In Mantle

Harriet and her team were called into Mantle because of reports of a stolen Atlesian airship entering its airspace and because of the unauthorized use of weapons by civilians. The culprits were Team RWBY, Team JNPR, Qrow Branwen and Oscar Pine, who defended the city from a pack of Sabyrs. Harriet and her team caught them by surprise and seized their weapons before leaving them in the custody of the authorities.

Following the release of their quarries, Harriet and the rest of Ace-Ops apologize for the miscommunication, before the students are introduced to Atlas Academy by Penny Polendina.

Martial Law

V7 11 00126.png

Harriet continues to help until they are suddenly called back to Atlas Academy under direct orders from Ironwood, where she assures RWBY that they shouldn't question Ironwood's orders. Team RWBY and the Ace Ops go to Ironwood's office, where he reveals that one of Salem's subordinates left a black queen chess piece on his desk. He begins panicking, questioning if everything that he and the others did was part of Salem's plan. Ironwood questions whether or not Team RWBY really is on his side and asks them how Robyn knew about the Amity Tower project. Yang confesses that she and Blake told her, leading to an argument as Harriet is enraged. The argument becomes more and more heated, and suddenly, a Seer bursts out of Watts' bag, dies, and breaks open to release a smoky apparition of Salem.

Salem proclaims that Watts and Tyrian's mission was not to secure victory, but rather to set the stage for Salem herself. She then attempts to convince Ironwood to surrender but is soon distracted by Ruby delivering a speech about how they learned the truth about her from the Relic of Knowledge and will still stop her even without killing her. Salem tells Ruby that Summer Rose once said those same words but was proven wrong, causing Ruby to break down crying with her silver eyes flickering and flaring.

The Salem apparition disappears, and Harriet begins to worry, especially upon realizing that the proximity alarms along the coast near Atlas are inactive. Blake asks about the readiness to launch the Amity Tower, but Yang realizes that Ironwood just said that to lure out Watts. Ironwood then explains that he intends to raise the City of Atlas into the atmosphere instead of Amity Tower. There, the city, the two Relics and the Winter Maiden will be safe from Salem. Team RWBY protests that this plan would mean leaving people in Mantle to die due to the evacuation not being complete, but Ironwood refuses to reconsider.

Suddenly, Jaune opens a group call with Ruby, Qrow and Winter. Taking the opportunity, Ruby uses her Semblance to get past Ironwood and warn the others about his plan. Ironwood locks communications, declares that Team RWBY are under arrest, and leaves while the Ace-Ops get ready to detain them.

Harriet vs Ruby

As RWBY and the Ace-Ops prepare to fight, Marrow hesitantly asks Harriet if their plan really is to fight. Harriet insists they'll let RWBY decide, and the Ruby initiates a battle. Ruby bursts out of the room, causing Harriet to chase her in anger. Ruby tries to talk Harriet into stopping their fight and working to stop Ironwood, but Harriet brushes her off and says she didn't trust RWBY from the start. As Ruby and Harriet's fight returns to the office, Harriet yells at Marrow, telling him to stop holding back against RWBY. Marrow insists that he's only trying to arrest them, and that she was taking things too far, seeming as though she wants to kill RWBY. Harriet does not deny this, and instead says it's necessary.

Ruby leaves the room causing Harriet to chase her again, where she is eventually overpowered by Ruby and Weiss due to exhaustion. Team RWBY then ties Harriet and the Ace-Ops to their Gravity Bolas, and leave them in Ironwood's office.

After Clover's fight with Tyrian Callows, Harriet and the remaining Ace-Ops grieve over their dead leader with Ironwood and Winter. When Sleet and Camilla arrive in a rage at Ironwood's decision, the Ace-Ops are shocked to see their leader kill the councilman. Upon seeing this, Harriet hardens herself to Winter's shock.

Ace Ops vs Penny

When Ruby, Weiss, Blake, Nora, and Penny arrive and breach the Atlesian Command Center, the Ace-Ops confront the group under orders to capture Penny. The five of them confront the group in a large room, where Vine and Marrow attempt to talk Penny into coming with them and surrendering the Relic of Creation to Ironwood for safekeeping. Harriet and Elm accuse Penny of stealing the Winter Maiden powers from Winter Schnee, depriving her of her destiny, and goad Penny into fighting alone, with Harriet specifically threatening to throw Ruby in jail alongside her uncle if she doesn't stop talking. Penny is eventually subdued, but when Ruby's Group break free and attack the Ace-Ops, they lose control of her. Ironwood starts to order reinforcements, but Watts stops him, ordering the Ace-Ops to steal one sword from Floating Array. Completing this goal, Ace-Ops retreat with it and reunite with the rest of Ironwood's forces, where Harriet dismisses Ironwood's praise, claiming that "good work" would have been capturing Penny.

Harriet and Marrow later return Watts to his cell, where the latter accuse Qrow of murdering Clover, refusing to believe him due to finding his blood all over Qrow's weapon. This angers Robyn, who nearly goads Harriet into a fight before she is stopped by Marrow.

As Ruby begins to send out a broadcast to the world about Salem, the Relics, the Maidens, and the ongoing situation in Atlas, Harriet angrily switches off the screen that the rest of the Ace Ops and Ironwood were watching at the part where Ruby said Ironwood can no longer be trusted. Afterwards, Watts switches out a chip in Penny's sword, hacking her and causing her signal to disappear. After being told Penny was likely rebooting, Ironwood angrily throws his Scroll at Watts, leading to the Scroll becoming broken. He then orders Winter Schnee to take the Ace-Ops and search for Penny. As he leaves the room, he tells Harriet to take Watts back to his cell, which she agrees to happily. The two fail to notice Watts picking up Ironwood's broken Scroll after casually turning off the computers.

Whilst flying towards Mantle Harriet sees the rear hatch has been opened and puts the autopilot on allowing to investigate finding Vine. She orders him to keep watch as she goes to set the bombs timer when she is stopped by Vine who no longer feels this is the best course of action now that Ruby has used the staff and Atlas is fully.

When Vine states Clover was wrong, Harriet becomes emotional as Vine mentions Clover meant a lot to her, reaching out to comfort her when the ship lurches being rammed by a ship piloted by Robyn. Harriet uses this to open the rear hatch, launching Vine out who grabs onto the ship for support before being kicked out by Harriet, once again grabbing onto the ship with his Semblance.
