Lindsey Elisabeth Farris was an IMF agent trained by Ethan Hunt. During a mission, she was captured by Owen Davian, who implanted an explosive charge in her head. She was rescued by Hunt and his team, but died when the charge was activated and exploded.


Lindsey Farris joined the IMF at an unknown time (presumably early 2000s) and was trained by her mentor and friend Ethan Hunt, who had retired from field work. Hunt taught her the Filipino martial arts of Eskrima in one flashback. Becoming a skilled agent, she was given a mission in 2006 to investigate an arms dealer named Owen Davian. Before being captured, she mailed her mentor a postcard with information, telling him that Theodore Brassel was working with Davian as a mole, but John Musgrave is later revealed to be the mole in Shanghai.

Capture and DeathEdit

During a mission, she was captured by Owen Davian and was implanted with a explosive charge in her head. IMF agent Musgrave informs Hunt of her capture, and picked his team members to rescue her, Declan Gormley, Zhen Lei, and his old partner Luther Stickell.

Hunt rescues Farris and two have to shoot their way through Davian's henchman. Getting to the helicopter, Hunt learns that Farris has a explosive charge in her head that had just being activated, and tries to disarm it. While trying to do so, the explosive charge detonated, killing her instantly. Hunt, shocked and saddened, tearfully holds his protégé. Farris was returned to the IMF and later buried in an unknown location.
