Keyla

Keyla
Gender: Female
Species: Tandaran
Occupation: covert operative
Status: Active (2152)
Played by: Dey Young

Keyla was a mysterious woman whom Jonathan Archer met while vacationing on Risa in 2152. Although she appeared as a member of a previously unknown species, she was in fact a Tandaran in disguise.

On Risa, Keyla was staying in a villa across from the villa which Archer was occupying. She had with her a dog named Rhylo. When Rhylo somehow appeared on the deck of Archer's villa and began a growling match with Archer's dog, Porthos, Keyla arrived to retrieve Rhylo. Keyla became acquainted with Archer and accepted his offer to join him for dinner the following night.

Although she seemed to be making romantic overtures toward Archer, Keyla remained secretive and avoided answering Archer's questions regarding the name and location of her planet. She eventually told Archer that her family, including her husband, was killed by the Suliban Cabal. When Archer admitted he had encounters with the Cabal, Keyla suddenly deluges him with questions regarding those encounters, asking where they lived and wondering what they were planning next.

Surprised by Keyla's tenacity and noting that she was asking the same type of questions which the Tandaran Colonel Grat was asking him, Archer took a bioscan of Keyla, revealing her to be a disguised Tandaran. Archer confronted Keyla with the truth, asking her if she was sent by Grat and accusing her of creating "fictitious tragedies" to gain his sympathy. Keyla appeared to have no knowledge of Grat and told Archer he was wrong about her, insinuating that her "tragedies" were very real. She attempted to leave, and when Archer attempted to hold her back to get more information, Keyla rendered him unconscious by pricking him with some type of anesthetic. She then left, proclaiming that she could not have Archer interfering with her plans. (ENT: "Two Days and Two Nights")

Keyla was played by Dey Young. It is unknown what species she was disguised as, although she did have markings similar to (but not quite the same as) those of a Trill.
