Aela is a mystery even to me; I first met her in the intelligence training crèches and we have long been close friends, but I am no closer to understanding her character. Her only motivation is an abstract interest in the development of her own abilities. There are sensational rumors of Koponen disabling her own vehicle's functions before combat or killing her contracted allies to leave herself with a greater challenge. I personally confirm these tendencies. I have also witnessed her standing amid a thin soup of corpse reduction, wielding a Black Hand, her mouth set in a line which suggests a deep and gnawing hunger. Perhaps Solo Nobre will pique her interest.
