An Edenist, daughter of Athene, and captain of the Voidhawk Oenone, Syrinx served a two year term in the military, where she conspicuously failed to catch Joshua Calvert smuggling contraband, before becoming a commercial trader. She runs into Calvert on several more occasions throughout the books. Syrinx traded Norfolk Tears in Auckland before going to Pernik. Syrinx was cared for in Azara after the Pernik events. Syrinx travels to the Kiint home world to investigate their knowledge of the possession phenomena, and undertakes various other missions for the Confederation.
