Jazmin Dawson, aka Spy Girl, is an agent with the ISA.
That acronym stands for the International Security Agengcy, an organization "responsible for tracking down individuals and groups that threaten world security". That sound pretty cool, and it is, though when I first read of it early in the initial recorded adventures, we are told that "the precinct where they worked was the London headquarters of the GID - the Global Intelligence Department". That made me wonder if somehow the ISA was part of the GID or vice versa. Never got that one figured out so let's just ignore the GID part.
When I say that Dawaon is an agent with them, well, not really and not officially and not ... The truth is, her mother is an agent, and has been one for quite a few years. Since Dawson is totally aware of her mother's profession and quite envious of it, she aspires to be an operative as well and though she is still quite young, too young to be a real agent, when we first meet her, life is going to give her a chance to fulfill her dreams.
As the blurb for her first recorded adventure puts it, "Jazmin Dawson is a super-cool secret agent with hi-tech kit and a hi-octane life of crime-busting ... in her dreams! In reality, Jazmin Dawson is a fourteen year old teenager, whose biggest battles are with her homework and her addiction to snacks. But suddenly, everything changes". When her operative mother goes missing, young Dawson is called upon find her. Suddenly her aspirations for the job become frighteningly answered.
One fun aspect to Dawson and her desire to be like her mother is that her concept seems to waver between being a kick-butt trenchcoat-wearing figure lurking in the shadows for a clandestine brush-pass and being a clue-reading logical-minded detective ferreting out the solution to a crime. As a result, she kind of wanders into both realms and it is fun to follow her.
