[edit] Uncharted: The Fourth Labyrinth

In October, Garza is one member of a team comprising of sixteen men and women that are sent to China to work as mercenaries for weapons manufacturing company Phoenix Innovations, as the CEO of the company Tyr Henriksen is venturing into a labyrinth beneath the Chinese city of Nanjing that is known as "Diyu" or Hell. With Henriksen is one of his employees Olivia Hzujak, his bodyguard Corelli, Olivia's stepdaughter Jadranka or "Jada", and treasure-hunter Nathan "Nate" Drake.[1]

The mercenaries fly to China and join up with Henriksen's entourage, entering the Ming Xiaoling Mausoleum and beginning their descent into Diyu. At one point during the journey, Nate requires some assistance and Garza holds fellow mercenary Massarsky's gun as he offers Nate a boost.[1]

The entourage continues on through the labyrinth, and it is soon made apparent that Olivia is the true leader of the group, and not Henriksen. After Nate kills Corelli, Olivia orders Garza and the rest of the mercenaries to execute Henriksen, Nate and Jada. However, before the mercenaries can carry out the execution, they are attacked by the Protectors of the Hidden Word, a secret society set up to guard the mysteries of the labyrinth. A skirmish erupts between the mercenaries and the Protectors, and although the mercenaries are able to win the battle, a number of mercenaries also perish, including Perkins, the leader of the squad.[1]

Ultimately, only Garza, Massarsky and Suarez remain of the mercenaries after the skirmish, and it is their duty to escort Olivia to the labyrinth's treasure vault. However, when they arrive there, they are attacked by the "Minotaur" - a man turned into a version of the mythical beast after drinking a concoction including the white hellebore flower. Garza runs out of ammunition as she and her fellow mercenaries shoot the Minotaur, and this proves to be her death as the beast grabs her and breaks her neck.[1]
