Scholar Adoptable (SOLD) by TheVenomStain Scholar Adoptable (SOLD) by TheVenomStain
Name: Sylus (Last name unknown)
Age/Birth Date: Unknown/February 4
Basic Description: Supporting antagonist
Past Summary: As with Jareth, not much is known about Sylus if anything, less is certain about him. However, it has been confirmed that he, like Jareth, is a hunter of artifacts, though he is less hesitant to do nasty things to get what he wants, and considers the shopkeeper his rival. They have been known to battle it out over treasures whenever they meet, clashing with great force as neither ever wants to concede defeat. He isn't above killing or using dark arts to accomplish his goals, which Jareth has often cursed him for. Unlike the shopkeeper, however, he has yet to even partially retire, still looking for anything he can find with any value. It is rumored he hunts the Mirrors.
Weapon/Fighting Style: Sylus is a magic user like Jareth, but also utilizes a sword and vast amounts of knowledge he has garnered over his career, his pastime when not treasure hunting being reading anything he can get his hands on, which is rumored to be how he and Jareth met.
Special Abilities: Air is Sylus' favorite element to use, though he also resorts to shadows when he can, though his mastery is lacking, much to his irritation.
Appearance: Tall and thin like Jareth, Sylus has a bit more muscle to him despite his scholarly habits. His eyes are a plain grey, his hair white with tinges of silver, the longest strands of which are tied together in a messy pony tail that barely reaches his shoulder blades. His glasses are a coal grey.
He prefers nicer clothes, wearing ties, long coats, and tall boots with button up shirts.
Personality: More of a loner, Sylus isn't above getting close to someone to use them for his own personal gain. Jareth resents him for it, having fallen prey to it back when they were still friends. He is quick and cunning in his thoughts, but sometimes underestimates his enemies due to an overly large ego. He seems to have a bit of a penchant for enjoying people's pain, especially when they are someone that he considers to be in his way. But when he isn't fighting for treasures, he is often melancholy and brooding, though he will never admit to being lonely.
Relationships: He has never taken on an apprentice, though he used to be quite close to Jareth before their falling out and subsequent rivalry. Other than that, he has kept up a front with anyone he hires, never hesitant to kill or drop them when he believes it necessary or advantageous. It would seem that part of him still longs for some kind of real contact, and he enjoys his spars and spats with Jareth immensely. But besides his minions and rival, he really is quite alone.
