I've been looking through fireflywiki and other websites like that lately. And on one of the character pages for Inara it mentions things about Inara having her past well hidden and the theories on if she is older than she looks. Throughout the season there have been some very tiny hints as to what Inara's past consisted of, but does anyone have a theory as to why she would leave Sihnon? I've been trying to sort through why she would leave a place like that... The only ideas I could come up with(and I'm not sure if they make sense) are that she specifically did something that she wasn't proud of...therefore wanting to get away from it or some horrendous event happened to her. I have no clue.
