Cyri, as she is known to her friends, has chosen a common PvP, PvE spec for warriors, 31 Arms and 30 Fury. While she has often said she plans to respec for Protection so she can tank in higher level instances and raids, Cyri's only known use of her shield has been riding on top of it during snow-shielding vacations in the snowy resorts of Dun Morogh and Winterspring.
Cyri tends to prefer esoteric weapons such as polearms, crossbows, and fist weapons. However, her favorite all-time weapon was the classic two-handed axe, the Arcanite Reaper, made by the famous crafter Nerradnayr.
Cyrazenne Elizabeth Danna was born in a small village in Elwynn Forest before the Second War. Her exact age is unknown as the records were destroyed during the war. Cyri has declined to provide her specific age, saying that she is old enough and smart enough to not answer such a silly question.
Her younger sister is Katherine Liesel Danna, a popular school teacher in Stormwind. Kate, or Miss Danna as she is known by her students, can often be found leading a tour of her young wards around the capital city. Sadly, the two sisters became orphans at a fairly young age. Their parents, William and Rosanna Danna were accomplished mimes and were renowned for their performances throughout Azeroth. Unfortunately, early in the Second War, the Orc Shaman Ner'zhul learned of their skill and ordered their kidnapping. Valued as court entertainers, they were taken through the Dark Portal to his stronghold on Draenor and forced to perform. A few months later, the Alliance armies poured through the portal in an attempt to vanquish Ner'zhul and his minions. One night, in between performances, Cyri's parents escaped and joined up with the Alliance forces. The Dannas fought bravely in several engagements, but were tragically killed along with members of the remaining Alliance army when Draenor was ripped apart by the destructive energies of the multiple dark portals.
Cyri was rather rambunctious as a youth and began adventuring at a young age. She sought the path of the warrior and added to her fortunes by learning to enchant and gather rare herbs. Enchanting proved to be a very challenging profession and Cyri learned much about it while attending tradeshows in Booty Bay. She improved her enchanting skills almost exclusively by helping out close friends.
Cyri leveled quickly until 59, at which point she became interested in Battlegrounds. She spent many many months at 59, learning about Warsong Gulch, Arathi Basin, and Alterac Valley and dithering over whether to level to 60. She was first exposed to PvP combat during the Zerg Wars in Tarren Mill. She gained some notoriety by reaching the rank of Corporal at level 35, which she attributes to crafty use of her trusty crossbow Swiftwind. Over the years, Cyri has frequented many instances. She is reputed to have soloed Uldaman at level 51. Curiously, there is no record of her participating in higher end instances or raids. Recently, she has been seen in lower end ones including the Deadmines, Wailing Caverns, and the Stockade with a number of lower-level pink-haired gnomes.
The elder Ms. Danna is known to be very close to the Plasmotron sisters - Meregan Plasmotron and Mithralle Plasmotron. They formed a three way partnership wherein Cyri farmed equipment, cloth, and herbs; Meregan did tailoring and alchemy; and Mithralle would buy and sell for all three in the Ironforge Auction House. Splitting the profits, they reportedly made a small fortune. Mithralle turned out to be so good at the AH, she gave up adventuring to become a full time trader.
Cyri has never joined a guild. When questioned on the matter, she points to her many friends and asks what does she need a guild for. The elder Ms. Danna is often seen in the company of her good friend, the famous Night Elf hunter Yojimbo, who is also guildless. The pair apparently met early in their careers in the Stockade and have shared many notable adventures since then at places like Tarren Mill, Uldaman, Felwood, and Zul'Farrak, not to mention their exploits in Warsong Gulch, Arathi Basin, and Alterac Valley.
Cyri's private life remains a mystery. She has no known significant other or children. Cyri's official residence is in Stormwind, where she shares a flat with her younger sister Katie Danna. It is rumored that in her leisure time she is involved in a trendy role-playing game wherein players pretend to be office workers in a technologically advanced society and are valued for their skill in pressing buttons and looking busy.
