A former real estate agent before Destruction Day, she actually had been on vacation in St. Louis when everything went to hell,. She hunkered down for the two weeks, managed to survive and then started to reevaluate. Having been in an Airbnb that was now mostly destroyed, she knew she would have to find somewhere sustainable to survive going forward. She settled on Busch Stadium as somewhere that would both work and that she was familiar with in the city. Along the way, she gathered several people and those people would end up forming the foundation of Cardinal Nest.
