Story

Backstory

Sylk was born Silas, son of Jeremiah Derain, although he wasn't afforded a great opportunity to know his father. Jeremiah had had his children spirited away to prevent the possibility they may come to covet his throne. Silas went on to adopt the name Crosse denoting the fact he did not know his last name. He participated in the Darkstress Wars, becoming known as LePeche.

Sylk was later inducted as one of the Council's Emissaries sent to Anvar to secure the Tartarus Gate. He took the name Nix, but was not dedicated to the cause.

Personality

Sylk is a sordid egotistical bastard seeking immortality. He is an absentee father at best and a sociopath at worst.

Appearance

Sylk has somehow retained his youthful appearance even after twenty years on Anvar. He has long grey-white hair and green eyes.

Relationships

Genealogy

Jeremia Derain
Sylk's relationship with his father is strained to the point of non-existence.

Trivia

Silas from Latin means "woods" and Kepler is German for "hatter". Nix is from Latin and means "cease."

Creation

Sylk is an anagram derived of the English name Kyle (from Gaelic caol "narrow, strait") replacing the e with an s. Originally, the anagram was "Kyle X" resulting in the form Xelyk.
