She was on her way to work her shift when the bombs exploded during the bombing of the Růžička Station. Before police arrived at the scene, Pavla is approached by Simon Whittaker, a member of Tarvos Security, who presented himself as part of the investigation. Pavla gives Whittaker the code to the Intellicam server room, permitting Whittaker to corrupt the footage, thereby turning the footage into distorted images. When the police is about to arrive, Whittaker gives Pavla a bribe and leaves.
After the event, Pavla contacts Task Force 29's Peter Chang and indicates that she has information about the footage. Chang sends Adam Jensen to question Pavla. Pavla recounts the events of the incident, leading Jensen to continue his investigation by heading to a Tarvos Security compound.
