Álvarez came up with the idea for Black Mirror during Operation Blue Orion, when she was forced to improvise a panic room at the Embassy of Spain in Tel Aviv. She used this experience to design a specialized laminated glass, which when deployed with oxyacetylene can carve out a one-way mirror on any wall.

Lore[edit]

Background[edit]

Working alongside her father in his mechanics store from a young age, Álvarez can find the weaker spot on any machinery and turn it into an edge. She joined the police force Cuerpo Nacional de Policía so that she could be of service to those in need, and thus serve her country.

Proving to have stellar endurance and an extensive knowledge of vehicles, she entered the ballistic field. Among the Grupo Especial de Operaciones (G.E.O.), she developed new bulletproof materials and enhanced bridging vehicles.

Psychological Report[edit]

Abandoned by her mother at birth, she was raised by her father in Madrid. Being an only child, she found her purpose working the family business.

Training[edit]

  • Specialized in armoring process for ballistic protection
  • Design overlap systems on vehicle openings and armor plates layering

Relevant Experience[edit]

  • Cuerpo Nacional de Policía
  • Grupo Especial de Operaciones (G.E.O.)
  • Competed at the SWAT EU CQB

Notes[edit]

Following Operation Blue Orion, the two Operators Eliza Cohen and Álvarez have been persistent rivals. Further investigation is required to assess if such tension could become a risk in future cooperative missions.
