Chris Thorton was Nigel Thorton's wife until she was killed in Afghanistan in 2013.

On episode Condone Untidiest Thefts, she's mentioned for the first time by Shepherd after Roman lets him know that Jane retrieved a memory of a doctor who helped her after an explosion.  


Chris and her husband, Nigel Thorton, lived in Afghanistan and helped with humanitarian causes.

Chris found a dying Remi on the woods after she escaped from a drone attack that killed her whole squad while they were on a mission. Regardless of her husband's reluctance on having a Navy SEAL soldier on their home, Chris decided to help Remi to get better. They both took her in and helped Remi recover during her healing process.
