Lessa is an Alerian salvager working on the Ace of Spades.[1]


Lessa grew up on Aleria with her brother Niko in the years after the Covenant had cut it off from the rest of human space. Lessa's father was killed during her childhood. She and Niko were raised by their grandfather until his death from Boren's Syndrome when Lessa was sixteen. To keep fed, she would flirt with passersby and hack into their electronics while they were distracted.[1]

In 2555, Lessa and Niko attempted to hustle Rion Forge, who caught them in the act and offered them a job aboard her ship the Ace of Spades.[1]
