Sayd was one of the reborn members of the Guardians of the Universe, and one of the few female members of the organization.
War of Light
Sayd's sensibilities were more in line with those of Ganthet, himself a Guardian known for his non-traditional mindset. Sayd read a forbidden chapter from the Book of Oa, which foretold a prophecy of cosmic revelations, "The Blackest Night". When the threat of the Sinestro Corps loomed over the galaxy, Sayd addressed the incident to her colleagues as a sign from "The Blackest Night". Her Guardian brethren dismissed her concerns, treating the prophecy as nothing more than a fable.
Aware that Ganthet and Sayd were in love with each other, the others banished them from the Council of Guardians for committing the ultimate crime; that of feeling. Heading to Earth, the two Guardians acquired the Power Batteries of the Green Lanterns of Earth, then dissected the weakened Parallax and trapped him in the batteries. They then explained their banishment, and when John Stewart gave knowledge of the Blackest Night, Ganthet explained of the upcoming War of Light and the seven new Lantern Corps. After departing Earth, Ganthet and Sayd headed for Odym, an idyllic planet where they decided to form their own Blue Lantern Corps, with Rings and Power Batteries fueled by the emotion of Hope. Ganthet and Sayd became the Guardians of the Blue Lantern Corps, charging themselves with the initiation of new members such as Saint Walker.
During the Blackest Night, Ganthet and Sayd helped to gather representatives from each of the seven Lantern Corps in hopes of combining their powers to defeat the Black Lantern Corps. Larfleeze, leader of the Orange Lantern Corps, refused to cooperate unless he was given his own Guardian, and Sayd offered her own freedom in exchange for his allegiance.
Following Nekron's defeat, Sayd, true to her word, became the Guardian of the Orange Lantern Corps.
The DC Universe heavily changed its continuity into the DCnU following the events of Flashpoint in 2011. This was part of an effort to make storylines more accessible to newer readers, beginning with the New 52. This new timeline combines elements from the DCU, Vertigo Universe and Wildstorm Universe while drastically changing the origins and histories of characters.
Following the death of the First Lantern, Sinestro murdered all the Guardians, except for Ganthet and the Templar Guardians. Having himself lost the love of his life, Sinestro decided to reunite Ganthet and Sayd. Sayd convinced her captor to set her free, giving him an even greater gift: the secret that Ganthet was still alive. Larfleeze reluctantly agreed. Ganthet and Sayd continued their lives in secrecy, away from the Guardians and Blue Lantern Corps.
