During life, she was raised by a drunken old alchemist. He taught her to steal to fund his gambling addiction. He also taught her to find herbs and create potions to help with his livelihood. She learned to sneak and kill out of necessity.

She died in an Andorhal prison from the plague, and later rose as a servant of the Lich King before being freed by the Dark Lady's call.

History In The Grim: Syreena joined The Grim four months after it was founded. Since then, she has improved her killing skills. She's become a competent killer for the Mandate, and has helped train the other Grim rogues. During her time in The Grim, she was reunited with her twin sister, Anaie. The greatest compliment she's ever received was from someone who proposed marriage to her, and she turned him down only because he was not Grim. He laughed and said, "You are Grim through and through."

Shortly after the Dark Portal opened, Syreena became the Dreadweaver in charge of all Grim rogues. She excelled at killing, and she taught the other rogues her techniques or helped them perfect their own. She spent much time helping The Grim kill things in old magic towers and underwater caverns. She also spent a great deal in the goblin arenas with Duranor's Irregulars and smaller teams. Around this time she also ran into the old gambler who raised her in life. He was also undead by now, and Syreena spent some time playing mind games with him, intending to kill him when she was finished toying with him. Unfortunately, he slipped away, and she still has plans to find him again some day to make him pay for the way he treated her.

Around the time the Horde sailed for Northrend, Syreena became the guild master of The Grim. During this time, Grims bestowed upon her the title of Shadowblade, which she later adopted as her last name. She was in charge for one year, while also killing in Ulduar and the Lich King's Citadel with a team of Grims that called themselves the Puppies. The two roles ended up at odds with each other, preventing the little rogue from being effective or comfortable with either. Eventually, feeling like she was constantly being torn in two, she quit both positions, returning the guild to Abric. She stepped back into the shadows for a while.

After the Cataclysm, for a short time, Syreena was the overseer of the teams fighting threats to the Horde other than the Alliance, though she rarely participated herself. Then, when someone else finally stepped up to take over that job, she returned to the relatively responsibility free rank of Harbinger for the remainder of that period.

In Pandaria, Syreena enjoyed her time as Harbinger. She started training some of her many pets for combat, she learned to tend to plants, and she again participated in large scale battle with The Grim in places like the Throne of Thunder and when Orgrimmar was under siege.

Then came the day she was called to duty once again. The High Inquisitor was in need of an assistant and had chosen her. After some thought, she decided that becoming an Inquisitor may be the best way she could shape the future of The Grim, and she accepted. Not too long after that, the High Inquisitor retired, and Syreena stepped into that role. She enjoyed testing the new Grims in various ways, sometimes without them even knowing they were being tested Her purpose was to train the new Grims in the ways of the old Grims, to preserve the ways of the Mandate, and to instill in them the desire to achieve peace through annihilation.

A few months after the portal to Draenor opened, conflict arose between Sanctuary and The Grim. A rogue Sanctuary member nearly killed a Grim in an unprovoked attack. In anger and revenge, Syreena attacked another Sanctuary member. She failed to kill him, however, and worse, was identified. As punishment for her failure, she was demoted back down to Harbinger, and assigned the task of destroying any traitors to the Horde. She did manage to kill a few other Sanctuary members, but her original Sanctuary target bested her when she faced him again, and he cut off her left ear. Under Grim orders, she captured and helped torture a prominent member of the Alliance; in turn, she herself was taken prisoner by the Alliance and scheduled for execution after her memory had been partially erased. A small team of Horde broke her out of the Stockade in Stormwind and helped her escape. For the remainder of the Draenor campaign, the Shadowblade spent most of her time hunting Alliance in Tanaan Jungle, promoting the conflict between The Grim and Sanctuary, and violently retaliating against anyone she perceived to have wronged a Grim. She also spent some time working on a new Plague of Undeath, and testing it on unsuspecting subjects, mostly without success.

After a spree of attacks against Sanctuary members, Syreena suffered the consequences at the hands of Cerryan, who pinned her to a wall with a sword infused with Holy Light. Burning inside and out, she was left there until Julilee and Lilliana came for her. Julilee wanted to execute her, but Liliana fought her off and returned the burned rogue to the Grim halls. Baal'themar took her to his secret cabin for Nathandiel to tend to her. Over the next several months, Nathandiel was able to mostly patch her up, with a few modifications, such as some synthetic parts and her teeth filed into jagged points.

During most of the Legion campaign, Syreena tried to steer clear of Sanctuary, spending time fighting the Legion alongside The Grim. She bought a farm near Andorhal. She employed Borrowed Time to search for an old friend, but the search was unsuccessful. She did find success, however, in attaining some long overdue vengeance on members of Eternal Aegis. She acquired the girl known as 'The Shard', killed Geodorik Deepwater, and raised a dead Dr. Symorick Tyrrell as her undead slave. An Eclipse happened during this period, and Syreena swayed back and forth between helping the "good guys" and helping Karthok, who was the prime force trying to summon Accalia. The resulting Nightmare was a frustrating scenario where Syreena questioned her own identity and that of members of The Grim and Sanctuary, leaving her confused for weeks after.
