In 1990, fresh out of the academy, Agent Linda Avery was part of a S.H.I.E.L.D. retrieval team along with Agent Richard Lumley deployed to the Hunan Province of China to recover an 0-8-4. When they arrived, they found the previous S.H.I.E.L.D. presence and an entire village had been wiped out, save for the senior officer, who was still clutching onto the item - a baby girl. Soon afterwards, the members of Avery's team started dying off, apparently killed by whatever force wanted the girl. Deciding that the only way to protect the baby and what's left of their team was to erase the child's existence, Avery used the lead agent's credentials to fake a Level 8 system, ordering a foster care organization to move the baby every few months. Before she was killed, Agent Avery dropped off the baby at Saint Agnes Orphanage.

Twenty four years later, the girl, growing up to the take the name Skye, pays respect to Avery at her memorial on the Wall of Valor at S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Sci-Tech Academy.[1]
