Sylvia Gilani

"Daughter of Ard "


Sylvia is as earnest and as honest as she can be. She smiles often and laughs more so, and loves making other people do likewise. She's also thoughtful and tries to be kind and caring. Though she isn't Muslim, she likes wearing colorful hijab and darker, comfortable clothing. She prefers to go barefoot, or only in sandals, but if shoes are a must, then practical, comfortable ones are her go-to.

General Information

Sylvia follows the Zoroastrian faith, but to say she's devout about it might be too strong a term. She remembers her morning prayers, but mostly, she concerns herself with being the best, most sincere self she can be. Given recent events, however, she's having to reassess exactly what that means, and it's proving to be a difficult nut to crack.

Having only just (inadvertently?) arrived at the Crossroads, Sylvia is still very much getting her bearings. She met some of the locals, and aside from a few startlingly tall discoveries - looking at you, Dustin Vang - she's optimistic that everything will be as interesting as Anaïs said it would be.

It's been a few months since Sylvia's arrival, and those months have certainly been eventful. Between helping to restore Camelot and King Arthur, to becoming an actual knight of the Round Table, to adventures and dangers in several foreign countries, and potentially stumbling into a surprising romantic involvement, Sylvia's been run dizzy trying to manage it all. She's excited to do it, though, and is looking forward to new projects like defeating Mordred and beginning a photography collaboration with Eduardo Gillard,

Story Hooks

  • She's an established photographer who specializes in candid street scenes.
  • Her friend and guide, the fereshteh Anaïs, seldom travels, but she does tend to know just when Sylvia is coming to visit.
  • She loves Middle Eastern and Indian food, but she has a terrible weakness for French pastries.

Legendary Deeds

  • To prepare the way for Camelot's return, Sylvia single-handedly convinced an entire village's worth of people to go on holiday on a particular day, and so they avoided deadly harm when the castle was restored.
  • After Camelot was restored, Sylvia faced down the Questing Beast alongside Julian, Donovan, Alex, and of course, Arthur Pendragon himself. While all present were valiant and brave, Sylvia, the most vulnerable of them all, drew the Beast's attention long enough to blind it with her camera flash. That act paved the way for the others to dispatch it quickly.
  • Traveled to the future in which she discovered her unborn daughter. While pleased, Sylvia was also horrified at the state of the world her daughter and the other children had to survive, and without their parents even. She helped tend their garden, and left a bag of sweets and fruit and tea behind for morale.
  • Rescued her daughter from execution at the hands of shadow giants.
  • Helped stop Mordred and cleansed the red fields of Camlann.
