Error Message: expected primary-expression before '*' token

I’m currently coding an Adafruit fingerprint scanner to recognize a fingerprint and unlock a 12V solenoid door lock. I’m using a Arduino Uno Rev3. The coding is roughly based off of a library from GitHub and something pre-done in a YouTube video. I keep getting an error message every time I try and compile it and I can’t seem to figure it out. Any help would be appreciated. My entire code is attached. Thank you.

The message is : expected primary-expression before ‘*’ token

Here is the where there is an error

#if defined(__AVR__) || defined(ESP8266)
/**************************************************************************/
/*!
  @brief  Instantiates sensor with Software Serial

/**************************************************************************/
Adafruit_Fingerprint::Adafruit_Fingerprint(SoftwareSerial *ss, uint32_t password) {
}
thePassword = password;
theAddress = 0xFFFFFFFF;

hwSerial = NULL;
swSerial = ss;
mySerial = swSerial;
}
#endif

What’s this closing brace } doing here ?

Adafruit_Fingerprint::Adafruit_Fingerprint(SoftwareSerial *ss, uint32_t password) {
[color=red][b]}[/b][/color]
 thePassword = password;
 theAddress = 0xFFFFFFFF;
