She is a human with caramel skin. She is a bit on the heavy side, but, because of this, she has enormous curves. She has long, dark hair and hazel eyes.Planet of origin:
Triti. The planet is covered mostly in deserts, and the population is highly uncivilized. There are two large lakes on opposite poles that cover about a quarter of the planet's surface. The planet was founded by religious extremists that fled from their home country to find a place to worship in solitude. As the years passed, some small groups of the populace wished to interact with the outside world. They formed cities that traded local goods (primarily slaves, raw meat, and fish) with other planets. The two communities, surprisingly, did not have sour relations with one another. They worshiped the same deity and got along well. Many families were divided in beliefs about isolation, and children often moved into the cities to experience a more modern lifestyle. They do not identify themselves by families, so they avoid the use of surnames.Crime:

Layla has always been able to change her persona in the blink of an eye. She is often laid back, even when placed in a position that doesn't bode well for her. She takes her time with things, and she tries to always think through the situations she is presented with. In front of people of power, she is a professional ass-kisser. Layla is often vulgar, and she isn't afraid of getting personal with people she hardly knows due to her history with unknown, nameless women. She can also be quite seductive when she wants to be. She has a habit for talking too much, which sometimes ends up poorly or beneficially. History:
Layla was destined for something different at birth. Her mother died in childbirth, leaving her father quite detached from her. In their native tongue, her name meant "Layla, Lioness, Mistress of her Enemies." Layla was her mother's name. The doctors claimed she should have died in childbirth, but that she was a warrior. Because of this, he chose to honor her with a fitting name. Due to her lack of a proper upbringing, Layla grew up to be rebellious and independent. Until she was able to fend for herself, the many villagers cared for her as a community. Born on Triti, Layla had an upward climb to power. The planet was not known to create anybody famous but the occasional religious terrorist. She craved for something better.
She quickly molded into the group that practiced religion rather loosely. Her father was a wealthy slave trader. As he aged, he realized how much he had shunned his only child. To make up for his actions, he promised to help fund her education. She traveled to the northern city and studied till she was sixteen. Her body and mind matured, and she desired to leave the wasteland of a planet. What stopped her was an innovative idea. Triti was home to hundreds of slave stalls, but they mostly sold to one another. The few markets that did sell off planet were located in the city where breeding and the increasing of stock was difficult.
Traveling home, Layla asked her father for a spot within his company. She explained her idea, and her father accepted. For two years, Layla transported hundreds of slaves from the desert ranches to the city. Once in the city, she sold them in large quantities to buyers interested in something larger than a personal servant. She had a passion for her occupation. Layla would travel to ranches that she knew were low on business, offer them a cheap sum for most of their slaves, and then profit off of them in the city.
It was this job that started her ascent into riches and descent into cruelty. Her education led her to become one of the smartest women on the planet, but she was also greedy. She now knew of the world outside of Triti, and she wanted more. She told her father she would be leaving with her next shipment. Gathering two hundred slaves, she made her long march through the desert to the northern city. Along the way, she raped two of the women that had grown up with her in her local village. They would soon be sold, so she knew that her secret would be kept.
Arriving in the city, she met up with her buyer. It was a man she had done business with before, so she knew his weak points. He was extremely rich (enough to purchase the whole planet, if it was his desire), and he had an interest in Layla. After loading the slaves onto his ship, the two spent a night together on board before departing. Layla knew the benefit of spreading her legs, and she wasn't afraid of doing it. The man helped fund her studies in one of the finest academies on Denor, a massive, city planet. He returned occasionally, but she had no true attachment to him.
For two more years, Layla studied the inner workings of the universe-wide market. Specifically, she studied the loopholes of trafficking and how to enter into the business. After graduating, she began to choose her path. After doing some research, she found the perfect opportunity. A small planet called Sulia was home to a rare species of insectoids. They avoided all outside contact except for the selling of their strange substance resembling honey. It was a purple goo that tasted so rich that the wealthy purchased it from across thousands of planets.
Using her connections, she formed a group of five businessmen with the goal of enslaving the populace of Sulia. The planet was not part of The Empire. One of her partners had political connections, and he received the go-ahead to colonize the planet. Hiring a group of military mercenaries, the council of five easily overran the country. They enslaved the insects and forced them to up their output of delicious goo. One of the men had a stock of robotic sentries that confined the slaves to their comb-shaped holes dug into the surface. They never allowed them to leave, because the race only produced their goo when underground. Out of the entire council, Layla was actually the most kind. Unfortunately, she was only kind when compared to her fellow members. For three years, the group abused the entire race. They profited immensely, and they all became rich within that short span.
The group was already pushing the slaves to their limit, but some wanted more. They proposed a system that would forcibly breed hand picked slaves to increase the workforce. In her youth, Layla had worked with slave breeding. Long ago, she had considered it amusing, but age had changed her. She knew that the natives of Sulia were on the verge of full out rebellion. Although small uprisings had occurred in isolated locations, she knew that it was only the beginning. The race was led by a queen who was fiercely attached to her females. The men were actually unable to reproduce, and they served only as workers. Women were only allowed to mate with the designated queen, and she spent most of her time repopulating the race. They followed this code strictly. Layla knew that if they forced the women to mate with anybody except the queen, then things would turn sour quickly.
Wanting to avoid the collapse of her income, she decided to turn on her partners and The Empire. She descended secretly into the tunnels and requested to meet the queen. The two conversed, and Layla betrayed all of the information needed to result in a successful uprising. In return, she asked for her life to be sparred and a sizable portion of future profits gained by the regular return of their trade. The rebellion succeeded, but the queen was not one to hold her end of the bargain. She killed all of the humans, including the council, and tore down the expensive equipment that had contained them. As for Layla, she was dragged deep down into the tunnels to serve a different purpose. For two years, she served as an incubator for the queen's eggs. In addition, she was often given to the other insectoids that workers hardest as a special reward. Although she was defiant at first, she learned to accept and please. The two years felt like a lifetime, and she learned to appreciate other species. It humbled her.
Unfortunately for the Sulians, The Empire didn't take kindly to their rebellion. After two years, they remounted an invasion and wiped out most of the species. They kept a few alive for the creation of goo. The soldiers found Layla deep within the tunnels. She was nude, covered in slime, and laying beside the queen. She made her case that she had been captured when trying to defend herself from the rebels. The soldiers believed her, mostly out of pity, and allowed her to leave.
But, for Layla, her life of crime was not over. Even after committing treason against The Empire and her partners, she didn't want to stop. She was still wealthy, having kept her income stored away in a bank. Layla began to research possible futures for her. She always loved slaving, and she couldn't turn away from it. Purchasing a massive slave ship, she began transporting, buying, and selling thousands of slaves. She acquired most illegally, and she sold most of them to crime lords and terrorists. She made hundreds of connections to people on The Empire's wanted list.
She did grow to miss the Sulian queen; she had become accustomed to her abuse. Possibly as a means of repose, she wooed many female crime bosses for the sole purpose of being handled by them. In return, many recommended her to other people they knew. Her connections began to accumulate over time. She seemed to wear two masks. In front of her slaves, she was cruel and demanding, but she was tame and wanting in front of any woman that was powerful or could increase the size of her bank. Unfortunately, it was this promiscuous behavior that resulted in her downfall. A group of special forces invaded a terrorist's supposedly hidden base of operations. They found the wanted woman in her bedroom lying beside of Layla. She had formed a reputation of her own as one of the largest slavers in the galaxy. She had managed to stay hidden for three years; she was twenty eight.
Layla was arrested for a wide assortment of crimes. Her past misdeeds even came back to haunt her as survivors of Sulia and slaves she had raped in her youth came to swear against her. Although she pleaded not guilty, the evidence was substantial. She was shipped off to The Cooler where she would, once again, be forced to start over and renew her connections.
