Theresa Rourke is the daughter of Banshee, and inherited his gift of the ability to generate sound waves. When Theresa was born, her father was overseas on an Interpol mission. Her mother died shortly after her birth, and Theresa was taken by her uncle Tom, who cared for her as if she was his own daughter, but never revealed her existence to her true father.
Theresa spent a lot of time in boarding schools, and eventually found out about Tom`s criminal activities. For a time, she even joined him, but soon realized that it was very wrong and quit. Eventually, she was reunited with Banshee, and while the two are not especially close, they have a good relationship.
Theresa joined X-Force after she aided the team against Black Tom and the Juggernaut during the attempted bombing of the World Trade Centre. Since then, Siryn has developed her fighting skills and use of her powers to the point where she became Field Leader of X-Force during Cable`s absence.
Theresa also had a drinking problem back in high school which resurfaced during her time with X-Force. Thankfully, Warpath, who had long had a crush on Theresa, was able to help her through the ordeal.
Siryn first met Deadpool when she and her father were tracking Black Tom. Since teaming up against her uncle, she and Deadpool have kept in contact to the point where they are close friends.
In an encounter with the New Hellions, Siryn had her vocal cords slashed by Feral causing her to lose her voice as well as her powers. Taking a leave of absence from the team, Theresa was adjusting slowly to life without her powers when she was possessed by the psychic entity known as Malice.
To free her from possession, Deadpool took Siryn to the organization known as The Watchtower who not only freed her from Malice but also healed her vocal cords.
More recently, Siryn joined Professor Xavier's X-Corporation in Paris and was involved in the clash with the renegade government project known as Weapon XII.
