Loria was a Vhnori and the wife of Hatil Garan. They had children.

Her husband was hurt and did not wish to be a burden to her, so he chose to be euthanized and go to the Next Emanation, the Vhnori afterlife.

When Harry Kim was pulled from another dimension to the Vhnori homeworld, Loria's husband began to question the next emanation. She tried to persuade him to consent to the procedure, explaining that he would be with his father. Loria became upset with Kim, and told him to stay away from her husband.

In the end, Garan would switch places with Kim. Kim returned to USS Voyager, and Garan, unknown to Loria, fled to the mountains. Loria believed he was dead and happy in the next emanation. (VOY: "Emanations")

The subtitles on the US DVD release spell her name as Araya rather than Loria. The Star Trek Encyclopedia (4th ed., vol. 1, p. 298) listed her name as Araya Garan.
Loria was played by actress Robin Groves.
