Character History

Side Story:Mother Part 1

Tessa waits for Samantha in the back seat of their car and makes her presence clear after witnessing Samantha turn a pen into a flower. Tessa requests that they begin their assignment as their target is on the move.

After arriving outside of Wesly Ford's hotel, Tessa reports to Samantha that Ford has the ability of Hypnotic Touch and the two begin their assignment as soon as noticing the absense of gaurds at the entrance. Once Tessa and Samantha enter the hotel, they find dozens of posters with the message "A Man Who Could Move A Nation". Wondering how Ford could control so many people, the women discover that their target has been watching them surrounded by his followers. Tessa succumbs to Ford's ability and kneels before him, pledging her loyalty.

Side Story:Mother Part 2

Tessa, still under the influence of Wesly, sits with Samantha as he approaches the women, thanking them for their love.

She later accomponies Samantha to Wesly's funeral, commenting on the tormenting feeling of loss as a side effect from Wesly's Mind Control. Tessa jokes with Samantha on how she "turned Wesly's insides out" and Samantha suddenly reveals that she is dying. Tessa is shocked at this as she witnesses Samantha poorly transmutate a pen into a wilting flower. Samantha has Tessa promise that she will look out for Tyson and never tell him the truth about her death. Tessa agrees and watches as her partner and friend walks away.

In present time, it is revealed that Tyson has been having a now elderly Tessa to retell the events of Samantha's last mission and the truth behind her death. After finishing the story, Tessa tells Tyson to never contact her again.

Hunt, Catch, Crash

In the Oakwood Retirement home, Tessa speaks with Emile Danko, presumably about her knowledge on evolved humans.


Flashbacks into the past of Amber Matthews reveal that Tessa gave birth to Amber but soon gave her up for adoption as she felt that without abilities, Amber wouldn't fit in. Jordan is disappointed by this as he has also learnt that he was adopted and Tessa was his mother.
