BiographyEdit

Early LifeEdit

Early on in her life, in Colorado Springs, Myka's parents opened a bookstore called, "Bering and Sons," even though she has no brothers. The 'and Sons' was only added to make the establishment sound classier. Unlike her sister, Tracy,[1] Myka was a tomboy and thus, instead of growing up playing with Barbies, she was a member of Girl Scouts of the USA.[2] As a teenager one of her hobbies was fencing.[1] She attended Lincoln High School in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and graduated in 2000, which makes her age approximately 30.[3] She is also fluent in at least four languages other than English: French,[2] Russian[1] Portuguese, Chinese and Latin.[4] She also shows expertise in martial arts. She has a tattoo of the infinity symbol on her inner right ankle, visible in Duped .

Romantic RelationshipsEdit

Sam MartinoEdit

As a Secret Service agent, Myka was partnered with Sam Martino. He called her "Bunny," and she was having a romantic affair with him while he was still married, however he was separated from his wife at the time. Myka felt for a long time that she let Sam die because she was too slow. She was stricken with guilt and grief over Sam's death until she acknowledged to herself that she had not been responsible, and that Sam had been at fault for not following their plan to corner a criminal. Later, she finds out that she nor Sam were responsible as an artifact had been used to stop time, making Myka late.

Helena G. WellsEdit

In season 2 episode 7, just as Helena and Myka are to be run over by a car, Helena pulls out a grappling hook of her own design and wisks Myka to safety.

Season 2 finale

Season 2 concludes with Myka learning of Helena’s betrayal, she states “she played us; she played me,” visibly upset over Helena’s actions. She later talks Helena out of destroying the world, telling her that she (H.G.) wanted to be found and talked down. She forces Helena to place a gun to her head and asks her to end her life there and then, if her plans are truly to end the world. “Kill me…" Myka says, "I want you to look me in the eyes and take my life.” Helena, however, cannot do it and surrenders. 

In season 3, Sykes utilizes Helena’s affection for Myka to carry out his plans as he put her life in Helena’s hands to open a portal to the Warehouse: “I am not going to die…because you are going to save my life.” The season concludes with Helena sacrificing her own life to save Myka, Pete, and Artie’s. 

Pete LattimerEdit

Throughout the series, Pete and Myka are partners at the Warehouse. They form a strong friendship which, for many years, was platonic. 

In Secret Services, Pete and Myka's former colleagues suggest that the chemistry between Pete and Myka is obvious, though both deny it. Later, in Savage Seduction, Pete's ex-girlfriend Kelly Hernandez tells Pete that their relationship never would have worked because Pete is in love with Myka. Pete contemplates this, and in Cangku Shisi, he tells Steve that he is in love with Myka in order to find out whether or not this is the truth. Steve confirms that Pete is not lying.

In Endless, Myka believes her defining moment is only about her being able to use her knowledge, deductive skills, and fighting moves, but Steve says the moment suggests she has a "love thing" for Pete. At first, she denies this, but then she acknowledges the look on her face, admits that she is in love with Pete, but also claims that she hates herself for it. 

Myka then goes to Pete, intending to tell him that she is in love with him, but when he is too busy fretting over losing the Warehouse to listen to her, she just kisses him. At first Pete doesn't believe this (he believes she was really Steve using Harriet Tubman's Thimble, that she has a fever, and that she may have been affected by an artifact before thinking it might be "for realsies"), but then he accepts it and they agree to start dating.

Secret Service CareerEdit

Myka served as a Shift Lead (GS-14) in the Presidential Protective Division of the USSS. On August 8, 2009, an order was sent to Assistant Director Daniel Dickinson, Myka's boss, ordering her immediate transfer to an undisclosed location from her division in presidential security. The transfer was classified as Top Secret-SCI, and the authorization came from a single name, "Frederic."

PersonalityEdit

Myka likes puzzles[4] and skating because it helps her think.[2] She does not eat sugar except under stress, which likely stems from her strong desire to do things by the book and retain a considerable amount of control over every aspect of her life. Her compulsivity and need for control likely stem from Sam's influence and subsequent death, and what she felt was her part in it. She used to be emotional, impulsive and quick to action,

but has changed since she worked within that particular Secret Service office. Myka has also begun to relax after working at the Warehouse indicating she may have found a balance between who she is and who she was. She also has a fear of heights (as mentioned in "The 40th Floor") and a fear of creatures that have tentacles such as jellyfish and octopi.[5] Myka also seems to have a soft spot for animals since she took in the ferret Pete and, acording to Pete in The Greatest Gift, "can't watch a movie where an animal dies." In the first two seasons, she also has a strange obsession with "Twizzlers".
