Entwined syrinx were reportedly popular wind instruments in ancient Azlant. The Pathfinder Society holds one surviving set, once owned by famed composer Skrelyn Leisson, in its collection.1


The legendarily sorrowful sounds of the entwined syrinx were mentioned in unknown, incomplete texts of ancient Azlant, which drew the attention of composer Skrelyn Leisson. He recovered an intact set from an unnamed hermit, and his performances were simultaneously enthralling and dejecting.1

According to Pathfinder Miria Sies Tays, Leisson retired a recluse, and the Pathfinder found him dead with the entwined syrinx still clutched to his lips. The instrument is now part of the Pathfinder Society's collection of magic items.1
