Peri Reed is an agent with Opti.
What that word breaks out to, if it is an acronym, in unknown. Opti is all I ever see it referred to as and while it is mentioned quite a few times in these adventures, learning much about it is a challenge which I failed. I do know that it is a "clandestine special ops program" of the United States government but beyond that, not a lot except that they spend a great deal of time training the daylights out of their agents.
Which is why Reed is such a remarkable woman; fast, sleek, strong though deceptively so, smart, and extremely gutsy and tenacious. And she is a Drafter.
Therein lies the matter that centers this series - drafting. That is a term for - and if I get this wrong, I would not be surprised - being able to go back in time a short period. As I have seen it written in a blurb for one of the adventures, she is "possessed of a rare, invaluable skill for altering time" which is both cool and scary at the same time. Even scarier, though, is the fact that she is "yet destined to forget both the history she changed and the history she rewrote."
One thing more about Opti as it relates to Reed is the fact that "Opti's students went on to the FBI, CIA, and mall security. It was only the top one percent who continued in the program to become Opti agents, and then one percent of them became the gods and goddesses of time." Reed is part of that one percent.
Reed is described as: "her hair was short and black, and her chin angular. She was athletic without being blocky, with a narrow waist, ample hips, and a small chest."
She is also shown to be not someone you messed with and Opti messes with her. Bad move.
