Marla was married to a Bionational Corporation agent named Massey and had a son with him in 2186. One day in 2192, her son came across an encrypted message that was for his father regarding a job he was to do. The boy showed the message to Marla who confronted her husband about the message. Massey then snapped his son's neck killing him in front of a horrified Marla. Massey then quickly killed Marla and used his connections with the local authorities to make it look like a burglary gone wrong. Marla and her son's remains were later cremated.
