PERSONNEL BRIEF, Directorate of Operations: Mockingbird
Designation: Freelance Agent
Criminal Record: None
Abilities: Morse graduated at the top of her class at the Academy and is an expert at hand-to-hand combat and melee weapons, as well as infiltration, interrogation, and related espionage techniques. Prior to joining to S.H.I.E.L.D. she received a PhD in Biology from Empire State University.
Unique Weapon: A pair of batons that can be combined into single bo-staff in combat.
Other Alias(es): Agent 19
Known History: Agent Morse was first recruited by S.H.I.E.L.D. for her background in reptile physiognomy; she was sent to the so-called "Savage Land" on several fact-finding missions where she made contact with its so-called "lord," Ka-Zar, who has since become the agency's primary asset in that area.
While in the Savage Land, Morse honed her survival and combat skills. She adopted the costumed identity of "Mockingbird" when she conducted an unauthorized investigation into corruption within S.H.I.E.L.D.; once the malefactors were identified and brought to justice, Director Fury invited her to continue her role as Mockingbird with full agency support.
Observations: "During the course of several operations, Morse has developed a close relationship with fellow freelance agent Hawkeye. Though this relationship violates several non-fraternization clauses in their respective S.H.I.E.L.D. contracts, the Directorate chooses to wait and see if their intimacy can be exploited in later operations before intervening." — Maria Hill
