- "What was that?"
"A breath of fresh air."
- ―Chen and Lucy Bauer
Doctor Lucy Bauer was a member of Momentum Labs, a privately funded think-tank that managed to find the ancient grimoire known as the Darkhold. They began experimenting with the knowledge they found within it, defying the laws of physics. However, a catastrophic disaster caused by their attempts to use the book's mystical properties to power their advanced technologies transformed Bauer and her team into ghostly apparitions. Afterward, they were sealed in cube-like containment devices, and Bauer herself was freed several years later by members of the Aryan Brotherhood. After releasing the rest of her colleagues, Bauer set out on a personal mission to reclaim the Darkhold to restore their lives as well as get revenge on the man responsible for the experiment that caused their predicament.
Finding the Darkhold
Lucy Bauer was a scientist employed under Momentum Labs, a privately funded scientific organization. During her time as a member there, Bauer came upon the Darkhold, an incredibly ancient text that held infinite knowledge pertaining the mystic arts. As Bauer studied the book, she became obsessed with the knowledge and capabilities it brought.
Some time later, Momentum Labs conceived the idea of constructing a Quantum Particle Generator, a machine that was designed to generate matter from practically nothing. While the concept was logically impossible, Bauer believed that the unique possibilities presented by the Darkhold were the key to achieving this. The machine was successfully completed, but a freak explosion caused by the Darkhold's magics obliterated the lab. Bauer and three of her colleagues, Hugo, Frederick, and Vincent, were caught in the blast, and the magical fallout transformed them into grotesque, spiritual entities. They were subsequently placed within cubicle containment devices and placed in storage for several years.

Infecting the Chinatown Crew
Bauer's storage cube was eventually obtained by the Aryan Brotherhood, who believed that it contained some kind of weapon. Bauer was unboxed from the crate and infected two members of the Watchdogs, causing them to kill each other. She returned to the box and was handed over to Chen, the leader of the Chinatown Crew. When the crate was once again opened, Bauer infected all those around it, whispering in Chen's ear and causing him to go mad, as he saw horrific images and gunned down his own allies in a fit of both terrible rage and crippling terror.
As Chen began killing his own men, he was subdued by the arrival of May's Team, a special S.H.I.E.L.D. unit who knocked out all the surviving Chinatown crew by shooting them with I.C.E.R.s before taking them into custody. Seeing the strength of their leader, Bauer took the chance to infect Melinda May's mind, walking past her and causing a chill to run down her spine. Later onboard Zephyr One, Bauer's infection took hold as May saw visions of Phil Coulson's eyes and face becoming black and demonic.
Hunt of Darkhold
Freeing More Like Her
Following her release, Bauer traveled to her old home, where she scared a little boy and attacked the father who was currently residing there. The latter began to see his son's face become distorted and demonic. Realizing that years had passed while she was held captive, Bauer journeyed to Momentum Labs. While there, she discovered five boxes similar to hers that held her former colleagues. First, she freed a man whom she recognized as Hugo. Frightened at their current state, Hugo said 'he must pay' thinking they had been in the cells for hours, Bauer informed him that it had been years.
After releasing the others, the group began to argue among each other, saying that Bauer should not have used the Darkhold. Bauer said that the book could help and fix them, and that after doing that, they would kill 'him' and anyone who got in their way. The group (excluding Frederick) left Momentum Labs to begin their search for the Darkhold.
Eventually, Lucy finds Joseph in his hospital bed. She sticks her fingers into his head to wake him from his coma, demanding to know where the book is.

An explosion from a machine produced with the aid of the Darkhold transformed Lucy Bauer into a ghost-like being, granting her supernatural powers.
- Infection: With a single touch or whisper, Bauer is capable of infecting a person's mind. The infection affects the part of the brain that controls the sleep/wake cycle, resulting in nightmarish hallucinations that gradually drive the victim to paranoia and homicidal rage. The hallucinations are usually of people around the victim having black eyes and their faces being becoming darkened and mottled. Eventually, the resulting constant state of fight or flight causes cardiac arrest, killing the victim.
- Intangibility: Bauer is able to phase through walls unimpeded, though she is still tangible enough to physically interact with the outside world.
- Invisibility: Bauer can render herself invisible and occasionally uses this ability to surprise and scare her targets before infecting them.
- Superhuman Speed: Bauer displayed superhuman speed when she managed to propagate across a room instantly with barely any effort.
