"A breach like this raises serious questions."
"Like how the hell did a French pirate manage to hijack a covert S.H.I.E.L.D. vessel in broad daylight?"
―Yen and Rockwell[src]

Yen was a member of the World Security Council and one of the prime overseers of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s operations. During the launch of Project Insight, Yen was killed by Alexander Pierce after HYDRA's infiltration of S.H.I.E.L.D. was revealed.

Yen, along with the rest of the council was called to the Triskelion by Pierce to witness the launch of Project Insight.
