Pre Retreat From BostonEdit
Lourdes was pre-med at Wellesley College when the attack began, abruptly ending her education. She soon found her way into the 2nd Massachusetts Militia Regiment and began to use what medical training she had to help the wounded and sick. Unlike others, she keeps her faith in God because she is hopeful.
The Retreat From BostonEdit
The night before the retreat from Boston, Lourdes was helping Anne Glass, another civilian as well as the doctor, hand out food to the returning fighters. She worries about one of the Scouts from the 2nd, Hal Mason, and goes to find him. She finds him talking to Karen Nadler, another Scout from the 2nd, but approaches him nevertheless, asking him if he wants some food and that she was worried about him. He accepts the food, and tells her that there is no reason to worry. In return, she says that she's glad that he is okay, and walks away smiling.("Live and Learn")
The following morning is filled with energy as the 2nd Mass begins to move out, shepherding the civilians away from Boston. Lourdes is assisting her mentor, Anne Glass, in preparing the last of the wounded and crippled to be moved, when Tom Mason finds them. Lourdes informs him that they sent out the last of the stretcher cases and are finishing up now, and then walks off to finish helping. She is later seen helping Anne search for food in a grocery store. While Tom and Hal were away raid a food distribution center in Watertown, she helped Anne watch over Matt. When Tom's group returned the next day she started running towards Hal, but slowed down when she noticed him tending to Karen. Later she helped Matt celebrate his birthday by giving him a candle to blow out, she then watches with the others as Matt enjoys his new Ripstick ("Live and Learn")
While in Acton, MA she was helping some of the other civilians. She later asks Hal if he needs help carrying a few gallons of water, Hal refuses, but Karen says Lourdes can carry hers. Hal sees through this and says Karen is only joking. Lourdes says she noticed how Hal looked tired last night, Hal questions why she was out at the outpost sentries, she responds that she was praying, she says it didn't bother her that the church was Episcopalian instead of Catholic, saying they were close enough. Karen teases her wondering whether the Skitters have a God. Lourdes responds that despite many losing their faith, hers is stronger. Karen teases her further telling her next time to ask for a stealth B-2 Bomber loaded with nukes. Lourdes says she doesn't think that's how it works, saying she asks God to show her what she can do.
Leaving for CharlestonEdit
In the months since Tom left, she has developed a relationship with Jamil Dexter. In "Worlds Apart" Lourdes is seen attending to an injured Tom on his return to the 2nd Mass after an accidental injury from Ben, After Tom's recovery she's seen welcoming him back. In "Shall We Gather at the River" Lourdes is seen around Jamil and Anne for most of this episode. She is present both when removing the eye worm from Tom and restraining him on the medical convoy (as a precaution suggested by Tom). Later when the eye worm escapes it's glass jar, it crawls over Lourdes before flying off to meet it's master, it is unknown if this incident is connected to later events concering Lourdes .
During "Compass " Lourdes is seen attending to the heavily wounded Jimmy after the later's skitter hunt with Ben . Though Anne and Lourdes stabalise Jimmy temporarily, Jimmy later succums to cardiac arrest with Lourdes' and Annes attempts of ressusitation failing. Lourdes is later seen attending Jimmy's funeral with Jamil and the 2nd Mass, throwing dirt onto the body as a sign of respect. During "Young Bloods" Lourdes accidentally walks in on Tom & Anne's initamte moment in the medical convoy. Later in the espisode she is seens talking to Diego (who recently visited the 2nd Mass for supplies) after hearing him speak spanish. After a general chat (which is seen by Jamil) Lourdes asks Diego of any news about Parras in Mexico where she has family, to which Diego saddly responds saying that the entire North of Mexico was wiped out. Shaken by the news Lourdes hurries away shrugging off Jamil's conerns. Later near the end of the episode She admits to Jamil that she had an Aunty and Uncle in Parras who she hoped survived and had been asking many new people if they had heard news of their small hometown. Jamil then comforts Lourdes by talking about living for the future and furute family (likely hinting at himself), seemingly easing her emotions and allowing the two to share a peacefull moment.
During the alien attack in episode 17 "Molon Labe". Lourdes, Matt and Anne were in the basement collecting some supplies for the trip to Charleston. The roof is caved however after Tom destroyed a Mech on the floor above. After coming to they find Jamil who was ordered to find them had been mortally wounded. Jamil confesses his love to Lourdes and she admits her love for Jamil but when Matt went to open the door that Jamil was bracing shut he screams not to. Anne returns with a stretcher, suddenly small alien creatures come crawling out of Jamil's mouth. Matt, Anne and Lourdes retreat to the blood lab, where Lourdes experiences an emotional breakdown and has all but given up on living. Matt volunteers to go through a duct to get help where he will be found eventually by Tom and Pope. Anne and Lourdes are eventually saved by Tom and Pope just as Anne burns through the crawlies with a homemade flamethrower.
After Jamil's death Lourdes is extremely shaken snapping at Anne on the journey to Charleston, she appears to have lost her religious faith. After arriving in Charleston Lourdes seems to recover from Jamil's death and apologizes to Anne for yelling at her. When Red Eye arrives with Ben she stands with the rest of the 2nd Mass to keep the other soldiers from firing on the Skitters.
Lourdes is a standard character until The Pickett Line where it is revealed that she is the mole that has been terrorizing Charleston. Unfortunately she is able to kill recovering President Hathaway, and is yet undiscovered. At the season finale she is cured of the numerous eye worms affecting her.
