KATHLEEN TOPOLSKY (1973-1999)                                                  

Born Kathleen Ann Topolsky on September 13, 1973 to Roger
and Kathleen R. Topolsky in Hartford, Connecticut.

One brother, Allister, born 1975.

Father was a pharmacist, mother a homemaker.

At 14, Kathleen distinguished herself by winning the
National Karate Championships in the 17-and-under age group.
She would later stop karate, opting to train in Krav Maga.
Although she would no longer compete, she still gained a
reputation as one of the most competent fighters of her

Kathleen graduated high school magna cum laude, but deferred
early acceptance to Yale because of the failing health of
her brother. She attended University of Hartford, staying
close to her family, and received a BA in psychology in the
Fall of 1993.

Her brother died of Hodgkin's Disease that November.

Kathleen moved to Ann Arbor and received her PhD in
psychology in 1997 from the University of Michigan. She
spent two years working at a private practice before
applying to Quantico. She was admitted immediately and after
fifteen short weeks of intensive training was recruited by
Agent Daniel Pierce into the Special Unit.

She was given her first assignment, "Project W. Roswell
High," by Unit head Agent Stephens in September. Agent
Topolsky assumed cover as a guidance counselor at West
Roswell High in Roswell, New Mexico. Her e-mail correspondences
were recovered from the hard drive of a computer at the Special
Unit offices. The e-mails seem to indicate the nature of her
assignment was to observe a group of high school students,
although the purpose behind this remains unclear.

She seemed to have a particular interest in students Michael
Guerin, Liz Parker, Alex Whitman and Max Evans. These names
are also listed in the main office file log of the Special Unit,
but their significance cannot be determined as the files
are missing.

On November 19, 1999, Special Agent Kathleen Topolsky was
removed from her assignment and seemed to have no connection
to or activity with the Special Unit for five months.

Her name resurfaced in April 2000 in the Evidence Vault Ledger (pg. 704)
at the Special Unit, checking out what she described as an
"orb communicator." The item was never checked back into the vault.

On April 14, 2000, a fire broke out at the Bethesda
Psychiatric Institute in Bethesda, Maryland.

Kathleen Topolsky was listed among the six patients dead
from the fire.
