Biography[]

Early Life[]

Arctic BioSystems[]

Day 1 While Alan Farragut prepared for a briefing for brand new CDC field officers, Sarah helped him locate a needed prop. She later attended a meeting about an outbreak of a possible retrovirus at a remote research facility. She learned that Alan's brother Peter was one of the infected staff members. During the journey to Arctic BioSystems, Sarah was told by Doreen Boyle that Alan had caught Julia Walker and Peter in bed together; Alan and Julia had been married at the time but later divorced. Alan assigned Sarah to work with him on determining the extent of the illness.

Alan, Julia and Sarah entered the holding area where the bodies of the two scientists who were working with Peter were being stored in some body bags. When Sarah opened one of the bags, they found that the soft tissue has dissolved into a black goo that flowed onto floor. Sarah vomited into her protective mask inside her hazmat suit. Back in the locker room, Sarah apologized to Alan for vomiting.

Sarah entered Peter's living quarters while Alan was examining a thumb drive containing his brother's video diary entries. Later, Julia and Sarah talked about Alan, and Sarah denied any romantic attraction to him, Julia knew Sarah was lying. At Sarah's suggestion, Julia searched for viruses that did not meet modern definitions.[3]

Day 2

Alan leaves Sarah in charge of isolation and sends Julia to work with lab rats to learn the rates of infection, although she objects and wants to participate in the search for the missing three. Sarah tries to attend to Dr. Haven, who is in pain due to the virus. She goes to the drug locker for some morphine and is interrupted by Peter, who bangs on the cage where she has taken shelter. Peter tells Sarah that Walker is at ABS for a reason. She then watches him jump straight upward into an opened air duct, Sarah was terrified until Alan came to her.[4]

Day 3

Sarah stands facing a crowd of the infected looking scared with trembles in her right hand which she squeezes away. She is then seen in a lab with Julia testing a way to find a fast acting test for the virus. Julia and her argue over the enzymes she is using for the test and Julia then spots her hand trembling. Julia asks her if she has any symptoms and Sarah passes it off as sleep deprivation. When Julia leaves she looks upset at her hand and squeezes the trembles away. When Julia returns later on to the lab Sarah seems happy and when asked why tells her that she found a way to test the infection with genes from a crystal jellyfish to create the test. When Julia demands to see her do it again and test it out on herself, Sarah declines and walks away from Julia to go tell Alan. She is then seen with Julia and Alan taking directions for what to do for the testing of the others suspected of carrying the virus. After all the swabs and tests are taken Sarah tells Julia that she is going upstairs to put them away when she almost faints. When Julia asks what happens she says she tripped. Julia confronts her if she is infected which obviously makes her upset she then takes a test and is shown to be negative and then walks away from Julia. Sarah is seen in her quarters pouring water into a glass and drinking it and after looking in the mirror she looks down to see her hand trembling and takes suspicious pills. She then takes off her shirt and a large scar is on her back.

Day 4

Sarah is seen standing over her sink opening a bottle of pills when a loud knock comes from her door, making her drop most of the pills in her sink, she swears but goes towards the door. Sarah begins to ration her limited amount of remaining pills by cutting them in half, and, when her symptoms reoccur, she begins abusing morphine in addition to her prescription.

She opens the door to find a woman named Rae Van Eigem, an oncologist working on the base, who she then invites in. Dr. Van Eigem then tells her she does not want to go to level R, and shows Sarah a sore on her arm, revealing she believes that Sarah's test may have false negatives, although Sarah knowns her test is accurate. Sarah checks on Dr. Van Eigem, who complains of headaches and accuses someone in the room of cheating on her. When Sarah realizes that Rae is hallucinating, she walks away to go tell Alan but Dr. Van Eigem stops her and reveals her knowledge of Sarah's tumor. In exchange for Rae's silence, and possibly out of guilt or just sympathy, Sarah hides Rae in her room and administers morphine to her to control her symptoms, after telling Alan the test doesn't work without revealing Rae's infection. Alan tells her to find the flaw in the test and fix it.

Day 5

Sarah continues to hide Dr. Van Eigem in her room, administering both morphine and moral support, although the doctor's advanced symptoms increase their danger of discovery.
