Debbie was planning on leaving after their last job and heading to Japan where technology has been outlawed. When Flak tells them their next mission will be in Tokyo, Debbie realizes he knew all along she was planning on escaping. He tells them their last task before he releases their contract is to find the ruler of Japan, kill him, and bring down the EMP system protecting the nation.

Debbie and Teddy were inseparable as children.

Debbie recalls being a young girl and watching her mother "jack-in" to TV and become engrossed in technology. Her mother didn't want anything to do with her. Debbie was just a distraction from her TV. Her father was a police officer, and one of the last generation of LAPD officers before they were shut down for private enforcers. Her father encouraged her to avoid technology and play outside to experience real life. Debbie knew the last thing she wanted was to end up like her father - attempting to pull someone from a technological addiction.

When her father passed away, she became bored and eventually found a young boy named Teddy Dennis who was addicted to technology. She pulled him from his Nanopacs and together the two grew up without technology. As they grew older they eventually fell in love. One day, they were attacked by a group of ruffians who were filming a reality show of beating people up and broadcasting it on the internet. Teddy wasn't strong enough to protect her and was beaten down while they filmed it. However, Debbie was also taught fighting skills by her father and used them to beat back the four boys. Everyone Teddy knew saw the actions and ridiculed him for being so weak and having to be saved by his girlfriend.
