- "When it came down to Avery and I we realized the only way to keep our people and the kid from being hunted–"
"Was to erase her from existence."
"Avery was smart. She used a lead agent's credentials to fake a Level 8 clearance. She set up a nearly invisible protocol. The foster system was ordered to move the child around every few months."
- ―Richard Lumley and Phil Coulson
Once arriving to China, Lumley and Avery found that the entire village and the first S.H.I.E.L.D. team had been killed, and their lead agent had died trying to protect the 0-8-4, an infant that was lying in his arms.
The remaining members of the team returned to the United States, but as they began to be killed one by one, Avery faked the credentials of the deceased lead agent and delivered the baby to the Saint Agnes Orphanage, with an invisible protocol in the foster care system to make sure that she never stayed too long in one place and to ensure her safety. However, Avery was brutally murdered by Calvin Zabo, and Lumley became the only survivor of the team.
