(+) Physical Prowess: Laira was raised as the daughter of a Mandalorian Warlord, and thus is in excellent physical condition from years of training. She maintains peak condition for her body type's strength, agility, and endurance through a vigorous daily exercise regime of cardio and resistance training, which includes squats. Luckily for Laira, her beauty takes after her mother other than her bright red hair.
(+) Piloting: Laira took a knack for flying. She rode Thranta with her mother and Father from a young age, took up riding a Basilisk War Droid alongside her father at times and picked it up easily, and unlike her father enjoyed flying starfighters, shuttles, and freighters. She had a gift for the skill and developed over her teenage years as something she enjoyed greatly, having the reflexes and talent to be a natural in the cockpit.
(+) Survival Training: Laira enjoyed hunting with her father as a young girl, and alone as a teen. Despite her unwillingness to make a habit of roughing it , she is more than capable of surviving for weeks at a time on planets like Tatooine, Hoth, or Vendaxa without supplies given her upbringing.
(+/-) Affluent: Laira was born into wealth and was given a fairly hefty trust fund to survive off of during her youth. She has access to immense wealth and treasure if she absolutely needed it, though most of what she does have to her own name is diverted to help others who she believes need it more. It could be useful, though she rarely has access to it herself.
(-) Head Strong: She is unlikely to seek or accept help, even in dire circumstances. She is willing to take heavy risks to prove she can stand on her own, and she often seems ungrateful for assistance she does receive. Laira is stubborn and brash, probably a direct symptom of being raised by a wealthy Royal family and being her Father's baby girl. While she doesn't like needing other people, she has been raised where she had everything she ever needed provided and rarely had to work for anything she wanted.
(-) Flirt: Laira has a thing about enjoying attention from most sources to the point she will actively engage in conversation and flirt with those around her, act coy and coquettish with strangers and friends alike. This can put her in dangerous spots or get her out of trouble depending on the situation. At heart though, she does it for her own amusement and is unlikely to act on such advances or implications. Its just a game to her.
(-) Telekinesis: Like her father, Laira is unable to harness Telekinesis very well. She is limited to very basic uses, and even then only very small objects such as pens or pencils with significant effort and concentration. This practice is extremely difficult, requiring concentration and focus, making it useless it combat. This could be caused by a family oriented mental block, or similar to the Horn line of Jedi, they may just be unable to harness it because the Force works in mysterious ways.
Height: 1.70 Meters (5’7”)
Weight: 62 Kilograms (136 Pounds)
Hair: Crimson with streaks of Scarlet and Orange
Laira is a lean young woman, on the tall side of average height, and on the muscular side of average weight. She has an curvy, athletic frame, with noticeable muscle definition on her stomach, legs, and arms from years of training and hunting in the wilderness alongside her father and the more civilized shamans of Clan Vereen. Laira bears very few scars on her body, having meticulously healed from injuries and using scar-removal medicines when necessary. The only noticeable scar is on her left arm, just below the elbow. A small pale line where the cloned arm was reattached to her limb is all that remains of her amputation.
She has stormy grey eyes like her father, a trait passed down to her by her paternal grandmother, contrasting her fair skin which she acquired from her mother's side. Laira has fiery, straight red hair which she prefers to keep long, sometimes tying braids into it of varying sizes or having it styled with a feathered look.
Preternatural Awareness: The Force which provides her with very limited form of precognition allowing her to sense the path of projectiles, sometimes before they are even fired. Laira has amazing situational awareness and perception. Her danger-sense is fine tuned, and her instincts well-honed for the rigors of combat on the ground, or in a cockpit where she fells most at home.
Martial Prowess: Laira is skilled with a number of weapons, having grown up in a household that respected the art of war. She is a skilled swordswoman and a decent sharpshooter, preferring the New Jedi Order Fast and Medium styles which compliment her speed and agility. Though she maintains peak physical conditioning for her size, Laira's physical abilities are usually limited by her svelte stature.
Fleet of Foot: In a single word, Laira's focus in most things is Speed. She prefers to collect increasingly fast speeders and ships, gaining a thrill from flying in dangerous spaces as fast as she is able to. On the ground she uses the Force to enhance the speed of her body in combat. She is able and willing to accelerate her strikes so that they impact with extreme kinetic force if necessary.
She was educated at the Crevasse City Collegium for Young Ladies where she received her primary education, supplemented by winters in the Juran Mountains with the shamans of Clan Vereen and her Father learning the ways of Nature, Mandalorian Culture, and being trained in the Force alongside her twin brother. She is notably more intelligent than her father, having done well in primary school and having gained a formal education well beyond that of her father, though the professors and educators struggling to reign in her independent and headstrong personality throughout her time there. The shamans taught her how to control and sense the Force, how to maintain balance within the Force, though like her father she never picked up Telekinesis. Draco and the others were careful not to introduce her to the Dark Side, however she was taught about it, how it felt when one called upon it, how to resist its pull when it offered so much of what she would want, what it meant to the Clan to find the balance in the Force, why the Dark Side and Light Side were important and what they represented.
Laira has struggled with her identity for several years, having difficulty understanding her place as the Heir-Apparent of the Throne of Alderaan and the daughter of a Mandalorian Warlord who had laid down his sword relatively early in his life. In contrast with her mother and father, Laira did not settle into either role presented to her and instead went off on her own path, choosing the life of a spacer as her own for her youth in hopes of seeing the galaxy, meeting new and exciting cultures and people, and living a little more dangerously than either of her parents would like. Her fierce independence caused her to leave her trust-fund untouched for the most part, barring the occasional vacation or outing, and live off the means she was able to earn on her own.
With her father's help, she established a few alter identities, receiving several well crafted false identities and the paperwork to support them as best as could be provided to allow her to live as she desired without the stigma of her parent's legacies shadowing her wherever she went. Although most of her time is spent away from Alderaan, she occasionally attended royal functions and visits with her family.
Rather than return home from her adventures after the Battle of Thyferra, Laira remained with the newly formed Resistance. She became an active member of RESINT and the Jedi Remnant aligned with the rebel movement. She undertook several simple missions alongside Firemane associate and part-time girlfriend, Elpsis Kerrigan-Alcori, and with RESINT operative Cato Fett where the princess felt she became mentally unstable. In the hopes of settling her mind and growing as a leader and a warrior, she redoubled her commitment to the Jedi Remnant, adopting a life style inspired by the New Jedi Order.
