Daia Caran, or as the extranet knows her, SteelUnifier is a turian VI engineer living near the lower Tayseri Ward. As a staunch Hierarchy loyalist, her strong pro-Hierarchy ethos and caustic way of expressing it puts her at odds with other individuals on the board. Despite more than a decade involved in the Hierarchy's computer core, she's found little success in the way of her passions making her home on the Citadel -- something that brushes up against her stubborn insistence on her values and pride quite frequently.
Daia Caran is what some would describe as the quintessential turian. Honourable to almost a fault, she's a staunch supporter of the Hierarchy's politics. While not very willing to adjust her current views, she is willing to make concessions about some of her race's habits.
She tries to be friendly, being generally accepting of other Citadel races, but she despises batarians, krogan and vorcha.
Gatrinex Arthutan: She was very insistent that Gat was a terrible person and that she absolutely wasn't interested in him. Some would say a little too insistent.
"I found out my mother was afflicted with stage 1 of Jurmand’s Syndrome. My father told me over the holo-terminal. She fell unconscious in the living room and when they diagnosed her... well, it was an emotional call. It’s not a very well understood disease so all we can really do is keep her in a hospital on my pension until there’s something that can be done."
Daia has an older brother and two sisters (one younger and one older). Her brother Noctus taught her a lot about fighting and the Hierarchy's expectations for its soldiers, and later took up a job on Macedyn as an architect. They were close. The elder sister, Vorielle, didn't agree with the rest of the family in terms of politics; she regularly visited their mother at the clinic but had little other contact. Serea, the younger sister, always had an ambivalent relationship with Daia. She served in Hierarchy Intelligence (the Office of Information Control and Distribution).
