An expert thief, cat-burglar, pickpocket and safe-cracker. The product of an abusive childhood spent in several foster homes, Parker is socially awkward and relates poorly to most people but has come to regard the other members of the team as her family. Sophie and Elliot have attempted to improve gaps in her social skills on numerous occasions with limited success. Parker also has affection for Alec Hardison, but finds it hard to convey what she feels when confronted by others. While emotionally impulsive, she can demonstrate great physical self-control in her work using acrobatics, strength and concentration to her advantage. Her obsessive focus on theft is to the point that her safehouse is filled with gear and rappelling equipment to help her in various jobs, and has put through a rehab to address it. Parker was trained at a young age by expert thief Archie Leach, who found her proficient with the physical demands of burglary as well as safe-cracking and lock-picking, skills which she uses constantly. She is able to handle problems on her own while the other team members are away and seems to be guidance, developing her ability as a planner.
