History: Kaitlin Hunter was one of the SIS' top operatives before and during WWII. After several years of service conducting numerous undercover counterintelligence missions for the SIS, she was assigned to 'nursemaid' neophyte American agent Jack Shepherd, whom she aided in discovering a shadowy Nazi "wonderweapons" program secreted away at an underground base in the Antarctic. Having discovered the Nazi uranium mine in the Belgian Congo on her own, Hunter was annoyed to have to partner up with a seemingly arrogant and inexperienced American, but she found later during their partnership that Jack was able to sometimes accomplish the impossible, and his charm made it difficult to dislike him entirely. Most of Kaitlin's missions are "top secret" to this day, as she is considered to have fought "the war behind the war". It is not known if she survived to the present day.
