Sylvia is a Moth Follower. She is unpredictable, manipulative, and uncivilized. As a lover, she is often adulterous. Due to her alignment with The Moth's chaos aspect, Sylvia's agenda is not clear. The detective suspects it is not clear even to Sylvia.

One may engage in a romantic relationship with Sylvia if she is spoken to and The Ecdysis Club is chosen as the subject of discussion. Temptation: Change or any of its forms (ex., Change: Leaf) is also required to do so.

Sylvia, an acquaintance

Sylvia lost her eye in the woods when she was nine years old. Every year, at Candlemas, she returns to the place she buried it. [You might be able to recruit this acquaintance as a follower.]

Sylvia, a disciple

Sylvia's favourite tactic is to smile and close her eye. It is remarkable how often her interlocutor will blurt out exactly what they are thinking.

Sylvia can be romanced at The Ecdysis Club.

My companion's breath comes short as they watch the display on the stage; not particularly when the bodies of the performers are unsheathed, but most of all when certain transformations are manifested.

- Invitation description

Sylvia yawns. She lifts her eye-patch edge to scratch an itch in the hollow beneath. 'Ripping,' she drawls.

- Followup description

Sylvia pops olives into her mouth as she watches the stage, chewing noisily. When she kisses me, she bites my upper lip hard enough to draw blood, and I can taste olives for hours. 'I'll get inside your clothes,' she says hungriy, 'all the way inside. If we fit.'

- Success description

Sylvia snips your clothes off with her scissors, and then she snips her clothes off with her scissors, and then she chooses a location for what you do next. It's not a convenient location.

- Season description


Ever After

Life is not easy with her. There are arguments. There are times when I roam the streets, seeking whichever bright window - that night - frames her and another. But she is unmercifully charming when she returns. There is always cause. We are drawn back together, again and again, and blot out the world with desire. [This might be considered a victory. But the House is no place for lovers.]
