Kimberly "Kim" Mills is the daughter of Bryan Mills. Kim's kidnapping at the hands of sex-traffickers is the catalyst for much of the events of Taken series.


Abducted in Paris[]

In 2008, after Kim and her friend Amanda get off the plane and out of the airport in Paris, Amanda takes a picture of Kim. A French man called Peter asks them if they want him to take a picture of both of them and they say yes. After Peter takes the picture he asks them if they'd like to get a taxi with him and again they say yes. Kim and Amanda show Peter where they are and Peter asks if they'd like to go to a party which they also say yes to. Once the girls are inside, Peter makes a phone call in French then walks off.

Once the girls are in the apartment Amanda turns the radio on and plays loud music, meanwhile Bryan Mills (Kim's dad) calls Kim. Kim tells Amanda she needs the toilet. On the way back from the bathroom, Kim notices that her phones ringing. She answers it and finds out her dad's been trying to call her. Because of the loud music, Kim goes back into the bathroom.

Kim tells Bryan how Amanda's cousins are in Spain and that she really didn't know about it, Bryan replies by saying "is there anything else you want to tell me". Kim who is watching Amanda through the window notices men in the room. Kim tells Bryan what's happening and he tells her to go into the next bedroom and hide under the bed. The men walk into the room and talk in a different language, Bryan asks Kim to lower the phone so he can hear better. The men walk out of the room and Kim tells Bryan they're gone, then about a millisecond later she is then grabbed.

Bryan and the kidnapper talk briefly, then the kidnapper then crushes the phone. After a struggle, it is unknown where Kim has been taken. Bryan goes looking for Kim and finds her in an Auction where he tells a man to buy her. Later Bryan finds her on a boat where she is used as a human shield and held at knife point by a man called Raman. Bryan shoots Raman and saves Kim. Bryan then takes Kim back to the United States, where she thanks him for saving her life.

Bryan's abduction[]

In 2011, Kim and Lenore, who is currently having marital problems with Stuart, surprise Bryan by joining him in Istanbul, Turkey, where he has just finished a three-day security job. The next day, Lenore and Bryan go out for lunch. Bryan realizes they are being followed. After a chase, the men capture Lenore, forcing Bryan to surrender, but before he does, he calls Kim and warns her. Her would-be abductors shoot another hotel guest and two security guards, but fail to find her and are forced to flee.

Bryan wakes with his hands tied to a pole in a dark room. Using a communication device that he had hidden in his sock, Bryan calls Kim, instructing her to go to the US Embassy and tell them what happened, but she begs for a chance to help him and Lenore. Under Bryan's guidance, she opens his suitcase, containing weapons, and throws a grenade onto a deserted rooftop parking lot.

Bryan uses the time it takes for the sound of the explosion to reach him to help triangulate his position. He then has her take a gun and two more grenades and take to the rooftops. While he is tied up, the Albanian mobsters bring in a struggling Lenore and hang her upside down. One takes a knife and slits a tiny gash in her throat, which will kill her if not treated. Then Kim retreats into the dressing room and finds her new clothes father gave her and put her on her new underwear and shoes and socks and jeans and white t shirt and checkard shirt and trench coat sent by her dad.

They tell Bryan he has to watch her bleed out and die before he dies. When the mobsters leave Bryan is able to undo his chains and calls Kim to detonate two more grenades so he can determine his location. The grenade detonations enable Bryan to guide Kim close enough to see steam he sends up a chimney to mark his precise location. Kim tosses the gun down the chimney. Bryan uses it to kill the Albanians in the building, then saves Kim from her rooftop pursuer. Lenore, however, is taken away by her captors. Leaving Kim at the embassy, Bryan retraces the route to Murad's safe house he memorized from his abduction.

After killing the rest of the gangsters and rescuing Lenore, he confronts Murad, who confirms Bryan's guess that his two remaining sons will seek revenge if Bryan kills him. Bryan offers to let Murad live if he gives his word to end his vendetta. When the man nods his head, Bryan drops his gun and starts to walk away. Murad seizes it and tries to shoot Bryan, only to discover that Bryan has removed the bullets. His actions prove his untrustworthiness, and he is soon killed by Bryan when he kicks him onto a hook. Three weeks later, the Mills family are at a diner back home in southern California to celebrate Kim passing her driving test. They are joined, much to Bryan's surprise, by Kim's boyfriend Jamie. Kim jokingly asks her overprotective father not to shoot him.

Bryan framed[]

In 2014 Bryan has returned to Los Angeles, Kim has moved out and Mills and Lenore now have a much closer friendship. A few days before Kim's birthday, Bryan Mills unexpectedly arrives shortly after Kim verifies that she is pregnant. After a brief conversation, Bryan leaves for his apartment, where he is met by his ex-wife, Lenore "Lenny" Mills.

Lenny reveals that she and her current husband Stuart St. John are having relationship issues, and that she has begun to rekindle her romantic feelings for Bryan, however Bryan refuses to allow himself the pleasure of Lenny's company until such a time as she and Stuart work out their problems. Aware of the relationship between Lenny and Bryan, Stuart comes by Bryan's apartment to ask him politely but firmly to stay away from Lenny.

The following day, Lenny texts Bryan asking if she can come by to see him and if so to pick up bagels for the time together. Bryan obliges her request, but upon returning to his apartment discovers that Lenny has been murdered. Before he can react to this development, patrolmen of the Los Angeles Police Department arrive on the scene and move to arrest Bryan on suspicion of murder.

Needing time to gather actionable information to avenge his wife, Bryan disarms and knocks out the officers, but before he can leave additional policemen arrive in the area, precipitating a chase through the neighborhood. Eventually, Bryan is able to elude the police by making use of an underground storm drain located in a residential garage to covertly move away from the scene.

After calling Kim and informing her of Lenny's murder, Bryan sets out to investigate the homicide. Meanwhile, LAPD Inspector Franck Dotzler is assigned to Bryan's case, and begins the manhunt to locate and arrest Bryan.

Bryan begins his investigation by recovering weapons and electronics from a secure location, then retraces Lenny's footsteps, which leads him to a convenience store where he recovers surveillance footage of Lenny being grabbed by unidentified men. Before Bryan can act, LAPD detectives arrive and rearrest Bryan for murder, however when they report this information to Dotzler the inspector warns the detectives that they are being played, correctly guessing that Bryan wanted to be captured based on his discovery of Bryan's military service record.

Dotzler's concerns prove justified when Bryan picks the locks on his handcuffs and commandeers the police car he is in, resulting in a vehicle chase that ends when Bryan intentionally wrecks his car in an elevator shaft to elude the LAPD. Having accessed the LAPD's systems from the patrol car's laptop during the vehicle chase, Bryan begins analysis of the information.

Meanwhile, Kim has grown increasingly irritated with both Stuart and Dotzler. After attending Lenny's funeral, she is approached by Sam, a CIA colleague of Bryan who covertly alerts her to the presence of a bug from which Bryan is watching her. After being advised to stick to her daily routine, Kim purchases a yogurt drink and consumes it in the store before setting off for her college campus for class. After inexplicably becoming nauseated during class, Kim dismisses herself to use the restroom, where she meets with Bryan. Bryan explains that he spiked her yogurt to make her nausea so she would have to use the restroom, then offers Kim the antidote.

After removing a bug placed on Kim by the LAPD, Bryan and Kim exchange information. Bryan learns of Stuart's body guards, and after eluding the LAPD officers on campus follows the men down a scenic country route only to be ambushed by a black SUV, which pushes his car off the road. Commandeering a vehicle by force, Bryan follows the men to a liquor store where he confronts the quartet, but is unable to learn anything of use. Deducing that the men work for Stuart, Bryan abducts and harshly interrogates Stuart, who reveals that his debt to an ex-KGB Spetsnaz and Afghan War veteran operative named Oleg Malankov was the probable reason for Lenny's murder.

With assistance from his CIA colleagues and a reluctant Stuart, Bryan gains entry to Molankov's heavily guarded suite, but after dispatching the guards and mortally wounding Molankov he learns that Stuart had played both men against each other. In a delivery truck in the garage below the suite, Kim learns that while visiting Bryan to tell him to stay away from Lenore, he had taken Bryan's phone and sent a text to Lenore, asking to meet him at the gas station where she would later be abducted. When Kim attempts to warn Bryan of the danger that Stuart poses to him, Stuart shoots and wounds Sam and abducts Kim, intending to flee the country with the 12 million dollars he collected in life insurance from Lenny's death.

After locating his daughter from the tracker in her phone Bryan arrives at the airport just as Stuart's plane begins preparations for take off. After disabling the plane with the car, Bryan confronts Stuart and engages in a brief but violent struggle with him. Ultimately, Bryan emerges victorious and elects not to kill Stuart, warning him that while he may serve only a limited time in jail for Lenny's murder he will answer to Bryan for Lenny's death when he is released. Dotzler and his LAPD officers arrive shortly afterward and arrest Stuart.

In the aftermath of Stuart's arrest, Bryan, Kim and Kim's boyfriend discuss Kim's pregnancy. After assuring Kim that whatever she decides he will support her decision, Kim informs Bryan that if the baby is a girl she would like to name it Lenore after her mother.
