He believes that life would be safer for him there - even under Senate rule. He has a university degree in technology, but has been forced to work as a garbage collector due to his family being in an internment camp. He must hide his sexuality as he is in constant in fear of the Magistrate Kruger II, who seeks out gay men to imprison them, as they are seen as degenerates to be used as experiments. In the distant past, gay men had been mysteriously genetically altered, allowing them to be mind readers and telekinetic. Kruger wishes to exploit these men to his advantage. Tam is forced to be a reluctant hero and goes on a journey that may ultimately take his life as well as the life of the man he loves.

Brogan’s adventurous nature gets him into trouble and he is arrested for being a gay man right in front of Tam, who becomes lost without his love.

What is known is her incredible ability to read minds, trick the enemies of the Sirens, keeping the location of the Sirens a secret and to sing unparalleled siren songs.
Captain Farthing the Pirate
Captain Farthing is a warrior who was originally designed as a fighting machine. He was genetically altered by Kruger I, the first Magistrate and later hunted by Kruger II. His size and stature were increased to almost twice the size of other men. The pain of enduring the endless operations caused Farthing to come to hate what he had become. He escaped his captures and was taken in by the Siren Sisters and a band of space pirates that were in league with the Sirens. Farthing became the captain of a starship and worked as part of the Lambda Infinity Omega League working with the Siren Sisters to free the oppressed gay men of the system. Despite his large and menacing look, Farthing is actually a very kind and gentle soul who only fights when it is necessary to save those who are important to him.
