Growing up in the middle of the civil rights movement had a monumental effect on Agnes. As an adult, she moved often, supporting causes and "leaders" who struck her as progressive and doing the "right thing". Of course, the "right thing" is debatable. She spent time in Northern Ireland, Nicaragua and Texas. Always backing the underdog in her eyes. Her Texas venture earned her some time in an institution where she participated in drug trials to prove good behavior and earn her release. Not too long after her release she soon turned to her next cause and headed to Chernarus.
