"Working for the local paper has helped to satiate her thirst for information. Strong-willed, she's not afraid to speak her mind. Quick and more powerful than she looks, Alyssa's PICKING TOOL makes her an indispensable asset to the group. She is suited to both combat and exploration."
— Alyssa's description from her file in Outbreak Revisited.
Her special item is a set of four different shaped lockpicks. This gives her the ability to unlock some locked doors, drawers, and safes that cannot be opened by other characters. In File #2, AIPC Alyssa can unlock certain things that the player cannot. All it takes is calling her name and telling her to come to the player's current location. If she likes the PC, it shouldn't be a problem. However, she may distance herself from the PC if she doesn't like them. (this all depends upon which character was chosen at the start of the level and if they have helped AIPC Alyssa significantly or not during the course of the scenario, such as saving her life.)
