Powers and Abilities

An experienced field agent, Kelly is an extremely dangerous combatant, familiar with a wide range of weaponry, and is capable of using them ruthlessly.


Kelly Peyton worked for The Shed under Gordon Dean, being the only other person to know that it was not a black ops division of the CIA, but actually a branch of the criminal organization Prophet Five. She developed a friendship with colleague Rachel Gibson. When they realised Rachel had compromised the operation, she had no remorse about Dean’s decision to bomb the operation.

They set up another operation, and Kelly soon learned that Rachel had survived and was now working for the CIA, they fight, with Kelly outclassing Rachel, and willing to kill her. Rachel saves Kelly from a bullet, and Kelly has to flee when Rachel’s back-up arrived.

When Dean is captured by APO, Peyton takes over his role as head of The Shed. She works with Irina Derevko in getting information out of Sydney Bristow to recover the Horizon, a Rambaldi artefact, but when she later learns that Sydney, her father and Irina are in a Vancouver bank retrieving the Horizon, she leads a team in, possibly seeing Irina as a traitor. Jack holds them off catching Peyton with a grenade that leaves her buried in rubble. She escapes.

Working with Arvin Sloane, who was then also working for Prophet Five, she recruited Anna Espinosa from a federal prison, leading to Anna being turned into a genetic double of Sydney. She later helps Sloane to recruit Julian Sark, and when Sloane convinces her that she’s as expendable to the organisation as he is, which she was already aware of, she agrees to join him in a coup.

While Sloane and Sark deal with other parts of the plan, Peyton reports to the Prophet Five council, pretending to be delivering the Horizon. Instead, she pulls out her guns and kills the council and their guards.

She’s soon captured by APO, and Rachel uses knowledge from their former friendship to use Peyton’s fear of snakes to make her talk. She’s then taken into custody.


A ruthless and pragmatic opportunist, Peyton often seems sweet and pleasant, but she can instantly switch to coldly vicious, doing whatever she needs to do for her own survival and advancement. While relatively loyal as long as she is well treated, she’s always looking out for signs of possible betrayal, and doing what she can to protect herself from them.


Anna: “Get out of my cell.”
Peyton: “If I’m interrupting your busy schedule of invasive interrogation, I do apologize.”

(In a gunfight with Jack) “This really is no place for you, Grandpa. By the way, where’s Sydney registered ? I’d love to get her a gift for the baby.”
