Not much is known of the life of the three year old Emily. She was adopted by the Sims after her birth and lived in San Diego. She suffered from severe anemia. When her adoptive mother, Mrs. Roberta Sim, dies, Scully investigates, noting the striking resemblance between her deceased sister Melissa and Emily. Investigations initially reveal that the DNA of Melissa and Emily match, where another test shows later that Dana Scully is indeed the mother of Emily Sim. Scully then decides to adopt the girl, which is declined by the court and Emily eventually dies from complications of her illness.
