Ilam Bironas had a rather typical Turian childhood, entering the military on his 15th birthday and becoming part of the merchant marines. Roughly a year before the Reaper invasion he was serving on the merchant ship Shrike’s Bounty, which was in the Omega nebula to pick up a cargo. The ship ran afoul of a pirate group and was badly damaged. Ilam was part of a small group which evacuated on one of the shuttles and made it back to Omega.

As the most senior of the escaped group, Ilam inexpertly set about making arrangements for the group to be retrieved from Omega. He located a friendly-seeming turian named Sorral Nerius, who offered to help him establish contact and to put up Ilam and his comrades until they could be retrieved. Sorral also expressed an attraction to Ilam, which the young turian rather helplessly responded to. The two had a whirlwind courtship during the two weeks that Sorral told Ilam it would be until another turian ship could retrieve them.

Unfortunately, Nerius never arranged contact with anybody from the Turian military. All of his contacts were with slavers to whom he sold Ilam and his companions. Ilam was a slave on Logasiri when the Reapers attacked, and when the relays went down. Once he was freed following Jarek Bal’iban’s reclaiming of the planet, he went back to the only place in the nebula where anybody ever tried to be decent to him, to try to get on with his interrupted life.
