Interpretation of Sinn by Corporal Nobbs

Sinn was a young mage from Seven Cities. She was described as "young, slight and pallid". She had a brother, Shard, who was a member of the Ashok Regiment. Sinn, it seemed, stayed in Seven Cities while her brother was posted in Genabackis and at some point studied with Fayelle[1] (unpleasantly) to learn magic.

Sinn initially used speech[2] but became more and more reticent until in the later books many assumed her to be either mute or dumb.

She told Grub that she had had a Tanno Spiritwalker as tutor.[3]

In House of ChainsEdit

The Ashok Regiment was trapped in the cliffside fortress of B'ridys by a group of Seven Cities' rebels led by Irriz. Sinn pretended to help the rebels but sabotaged their equipment and attempted to kill them, hoping to free her brother. With the help of Kalam Mekhar, Sinn joined Shard in the fortress.[4]

On Kalam's advice, together with the other remaining members of the Ashok Regiment, they headed towards Raraku. During the Battle of Raraku the Ashok regiment caught Fayelle and some other Whirlwind members as they were fleeing, and Sinn killed Fayelle.[5] They then joined the Bonehunters.

In The BonehuntersEdit

Spoiler warning: The following section contains significant plot details about Sinn.

Interpretation of Sinn by Shadaan

She eventually found herself with sergeant Cord's 7th squad, 9th Company, 8th Legion of the Bonehunters.[6] She developed a very close friendship with Grub, the only person who knew that she was only mute by choice.

It was because of her powers that a majority of the Bonehunters were able to escape the firestorm during the Siege of Y'Ghatan. Sinn also knew, by instinct, that several marines had survived the fires and she stayed behind, along with Faradan Sort, to help them out from beneath the city.

She was a natural High Mage, wielding the warren of Telas and ultimately was promoted to the rank of High Mage within the Bonehunters.

In Reaper's GaleEdit

She helped the Bonehunters' ships reach the coast of Lether by shattering the ice-fields surrounding it.

In Dust of DreamsEdit

She and Grub followed Bent and Roach into the dying Azath house in Letheras and disappeared into a Warren for a time, only to reappear at a crucial point in the battle between the K'Chain Nah'ruk and the K'Chain Che'Malle. She helped the Che'Malle win the battle by incinerating several Nah'ruk Skykeeps.

In The Crippled GodEdit

Sinn was increasingly feared by those around her. The K'Chain Che'Malle Assassin Gu'Rull even thought to kill her and Grub.[7] As time went on, her powers increased, but, at the same time, her grasp of reality and her allegiance to the Bonehunters waned. In her mind she relived her rape and mistreatment (as well as that of her family) which happened during the Seven Cities Rebellion. Obsessing about this fueled her rage and contributed to her becoming increasingly psychopathic. Her internal musings also revealed her complicity in the killing of Keneb, which was caused by her wanting to remove the Fist from Grub's life.[8] Ultimately, she turned against the Bonehunters and was killed by Stormy on the steps of the Great Spire.[9]

Quotes Edit

"I am your fire, Grub, and I will burn to ash anything and anyone who dares gets close to you. That is why I rode the lizard’s lightning, that brilliant fire. I rode it straight for Keneb."
