting the process of application and Sponsorship would be.
By the time the rescue ship, the USS Saratoga, returned to Rigel VII, Kyla had made her mind up that she would go to the Academy. Approaching and beseeching the senior officer in the rescue party to allow her to leave Rigel with the survivors. After some convincing, the officer agreed to bring Kyla aboard and bring her case to the ship's captain.
After acquiring her sponsorship and passing her entry exam on the second attempt, (despite whatever disadvantages in knowledge she possessed), Kyla attended Starfleet Academy at the age of 20, choosing Security as her career course as it closely reflected what she grew up doing.
