Inara is a highly regarded registered Companion (read: courtesan), and the most respectable person aboard Serenity. No one seems to know what such a high-priced working girl is doing on the very low class Serenity, least of all Malcolm Reynolds. She’s elegant, educated, and beautiful. She maintains her own space - a shuttle on the ship - and only has the high class and decent clientele. Prostitution (or at least licensed prostitution) is legal on almost all planets thanks to the influence of The Guild. A Companion is essentially of the highest social standing -- certainly higher than a ship full of petty crooks.
She does *not* count the crew among her clients.
Inara was born, raised, practiced her craft, and was a shoe-in for the rank of High Priestess of the The Guild on her home planet of Sihnon, the jewel of the Core Worlds. Since leaving Sihnon over a year ago, she has adapted quite well to the wild border worlds... she even owns a pistol.
