You exposed me! You exposed the program. The people who gave me this technology are very serious, and they do not want to be revealed.
~ Debbie to Mike Peterson.

Debbie is a supporting antagonist in Season 1 of the TV series Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. She was a doctor who worked for HYDRA in the Centipede Project.

She was portrayed by Shannon Lucio.


At an unknown time, Debbie joined the organiastion known as Centipede. As a member of centipede, she was the person who injected test subjects with the Centipede serum, giving them super strength. One day one of the subjects exploded, due to the unstable nature of the serum. Another patient, Mike Peterson, who had also been injected with the serum, rescued her from the burning building,  

Debbie was taken to hospital to be treated for her injuries, when she was interviewed by the media, she pretended to not know who had rescued her, whilst inside hospital, Mike Peterson came to visit, she acted innocent whilst the nurse was in the room, but when the nurse left, she confronted Peterson.

When Peterson also showed signs of de-stabilization and threatened the secrecy of the Centipede program, she sent an assassin to kill Peterson to ensure his silence for good. The assassin was unsuccessful and taken into custody by S.H.I.E.L.D, Peterson's life was saved by S.H.I.E.L.D. and he returned to his family.

Debbie later worked at the Centipede base in Hong Kong and she worked with a woman called Raina in attempting to stabilize the explosive element of the Centipede process. The process involved kidnapping a pyrokinetic named Chan Ho Yin . Raina managed to convince him that Centipede will enhance and upgrade his powers, taking away the limitations put on him by S.H.I.E.L.D. However, when they knew enough about his powers and how his skin was protected from burns, they knocked him out with gas and took the protective layer from his skin to use on their soldiers.

Chan Ho Yin (now known as Scorch) was now unable to make fire without causing serious burns to his limbs. S.H.I.E.L.D. then attacked the lab and Debbie and Raina attempted to get away. When Chan Ho Yin escaped from Debbie's lab, Raina left her in an empty hallway with him. He confronted her and despite her attempts to relax and confuse him by telling him that they could make him stronger than ever before, he refused to listen and set fire to the floor beneath her, incinerated her and reducing her to ashes in seconds.


  • Debbie is the first character in an MCU Television show to appear in non-consecutive episodes.
  • In a deleted scene in the episode, Pilot, Debbie was killed by the Clairvoyant in the same way Edison Po would be later.
