Oh, this is the part where I laugh, I think, because that’s hilarious.

Biography

Kayla Torvis was a member of Sojourner Elite Guard during the reign of Mathias Rampel. Kayla left the service because she would not follow the orders of the Captain of the Guard, Meilon Garto.

Following her exit from the guard, Kayla underwent extensive procedures to augment her body. The full extent of these procedures it unknown, but it includes integrated cybernetics, a metal exoskeleton, and at least one cybernetic eye. These upgrades extend to her super-human abilities, such as seeing through cloaking devices and surviving a hit from a tank shell.

Well, if you can’t send an army, you may as well send Kayla Torvis.

- Meilon Garto

After Mathias Rampel was deposed by his daughter, Kayla was employed by Charlotte Rampel to escort her into Returner territory in the hopes of stopping the Sojourner-Returner war. Alongside the Returner agent Gerard Shin, Kayla was able to get Charlotte to the Returner capital of Cacophony and into a meeting with the councillors from the six Returner nations. Charlotte spent fourteen hours convincing the councillors to accept peace, during which Kayla held off attempted incursions by the Returner military into the meeting.

Once Kayla completed had her mission, and accepted the two-and-a-half million credits for doing so, she returned to her activities as a wandering ronin.

135 years after the end of the Sojourner-Returner war, Kayla was found under the employment of Lita Bard, the mother of Lucy Bard, on her wind farm on the island of Avalon. Though she is of very advanced age, Kayla still appears as though she were aged in her mid-thirties.
