Lille St. Claire was born, in the Matrix, in Marseilles, France. She lived with her family until the age of 2, when her parents and brother were killed in a car accident (a tragedy planned and executed by the Agents, who felt that Lille's father was getting too close to the truth). Lille was supposed to be in the car with them, but she was deemed unfit to travel due to her weak heart and left with her nanny.
After the accident, she was sent to Paris to live with her maternal grandmother, a wealthy French aristocrat whose only child had been Lille's mother. Her grandmother sensed Lille's fascination with planes and enrolled her in Paris's elite Flight Academy at the age of 5. She began her extensive training in flight simulation and actual field work, learning to pilot not only airplanes but fighter planes and helicopters as well. She also trained extensively in the use of long knives and artillery.
Eleven years of training later, Lille was found and unplugged by the same people who recruited her to pilot the Hammurrabi. She and Kaze worked surveillance for two years before Pandora, and then Shiva, joined the crew. The four worked together on reconnassaice missions before Neo's victory over Smith. The crew has been conducting scout missions to find more humans to be unplugged for a slightly over a year now. Although she relishes the long-awaited peace, a part of Skade still longs for the dangerous maneuvering and impossible flight missions the Hammurrabi used to go through when the war between the machines and humans was still raging.
