(sylissa, pronunciation; sill-iss-uh)

1. A colloquial term for someone who is a slippery bugger—generally of the female persuasion—who uses any means to get her ends. A Sylissa is usually highly attractive and not above exploiting the power she has over other people because of this—be they male or female. She is highly intelligent and doesn't always bother to hide her sociopathy, believing people to be too foolish and unobservant to realise that they are being manipulated. In most cases this is a true belief, due to the fact that she is a true Master at what she does. She is very creative and not scared to play the long game. Sylissa's tend to have a darkness inside that scares even themselves upon occasion.
