As Knight-Errant[edit]

She traveled between worlds as a diplomat, troubleshooter, and tactical reaction for the Republic of the Sphere as a Knight-Errant.[4] She worked closely in her Knight-Errant years with Republic Intelligence, which included Paladin Victor Steiner-Davion and Ghost Knight Mason Dunne, who was also her lover.

She was known for the battles on Basalt and Ronel in 3133 after the Blackout. She was responsible for naming Raul Ortega as Knight-Errant for his actions on Achernar.

She was promoted to Paladin in November 3134 to replace Daniel Peterson.
