Sy finds it difficult to figure her out. She seems to express her emotions openly, but her end goals are always hidden. Her speciality is grand designs, large-scale actions that change everything. She wins people over by promising to save them, heal them, but the people closest to her are the ones too broken to heal.
Departed Radham Academy in 1921, in the company of Walter Gund, she travelled between towns evading pursuit and setting up a plan to have the Crown's chemical leash and sterilisation plans activated years ahead of schedule. She met the Lambs of Lambsbridge, and she made them an offer to defect. Stitch in Time.
In 1922 or 1923, she aided the escape of Mavis Pardoe, alias Avis, from her imprisonment at the order of the Duke of Francis. In the spring of 1923, she organised a meeting of the fractured rebel factions at Brechwell, to unite against their enemies.

↑“It’ll be something like that. And it sounds awfully good. She understands. She has the resources, and she has the willingness to help, which was the main thing you lacked. If you work with her, then your dreams will come true. You’ll be able to do this, but on a far greater scale. She’ll promise to fix your brain. And all of this? It’s true. Completely honest. Her background, the parallels to your own experience, the promise to fix your brain.” [...] The reality was, Fray’s collection of wounded that she kept close were the deeply wounded.
