Agent Carol Anne Strander worked with her partner Agent Santiago for five years. They were assigned to arrest the fugitive Frank Verrano. Little did Strander know that Santiago was actually a Neutralizer who was targeting Verrano for other reasons. When the Verrano was cornered, Santiago revealed his intent and tried to dispose of both Strander and Verrano. Strander was able to escape with Verrano's help. With the revelation that Santiago was a Neutralizer, the FBI was compromised and Strander could not guarantee Verrano's safety so she decided to let him go. She later had to answer to King Faraday.
