Dr. Maren Scofield devotes herself to her patients in the small village in Costa Rica, where she runs the local clinic. The only occasional excitement she sees, is when one of the KGI operations teams comes in unexpectedly, with injuries that need to be tended to. The KGI was responsible for rescuing her and a group of others from a hostage situation a few years prior and they have stayed in touch over the years.
During a rescue operation, Steele and a few of his KGI team have incurred some injuries and stop in to see Maren for medical care on their way back to the U.S.. Of course Steele, dubbed the iceman by those under his command because of his apparent lack of emotion, waives off any medical care for himself. But Maren, after having treated the others, insists. Because even though she feels self-conscious in his presence, she doesn't seem to be easily impressed by his scary demeanour.
