She is the personal assistant of Adrian Veidt (Matthew Goode), the villain who is also known as Ozymandias. Adrian is a past member of the Watchmen team, and a billionaire who is endowed with an extraordinary level of IQ. He is known as the smartest man alive and was a former costumed crim fighter. After vigilantism had been outlawed, Veidt retired from heroics and became a businessman.
She is shot in the leg and then three fingers on her right hand are blown off by Roy Chess (Douglas Chapman) during his assassination attempt on Adrian Veidt in his office. Although it appears to be non-fatal, it is inconclusive.
