|First appearance||Faces, Part 1|
Penny, a Company agent, pursues a man in Manhattan that Penny has been informed will emit nerve gas when he gets nervous and sweats. Penny blends into a crowd and follows him into an alleyway, where she manages to bag him with a taser before he can release a fatal dose.
Upon returning to Primatech Research, Penny cleans herself in the shower and her hair changes from black to light brown. Penny tries to "hit on" Thompson, Jr., who does not remember her even though they went on an assignment together to fight a Croatian who had a weather control ability, and ignores Penny until introduced to her by Penny's mother, Connie. Penny leaves with her mom down the hall, and rejects her mother's suggestion that Penny should improve her own appearance to attract guys.
Penny and Connie arrive at Bob's office, and learns from Bob that her request to be assigned a new partner has been denied. They then travel to Levittown to capture a teleporter. Penny and Connie follow Bob's plan to use the target's girlfriend to get close to him. When they spot the girlfriend leaving the target's house, Penny's physical form is altered by her mother such that she appears exactly like the target's beautiful girlfriend except for her clothing. Penny is able to impersonate the girlfriend well enough to convince the target to let her into his house. Then, Penny knocks him out with a powerful kick and prepares an injection.
After the mission is over, Penny tries but is unable to convince her mother to restore her normal appearance until the next morning. She heads to a bar where she runs into Thompson, Jr. Penny accepts a drink from him, but has one too many cause she later wakes up in bed with Thompson, Jr. He is lying face down asleep next to her, and her appearance has reverted to normal.
Having reverted to her normal appearance, Penny gets out of bed and sneaks out of the motel room, leaving Thompson, Jr. asleep on the bed. At Primatech Research, Penny practices shooting in the firing range and notices Thompson, Jr. has come there too. She notes that he remembers her as Penny, not realizing she was the one he had slept with the night before. After Thompson, Jr. has left, Penny almost runs into her mother and her gun, and asks her mom to watch where she points her firearm.
Penny listens as her mom gloats, thinking her ability has helped Thompson, Jr. and Penny become closer. They walk through the halls, and arrive outside a Company work room. Penny watches through the room's window as a colleague helps him to discover that the person he made out with the night before resemble's the teleporter's girlfriend, a known accomplice in the Company's database. When Thompson, Jr. rushes away, Penny has her mother quickly change her back to looking like the girlfriend, hoping to head Thompson, Jr. off before he reaches the girlfriend's home.
Penny, Thompson, Jr. and the girlfriend all arrive at the teleporter's home, and Thomson, Jr. ushers the two women inside at gunpoint. Penny explains what has happened to Thompson, Jr., and pleads with him to send for the Haitian and not her mother. However, Thompson, Jr. ignores Penny and has them both arrive to the home.
After being forced to tell her mother that her ability is valued, Connie turns Penny's appearance back to normal confirming her version of the events. After everyone else has left, Penny asks Thompson, Jr. if he is upset and learns that he likes Penny using her mother's ability for him all to well. Penny thinks to herself that next time she will stay the beautiful person and lose her memories, letting her doppleganger be the one to lose her appearance.
Penny is assigned to help bring down Echo DeMille. Thirteen weeks later, Echo is supposed to rendezvous with his girlfriend Gina. However the Company becomes aware of this and decides to put Penny on the case.
Echo travels to his family's cabin on Lake Arrowhead, where he had arranged with Gina to eventually meet up. As Echo makes his way to the cabin, Penny is there waiting on the pier, in her Gina disguise. Echo rushes towards Penny and the two share a kiss. However, he then realizes it's not Gina that he kissed, but Penny. He uses his ability to render her unconscious, revealing her true appearance.
Penny, Felicia and her mother are sparring in Primatech's training area when they overhear the arguments of Gael Cruz, Thompson Jr. and Bianca Karina regarding who could be aiding Evs Dropper's activities to undermine the Company from the inside. Penny sticks up for Thompson Jr., and makes the argument worse by suggesting that the human agents need to start protecting themselves against the evolved agents who are suspected of aiding Evs, much to her mother's shock.
According to her mother's assignment tracker, Penny was the person to turn her mother in to the Company. At the time, Penny was already a highly-decorated field agent in the Company. Penny believed that her mother would be isolated by the Company as she found her ability to be ethically offensive. However, the Company instead made Connie into Penny's new partner over her objections and their partnership has been a success thus far, making Penny "an unparalleled candidate for infiltration assignments."
- In an interview conducted by e-mail, writer Mark Sable confirmed that it is Penny showering after capturing the Manhattan target, and that the color changing can be assumed to be caused by her mother's ability.
- Chris Sotomayor colored the original depiction of Penny's normal appearance with brown eyebrows and light-brown hair. In her subsequent appearance (shown in the above infobox), John Starr made her normal look have black eyebrows and ash-blond hair. Alitha Martinez drew Penny's original normal appearance with an almost pig-shaped nose; Micah Gunnell drew her subsequent appearance with a smooth (though wider) nose.
