Her appearance coupled with her ability to make quick decisions on how to order imperial troops stationed throughout the rail lines nationwide has earned her the nickname the “Icy Maiden.” She was under the direct supervision of Prime Minister Osbourne, but failed to prevent his assassination at the hand of terrorists at the end of the last game. She also Rean and the others, having swapped information with them, and ends up helping her out again as she engages in a covert mission in which she dresses up as a civilian.
