Sylph is a girl of average height with medium-length white hair and white eyes. She has a youthful face and is often smiling.
Sylph wears tight-fitting combat armor to prevent light attacks from causing her, for when she is not using her aura. The armor is colored white with accents of light gray.
Sylph has been described as 'stubborn' and a 'maverick'. She's friendly, and faithful to her friends, but she is well known for her ability to hold a grudge against someone that she feels has slighted her.
She doesn't like being told what to do, and dislikes authority figures. She thinks everyone, especially her, should be able to decide what they want to do with their life.
Sylph grew up in a city with her father. She doesn't remember her mother; her father said that she abandoned them when Sylph as two. Her father worked as an airship pilot, and Sylph often amused herself by reading through his pilot manuals.
On her eleventh birthday, her father surprised her: he had saved up enough money to send her to a combat school called Lodestar. She didn't really want to learn to fight, but her father told her that with pay cuts, he wouldn't be able to support her at home anymore.
And so, she went. On the airship there, she met another intiate named Gan Omel. Despite coming from a completely different background, Gan could connect with her. The two became friends, and eventually teamed up with two other initiates named Silas and Undine.
Weapons and Abilities
Sylph specializes in an acrobatic form of combat, using speed and agility to defeat opponents stronger than herself. Her weakest asset is her lack of brute strength - she's not very strong, especially compared to most people who have gone through training at a combat school. She is the physically weakest of The Four Elements.
Attached to her combat armor is a wrist-mounter dart shooter for silent takedowns, and on the underside of each wrist she has retractable knives for if she has to kill.
She is an expert at determining the path of an enemy's attack and dodging it, using her great agility to her advantage. She often dodges and attacks in the same movement, as when the enemy attacks, they often leave themselves open for counterattack.
Sylph is also an adept pilot, courtesy of both reading all of the manuals she could as a child, and undertaking specialized training at Lodestar.
- Sylph is the name of the archetypal spirit of the classical element of Air.
