Major Emma Vining

Cryptonym: JUSTIFY


Emma Vining was born in Chicago, Illinois. She is 52 years old and is divorced. At a young age, she determined she wanted to be a soldier, and in 1970, enlisted in the Army. She rose quickly through the ranks and showed a talent for leadership and administrative ability during the end of the Vietnam war. She first became connected with the CIA in the aftermath of the disastrous PHOENIX counterintelligence project. To Vining's chagrin she developed a reputation as a troubleshooter for projects considered a long shot or operations that have failed or caused serious difficulties. As a member of Army Intelligence, she had a command role during the invasions of Grenada and Panama. While involved in the latter mission, she worked closely with Agency officials, who offered her a transfer to the Directorate of Operations. She wished to expand the covert role of America's national defense and has been an excellent liason, operations and field director for the Agency since then, earning extremely high marks in Operational audits. Although she did not finish college, she has completed extensive training courses in a wide variety of fields.

She is not politically active but contributes regularly to the Republican National Committee and the Human League, a relatively mild PAC which lobbies for more stringent regulation of mutant powers at the state and federal level. Major Vining was selected as commander and Agency liason for TENEBROUS over her strenuous objection to the posting. However, after her posting, she has shown tremendous skill and talent in organizing the substantial assets of the operation, making it available weeks ahead of schedule and well under budget for the startup period.
