Firebase Z begins with the abduction of Samantha by the Omega group in Vietnam and thrown into the Dark Aether dimension. After her escape from the Dark Aether, with some great help from the Requiem agents. During her conversation with Weaver, players noticed that her eyes had a purple glow similar to that of Dark Aether elements. This could be a signal that she might have been in contact with the Dark Aether powers and hence become corrupted.

Her character seems off-putting because of the amnesia caused in the Dark Aether. She also showed her dark side after brutally assaulting two Omega agents, even after the repeated shouts to stop.
