- "Like you said, "Productivity is connectivity"."
- ―Kaya to Deke Shaw
Kaya is an employee at Deke Shaw's Company.
Working for Deke Shaw
Along with the other staff members, Kaya was briefly relocated to the Lighthouse, still working on tech she believed to be original when in fact Shaw had stolen ideas from here and there. As he introduced Leo Fitz and Jemma Simmons to the company, Kaya presented them with the ShawDrive, a reduced version of the Remorath Phase Harmonic Teleportation Device. As an argument between Shaw and Fitz began, Kaya was asked to leave them alone.
Kaya then listened as Shaw seemingly had a breakdown, angrily explaining why he had founded the tech company due to not finding his place in a new world. She then watched as Shaw quickly equipped himself with the still unfinished ShawDrive and teleported away, and joined in the round of applause initiated by her colleagues, impressed by how the device had worked.
