Before the crash of the Hunter GratznerEdit
Carolyn (who went chiefly by "Fry") had accumulated enough deep-space hours to qualify for Pilot First Class but failed to take the exam. She had anxiety regarding extended Cryosleep. She was deep in cryosleep when the Hunter Gratzner started to crash.
After The CrashEdit
Fry barely managed to land The Hunter on M6-117. In an attempt to save herself and land the craft safely she tried to jettison all of the passengers, but the navigator on the ship, Greg Owens, refused to let her. Owens's attempt to stop her ultimately cost him his life. In the aftermath of the crash, Fry found Owens impaled by a ship component, possibly a handle of some kind, and was forced to watch him die an extraordinarily painful death, an event that greatly upset her. As the only member of the crew left alive, as well as the person who had appeared to have saved all of them, the passengers all looked to her as the leader, mistaking her for the captain of the ship. Fry was reluctant to assume the role, but the support of the mercenary William J. Johns eventually led her to organize a search party for water.
While talking in the Boneyard with Johns, who was attempting to track and subsequently recapture Riddick, Fry revealed that she was not the captain and that she had tried to jettison the passengers, to Johns. Unknown to both her and Johns, Riddick was behind the bones she was leaning against, listening, and cut a small tuft of her hair and smelled it, then blowing it out hand. Later, while Fry did a pre-flight check on the skiff, Riddick corners her and reveals the truth about Johns (that he is a morphine addict and a mercenary). While wary of Riddick, Fry confronted Johns who did nothing to hide his status. Later, with the coming of the eclipse and the Bioraptors, Fry and the other survivors took cover in one of the sections of the ship. While en route to the skiff, Johns used the knowledge that Fry had tried to kill the passengers to try to undermine her, but the dire situation convinced the rest of the passengers to be pro-active about their survival.
Fry is the one that proposed letting Riddick use his Eyeshine to guide the remaining survivors back to the skiff discovered at the settlement with the needed power cells. The plan went well until a panicked Paris wrecked the sled and their primary light source, resulting in his death. The dwindling group, using lit bottles of alcohol for light, kept moving. Riddick revealed to the others that the Bioraptors were tracking their group because Jack was actually a girl and was bleeding. Fry may have begun to make plans with Imam and the others to abandon Riddick and Johns at this time, suspicious of both. When Riddick saw that there was a canyon ahead of them crawling with Bioraptors, Johns moves up to talk to him. Sensing tension, Fry takes the opportunity to slow the other survivors down, increasing the distance between them and the two men.
When Johns suggested to Riddick that he kill Jack and use the body as bait, Riddick attacked him, showing his uncharacteristic "soft spot" for children. Mainly out of fear, Fry led the others away, although Riddick rapidly caught up. Riddick had the other remaining three hide in a small cave, ostensibly so he could take the power cells to the skiff and proceed to come get them. In actuality, he did this so he could abandon them on the planet without protest. Fry found an alternate light source and caught him as he powered up the ship readying to take off. Impressed with her survival instinct, Riddick offered to let her come with him. Fry eventually attempts to attack Riddick, but he swiftly pinned her to the ground, putting his shiv to her throat.
Fry claimed that she would die for the other two people back in the cave, to which Riddick remarked "Interesting." Riddick accompanied Fry back to the cave to get Imam and Jack, actually smiling a bit. When they got back to the settlement, Riddick became seperated from the others by a Bioraptor and urged the others to keep going. At first Riddick hid in a blind spot directly in front of the Bioraptor's "nose". However, a second Bioraptor appeared, leading Riddick to draw his shiv. At the settlement, Fry left Imam and Jack to get Riddick, and found him wounded and bleeding, and may also have seen the two slaughtered Bioraptors (although this is doubtful, since it was extremely dark). As she helped get Riddick to his feet, she told him that she would die for the others, not him. Suddenly a Bioraptor impaled her with its tail, and ripped her body away from Riddick. Riddick showed sadness and pain at her death, bellowing after her "Not for me!".
