Character Bio

Miss Parker photo
A child of The Centre, Miss Parker has grown up within the Blue Cove complex, both her father and mother playing pivotal roles in the organization. When she was a young girl, her mother Catherine was murdered, though Miss Parker was led to believe that she committed suicide. The circumstances of Catherine's death are quite muddled, with details varying wildly depending on who remembers it; Miss Parker eventually learns that her mother was in fact killed shortly after giving birth to her half-brother, Ethan. Raines apparently killed Catherine as she lay on the gurney.

Miss Parker has a twin brother named Lyle, who was at first believed to be stillborn. She also has a half-brother, Ethan, whom she shares with Jarod and who was created in the Centre project Mirage by impregnating Catherine Parker with the sperm of Jarod's father. Her father, Mr. Parker, is apparently the local administrator to the Blue Cove branch of the Centre. Her biological father is in fact Raines, who is Mr. Parker's brother. Mr. Raines also had a daughter with his wife Edna named Annie Raines who was murdered.As a young girl, Miss Parker met secretly with Jarod inside the Centre while he was also a child. Miss Parker also gave Jarod his first kiss, though this was long before she was put in charge of his capture and return to the Centre. Miss Parker quickly grows to despise Jarod as he repeatedly eludes and humiliates her. Despite this, Jarod comes to her aid when she is in danger, even when it endangers his own safety. The result is that Miss Parker's attitude toward Jarod softens, though not by much. When she and Jarod discover their shared links on the Isle of Carthis, they nearly have a romantic interlude. Eventually however, Miss Parker ignores Jarod's pleas and allows him to be apprehended by the Centre's men. Jarod manages to escape again, and Miss Parker is returned to her task of hunting him. She later receives another phone call from her longtime enemy, but this time they do not trade insults as usual. Miss Parker warns that she will continue to be coming after him, but wishes him luck in his journey to find his family.
