Lucy was an employee at Summakor, working on the Solutions floor where she read reports on people who were under surveillance.
Lucy was also 4-15, a blind Villager who was engaged to be married to Six.
Lucy is now deceased.
In New York, Lucy approaches Michael, who's sitting alone at a diner, and asks to borrow his cell phone. She's lost hers, she claims. They flirt with each other and Michael invites her back to his apartment. There, she admits that she too works at Summakor and asks him to explain why he left the company. "You think you resigned," she tells him. "They still control you."
Lucy suggests Michael go with her to the Solutions floor to find out what's going on but an irate Michael kicks her out. Later, he finds her unconscious in the hallway. After she wakes, the two kiss.
In The Village, Lucy is 4-15, a blind woman who is romantically matched to Six through The Village dating service. When Six says he feels that they knew each other in another life, 4-15 dismisses it as romantic fancy.
Unbeknownst to Six and 4-15, their feelings are being genetically manipulated by Two. In New York, Lucy suspects her passions for Michael are uncharacteristic of her: "It's like the dials are spinning and suddenly I'm letting go," she says. The next morning, Lucy insists they go to Summakor, but Michael just wants to bring her breakfast.
Six asks 4-15 to marry him; she accepts. But as she pulls up to the Church, 4-15 overhears that Six has been kissing 313. Distraught, she runs to the desert, where Rover attacks her.
Six runs to the unconscious 4-15. "You're called Lucy," he tells her. "We met in a place called New York." She tries to deny it, but eventually relents: "I'm Lucy," she says. Two brought her to The Village to break Six's heart.
In The Village, 4-15 jumps into a hole that leads to nothingness. In New York, Michael's apartment explodes – with Lucy inside.
Before she dies, Lucy records a message for Michael: "Nobody resigns from Summakor," she says. "They're selling tickets for your execution, Michael, but they're calling it a promotion. There is a place – another place. It's where they sent them; it's where they sent me; it's where they sent you. Whatever you do, stay away from Summakor."
