Biography

Time with Muirfield

Vanessa was one of the doctors of the original experiments of Muirfield conducted on young orphans, one of whom was Gabriel Lowen. However, she later helped the orphans escape, including Gabe, before they could be injected with the cross-species DNA. Though Gabe had already been injected, Vanessa provided him medication that could control his transformations. 

Years later, in 2002, when the military deployed troops to Afghanistan, Vanessa injected a group of soldiers with a modified version of the original serum, with the military hoping to create super soldiers, one of whom was Vincent Keller. The military started using the soldiers on missions, but they soon became uncontrollable and destructive. Though Vanessa tried to stop the military, they ordered Muirfield to be terminated. Vanessa threatened to expose them, and a colonel tried to kill her. Vincent, though, stepped in and saved her life. 

Death

On the night of her death, Vanessa received a call from Catherine, who was having car troubles. While helping Catherine, two men pulled up and shot her dead in front of her daughter. They then tried to kill Catherine; however, Vincent killed them before they could.

Legacy

The manner of her death drove Catherine to become a cop so that she could protect herself from the same faith. Before, Catherine was attending law school and studying to become a lawyer like her father. In 2012, nine years after her death, Catherine learned about Vanessa's involvement in Muirfield, and was upset about what her mother had turned Vincent into.

Trivia

  • Vincent Keller agreed to help Catherine find out why Vanessa was killed.
  • It's a strong possibility that, on the night of her death, Vincent might have been tracking her.
