Major Carrie Farris is an officer in the United States Air Force. She is the assistant to General Calvin Swanwick, the head of operations of United States Northern Command.
Major Carrie Farris arrived at Peterson Air Force Base with General Calvin Swanwick when an anonymous UFO (later revealed to be the starship of General Zod) appeared in Earth's orbit. She was later present when Emil Hamilton gave his briefing to Swanwick as to what terraforming was (via Zod's Black Zero starship and the World Engine working in tandem) and its apocalyptic danger to the planet, and to mankind.
Later, after the alien invaders were defeated, Farris was driving Swanwick, when a drone crashed to the ground in front of them. Kal-El (now called "Superman") then told the General to stop trying to find his address and information on him. She smiled in spite of herself as Superman took off again, in awe of the handsome alien.
She is later seen attending Superman's grandiose military funeral, along with Swanwick.
Major Farris is a woman of relatively few words, being patriotically dedicated to her job and country, and fiercely loyal to Secretary of Defense Swanwick, while also greatly admiring the alien hero Superman.
