Nothing is certain. Not time, not people, not home. Syrean learned early to be adaptable, to change as quickly as the wind. She lost her mother and father at the same time. Her mother ceased to be tangible, while her father existed physically but abandoned her to the madness that consumed his mind. She did not post blame on either, nor did she attempt to argue for favor with God. She simply changed to be what she needed to be when she needed to be that, and fulfill the role the matron of the house required her to. When her father passed, she shed the skin of her birth name for a stage name. Born Syrean Balabanov, she became Syrean Williams, a contortionist in a small offshoot of the previously named Circus Hinné. The attempt at a revival proved unfruitful, sending her back to her childhood home in time for fate to intervene. An old friend of her fathers came requesting his aid, unaware of his passing. It is this request that has brought her to New Alexandria and whatever role she may need to fill now, for the honor of her father.
