Cynthy was found in the ruins of a house in the city of Portmeirion, Skye, which was destroyed during a reprisal strike. Cynthy was going to be taken to be indoctrinated into the Clan way of life, but Malvina took pity on her because Malvina believed her to be brave in the face of fear; so instead of being taken by the solahma infantry, Cynthy was instead taken away by Malvina.
Since being picked up by the Falcons, Cynthy has been kept around Malvina who has kept her around like a pet, being treated more like an experiment rather than a human being. Video footage of Cynthy shows a teenage girl who acts and physically displays the characteristics of someone who deals with abuse and has the signs of post-traumatic stress.
