This wiki is very much under construction. The original wiki was set to be shut down and the wiki was largely mirrored to a Fandom-based version, though most of the reference images had not yet been copied over. This migration was put on hold when it appeared the original wiki could in fact be retained, however the old wiki was lost in its entirety when the server was among the many taken down by a massive series of cyberattacks on data centers during early February, 2023. It is now being rebuilt with the launch of Hel. Sorry if it's a little messy right now!

Biography - Arc III
Shynt is among the Sarghress defenders holding off the Hermionne siege on Machike'Shikumo.<ref>Chapter 52, page 3</ref> He took up a position among the drow artillery, sniping at the invaders with his crossbow.
Surprise Attack By The Nidraa'chal
Later, after the Machike residents gathered their wounded to recover from their victory against the Hermionnes, Snadhya'rune sent an envoy in the form of Kyo'nne Val'Illhar'dro, who promised assistance for the colony in return for Ariel accompanying her to Felde. When Ariel refused and ordered Kyo'nne to return to her mistress, the ship made as if to leave, but returned shortly and began bombarding the colony with its mana cannons. Shynt participated in a counter-attack that was prepared in the event the airship returned, sniping at the airship crew on the upper deck.<ref>Chapter 52, page 35</ref>
When the airship returned a second time, this time with a bombardment of gigantic rocks in tow, Shynt joined Ariel yet again in a desperate attempt to draw the airship away from the colony, joining a group of approximately thirty able bodies who had survived the latest barrage on Machike.
As the defenders made to leave, they encountered an Alliance traveling party, led by Oiloss'lin Xyrrai'zestu Sharen. Hiding quickly, they managed to avoid being detected by the Alliance warriors, as they did not know the motives of the travellers or their destination. After the party was ambushed by Kavahini warriors, Oiloss'lin resorted to nether summoning to scatter the ambushers. As one of the wounded Koubagia Kavahini attempted to escape, she was chased by one of the summoned demons, and made her way towards the rocks where the Machike defenders were hidden. Not wanting to allow a demon to attack their own group, Bal'diira sealed it away, while the others tended to Koubagia.
Shynt watched over the rescue from a vantage point on a boulder nearby, until he was landed on by another Kavahini warrior, Chakri Kavahini. She demanded the release of her comrade, and when Ariel attempted to negotiate a possible alliance, she challenged the defenders to earn the Kavahini's respect by taking the airship.
Escape to Sha'shi
Taking on Chakri's challenge to prove themselves worthy of being the Kavahini's allies, the defenders continued to play cat-and-mouse with Snadhya'rune's airship, leaving a trail of stuffed dummies and stone counterfeits to draw the fire of the mana cannons and to lure the ship deeper into the underworld. Eventually, they located Sha'shi, a research outpost located in the heart of the underworld which was home to a group of engineers studying golem technology and the nearby pieces of the fallen moon that had formed the underworld millenia ago.
A Desperate Gamble
After forging a temporary alliance with the engineers of Sha'shi, the Machike defenders decided to make an attempt to board and capture the Nidraa'chal airship when it landed at the outpost to take on supplies. Shynt did not make it on to the ship initially, as the airship's crew was warned of the Sarghress presence after Da'xia spotted Ariel on the ground.<ref>Chapter 52, page 88</ref> After the boarding party was pinned down by Bae'rali Val'Sullisin'rune, they were then released by Faen Val'Sullisin'rune, who countered the powerful empath. Mek'kel and the remaining defenders were then able to board the ship to continue the take-over attempt.
