The original Captain Avery was raised on a homestead with her mother and brother, Danny Avery, somewhere on the Island. She witnessed the Fog grow thicker and thicker, until islanders were driven to the Mariner's dock on the shore, which eventually became Far Harbor as most know, with Avery becoming the unofficial leader of the motley community. However, she also spoke out against the Children of Atom and their presence.
To calm the people down and prevent further conflict, DiMA killed Captain Avery and altered a synth to look exactly like her and take her place in Far Harbor, even to the point where the synth would believe she is the real Captain Avery by modifying her memories. As expected, the duplicate would be open to the idea of the Children of Atom being on the Island. According to Mitch, Avery had left the Island around '77 or '76 for a spell and when she had finally come back to Far Harbor, she had adopted many ideas from the mainlanders and was pushing Far Harbor to be more open.
When things got bad at the Avery homestead her brother Danny - now new owner of the homestead - wrote a letter to her requesting that she return home and help the remaining family and run the homestead as their mother had died and the Fog drew closer to the homestead daily. However, by the time the letter was sent, Olympia Avery was already dead and replaced by DiMA's synth; the plea for help going completely unanswered.

- Sole Survivor: "What's your beef with Avery?"
Mitch: "Avery was born on the island, but she left for a good long spell. Didn't come back until, well, ten? Eleven years ago? And since then she's been trying to make us adopt all sorts of mainland nonsense. I ain't arguing she doesn't do good or her heart being in the right place, but why change what ain't broke."
