|Title||The Ocean Tamer|
|Real Name||Syn Stennefo|
|First Appearance||The Piraknights|
|Date of Birth||5th May|
|Place of Birth||Piraknight's ship, during Arcanian Ocean voyage|
|Voice Actor||Katherine Randle|
Syn Stennefo (Syn) is the daughter of the Piraknight's captain, Ethan.
Syn was born during the Piraknight's voyage across the Arcanian Ocean. Her mother passed away as soon as she was born, and Syn was rescued by Palladium when Sahar monsters attacked the ship and tried to take the infant away.
Upon arriving to the Terminus port, her father is killed by Sakun. The crew insisted to make her their new captain, much to her discomfort in leading others. She is recruited into the Terminus Royal Knights under Cloud's recommendation.
Outgoing, lively and friendly, Syn gets along well with others, although she is extremely shy around new faces. Being raised amongst seafaring men had given her a tomboyish personality, along with a strong vocabulary of sailor-talk (which people don't understand most of the time). Though very much a tomboy, she is easily upset by others calling her a boy, or comparing her to other girls that have the looks and feminity she doesn't.
Further into the series after the loss of her crew, Syn becomes less lively, and is often seen with a sad expression on her face, although around others, she still tries to seem like her old self.
AppearanceSyn's hair was originally light blond, but slowly lost its color and turned into a silverish white as she grew up. Her irises are a light shade of brown like her father's. During the Piraknight's voyage, she usually wears sleeveless tops and vests with pants and modified knee-high boots that were made for swimming.
Upon arrival at Terminus port, she starts wearing her father's coat that Nevie had sewn back together and dyed to fit the former's smaller body and fashion taste. She also wears the Dreadnaught Armor, a suit of armor provided to the middle ranks of the Terminus Royal Knights.
There are times when she is seen wearing skirts and dresses in public, but very rarely.
She later loses eyesight in her left eye after getting hit with a wooden plank by an angry salesman who accused her of stealing his fruits. A medical patch is worn over it to cover the scar caused by the incident.
Abilities + Weapons
Trained as a knight, Syn is efficient in using a sword and shield, but prefers not to use a shield as she claims it 'bothers her ability to move freely'. Her attacks often consist of acrobatic movements and dodges (as she'd rather avoid fighting directly with anyone).
She is also unusually agile in water, able to move as freely in it as a person would on land. Her ability to hold her breath underwater for long amounts of time also serves her well on that part.
Her agility presumably comes from being raised amongst seafaring men that constantly have to think on their feet and take swift actions.
MandyMandy is Syn's pet mandragora. The critter was accidentally picked up by Nevie during a voyage, when the crew stopped on an island to gather food supplies. As Nevie was about to chop it up for dinner, it awakened from slumber and jumped onto Syn's face in a panic. Over time, Mandy grew attached to Syn.
Mandy is about the size of Syn's hand, and wears a tiny red scarf around her neck. She is smaller than most mandragoras, and is presumably still just a baby.
- She especially enjoys fishing; not with a rod and bait, but by jumping into the water itself to catch fish with her hands and sometimes, mouth.
- Her favourite word of insult is 'landblubber'.
- Her favourite song is 'A Pirate's Life for Me' (:D).
- She keeps a personal record of how long she can hold her breath underwater. Her current record is 2 minutes.
