Regina 'Gina' Livingston is an agent with the CIA.
Analyst, really. At least that what she is designated in the first recorded adventure. Analysts usually stay behind their computer monitors, banging on keyboards; they do not go out into the field where very bad people occasionally try to bang on them. Livingston certainly had no reason to believe otherwise, up until it became that.
We actually first meet her in a short "adventure" while she was nearly the end of her college years. Born and raised just north of Pensacola, Florida and attending the University of Alabama when it takes place, she is on a vacation at the beach when the death from an overdose of pain meds by a friend got her involved in the activities in Iraq that got her friend injured as well as the opiod explosion back home that helped get him hooked. That would lead her to a change in her career path; Intelligence gathering to help keep the troops safe so they might not get hurt and thus not need the drugs.
Step ahead a half decade and we have Livingston working for the CIA as an analyst and proving every day just how good she is at taking data from many sources and coming up with the right answer. This will get her noticed and will lead to a spot in a newly formed task force.
She is told that it was "a task force spearheaded by Interpol. It spans multiple continents and illicit activities ranging from drugs and arms to potentially multiple crimes against humanity. Because of the nature of the investigation, intel will be provided by us and a variety of other agencies. Regina is tasked with analyzing all collected data and providing the different law enforcement teams with actionable reports. Her initial assignment is three months, but that may be extended if needed."
Once with the group, Livingston will continue to be in the analytical section but life will keep pushing her to live action. She will not put up many objections.
