(DeCandido's novelizations of the Anderson films)
Osborne and the rest of her unit were sent down to The Hive after communication was lost with James Shade's own commando team. She found it hard to gain access to the Red Queen, soon realising that Shade's team had gone against orders and wiped the AI. When the blast door opened, she was the one who first discovered the Zomboid horde with her flashlight. They soon came out and engulfed the team. Osborne was one of the last to stay unmolested, but was later confirmed deceased by Major Timothy Cain when he evacuated himself. The deaths of her unit proved to be an injury to morale, given their elite reputation.
