Xynea is commonly referred to as the swamp witch by the colonists. They fear her and speak her name in hushed tones. There are rumors that she takes bits from the corpses of the recently dead to use in dark blood magic rituals, and others say she simply eats the corpses. However, she is the only means of communication with the Yeomanry, as she employs a mystical artifact to communicate with Spokesman Alvaro directly.
