- Lael's mother, A 56 year old civilian merchant.
- Adelynn is an independent merchant who resides on Earth and also delivers cargo for clients. She's very materialistic, narcissistic, and controlling. She abhors anything that harms her reputation or embarrasses her and she has no patience for stupidity or ignorance. Because of her narcissistic nature, she thinks that she's always right and hates when people question her. Lael's relationship with her mother is extremely strained due to her mother's high, and at times, unreasonable expectations of her.
- Lael's father, a 59-year-old Al-Leyan Ambassador.
- Aldek is an Ambassdor on Luraul. Lael recently met her father and has discovered his side of the family has unexplained empathic abilities. Since their initial meeting, the two have grown close and enjoy a strong father-daughter relationship. He is very soft spoken and dotes on his daughter, providing a calming influence in Lael's life. He has been a rock through Lael's recent difficulties in re-adjusting to life in her home universe, including the break-up of her and Jansen's engagement as well as the development of her telepathic and empathic bond with Chythar Skyfire. Getting to know her father has given Lael a sense of self that she lacked prior to meeting him.
- Lael's twin brother, a 26 year old civilian doctor.
- Kellan is currently a pediatric doctor working at The Royal Children's Hospital in Melbourne, Australia on Earth. He is typically very introverted and very private. Like his sister, he is very ambitious and resourceful with strong intuition and a mature outlook on life. The only person that he truly trusts is Lael, therefore he will open up to her more so than any others. Prior to her time Over There, he was her confidante. However, since returning, events have put a strain on their relationship. They aren't as close as they were before.
Spouse and Children
- A 37 year old Starfleet Medical Officer and barista of the Brew Continuum aboard the USS Chin'toka, Lael's husband.
- Chythar is currently a Starfleet Medical Officer and the barista of the Brew Continuum serving aboard the USS Chin'toka. They became close during the Anuus Horribilis mission aboard the Gorkon. Lael considers him to be one of closest confidantes and the two are best friends as well as lovers. As an extension of their friendship, the two began exploring an intimate relationship on stardate 239701.27. Nearly a year later on stardate 239701.16, Chythar proposed to Lael in the presence of colleagues and friends. They were married on stardate 2398.10.31 in the presence of family, colleagues, and friends. They are the parents of adopted daughter Madeline Skyfire.
- Maddy is a civilian child who currently resides on the USS Atlantis. Lael's friend, Abigail, died in the other 'verse, her will designating Lael as a secondary guardian should Abigail's mother be unable to perform her duties. Abigail's mother passed a few months after Lael's return from the other 'verse, leaving the young child in her care. Lael recently went through a custody battle with Maddy's biological father, Laman Zeram, and was forced via blackmail to give Maddy into her father's care.
- Recently given to her by her father, the creature's given name means "dreamer girl" in Esperanto. It shares the traits of the Terran Lykoi, but is much stronger and has better night vision and hearing.
Nieces and Nephews
- Lael's nephew, a 12 year old civilian boy.
- She met her nephew for the first time after her return from the other universe. She learned that her brother's ex-girlfriend, Ava Hunter, had concealed the pregnancy, only recently allowing Kellan into Liam's life after a chance run-in with him at the hospital where Kellan was completing his residency. Though she loves her nephew, she's still building a relationship with him. The fact that she spends most of her time away from him makes that difficult.

She got to know him after her father gave her his contact information, saying that Toryn was the son of one of his Haemachuo siblings and suggesting that he and Lael might get along well.

Though the two had a brief period where they began exploring a non-platonic relationship, they eventually decided to just stay friends.

From the beginning, Mei'konda was a source of support for Lael, making her feel like a respected member of the Veritas crew. He was always open to discussing her future aboard the Veritas and provided an example of a good leader...one which Lael continues to learn from each day. With her change in roles serving as his first officer aboard the USS Montreal, the nature of their interactions has changed and she is much more comfortable joking with him. Despite their shared experiences and the trust that was built in their time as a command team, there is still a boundary between them due to his rank.
Elizabeth is currently the Chief Medical Officer aboard the USS Chin'toka. The two met while serving together aboard the USS Chin'toka.

What started out as no strings attached quickly became complicated when the two developed romantic feelings for one another, which neither of them was ready for.
