Priya Desai was a recurring character in the sixth season. She is portrayed by cast member Ashleigh LaThorp and debuts in "Red Sun Rising".

Priya was a Sanctum resident and one of the Primes. She is the mother to Ryker Desai. Her last host was Delilah Workman.

Early life

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.

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 is currently on her sixth host, making her Priya VII.

Throughout the Series

In The Face Behind the Glass, The time for final stage of Delilah's naming ceremony arrives. Russell invites Delilah to the stage. Before going in, Delilah gets a little scared and returns to Jordan. She gives him a kiss and asks him not to let her be another face behind the glass. After that, she goes to the stage and enters a room. Some time later, she comes back outside, as Priya the Seventh. Jordan is shocked when she tries to talk to her but she doesn't remember him. She is acting like a completely different person - Priya.

In The Gospel of Josephine, Priya is talking to Miranda about the things she missed while she was "on ice" and says that she is sorry for Rose's death so Jasmine could not be resurrected. Then Jordan walks up to them. Miranda explains the he was Delilah's boyfriend and he gifts Priya Daisies, mentioning they were Delilah's favorite flowers. Priya out of courtesy accepts them and thanks Jordan saying that they are.

After figuring out about the bodysnatching, the Earth/space group talks in the tavern when Priya comes in. Jordan freaks out saying that they murdered Delilah and pointing out to Blythe Ann that she was her child. B.A. says that she miss Delilah too and Priya calms Jordan down saying that Delilahs is happy and she wants him to know that.

In The Old Man and the Anomaly, everyone has gathered in the Palace after Miranda's death. Madi sees it as an opportunity to kill more Primes, starting with Priya. When Jordan notices Madi about to stab Priya with a knife, he jumps in to save her but Madi accidentally stabs him instead. While everyone else suspects the Children of Gabriel, Russell says that it was the group from Earth that killed Miranda. Priya wonders why the Earth group would turn against them since Jordan just saved her. At that point, Ryker reveals that they did it because Russell used "murdered" Clarke to bring Josephine back. They are angry that Russell brought Josephine back before it was her turn.

In Ashes to Ashes, Russell tells John Murphy that Jordan survived his wounds and was spared punishment due to his saving Priya. Priya has been personally seeing to Jordan's recovery in thanks.


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.
