Known To Most

  • Lynette was a Ferry Councilperson known to be a woman-of-the-people. Ferrymen and their charges knew they could come to her for help or at least for an ear for their concerns. In the public eye, a picture of her gained a lot of traction after Cambridge. A bloody and dirty Lynette carrying a wounded and frightened child in her arms as she ran away from the ambush outside the Arcology. It comes up often in articles or discussions about the lot of the Evolved in America.
  • During the Second Civil War, she led a small group of flashy-powered Evolved for the purposed of distraction, rapid dominance, and highly risky operations. People in her squad were well aware of the likelihood of death. And then they all died, save one. But often worked in tandem with other teams working a stealthier approach. Drawing fire, etc. They were called The Olympians (only sometimes in a teasing manner) because of Lynette's nickname of Lady Zeus. On the battlefield, she ended up using Zeus as a callsign. Other members had their own thematically appropriate callsigns as well.
  • She runs a Rehab/Counseling center here in the Safe Zone, her father (Jeremy Rowan) runs the original center in Mexico. It is possible to have been at/be at either at some point. Mexico opened during the last days of the Civil War, NYC opened in Jan 2018.
  • Lynette has started to appear on discussion panels since moving into the Safe Zone. To weigh in on various SLC-Expressive related issues.

Known To Some

  • During the war, Command often referred to her and Nicole as Sturm and Drang, as they worked well together and often together. There was a time when one would not go into battle without the other and as such, were often thought of as one unit, rather than two people. Rumors were around about them, because they were so often together; fighting together, drinking together, and touching all the time. It was a thing.
  • Both rehab facilities double as a safe haven for evos in need and former Ferrymen. It is possible for such people to find long-term housing in Lynette's building. Or in Mexico.
  • While she doesn't hide it, Lynette doesn't always volunteer that she is a recovering addict herself. People who paid attention to interviews could put it together if they were so inclined.

Known To Few

  • There was a time, back in the old old days (pre-2007), when Lynette had her ties to a criminal organization in Los Angeles. She learned to move people quietly from this organization, evolved especially. It is possible to know her from this time, either as a fellow criminal or as someone she moved in or out of the US.


"I can give you my loneliness, my darkness, the hunger of my heart; I am trying to bribe you with uncertainty, with danger, with defeat."

Lynette might wax poetic about how fate and chance brought this man to her, but only because she's still adjusting to being happy. And in love. While their lives have gotten complicated around them, Mateo is her anchor in any storm and she tries to be his. She knows that as long as they have each other, they'll come out okay on the other side. It is a new feeling, having a sense of certainty and security in her life, but it's the kind of new she's glad to welcome in. Also, she waxes poetic now, apparently.
“I was, in my life, proud to be a daughter. But proudest to be your mother.”

Silvia came into Lynette's life late, she is now a cherished part of it. The girl faces her dark memories with a smile and an infectious energy. Lynette admires that, but also wanted the girl to have support and love for when those dark moments come knocking. And Lynette does love her, a strange experience for a woman that never really wanted children, but she doesn't mind strange.
“The heart of a father is the masterpiece of nature.”

Lynette and her dad were a very small, but dedicated family from the time she was very young. After her mother walked out, the pair of them made their way through the world together. Lynette learned about sacrifice and love from him. Now they're business partners as well, co-running Benchmark, one at each location. She has always felt lucky to have him and he to have her.
"I've learned that love knows nothing of time."

Manuel is the child of another Lynette and another Mateo, but through kidnapping and inter-dimensional travel as ended up here. Lynette and Mateo brought him home with them once they learned he was in their timeline and were able to locate him. They're all getting to know one another, but Lynette loves him. It was easy, as it is with every Ruiz. She's more than willing to safe guard him until his mother and father come for him. If they can.

Pre-Institute Post-Institute 5YG Replica Action Butterflies Woven Worlds


  • Business stuff - Lynette has a head for paperwork and a true eye for detail. She knows how to run a business, from top down. She's putting it to work now on a rehab center.
  • Language stuff - Lynette learned Spanish in classrooms in college, but lost her hold on it over the years. After moving to Mexico, she's gotten a full immersion crash course and her handle on it has come back to her.
  • Athletic stuff - She keeps herself in shape. Running, mostly. It's what she does now that she's given up her proper vices. Some boxing on the side.
  • Evolved training stuff - Old habits die hard and her rehab center became a place for evolved people to lay low. She had a few years of teaching people how to control their abilities and how to find and push their limits.
  • Fighting stuff and gun stuff - Her time with the Ferry and in the civil war taught her a lot about fighting. She knows how to fight now, how to handle pistols, shotguns and rifles and knives. She likes to keep a knife close.
  • Contact stuff - Lynette knows how to network. She has a guy for everything. Or a guy who knows a guy.
  • Smuggling stuff - Even before her years with the Ferry, Lynette was a smuggler. She's smuggled goods, people, money, the lot.
  • PTSD and emotional cover stuff - Lynette has never been good at dealing with her issues. She used to cope with alcohol, cigarettes or drugs. Then she coped with violence or shutting down. Now she copes by way of solitude. In the wake of the war (among other things), she has never really confronted this tendency and sometimes can get set off by things that put her back in that place, in that mindset.
