Re: Finally

Yeah, we know, by the time we finished it it was already out of date. The individual incarnations should be relatively accurate still; expect an update after we finish shredding recent events with our teeth. K swears her desk is going to be splinters. I keep telling her there's fiber pills for that.

Assume updates to all relevant profiles coming in the next week as well. Also a security check might be in order, now that our suspicions about Teagues the Toothy have been confirmed.


Date: 1/17/2013 (updated 1/30/13)
Subject Name: Audrey Prudence Parker (Lucy Ripley, Sarah Vernon)
DOB: Unknown
Gender: Female
Age: Presents as a woman in her late 20s - early 30s; rate of aging unknown.
Place of Examination: Data compiled at Chandler/Hammett Investigations offices
Occupation: Currently officer with Haven PD, formerly believed she was an FBI agent. (Lucy Ripley incarnation unknown; Sarah Vernon incarnation believed she was a nurse with the US military during the Korean War.)
Marital Status: Complicated. Prior relationships with Chris Brody, Nathan Wuornos, this latter showing signs of being resumed in open acknowledgement rather than suppressed without admission of any direct or related sentiment. Updated 1/30/13: Subject has acknowledged her feelings but considers them impossible to act upon due to the apocalyptic nature of Haven's current difficulties. Lucy Ripley incarnation unknown; Sarah Vernon incarnation had sexual relations with subject PT-TR-#### (updated 1/30/13 resulting in the birth of James Cogan), unconfirmed but suspected romantic connection subsequently with TD-BD-#### and/or TL-BD-####.
Race: Presumed Troubled, though may be meta-Troubled.
Classification: IN-####

Presents with: Given the unique nature of the subject, we must preface this profile with a discussion of the shared traits between all incarnations. Following this, we will discuss each known incarnation as a whole based on available data.

The one trait that all incarnations must share is inherent to the subject and not externally imposed (save perhaps by the barn): her immunity to the Troubles. It is impossible to know at this time whether the other shared qualities are inherent to the subject or are in some way selected for in the externally-imposed memories. We cannot even say with any degree of certainty if the subject ever had an original personality or if she merely exists within a limited set of parameters. Regardless, some several points of congruity may be noted among all three known incarnations of subject IN-####. First and perhaps most important to her duties within Haven are a strong sense of compassion and empathy for others, specific to the Troubled but not limited to them. This combines with a nuanced concept of justice, mercy, right and wrong, etc. to allow the subject flexibility in dealing with the unusual circumstances around Haven. In point of fact, lateral thinking is another prominent feature throughout subject's incarnations. Additionally, there are some traits known to be shared by two incarnations though not all three known ones, at present. These traits are explicitly instilled from external memories; however, they may serve to echo desired or once-present traits in the subject. Both Sarah Vernon and Audrey Parker were involved in service fields with high stress environments and probably traumatic memories associated with those occupations. While we have the greatest amount of data on incarnation IN-AP##, current indications are that implanted histories for this subject are rarely benign. We have no direct evidence on the Vernon or Ripley incarnations' contacts in the outside world, but all circumstantial evidence points to isolation framed in subject's mind as independence being another common trait; this would be a logical requirement for the implanted personality as presumably who or whatever undertakes the selection process does not want to disseminate knowledge of the Troubles to the general public.

Updated 1/30/13: Pursuant to data provided by subject AG-####, we may now stipulate that these traits are deliberately sought out and desirable in every incarnation of the subject, with particular emphasis on compassion and empathy. The motivations and/or first causes for these traits are as yet unclear, though at present we suspect they are tied to subject's first iteration. All data regarding motivations and first causes at this time is circumstantial at best and contaminated by subject AG-####'s motives at worst, and without knowing the precise nature of his/the barn's motives, we can adjust for a limited degree of bias. However, since subject's nature seems to emphasize self-sacrificial agape-type love, we may consider it confirmed that most to all of the shared traits are deliberately selected for.

As Audrey Parker Subject's initial personality corresponded to that of a tough, stoic FBI agent who frequently took and closed inexplicable cases. (See also case files XF-#### through XF-##### and subject file MD-####.) Her chronologically earliest implanted memory that we are aware of at this time involved a traumatic experience with a male foster parent who was preying on the children in his care. Contrary to what statistics might suggest, this did not involve direct trauma to subject but instead, her assaulting the sexual predator with a pair of scissors in his neck. Though this was not a fatal injury, it could easily have been, and shows the subject's willingness to kill to protect those she feels responsible for. This may be an integral part of subject IN-#### or simply of Audrey Parker; regardless, this instance as recounted appears to have been an important marker in her choosing to become a law enforcement official. Subsequent memories include feelings of isolation and ostracism due to being a child without parents, resulting in a strong motivation once subject reaches Haven to learn all she can about her past. It is not known if this lack of living parents or parental-type bonds is unique to this incarnation's set of memories. The first person she is seen to have any relationship with is Agent Howard, who we now suspect to be an avatar of the barn itself; this on the face of it is a somewhat contentious albeit ultimately rewarding mentor-protegee relationship. Beyond that, of course, is subject AG-####'s tendency to manipulate all instances of subject IN-#### for its own ends, though we may still only speculate as to what those are. Subject appeared to respond well to being challenged by authority in ways that do not undermine her own sense of competence and self-reliance. Her primary focus at the beginning of her stay in Haven is her work as a LEO, though she rapidly developed a secondary strong focus on learning about Lucy Ripley (who at the time she believed was her mother). Subject continued, despite her stated goal of learning all she could about Ripley, to work frequent police cases involving Troubles. She typifies the form of social isolation which results in a drive to excellence in career, and thus is notably bad at forming casual, superficial relationships. Subject is seen numerous times in her initial weeks to forget the names of uniformed officers she works with daily due to them having no emotional impact, yet she is capable of extending a great deal of warmth and compassion to those she sees as in need of protection and care. Her relationship with subject WR-TR-####, Chief Garland Wuornos, evolved to become similar to the observed relationship between herself and Howard: contentious though not overtly hostile.

Similar to this, her relationship with then-Detective Wuornos began with contention typical of LEOs of different jurisdictions without a previously established working relationship, either antagonistic or cooperative. Surface tension mitigated by non-hostile teasing and banter, Wuornos quickly fixated on the subject as both a source of acute and skilled professional assistance as well as a source of emotional support due to her heretofore unknown immunity to his (and all others') Trouble. Subject did not appear to take note of this fixation, at least in part because of her own fixation on her need for information about Ripley and also likely due to a subconscious (potentially barn-driven) need to form connections; Wuornos presented himself as a receptive target and the subject responded in kind. Their relationship was strained following subject WR-TR-####'s death, due largely to Wuornos's unwillingness to admit that his father was on a terminal course, but mended after Wuornos was sharply reminded of the hostile forces in Haven and that the subject was not only helpful, but also trustworthy. By the time the original Audrey Parker arrived in Haven several hours after the original Chief's death the subject and Wuornos had repaired their relationship, significant of deep and enduring bonds of trust and a willingness to allow for emotionally induced transgressions. This repeats for a more lengthy duration when subject discovers that she is on a deadline shortly after she and Wuornos have taken steps towards a romantic relationship; subject cuts Wuornos off from further emotional connection while maintaining their working relationship. Although this is a common reflex of emotionally sensitive individuals upon confronted with an external and logistical reason why a romantic relationship will fail, it must be questioned whether or not this is also prompted by subject IN-####'s latent awareness that 'love' is the primary force which provides amelioration to the Troubles. Regardless, once the period of separation is concluded by the discovery of Jordan McKee's deceit and the subsequent comprehension that they've wasted a significant portion of the subject's remaining time in Haven, their relationship resumes with no apparent long term detriment to trust or ability to share emotions and information, up to the point where subject IN-#### departs Haven. The overarching indicator here is that Wuornos is the object of love which provides the aforementioned amelioration and which the barn artifact amplifies; the imposition of a simplistic structure over complex creatures such as human beings counterindicates that this functions as well as intended.

Subject's relationship with Duke Crocker commenced in chronology at about the same time but moved at a considerably slower pace as far as mutual trust and attachment. This appears to be due in part to the nature of their professions, law enforcement and law-breaker, but also due to subject IN-####'s difficulty with forming long-term intimate relationships as well as Crocker's considerable trust issues. After she made several gestures out of her innate compassion and empathy Crocker appeared to decide she was at least worth trusting, but it took considerably longer for her to return the intimacy with openness of her own. The first tangible instances may have been precipitated by the birthday gift of the locket that was given to Crocker by Lucy Ripley, at which point subject began to include Crocker in a greater capacity in matters personal to her. Presumably this increase in mutual intimacy was retarded in process by Crocker's apparent alliance with the Reverend Driscoll, which subject responded to with strong disapproval or reproach, as well as increased distance. As with subject PT-TR-#### all acrimony and distance was mended over quickly and trust was restored, in this case assisted by the discovery and sharing of the Crocker notebook as well as Crocker's assertion that subject IN-#### is his friend, not his enemy. Both of these would seem to indicate that trust in the individual was never lost so much as the ability to approve of said person's judgment. All indications are that subject engaged in an attempt to progress the relationship to romantic beginning stages during the visit in Colorado, but was subsequently halted due to reasons complex and perhaps unknown even to subject herself. Her actions indicate a preference to pursue romantic relations with subject PT-TR-####, but that strong emotional attachments exist in equal measure to both.

Lack of long-term availability of friendship connections hampers observation of subject's treatment of those, however several overtures of friendship and steps toward same have been noted, beginning with Eleanor and Julia Carr upon subject's arrival in Haven. Subject responded without acrimony or antagonism to Eleanor Carr's requirements for trust, indicating that at least at the time she believed she was used to earning trust capital over time and by her actions; this conforms to existing patterns of behavior documented extensively in many law enforcement environments. Subject also maintained a steady friendship with the younger Carr, Julia, most likely begun out of mutual respect for the elder Carr and a shared pragmatic approach to the Troubles, which the subject was only just beginning to understand with relation to herself. Subsequent to Julia Carr's departure from Haven subject displays no further inclination to seek out other mutual non-romantic friendships, although Claire Callahan made overtures at least towards professional respect and communication that seemed to be evolving towards friendship prior to Callahan's murder and identity theft by Arla Cogan. Subject indicated that overtures of respect at a minimum might be made or welcomed in connection with Jordan McKee, but neither resulted, due to McKee's proprietary attitude towards any and all intimate connections to subject PT-TR-####, romantic or otherwise. Subject was also not informed until after all opportunities for mutual trust had ceased that McKee was aware not only of IN-####'s innate connection to Haven, but also of the intentions of the Guard organization to take advantage of said connection. As far as other relations with citizens of Haven have been observed, subject engaged in a brief romantic relationship with one Christopher Brody, has made overtures indicating respect and initial levels of trust beyond what is necessitated by circumstance towards Dwight Hendrickson, and has displayed cognizance of the influence and knowledge of subjects TL-BD-#### and TD-BD-#### while indicating both verbally and by actions that she does not trust them fully (possibly limited to trusting their information but not their ability to act in support). Recently, she has shown signs of manipulating their emotions in relation to her, specifically with some knowledge of their emotional connection to the Vernon incarnation; this has resulted in somewhat less tense relations with them on their side.

Subject's approach to the Troubles began much as that of a normal LEO who sometimes confronts that which is inexplicable by conventional means and is capable of either compartmentalizing or assimilating that data as needed for her work. As she became aware of who she was and her own unique powers, her approach became less specific to law enforcement and more tailored to the supernatural aspect of each case, to the point that toward the end of her time in Haven the subject was assuming each case involved a Trouble until proven otherwise. Though arguably not the healthiest reaction, it is one that was borne out by the evidence available to the subject at the time. Her awareness of and course of action as regards her immunity to the Troubles followed a similar sequence: lack of awareness followed by confusion and mild denial followed by the intense desire to deny the truth of her existence as Lucy Ripley and Sarah Vernon in past cycles, and the inability to do so when presented with overwhelming evidence. Subject is prone to denying her feelings and/or herself the ability to act on her feelings, but rarely does she actively disbelieve the truth when it is demonstrably provable. Denial would have required believing that multiple members of the community were attempting a hoax, and that it was moreover a malicious kind of hoax; though subject sometimes doubts the goodness of individuals she is rarely if ever seen to doubt the goodness of humanity as a whole. Thus, as she accepts her identity as the woman who fixes Haven's Troubles, she begins to shore up that identity by pursuing knowledge of the Troubles as an overarching problem as well as on a case-by-case basis of helping Troubled individuals. At least some portion of her underlying motivation in pushing her friends and especially subject PT-TR-#### away as she learned of the time limit to her presence in Haven was likely an attempt to remove all external distractions and focus on the one remaining task at which she believed she was competent. Concurrent with this, subject occasionally manifests a tendency to declare that she feels an action of hers is for another person's benefit even when that person has expressed negative emotions toward that action. It is usually a passive action, one of negation rather than forcibly dictating another's actions. This culminated in a spoken declaration that her purpose in life was to fix and/or end the Troubles, subsuming any of her own emotional wants and needs. It is in no small part due to steady support from subject ST-BD-#### that subject eventually realized that she works best when she allows herself to be reliant on both Crocker and Wuornos, and to engage in teamwork and emotional support in all aspects of her life. 

Updated 1/30/13: Subject evinced strong maternal devotion despite never having known James Cogan; the likely reasons for this are multipartite. First, subject's implanted memories may still be affecting her, and as these include lack of strong parental figures, we consider it likely that she would want differently for her son. (Indeed, subject outright says that she wants Cogan to "have a life," meaning separate from the barn.) Second, subject has shown some desire to learn about her past selves and grew to feel disconnected from Haven as she came to understand who she had been previously. These two are, while connected, still disparate due to the fact that subject appears to discount her implanted memories as motivating factors despite relying on the training and information they provide her. Third, subject's natural empathy and desire for connection with others would easily lead her to fulfilling a maternal role; we saw this take the form of a fairly generic mothering (albeit of a kind unique to Haven) in which subject wanted her son to be safe, healthy, and happy, in approximately that order of importance. She did not try to dictate to him what form his happiness should take, instead simply demonstrating what Cogan's wife had become in an attempt to regain her old form. (See files XX-#### and SR-#### for further details.) This is in keeping with subject's reactive and relatively passive actions when acting in the best interests of another individual.

Upon being confronted with two choices and pressured to make a decision before Haven was demolished by meteors, subject chose the path that harmed as few people as possible. While we believe she would have chosen to search for a third option had she had time to do so, this was not the case and it seems likely that few or no people not within the barn had the answers she was looking for. (We still consider it a probability that subject TD-BD-#### holds more information regarding the source of the Troubles and the cycles as set in motion by, presumably, subjects IN-#### and AG-####, but it is becoming equally likely that he holds information he is unaware could lead to a permanent resolution.) Subject also expected ST-BD-#### to provide the same unswerving support that he has come to offer her by default, up to and including physically preventing PT-TR-#### from interfering with her decision. This is a more direct form of manipulation than subject normally takes, though at a guess she felt Wuornos was incapable of considering the situation rationally and wanted him to live and carry on her work in some manner.

As Lucy Ripley Subject is assertive and as dominant as possible given social settings, and as far as the scope of current observable situations carries this report. Current data on incarnation Lucy Ripley is very limited. Subject refused to assist Troubled individual Roland Holloway (suspected designation with subvariant SR-JT13 see file HV-306) as well as refusing to comply with the instructions of the self-designated Guard, although the latter may be taken as simple self-preservation on both parts. Incarnation Lucy Ripley also contacted Template Lucy Ripley and stated that she had the information necessary to permanently alleviate the Troubles in Haven as well as the source individual or event, although there is no outside confirmation of that second detail. The probability that incarnation Lucy Ripley intended to permanently end the Troubles begins at only 17%, increasing with the assumption that the original cause and thus alternate methods of cessation were available to her. Subject was familiar with James Cogan but the extent of the relationship is not yet known, nor is it known whether Lucy Ripley was aware of any other connection carrying over. Further information must be acquired before constructive analysis can be made on this specific incarnation.

As Sarah Vernon Subject retains the assertive and dominant tendencies, to a greater degree than one might expect based on social settings and as far as the scope of current observable situations carries this report. Her relationships to others were minimally formed at the time of observation due to her recent arrival in Haven, with the relationship of nurse to patient with Stuart Mosely being the most clearly defined. However, she did not appear reluctant to form immediate assessments of new people entering her life; this is quite probably a skill taken from her memories of being a nurse during the Korean War, an occupation that would have required quick and accurate judgments. While it is somewhat unusual for a person to have such skills outside of their field of specialty, it becomes predictable when we take into account the unique requirements of subject IN-####. It is clear that she trusted both subjects PT-TR-#### and ST-BD-#### in some measure, including their advice to visit subjects TL-BD-#### and TD-BD-#### for further assistance with the Troubles. What form these relationships eventually took is unclear at this time, but we may safely assume that there was a strong emotional connection between all three, and possibly a romantic one, whereas her main interest in PT-TR-#### seems to have been physical attraction and the expulsion of stress-related tension via physical rather than cerebral activity. This is not to downplay the trust she gave Wuornos, merely to note that she knew him for less than a day and regardless of her ability to form immediate impressions was quite likely holding some part of herself in reserve, this being a tendency which varies in strength with all subjects' incarnations.

Updated 1/30/13: Subject is now known to have become pregnant as a result of her sexual liaison with subject PT-TR-####, the result of which was subject XX-####. Subject left James with the Cogan family in Nederland, CO, giving birth sometime prior to the arrival of the barn in 1955/56; though we considered this a high probability previously this is now 90% confirmed. We can thus guess that subject may have found herself with greater emotional attachment to at least the memory of Wuornos, as she does not appear to have resented the pregnancy (somewhat unusually, for a woman of her time, though it is highly likely she passed off the father as a soldier who didn't make it back from Korea) and anecdotal evidence suggests that she remembered Wuornos fondly.

Subject also participated in an attempt to destroy the barn by use of explosive devices, which failed. Subjects TD-BD-#### and TL-BD-#### appeared to be the instigators of this solution, with TD-BD-#### probably at the forefront. Subject seemed somewhat hesitant and unsure about the bomb, partially out of concern for her friends and partially (at a guess) because she did not expect it to be effective. She has not been observed to try more than that single undertaking to avoid entering the barn, and was indeed seen to leave Haven immediately after the detonation failed to damage the barn in any manner whatsoever. We do not discount the possibility that subject had attempted less drastic resolutions prior to this, but we do note that she seemed to approach the necessity of leaving Haven with greater equanimity than either of her other known incarnations.

Observations & Speculation: Due to the prodigious quantities of data on this subject, this profile is to be taken as a work in progress. Frequent updates may be made, and a long form profile will be distributed to the office via hard copy to prevent security breaches.

Based upon all three incarnations of subject, we may safely assume that her externally imposed memories are selected to assist her in her predetermined path to help the Troubled and ultimately end each cycle. It is entirely possible that variations in implanted memories between each incarnation are tailored to societal changes as well as the personalities of the prominent members of the current generation of Havenites. Subject tends to form strong emotional bonds with two men within Haven during each incarnation, though it remains unclear if this at least one eros-type love is always involved, or if filios- and/or agape-types are equally common. What remains consistent is that subject must always make difficult choices as a result of these attachments, up to and including whether or not to remain in Haven or enter the barn.

Updated 1/30/13: As noted above, we consider it safe to confirm the intent of the selection process for the subject's implanted memories. Furthermore, we have established that the emotional attachments subject forms in each incarnation are necessary to the regular maintenance of the 27 year cycle. Given this, we believe that the "solution" to end the Troubles as presented by AG-#### is a false flag operation; for the subject to engage in murder of a person she loves is contradictory to every indication we have received that subject is in many ways the embodiment of agape-type love. We are uncertain what a benevolent solution to Haven's Troubles would look like, but we feel confident in asserting that it would not resemble that specified by AG-####.

As Audrey Parker Arguably more than her predecessors, this incarnation's duration has revolved around choices and their consequences. The subject chose to stay and search for her past; she chose to stay even after learning that her past was at best confusing and at worst she didn't exist outside of the cycles of Troubles. She operates under enormous strain which has only been bearable due to the support and love shown her by Wuornos and Crocker, and once she acquires knowledge of how to end the Troubles permanently, yet again chooses to end them by entering the barn in hopes of better answers. When put to the test of killing someone she loves, letting everyone she cares about and all she has worked to protect be destroyed, or allowing her sense of self to be destroyed in the hopes that they can get it right the next time, she chooses the last option. We may safely guess that if any of the other incarnations have had this array of options, they chose to re-enter the barn as well; however, based on available data it seems that subject IN-####'s available knowledge base has steadily increased over the last three incarnations. Subject bears the burden of being the propitiated savior of an entire group of people well, yet sometimes falls prey to a tendency to a martyr complex. It is again the strength of her relationships which allows her to retain a level of detachment and ability to establish space for her own needs and wants from time to time; interference between these relationships has been attempted by various individuals and groups not of this firm and we do not recommend it as a course of action. Subject has been seen to suffer from symptoms consistent with mild to moderate depression, anxiety, PTSD, etc., though she tends not to manifest the physical autoimmune ailments common to this combinatory diagnosis. If subject succeeds in returning to Haven with this personality intact, we recommend bolstering her relationships with subjects PT-TR-#### and ST-BD-#### in whatever ways possible, as well as potentially providing her with additional competent and trustworthy support personnel. 

Updated 1/30/13: At this time it is impossible to predict what path subject will follow. She has entered the barn in keeping with her martyr complex and the immediate needs of the town; however, she is far from alone in the barn and has only one certain ally and an unknown number of other living subjects. Moreover, without further data about how the barn will be affected by PT-TR-####'s actions toward AG-####, we cannot be sure which of the several subjects in the barn will make contact with her first. The most likely probability is AG-####, followed closely by ST-BD-####, but this presupposes that contact is a possibility.

As Lucy Ripley Due to the lack of available data on this specific incarnation, no profile may be obtained. Noted: All available data is heavily weighted towards the end of her existence in Haven, at which point she would have had much more information on the events and cycle of the Troubles as well as be in process of forming her own personality as opposed to reacting based on appropriated and outside-imposed memories. 

Updated 1/30/13: All new data obtained regarding subject is hearsay from James Cogan and/or Arla Cogan, and thus cannot be taken as reliable in any respect. Nonetheless, for the sake of completeness we add here that Lucy Ripley supposedly viewed Arla Cogan's reaction to her Trouble triggering as repulsive and deliberately shut her out of the barn in which James Cogan's body was placed to heal. Furthermore, James believed that subject killed him in an attempt to end the Troubles as per the solution proffered by AG-####, something that we severely doubt the veracity of based on subject's other incarnations. The impression we receive of Ripley via the Cogans is that of a woman driven and determined to end the Troubles and find their source to a greater degree than either of subject's other incarnations; this is supported by evidence provided by the original Lucy Ripley. However, as noted, we cannot consider their evidence reliable and thus no further profile can be established.

As Sarah Vernon Due to the lack of available data on this specific incarnation, a highly limited profile may be obtained. Noted: All available data is heavily weighted towards the beginning of her existence in Haven, at which point she would not have had a significant amount of information on the events and cycle of the Troubles, nor would she have had the time to develop her own personality. Thus, all data will necessarily skew toward the externally imposed persona of Sarah Vernon, rather than the core traits of subject IN-####. On initial appearance in Haven, subject was assertive to the point of aggression and willingness to use physical force, albeit it in maternal/feminine coded expression. Given her social milieu, she was more immediately inclined to this style of behavior than might be expected from either Ripley or Parker incarnations. We may speculate, then, that her implanted war memories created a short temper with relatively mild consequences as long as those she is upset at follow her orders. It is possible that the Troubles would have at least temporarily caused some disruption in her previously established coping mechanisms, as Troubled individuals frequently respond poorly to barked orders and it is known that at least one group hostile to the Troubled was in operation at the time of her arrival. (What disruption to their usual activities in escalation, disorganization, or both, is both unknown and beyond the scope of this profile.) It is equally possible that subject would have taken the Troubled as patients, with whom she is typically patient and gentle, and anyone interfering with them as enemies of either the military or bureaucratic variety, to be worked around. We must note that it is extremely likely that the subject suffered from at least some of the symptoms consistent with PTSD and/or acute stress syndrome; given the path the Troubles appear to take on each recurrence it is probable that if she did not fully meet diagnostic criteria for either at the time of her arrival in Haven, she did do so by the time of the barn's arrival.

Updated 1/30/13: Though we now have some data on subject's departure from Haven, we have no data on the intervening months (nine, at a minimum) by which she reached that point. However, based on the parallels between TD-BD-#### and TL-BD-####, and PT-TR-#### and ST-BD-####, we may assume that we are correct about her emotional attachments to the Teagues brothers. Little other new speculation is available at this time, though one of the things that induced subject's greater willingness to enter the barn may well have been her having killed Roy Crocker at the beginning of her time in Haven. This is especially true given that subject's implanted memories were those of a nurse, albeit a wartime nurse, and thus would presumably have been disinclined to violence, even controlled violence (cf Audrey Parker incarnation) as a solution; regardless, we can safely presuppose that this incident colored the subject's perceptions of Haven and the Troubles.

History (Clinical): Subject saw Claire Callahan (see file CB-####) for therapy. In the interests of not cross-contaminating the data, we opted to maintain a policy of strict non-interference with this subject during that time. Since Callahan's murder, there has not been time to initiate contact, nor do we expect such to be taken in a positive light given subject's probable emotional associations with the concept of the entire field of psychology at this time. No data available for obvious reasons on Ripley or Vernon incarnations, though see above for suspected symptoms of PTSD on both Vernon and Parker.
History (Family): Mother of James Cogan aka The Colorado Kid, as Sarah Vernon. No other family known, though subject seems to often bond to two men during her months in Haven. Entrusted James to the Cogans in Boulder, CO, which may indicate a relationship close enough to be called familial.
History (Medical): Cut her foot as Lucy Ripley while helping James Garrick with his Trouble; the scar transferred to the Audrey Parker incarnation. Tends to undergo a variety of forms of physical stress while helping the Troubled due to her nature; receives formal medical care for very little of it, choosing instead to focus on her specific abilities.
Recommended Action: Shift to Adsartha for surveillance and further updates.

  1. One thing that seems frankly unbelievable to me is that Sarah was so resigned to entering the barn. The characterization of Sarah seems completely off to me in that respect, because separating a mother from a newborn infant for whom she seemed to genuinely care would be far more traumatic than portrayed here. I still remember the first day I left my son at daycare when my maternity leave ended as one of the most difficult days of my life. With postpartum hormones and the strong bond you would expect between compassionate/maternal Sarah and her newborn son, her relative good spirits in resigning herself to enter the barn seem extreme false to me. Leaving her son with strangers to raise was an act of desperation, and I would expect to have seen a Sarah who is far more agitated and upset than that portrayed in the Season 3 finale.
