About

  Born in mid-September, 2012, she was separated from her parents when The Purge began in mid-October, 2015. Her parents spent more than two decades in Amber after they failed to locate her in the aftermath of the invasion, and after their plan to defeat the Observers had to be aborted. She is a Fringe Division Agent charged with policing the Native population beyond the scope of typical Loyalist Security operations. She is an active member of the Resistance forces that have challenged the oppressors since The Purge. She has had an active 'work order' on request with her contacts for sometime and in 2036 it paid off. Her family was discovered in Amber and she was able to retrieve and release them. After a brief period with her family, she was shot in the chest by Captain Windmark. Her time distracting Windmark allowed her family to elude capture and eventually eradicate the Observers from the timeline... which negated The Purge and her separation from her parents as a child - negating her role as a Resistance Fighter embedded in Fringe Division.

  The necklace she wears with a keepsake spent bullet hanging from it, is pivotal in the overall serialized mytharc of the Fringe saga. An item formerly kept by her mother, the bullet rectifies divergent timelines and potential futures. The bullet has saved the world, and all of humanity, on several occassions.

Quotes

"He's a native. My jurisdiction. Sorry he acted out, Captain Windmark. I mean, you could Wipe Him, sure, but then there's the inquiry, the paperwork. Club gets shut for two days, and I, for one, lose a hell of a lot of kickbacks." - to Captain Windmark (schmoozing the boss about her confidential informant while actively blocking his passive mind-reading tactics (Letters Of Transit))

"You see him. He's half a fruitcake short of Christmas." - to Simon Foster (an honest assessment of the first few hours with her grandpa Walter, after his twenty-plus years in Amber (Letters Of Transit))

"There's one on every continent. The air here, it's too oxygen-rich for them. A few more years, and the effects will be irreversible. It'll reduce the average non-Observer lifespan to somewhere around 45." - to the science team as they hunt for her mother (overlooking the Central Park Pollution Farm from near Columbus Circle, one of the invading Observer objectives includes degrading the environment to appease their own health prerequisites as they scrape the forested park bare and install pollution generators (Transilience Thought Unifier Model-11))

"He's not worth a single tear. Loyalists sell out their own kind like rats. I know you just woke up, but look around you, Mom. Can't you see what the Observers have brought? This is war. And we're losing." - to Olivia (about there traitorous and Observer subservient prisoner. she doesn't consider him worthy of the skin he lives in and is prepared to rapidly (tortuously) age him with advanced technology in order to extract the counter-intelligence data the science team needs so they might infiltrate Walter's Lab, and ultimately defeat the invading Observers (In Absentia))

"It's natural human instinct. To live as long as possible. It's the same quality they use to turn us into slaves." - to Olivia (about her prisoners willingness to divulge the information she needed after only a little duress) (In Absentia))

"You know, I used to imagine this - - going on a mission with you. You have no idea how many battles we won together." - to Olivia (sharing the childhood fantasy she indulged in during her mother's two decade absence (The Recordist))

"I found it... at our old house on Quincy Street. I wanted to remember things. I don't know. I just wanted to be there. It made me feel closer to you. It was looted. The entire block was. Upstairs in your bedroom, what used to be your bedroom, I found what was left of your old jewelry box. And there was this matchbox inside. I shook it and found this. I figured it had to be important, or you wouldn't have kept it." - to Olivia (nostalgic about the keepsake spent bullet that they have both kept on a necklace for decades now) (The Bullet That Saved The World))

"You have to. You won't make it with me. I'll slow you down. You have to leave." - selflessly and with uncommon valor to her parents moments before her self-initiated booby-trap death (urging them to vacate the area as she is confident that Windmark has fatality wounded her and the science team's overall mission to eradicate the invading Observers is at considerable risk) (The Bullet That Saved The World))
