"It can't have been easy, lying all the time to protect yourself.. protect others."
Carlos to Kiera[src]

Kiera Cameron, is a Vancouver City Protective Services Protector from 2077 who was transported to the year 2012 in Vancouver, Canada. She is now on a mission to return to her time and her family and to stop Liber8 from altering the past.

Assigned to work with partner Carlos Fonnegra in the Vancouver Police Department, Kiera learns all about the freedoms she never had growing up in a corporate society.

BiographyEdit

HistoryEdit

In 2067, Kiera is living in Vancouver with her mother, Samantha, and her sister, Hannah. [1] Kiera served in an unspecified branch of the military and left when she found out that she was pregnant with her boyfriend, Greg's, son. When he found out about the pregnancy, Greg proposed, and they got married. She soon gave birth to their son, Sam Cameron.

With her husband's encouragement, Kiera joined the City Protective Services as a Protector after spending a few years focusing on raising Sam. During her service, Kiera learned several things about the rebels and their cause that somewhat shifted her views, at one point even questioning the Congress' decision. [2] Despite this, she still disapproves of the opposition's methods, particularly those of Liber8.

Kiera was assigned to one of the squads that chased down members of the terrorist group Liber8. They caught Matthew Kellog, killed his sister Laura in an airstrike, captured Sonya Valentine on a separate occasion, and finally Liber8's leader, Edouard Kagame, just before the bombing of the Global Corporate Congress building, aimed at killing 20 members of the Board (the heads of the world's largest corporations) that also ended up taking the lives of 30,000 people as collateral damage.

Kiera was assigned as a guard for the public execution of Liber8 when Alec Sadler transferred her to the execution chamber itself. During the execution, she noticed the prisoners assembling their time travel device and attempted to stop them, but was unsuccessful and was swept into the past along with the members of Liber8.

Season 1Edit

Confused about her strange surroundings, Kiera tries to contact the City Protective Services base but ends up communicating with the present time's 17-year-old Alec Sadler instead, through his experimental frequency channel, the early developmental stages of the CPS network in the future.

While looking for Liber8, Kiera meets Vancouver Police Department's Detective Carlos Fonnegra. With his help, she manages to get information she needs to track down Liber8. Realizing that she needs a connection with law enforcement, she claims a fake identity as a Portland PD detective, Linda Williams. When later exposed, however, Alec helps her by creating a cover for her: as Special Agent Cameron who works for a government anti-terrorism group called Section Six.

On several occasions, she and Matthew Kellog have traded favors and flirtation on Kellog's side. Kiera realized that Kellog, whose losses she seems to be always present for, had risked so much, even his grandmother, to help her, and is the only one in this time period that can truly relate to her situation. In a moment of weakness, Kiera sleeps with Kellog.

Throughout her stay, Kiera is intent on finding a way to return to her time and family, even keeping a piece of the time travel device, and once even trusting a man named Jason, who claims to have also come from the future, to send them back to her time.

The longer Kiera was in the time period, however, the more she began to accept that she may not even get back anymore, so she dedicated her time to stopping Liber8 and their plans of changing the future to help her family remain intact instead. Thinking that her transport to the present was an accident, Kiera was devastated to hear from Alec that his future self had planned it all along.

Season 2Edit

Following the bombing, Kiera spent some weeks 'off-the-grid', acting as a vigilante by tracking and countering Liber8 on her own, but maintained contact with Carlos while otherwise operating outside the law. She also avoided contact with Alec, who was having trouble processing the discovery about his future self's role in her arrival in the past. However, her role in the arrest of a gang leader prompted her to return to the force when Carlos points out that her actions threaten his and Dillon's positions at the Vancouver Police Department.

However, when a subsequent attempt planned by Kiera to move Travis out of his prison resulted in the escalation of Liber8's actions into a Liber8 civil war, dividing the organization into two factions (one side led by Travis and the other by Sonya), tension rises in the department as well, evidence suggesting the presence of a Liber8 mole in the department.

With Agent Gardiner increasingly suspicious of Kiera, her attempts to cope with life in the past were hampered by moments such as the need to conceal her knowledge of a futuristic drug emerging in the present, as well as the discovery that her former partner in 2077 had been sent back to 1975 and made a life for herself. When Dillon was transferred, Kiera suffered a temporary breakdown, triggering a psychological protocol in her CMR that nearly erased her memories of her son before she achieved a breakthrough. She finally admitted the truth about herself to Carlos while tracking the Ouroborus Killer, Carlos accepting her claim in time to save her from becoming a new victim of the killer.

Season 3Edit

(Work in Progress)

PersonalityEdit

Kiera is an extremely dedicated and competent law enforcement officer. At the beginning of the series, she is very reliant on her advanced tech in her pursuit of Liber8 but, as the series progresses, aided by the example of Carlos and her other colleagues, she begins using her intuition more to guide her in solving crimes and using her tech less, realizing that she won't be able to rely on it at all if it fails.

Kiera is extremely determined to capture Liber8 and stop their plans, with the belief that they are trying to put a stop to the future she grew up in. However, Kiera's views somehow change as she sees the difference of ways of life in the present and the true evils of the corporate future. Despite this, Kiera still stands by the beliefs that she had worked hard to fight for in the future. Despite her concerns about the implications of her being trapped in the past, Kiera begins to focus on her cases on their individual merits, to the point that she attempted to prevent a historically-recorded bombing to save lives.

Kiera is a very loving mother who, because of being sent back in time and away from her family, yearns only to return to her child and husband. She is also shown to be very dedicated to her husband, even with his indiscretions after their engagement. Despite wanting to stay loyal to him even in her current situation, Kiera ends up sleeping with Kellog in a moment of weakness and grief, as he is the only other person she can be remotely honest with.

Also, Kiera still apparently gets awkward in social situations, so she tends to talk to herself.

AbilitiesEdit

Kiera possesses implants of a nanotechnological and likely pseudo-biological nature. These implants offer an array of abilities including but not limited to:

  • Enhanced senses, including firearm detection (presumably by detecting the chemical and material components of various firearms), face recognition, and night vision. 
  • Heightened strength and speed better than would be indicated by her height and build.
  • Complete audio/visual records of everything around her.  She may access these records at any time as may anyone with access to her VPN.
  • Virtual Private Network; while in the latter half of the 21st century her VPN is actually the CPS VPN, in 2012 her VPN consists only of herself and Alec Sadler. In the future, this system would access case files, and enables free exchange of communication and information with fellow officers and HQ, and records audio/video from herself or other officers.
  • Kiera's CPS uniform has demonstrated advanced capabilities such as color change, ability to interfere with monitoring devices (likely localized EM pulse), impressive resistance to bullets, and providing the wearer with invisibility. She received an upgraded version from the Freelancers.

RelationshipsEdit

Carlos FonnegraEdit

As the first VPD officer that Kiera meets in 2012, she and Carlos have gone on to form an effective partnership as she works against Liber8. Although their relationship is initially 'tainted' by her need to lie to him about her history, Kiera has nevertheless come to trust Carlos, allowing him to continue helping her in an investigation even when she knew that he was a potential suspect. Carlos in return has helped Kiera grow beyond her original reliance on her technology, subtly encouraging her to trust her human instincts instead of relying on CMR readouts. Despite months of building suspicion, when faced with a choice between believing that Kiera was working with a serial killer or believing that her stories of being a time traveller were true, Carlos chose to believe Kiera's story, saying that her working with a killer was impossible while the time-travel claim was merely improbable.

Alec SadlerEdit

Young Alec Sadler is Kiera's secret ally in the present. He assists her by providing her with information and electronic background details to accomodate her lack of any actual history in the present, as well as working on repairing or reprogramming any of her future technology if it is damaged or hacked.

Sam CameronEdit

Sam is Kiera's son, left behind in the future when Kiera was transported to the present. Kiera loves her son very much and is often struck with grief when she thinks of him.

Greg CameronEdit

Greg is Kiera's husband. Although the couple is seemingly very happy and in love, they also have their personal issues, one in particular came up when Kiera finds out that Greg had slept with her friend, Rikki, shortly before their wedding.

Matthew KellogEdit

Matthew Kellog has often offered Kiera his services ever since he left Liber8, but Kiera does not fully trust him, and Matthew's loyalties are still uncertain. He also constantly flirts with Kiera, who also constantly rejects his advances. Eventually though, Kiera gives in and sleeps with him after a particularly difficult day, but she does take advantage of the opportunity to recover the piece of the time machine he had previously stolen from her.

After the momentous bombing of City Plaza, Kiera is seen sailing out to sea with Kellog, although this was apparently temporary, with Kiera having returned to her original distance from Kellog.
