She was a resident of Washinton, DC and a fanatic fan of American football. She left home to travel unsupervised to Chicago and meet her idol, Ned Jackson. To do so she "borrowed" the purse of her mother. Said mother was a computer expert at the Pentagon. Beside money the purse included a notebook with access codes to the Pentagon computers. Resulting in Sally being followed by security agents willing to retrieve it and subversive agents willing to exploit it. Luke was the only one hired to retrieve the girl herself, making for quite a chase.
