Mina Lee appears in the first book of the Darkness Rising Trilogy, The Gathering. She is first seen being cornered in a tree by a cougar. Considering she didn't teleport out of the tree, it is possible she was a Evanidus. Maya Delaney notices several times that she disappears out of plain sight but does not dwell on the matter. Mina Lee's wrangled body is soon found in a cougar cache but it was suspected that she was murdered.
