"Suppose there is constant danger to be found in our pursuit, with scientific and technical models, of that which we refer to as our 'potential.' In which case, it is only those who accept and acknowledge their own imperilment who are qualified to talk of the hidden potential of the electrosphere as if it were a wondrous dream or somewhat utopian. The coming world to which all shall presently proceed - yet, it is at this time still a domain composed of alien perceptions and feelings, where all is completely new, of which no one has yet experienced. If you insist that this place truly exists, then I would really like to know about it, to see it, to feel it. That's right. Even if the cost would be to endanger my body, I don't mind at all. Think about it. It is actually this flesh, necessary for us to live, that has imposed constraints on an existence so steeped in mystery as the soul and psyche. Have you never felt this? What I want is the ability to prise open the door to this new world. That and nothing else."
 
 
Although badly translated, it does give more insight into Cynthia's fascination with the Electrosphere.

Biography

Early life

The daughter of a wealthy Usean family, she was raised in a conservative background along with her sister Fiona, adopting an elitist and professional view of life, compared to the carefree attitude of her sibling. In 2033, she earned a master's degree in Genetic Engineering at the Chopinbrook University, then joined General Resource for the next four years. She then transferred to Neucom as a scientist, becoming a chief consultant in the Neucom Emergency Unit and one of the leading researchers of the R-series of aircraft, operating under the TAC name "Priest".

Corporate War

During the Intercorporate War simulation, if Nemo transfers to Neucom during "Scylla and Charybdis", Fiona will introduce them to Cynthia. Cynthia becomes Nemo's commanding officer in the Neucom Emergency Unit.

Cynthia is an advocate of sublimation and defects to Ouroboros after a Neucom raid on a General Resource air base. When the UI-4053 Sphyrna enters the combat zone, Cynthia takes the opportunity to follow her dreams. This is much to her sister's distress, who remains with Neucom.[1]

If Nemo remains with Fiona, Cynthia's human fate depends on the player. If the player heavily damages the UI-4053 at the end of "Resistance", Nemo must shoot down Cynthia's aircraft in the following mission.[2] Regardless if this happens or not, Cynthia's sublimated mind in the Electrosphere sends a message to Fiona about the wonders of the Electrosphere.[3]

If Nemo joins Cynthia and defects to Ouroboros, the pair will discover that they were being used and Cynthia will not attempt sublimation. Instead, they rejoin Neucom to help take down Ouroboros.[4]
