Mrs. Roberts' son Sean lost his sight at an early age after an accident, and the boy developed psychic abilities soon afterwards.

Sean refused to talk under interrogation, so Cy-Kill plotted to also kidnap his mother as leverage. UNECOM anticipated this but as Benedict was actually a Renegade spy Mrs. Roberts was also easily captured - effectively giving herself up and throwing Crasher with her demand to be taken to her son.

However, what Sean had seen a vision of was actually one of Scooter's holograms, and the Guardians survived to rescue the boy and his mother.
