Shyam is a heavy equipment specialist who runs a repair service and machining workshop on Naya Pradesh, a terraformed planet orbiting a star in a binary system. She’s from a clade of genetically modified humans that were designed for maneuverability and resource efficiency on microgravity spacecraft, her choice to work on-planet is considered unusual. Shyam is on the autism spectrum and has a compulsive need to fidget/stim, usually she does so with a spinner necklace. She is soft spoken but bluntly honest.
