Laira Omoto is the Green Lantern of Sector 112.
Laira was born on the planet Jayd in space sector 112. She was trained by her father Kentor Omoto to take over his role as a soldier for the Guardians of the Universe, a Green Lantern. Her training was strict with tradition and honor. During her training she became exceptionally adept at her native martial arts.
Laira makes her first appearance in chapter eight of the Year Two comic series, among the thousand of Green Lanterns recalled to Oa by the Guardians. Laira participated in restraining Hal Jordan during his failed attempt to escape Oa and warn Superman on Earth and witnessed him losing his ring. She then accompanied Kilowog along with several other Corps members to Earth to apprehend Superman.
She is present on Earth and among the many Green Lanterns caught in the beam fired down on them from the Watchtower. Laira survives and engages Superman, Shazam and Hawkgirl in battle. The three are subdued, but Ch'p is soon murdered by Sinestro, an even witnessed by Laira.
In chapter eleven, Laira attempts to battle Sinestro, but is forced back, her shield construct barely repelling Sinestro's weapon constructs. Laira soon finds herself surrounded by the rest of Sinestro's Corps as they arrive to help exterminate the Green Lanterns.
In chapter twelve, Laira surrenders her ring on Kilowog's order, becoming a prisoner of war on Earth. With the defeat of the Green Lantern Corps, Laira's fate is uncertain.
