Your Field Guide to Spotting Syrinx

Before Pan came after her, Syrinx looked like a beautiful young nymph. We're talking really pretty. That's what got her in trouble, though. She had to transform into a bunch of reeds to escape the clutches of the little lusty goat-god. So if you want to find Syrinx now, you've got to go to the banks of the River Ladon, where she grows as clusters of reeds near the river's edge. You won't be able to have a conversation with her, but you might just hear the sad music that comes when the wind blows through the reeds.
