"WARNING: NOVEL ALERT. Use Caution and watch out for the novelization signals."Angela Hansen, contains Pacific Rim novelization plot and/or ending details that have been classified as non-canon or outdated with the current Pacific Rim mythology.
During Scissure’s attack, Angela is still working in the downtown district of Sydney nearest to the Kaiju after it survives the first nuclear missile attack somewhere off on the islands away from the city. During the second nuclear missile attack, the building she worked in is destroyed.
The aftermath of the attack leaves the Pan Pacific Defense Corps uncertain about the nature of her death; their official story is that she was killed by the Kaiju. The information is later relayed to her husband, Hercules Hansen, by Stacker Pentecost.
