Conoy was a Nomai scientist who worked in the Southern Observatory, along with Spire. He was born on Brittle Hollow long after the Vessel's crash on Dark Bramble, with his grandmother being one of the survivors.
Always having held a great interested in the Eye of the Universe, he started working in the Southern Observatory to find the Eye. At some point he visited Ramie and Pye at the High Energy Lab to see the new technology they were working on. He asked them if it was possible to create a 22-minute negative interval.
Some time after returning to the Southern Observatory, he wondered what the Nomai had learned in their search for the Eye of the universe and what should change. He pointed out to Mallow and Cassava how launching a probe to find the Eye could work with the technology being developed at the High Energy Lab. This eventually led to the construction of the Ash Twin Project.
Conoy helped lift the Orbital Probe Cannon's components into orbit together with Cassava and Daz when one of the components sank down beneath the current. He and Spire made a model of the cyclones of Giant's Deep and figured out there are two different types of cyclone.
He likely died somewhere in the Hanging City, as there are no skeletons in the Southern Observatory itself.

- PLUME: The southern glacier on Brittle Hollow has ample available space. I could construct a new building to house this proposed locator. FILIX: Yes, let’s build there! I imagine our young friend Conoy would enjoy that immensely. He’s always held a great interest in the Eye, especially for a child born so long after the crash.
- CONOY: Perhaps we could still repair it. My grandmother told me there was little time to assess the nature or extent of the damage.
- CONOY: I became lost on Ember Twin (my gratitude that Ramie found me!), but the High Energy Lab is the building with the large solar panels. I’m suprised(sic) I didn’t see it!
- RAMIE: The Southern Observatory is asking if creating a 22 minute interval is possible (that is, to have something arrive 22 minutes before it is actually sent through the warp).
- CONOY: What have we learned thus far in our search for the Eye of the universe? CONOY: How should our methods change as we continue our search for the Eye of the universe?
- CASSAVA: Mallow’s idea is clever, but we have no idea where the Eye is in relation to here. The probability of launching a probe in the correct direction would be absurdly small. CONOY: I believe I have a solution for that problem! Have you spoken with Ramie and Pye about the technology they’re developing?
- CASSAVA: Conoy, Daz and I were lifting Orbital Probe Cannon components into orbit for assembly, and one somehow sank down down(sic) beneath the current.
- CONOY: Cassava’s Construction Yard has been using the cyclones on Giant’s Deep to lift Orbital Probe Cannon parts into orbit, but one component was pushed down past the current that usually prevents anything from sinking. CONOY: Spire and I are crafting a model to determine why this happened. SPIRE: An update: It’s now clear there are two different types of cyclone.
