Odessa, the daughter of a couple of early recruits in the Brotherhood of Steel known as the "Knights Valdez," was enlisted by her parents into the organization as an apprentice scribe at a young age. Under the tutelage of Scribe Hailey Takano, Odessa learned to perform her role satisfactorily, taking a special interest in the operation of vertibirds and other flying machines.
At some point prior or around 2103, Valdez volunteered for an expedition to Appalachia in the East Coast, excited at the chance of having an adventure like her peers. She took the place of Scribe Takano, who was unable to join due to health concerns. Valdez insisted Takano stay behind for her health as well.
Valdez became the official scribe and keeper of the Scrolls of the Brotherhood First Expeditionary Force, and joined the original members of the expedition (Paladin Rahmani, Knight Connors, Knight Thornberry, and Knight Shin) east across the wasteland. After many months of hiking, the team finally made it to Fort Atlas, although Connors was killed in an incident while Thornberry went back to Lost Hills.
