- “Cynthia Daniels. From Oakland. Found her file in missing persons.”
- ―Detective Dowling[src]
Originally from Oakland, Cynthia had been reported missing in 1941. At some point she relocated to San Francisco. Some weeks following the destruction of the Seed of Wonder, Cynthia was slain by Severin, who removed the demon essence from her body. As Cynthia's corpse was found, San Francisco Police Department detectives Robert Dowling and Miranda Cheung investigated the death of various similarly mysterious deaths.
