Avens was a Nomai traveler from the crash on Brittle Hollow and brother of Daz and spouse of Mallow. They worked on the Orbital Probe Cannon from the Construction Yard on Giant's deep. It is said from Yarrow that Avens overloaded the cannon. They assert that the Eye of the Universe no longer is transmitting its signal.
His remains are most likely with Mallow's at the Construction Yard, Mallow leaving the Orbital Probe Cannon after the failure of the Ash Twin Project.
