Sylas, the thief


You awaken in a dark room, surrounded by corpses. Questions pile up in your mind as the dead reach into your mind with their whispers.

Who are they? Why are you there? Why are you covered in blood? 

Why—

The door opens, and two women enter. The shorter one smiles at you—a scar cuts right across her lips—and tells you that everything is going to be alright.


Not many street urchins survive long enough to become adults; Sylas is the exception to the rule, and she proudly wears the hardships she endured on her face. 

Honest to a fault, she doesn't hide her reason for sticking with you: someone is paying her handsomely to keep you out of trouble, and she could definitely use the money.  If you're not careful, she'll rope you into one of her heists—they've all been successful thus far, but her luck is bound to run out sooner or later. 

Sylas knows countless people and calls them all friends, but is not used to baring her heart.

Not yet.
