The mission "Distant Gunshots", introduces Maya as the source of the gunshots heard by Marcus Campbell and Ed Jones while they are out looking for survivors in cabins. She is found down by the river being attacked by zombies. Once the zombies are cleared, the player is able to switch between Maya and Marcus. She explains afterwards that she was on a hunting trip at Mt.Tanner with two others from her unit (named Colton and Strand). It is implied that Colton and Strand did not survive.
In the mission "Army Sighting", if Maya is sent to speak with the army it is revealed that she knows Sergeant Erik Tan. Maya and the Sergeant had served in Afghanistan together for two years.
