Upon arriving in Chicago, she met John Clark on a train and was set up on a date with John's partner, Ivan Grokolov, the person she was hired to kill (however this was before she was aware he was the target). After the date she went to recieve the first payment and the target. However for a reason that was never discovered, she killed Cercetti and attempted to kill Ivan and Jake Proud.
