Annie和Ben在達摩學校裡讀書，他們都是Olivia的學生。某天，當他們在學校裡進行一個有關火山的實驗時，兵營被敵人突擊了。Olivia命令Annie去把後門給鎖上，after which Annie guided Ben to safety by bringing him to the perimeter of the classroom. Annie attempted to comfort Ben by telling him that it was "just the Hostiles."
Unlike Roger, Annie remembered Ben's birthday, and presented him with a pair of carved wooden dolls, designed to represent herself and Ben. She gave the girl to Ben and kept the boy, telling Ben that because they each had the other's doll, they would never have to be apart from each other. The doll was a significant gift for Ben, and he kept it with him throughout his adult life. Template:Crossref
