Constance is a fairly average human woman. Somewhat taller than the norm, she has thick black hair with a tendency to curl, and brown eyes usually hidden behind her glasses.
As befits an assassin, Constance is ever so slightly insane. However, this is rarely noticeable, unless something that is important to her enters the conversation. Depending on what it is, she will demand you fetch some (chocolate), make dreamy comments about it (Agent Dafydd), or threaten to kill you over it (if you call her 'Connie').
Constance Sims was recruited under false pretenses in 1995 HST, at the age of 13. She joined the Department of Mary Sues and was partnered with Agent Althea Gold. Due to her rudimentary medical training (the word 'precocious' describes her childhood well), she was rapidly seconded to the Medical Department as a nurse. During her tenure with Medical she was peripherally involved in the Reorganisation Crisis, being present at the attempted murder of Dassie Hyrax. However, she survived the catastrophe, and continued in her work. She is also known to have been assigned to FicPsych, also as a nurse, at some times.
On the 6th April, 2002, Constance was permanently partnered with Steve Dimond, another member of the DMS. The two of them went on multiple missions over the next few years, but few of these have been recorded.
In 2004, Constance was temporarily partnered with Dafydd Illian for a series of taxing missions. They were continually placed together over the following two years, and an intimate relationship grew between them. Dafydd could often be found in her response centre while off-duty, to the exasperation of her full-time partner, Steve.
In 2006, shortly before the Crashing Down crisis, Constance and Dafydd were on a mission together, and Dafydd got himself killed. After Constance brought him back to life, the pair retired from the PPC to live a quiet life far away from HQ. Sometime prior to 2008 HST, Constance acquired a gold fire-lizard, Hera. She is named after the Greek goddess, because (according to Constance) 'they're both queens with a jealous streak.'
The couple have five children, all of whom are as thoroughly uncontrollable as their parents. These children are:
- Tanfin Illian (2007)
- Jasmine Sims (2009)
- Belladonna Vishort (2010)
- Daphne Illian (2012)
- Oleander Illian (2013)

- 2005 - Temporarily partnered with Aella for a Young Wizards mission.
