"He watched her in return, blinking away the distortions of the ointment. She had straight, silky black hair, bound in a knot—more of a wad, actually—on the back of her head. A few fine strands escaped to float around her face. Golden skin. Brown eyes with a hint of an epicanthic fold. Stubby, stubborn black lashes. The bridge of her nose was coolly arched. A pleasant, original face, not surgically altered to a mathematically perfect beauty, but enlivened by an alert tension. Not an empty face. Somebody interesting was in there. But not, alas, somebody familiar."

Rowan Durona, one of the younger doctors of the Durona Group, was a specialist in cryorevival surgery.

While she was living on Jackson's Whole with the group, she was sent to Escobar for training in cryorevival technique at the Beauchene Life Center; there she met Norwood of the Dendarii Free Mercenary Fleet and had a friendlly relationship with him.

Some time later, the Dendarii took part in a raid on House Bharaputra's clone crèche, led by Miles Vorkosigan. When he was killed during the raid, he was placed in a cryochamber. Norwood had the job of escorting the chamber back to the Dendarii ship, but was cut off. He did, however, have access to a commercial shipping center, so he shipped the cryochamber to Rowan, who revived Miles.

She and Miles developed a close relationship, but she would not agree to marry him or to go to Barrayar - on the first part, she stated that his hyperactivity and domineering nature would drive her crazy, and on the second part she asked why she would want to be a subject when she could be a citizen. Instead, she and her clone-family moved to Escobar and set up a medical research center there.

Over time, she became head of their Cryonics department and married an Escobaran medtech. They had at least two children.
