Sykaara was born in the village of Smyrna, a city in the
country that became Turkey, and into a life of slavery. Her mother,
Pyroami, also a slave, ran away from the village they were from
after learning that all slave infants were going to be executed
because of overpopulation.
Pyroami gathered the few belongings she had and found a trade
caravan to join. She ran away with the caravan until she came to
Themiscyra. Having heard that the Amazons were known to assist
troubled women, she left the caravan and made her way to the
tribe. She explained to the Themiscyrans about her situation, and
the Amazons agreed to raise Sykaara as one of them and to tell her
of her past only when she had grown. Pyroami left the protection
of the Amazons so that no one would ever know where her child had
gone and was never heard from again.
Now, Sykaara is sixteen years of age and is a brave, honorable
warrior in the Themiscyran tribe. Her favorite weapons are the
sais and she stands at five feet, eight inches with a lean but
muscled body. She has brown hair that reaches past her shoulders
and blue eyes.
