Her name was Sydney Bristow. Many years ago, she was recruited by a secret branch of the CIA called SD-6. She was sworn to secrecy, but she couldn’t keep it from her fiancé. And when the head of SD-6 found out, he had him killed. That’s when she learned the truth: SD-6 is not part of the CIA. She’d been working for the very people she thought she was fighting against.
So she went to the only place that could help her take them down. Now, she’s a double agent for the CIA, where her handler was a man named Michael Vaughn. Only one other person knew the truth about what she did, another double agent inside SD-6. Someone she hardly knew: her father.
Sigh. Anyone else’s Di Regno heart beating a little quicker at the memory of that Alias opening narration?
