Koskla was born in the town of Kloa on the shores of Lake Cataria on Betazoid in 2380. Koskla is a daughter of the Sixth House of Betazed, the House of Love and Compassion. This House leads Betazoids in practicing love among the people of Betazed. In service to Imza, the Goddess of Compassion, this house reminds the people how their actions, words and behaviors should reflect the love for each other, nature, and the deities. However, Koskla's immediate family is low on the hierarchy of House nobility. Her mother, Dyaxena Dpoda, and father, Dusgla Suder, were married after the end of the Dominion Invasion of Betazed. Koskla had been fascinated with psychology ever since she learned her greath-uncle was born without telepathic ability, which explained his bizarre behavior. She studied psychology at The University of Betazed before joining Starfleet in 2403.
Koskla met Captain Samu Lij upon joining Epsilon Fleet and they quickly became involved. He was Koskla's Imzadi and they had intended to marry. However, her promotion to commodore, after the fleet reorganized into the Eighth Expeditionary Task Force, rendered their relationship inappropriate to Samu and his archaic standards. Some time afterward, Samu's ship was lost and he was presumed dead. Koskla was forced to move on.
Despite the assumption that a Betazoid only has one Imzadi, Koskla has gained a second intense mental connection with Admiral Vaughn Albern. Vaughn and Koskla were close friends but there was more underneath that wasn't fully realized or even admitted. Their connection surprised Koskla but she welcomed her new Imzadi. It is uncertain how this happened but there is speculation it was related to telepathic trauma after encountering a planet full of Tholians around the same time of Samu's disappearance.
