Teresa Lipan is a special operations field agent, former member of the Agency and a partner and close friend of Gabriel Logan. Lipan was one of the few people who assisted Logan in escaping from the clutches of the Agency and set up a small communications base in the Nevada Desert.
Teresa was born in Seattle, USA, in 1974. She was initially a member of the ATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives) assigned in Western Montana to locate a downed FBI satellite. She ran into a pair of suspicious looking men in black pinned down by local survivalists. At first she assisted those men, who claimed to be FBI, fighting the survivalists and preventing Oakton from getting his hands on the satellite. However, according to Gabe Logan, who rescues her from her captors (and is her first meeting with him), the men in black are actually NSA agents ordered to retrieve the satellite data and slaughter anyone who tries to get in the way - whether it be government forces or the survivalists. Teresa eventually ended up helping the survivalists and the Oakton family escape an onslaught, retrieving the satellite data in the process.
