Personal History:

Irene was born in New York in 1934, to a middle class family in the city. From a young age Irene was always active, loud and aggressive. Taking more after her father, a US Military Drill Sergeant at the time, she sought to be rough and tough rather than prim and proper as most women of the time were expected to be. Her early childhood was devoid of much importance. She was a bit of a troublemaker in school and around her home, got slightly above average grades despite her off putting behaviour, and would occasionally get into fights if she was particularly ornery.

With the uprising of the Cold War, a lot of women, as young as 16, were introduced en-masse to major work forces in the United States, that which had been done during World War II. Old enough now, and having no other plans to continue schooling, Irene sought out work immediately. With her good grades and father’s military connections, Irene was able to land a job as an accountant and record keeper for the CIA in 1950 in their New York office, under which the director of said office was a family friend.

Irene, despite doing good work, aspired for a higher position, although rare at the time for women to be promoted higher than just a general agent. Irene worked a year in her clerk position, upon turning 18 and being at the required age, she applied to become an agent with the CIA. She was declined, with a mix of sexism being involved and her skills being questioned, she was sent back to her desk job. However during the ever looming conflict with the Soviets, Irene applied again a few months later, and with a current dip in staff, she was accepted to fill the void. Irene was mentored briefly by the director of the New York CIA branch, her family friend John Monroe, and was found to be an exceptional agent despite scrutiny from her peers and even her mentor himself.

Irene became a more active agent and was given an opportunity to become an interrogator for the CIA in 1953, in which she was incredibly adept at. Something inside her clicked when she was working in this field, something she liked. She quickly became one of the best interrogators they possessed, and quickly the former sexist comments and snide remarks about her faded, as she established herself as a rather scary woman.

During a particular assignment where they were to detain and question a suspected Russian spy, a shootout occurred in which Irene was severely injured, losing her left eye from a grazing bullet and being hit in the abdomen and chest, Irene was bedridden for a good while and had to deal with lacking full vision.

Amazing at her job, although it didn’t earn her many friends, she worked with the CIA until 1956. She was becoming incredibly agitated with their current management, as her mentor Director Monroe had resigned, and their new director was much less than friendly with her and other members of staff. During an altercation where she was set to be moved down in position back to clerk, she decided to leave the CIA altogether and seek out private work in a different location.

Seeing the opportunity, the Foundation offered to recruit Irene as a Recovery Agent and Interrogator in 1957 in the wake of her leave from the CIA, which she gladly accepted. She disappeared, leaving her family and few friends for the potential of better work and a better life in Italy, leaving under the guise of a CIA transfer to overseas.
