Doctor Cynthia Bennett is a biomedical researcher and ex-wife of Wade Tillman.
Cynthia Bennett was married to Wade Tillman, whom she would remain with in marriage for seven years before divorcing him. This was due to him not fully overcoming his anxiety and trauma regarding the giant squid attack in New York City. Despite their divorce, Bennett maintained a civil relationship with Tillman. Tillman still receives her mail, and would often come by to deliver it to her. She continued to work as a biomedical researcher at Forever Pet.
In 2019, Bennett was visited by Tillman at her place of work. He gives some mail to her that has come to his house, and shows her the bottle of pills given to him by Angela Abar. She reveals the pills as Nostalgia, illegal pills that let one experience past memories vividly. She explains that the pills were outlawed because putting memories in pill form cause psychosis. She asks why Tillman isn't with another woman, saying she spent seven years trying to convince him she was not gonna take his clothes and run off with him, as he leaves saying, "Seven years of bad luck."
