This article documents the relationships of Yogan Yalu.
Aydam Verso is Yogan Yalu's father. Born in 2328 in the largely rural, agricultural region surrounding Grodor town, Aydam Verso received an education in agricultural science, particularly in irrigation, hydroponic, and aeroponic technology. Aydam desired to be Joined, and was accepted into the Initiate program in 2347, at the age of 19. His time as an Initiate was brief, however; he was washed out of the program after only a few weeks. After leaving the Symbiosis Institute compound, he returned home to Grodor to continue his education. Much of his early career work involved improving the efficiency of soil reclamators, to increase the area of arable land in less-than-hospitable climates.
In 2354, he met Haned Jurea (see below), and they married the following year. In 2356, Aydam and Haned relocated to Earth, where Haned began working as an administrator in the Trill Diplomatic Corps. Aydam worked briefly as a consultant and an instructor at a technical institute, but after the birth of the couple's first child, Aydam assumed primary parenting responsibilities. He continued as the primary caregiving parent after the family moved back the Trill homeworld in 2373, although as the children grew up, he gradually returned to work, teaching agricultural science at the higher education institute in Grodor Town.
In the late 2380s, Aydam and Haned's marriage had broken down to the point they were living separately, and they divorced in late 2392. By 2398, Aydam was in a relationship with a Human lounge singer named Pavlo. In April of that year, he embodied Omed, Yalu's third host, during Yogan's zhian'tara.

Haned Jurea is Yogan Yalu's mother. She was born in 2327 to a well-to-do family in Leran Manev, the most cosmopolitan city on the Trill homeworld. After studying political science at university, Haned began a long career in the Trill Diplomatic Corps. She met Aydam Verso in 2354 and married in 2355. Shortly thereafter, Haned accepted an administrator position at the diplomatic mission on Earth, and worked there from 2356 to 2373. During her assignment on Earth, she and Aydam had three children: Yogan, Nedal, and Kejana. After the family moved back to Trill in 2373, Haned worked within the Diplomatic Corps headquarters until 2382, when she retired after 33 years of service.
Around the same time as her retirement, Haned behgan exhibiting changes in her behavior and personality. She hid the symptoms well, but they worsened over the ensuing years, eventually developing into memory loss and difficulty functioning. She and Aydam separated in the late 2380s, and divorced in 2392. Early the next year, Haned was formally diagnosed with fronto-temporal degeneration. As of 2398, Haned experiences brief and intermittent periods of lucidity, but she is generally unable to care for herself.

Nedal Verso is Yogan Yalu's brother. Born in 2365, Nedal is an immensely talented poet and spoken word artist. After completing his compulsory education in 2383, he was accepted into the prestigious Academy of Poetics in Tenara, where he continued to develop his art. Performing in venues in and around Tenara, Nedal began attracting the attention of cultural movers and shakers on Trill, and gained access to larger audiences and venues for his performances. His first volume of poetry, The Dance of the Betrayed, was published in late 2391. In 2396, seemingly out of nowhere, Nedal decided to end his poetry career and become a Guardian, the monastic community of unjoined Trill who devote their lives to caring for the symbionts. In early 2398, Nedal completed his Guardian apprenticeship and officiated Yogan's zhian'tara, where he also embodied Zedro, Yalu's first host. In mid-2398, Nedal left Trill and his Guardian life behind to study writing at the Pennington School on Earth.
Yogan affectionately calls Nedal 'Neddo,' which Nedal hates.
