Lua grew up on a colonized planet in the Amaar solar system, gaining most of her firearms experience hunting Quaar to defend her settlement. With her affinity for explosives and reputation as a crack shot, Lua quickly became the go-to hunter among her people. As the Quaar began to overrun surrounding settlements, growing in number and viciousness, Lua led several squads against them--usually returning victorious, but incurring heavy losses.
In one of her missions, Lua had lost the entirety of her squad while awaiting reinforcements. Her distress call was picked up by a nearby Reclamation ship, and its response came in the form of three Masters being dispatched to her position. Taejin, Maia, and Merope met with Lua to be briefed on the situation, and together, they purged several skittering caves, wiping out a large chunk of the Quaar in one go. Though they parted ways for a while after that, Lua remembered what it felt like to fight with people she could finally consider equals. After going back home to visit her mother, she decided to join the Reclamation fleet to take back Earth, and contacted the Dredgion. Imadath, recognizing her ability to use Sol, agreed to assign her as a Master.
