One of the four main characters of RSPK. Sylvane is a water/wind hybrid who can use the mysterious seventh element: Lunar magic. She is beautiful and kind, but somewhat aloof and not very social compared to most. She feels a deep-seated compassion for Cryogen
, who is a childhood friend of hers and will eventually become her lover. Her psychic powers are very strong, and she knows the inner workings of the heart and mind. She's also very intelligent, though she doesn't put it to the same uses as her mentor and best friend Meristem
Sylvane is confused about where her Lunar powers came from; that her mother Aphros
also uses Lunar magic suggests that heredity may have something to do with it, but she is beginning to believe she may not be Larandan. The fact that her class changes give her radically new bodies seems to support this, though she's hardly the only character this happens to.
Sylvane's strongest points are her kind heart and her ability to live in harmony with the forces of nature and magic. She is strongly telepathic and a powerful magic user, and possesses a serene worldview that calms those around her. Her loving, feminine, powerful persona is exactly the thing Cryogen needs, but she worries that she will not get to him in time. She makes a brave rescue to save him from his self-made shell of ice...and from his own tormented, anguished mind.
Sylvane is probably one of the more sane characters in RSPK.
