As a child, she pledged herself to Larissa. She was a spy for Charles II in Antwerp before returning to London; her name in the Service was tarnished by this affair as well as her reputation as a spendthrift.
She did another spying job for Sir Samuel, the husband of Aphra's lover Carola Morland, that involved going to the Soloman House and listening to a new philosopher called the Majus. Despite disguising herself as an associate of Charles Babbage, she was captured by Nick Plainsong, bound, gagged, and thrown into a cell for hours before Larissa briefly appeared to ungag her and Nate Silver arrived to set her free. Assuming the lecture would be boring, she got drunk, passed out, and missed it; upon awaking, she was placed under arrest by Alex Bendo. However, with Larissa's help, she escaped and helped Silver flee from the Service. (PROSE: Newtons Sleep)
