Emily Nelson is the cousin of Jane Foster. When her story begins, she is a college student at Arizona State University. She is recruited by the Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division, otherwise known as S.H.I.E.L.D., to study the Tesseract with Dr. Erik Selvig (longtime friend and mentor of Emily's). This came about because of the events that took place in New Mexico, when Thor was banished to Midgar (Earth). Reference Thor (movie).
In The Linguist (read chapter 1 here), Emily is abducted by Loki, an Asgardian prince.
