Priya was born on Earth. At some point, she had a son, Ryker. They went aboard Eligius III to travel to the moon Alpha. They arrived there in 2045 and were original members of Mission Team Alpha. Priya was one of the mechanics for the team. During the first Red Sun eclipse, both Priya and Ryker were killed by Russell under the effects of the Red Sun toxin.
Priya and Ryker became two of the Primes and used various Royal Blood hosts for the next two centuries to be reborn after each death. Priya was on her sixth host, making her Priya VII until her host's mother killed her as revenge for Delilah.
Throughout the Series
In From the Ashes, Jordan Green brings Russell Lightbourne Priya's Mind Drive, feeling that Russell should have. Russell, who now wishes to die, thinks that Jordan now believes in the divinity of the Primes because he has been Adjusted, but Jordan denies it. Russell smashes Priya's Mind Drive with his shackles, destroying it and her consciousness and tells Jordan that unless Jordan is willing to do the same thing to him, they are done talking. In False Gods, as James Crockett goes to try to fix Sanctum's reactor, Cora expresses concern, stating that Priya had never let anyone go into the reactor core. However, James dismisses Cora's concerns. Later, as Blythe Ann Workman serves him, Trey tells her that she deserves to burn for killing Priya. However, an unrepentant Blythe Ann states that Delilah deserved justice.
Priya was horrified when she learned that Russell Lightbourne used Clarke Griffin to resurrect his daughter out of turn. Though her host's mind was wiped, she may retain some of her fondness for Jordan Green as Priya tenderly held and comforted him after Jordan was seriously wounded protecting her against Madi Griffin. Russell later states that Priya personally saw to Jordan's recovery in thanks for him saving her. Jordan in turn is shown to be devastated by her death and to have preserved Priya's Mind Drive.
She was a woman of Indian ancestry. She had brown skin, black hair and brown eyes. Her last host was of African ancestry and also has brown skin, brown eyes and black hair.

- Priya: "It's true. We're not divine. We survive because we have technology. But we need your bodies to do it. Delilah's not one with me. She's dead, killed so that I could return. It's all a lie."

Priya had no known kills, either direct or indirect.
