How can I save Tyria if I can't even save my friends?
The Commander was unstable. After Scarlet's death, Sinéad refused to rest; as soon as a trail was revealed she was back on the front again. The Jungle Dragon's advance was relentless, and she pressed on despite Kyrie, Trahearne and Giralein’s increasing worry.
Finally it all snaped during the Concordia incident: after a Mordrem assault, Sinéad attacked Magister Irene out of paranoia, suspecting that all Soundless might be under Mordremoth's control. Giralein and Gialinn took offense and refused to help any further, and the rest of Defiant Heart was divided because of the generalized distrust.
They however had to work together during the World Summit to bring the leaders of the world together. There, Sinéad apologized to her sylvari friends, and decided to trust them no matter what. Still, Giralein felt uneasy about his norn friend, and wouldn't let it go completely.
After the Pact's defeat, Defiant Heart had to act fast. Still refusing to lay down her weapons, Sinéad lead the scatteted Pact forces deep in the jungle, hoping to stop the slaughter and save Destiny's Edge and her friend Trahearne. However, her efforts proved futile; she lost her first mentor Eir and had to put an end to Trahearne's suffering.
She finally broke. Sinéad couldn’t bear to look Kyrie -Trahearne's widow- in the eye, and felt responsible for all the causalities. She returned to Hoelbrak by herself -as her norn guildmates disbanded, each dealing with their grief in their own ways-, and unable to deal with it all, she crashed at Sigfast's homestead.
They had an on/off relationship, mostly on Sigfast's part. Even if they had other lovers, they returned to each other whenever Sinéad was home. It was strange that it was Sinéad the one to look for him, so Sigfast took care of her.
Months went by, and Sinéad made a promise to herself and her defunct friends; she would return to her duties and end the Dragon's threat. But she needed a better weapon to do so.
And so, she started the long journey to forge Frostfang.
