Commander White is the head of the YoRHa Command. Before the events of the main game she sent A2, then Number 2, and her squad to lead an attack on a machine server on Hawaii. Although it was expected that none of the prototypes would survive, the mission ended in success. As the single surviving YoRHa android, A2 was perceived as a traitor.
