At some point, Avery enlisted into the military and was appointed the commanding officer of a FEDRA unit consisting of Irina, Mali, Seb, Victor, and an unnamed sixth person. Their squad was stationed at the Seattle quarantine zone. At some point, a FEDRA superior ordered Avery's unit to take out an infected nest in Hotel Blacray by destroying the building's support with explosives. However, the detonators were faulty and the squad was trapped in the hotel by a group of stalkers, ultimately resulting in their deaths.
