Personal History

She doesn't know why, but Terry has always been able to been manipulate fire. For a while she was able to keep it under control, but during a schoolyard scuffle when she was 16 she accidentally burned a fellow student. The Foundation caught wind of it and came after her, but she was barely able to escape thanks to a blunder by an intelligence agent. After that she was found by a group of similarly anomalous people, working together to hide from the Foundation.
After traveling with them for seven years, she discovered a way in a Kentucky farmhouse, and escaped into the Library. There she found that Serpent's Hand and joined their cause, working to aid those whose supernatural nature would undeservedly make them a target of the Foundation. These days she spends almost all of her time in the Library when not on SH business.
