Gleipnir is probably one of the more if not the most unusual intelligent device out there, simply for the fact that it is a chain like throwing weapon with jewels on each end. The chains are made of black Rune Steel, and alloy widely used in devices in Midchilda. It can magically stretch to lengths of up to 20 metres. The jewels at each end are diamond shaped rubies that move according to Sylviaís will. She uses it as a throwing chain weapon or to bind her opponents physically, giving her more than just magical binds.
Gleipnirís storage mode is a silver chain bracelet. As Sylvia is not able to speak, Gleipnir sets up by mental activation.
Gleipnirís design is simple yet elegant, black Rune Steel chains with rubies attached to the ends. The chain floats and acts according to her will, able to rush opponents at high speeds to attack or bind them.
Born of Mid-childa, Sylvia is the child of ordinary Mid-childan civilians. Her parents wanted her to go to school, grow up, and live normally like most others despite her inability to speak since birth. But Sylvia found it all mundane and boring, and she wanted to experience an extraordinary life. A life of that is not possible by merely being a normal civilian. Against her parentsí wishes, she enlisted in one of the bureauís air force academy as a trainee with the help of a relative who happened to be a trainer at the academy. She wanted to be like those live saving bureau mages she watched on the news all the time. The academy she went to register with found her promising and accepted her application despite clear objections and lack of backing from her parents, who were actually officers in the TSAB military as well.
After the 2 year course at the academy she graduated at the age of 14 and was recruited to the air force unit 1039. There she met Jean, who would become her best friend, and Itsuki whom she would come to respect and admire despite his many flaws. Being low ranked in the air force meant she got placed in a local emergency response squad, so she didn't get any chance actual combat experience off world.
During the JS incident, she took part in the defense of the capital. Along with the rest of the air force units, they were tasked with supporting the Ground Force mages from the air-type gadget drones. She was among those who witnessed Signum taking out 50 gadget drones with a single attack.
Personality/Habits and behaviour/Hobbies:
Sylvia is shy, quiet, and is slow in opening up to people. But this by no means meant that Sylvia was weak or timid. She was brave in her own way, and is an adventurous girl. She always wished that sheto rank up higher, and eventually become an Enforcer.
Though she can communicate telepathically with others who can also do so, she still talks a lot less than most people would. However, that isnít the case with people who she had gradually warmed up to like Jean and Itsuki. Jean understands her best so gradually Jean became sort of like her spokesperson whenever Sylvia didnít feel like talking. This does not mean that she is stoic or uncommunicative; itís just that she isn't really very talkative.
Despite her shyness, she is surprisingly strong willed, stubborn, and hard to convince otherwise once she makes a decision, which is why not even her parents could stop her once she decided she wanted to be a mage.
However she is easily embarrassed, and some people canít help but tease her just to see her expressions. Itsuki shamelessly says, ďCute girl whoís shy, quiet, and who doesnít talk much. Her embarrassed expressions are an ever source of moe-ness~Ē Whatever that means, the other clerks in their unit really donít know.
What many find interesting is that even though she's shy, he barrier jacket is a rather daring one. Most attribute it to the person who designed it as being a pervert. But this did not explained Sylvia's continued use of it. Though some will venture to say that it's probably because she's trying to build up her own confidence through little things like wearing more revealing barrier jackets. Her friends question her choice of avenue to building her confidence, but the perverts on base are not complaining.
She's a music lover, though she canít play any instruments herself. She feels that music is a wonderful expression of oneís self. Likes to twirl her hair with her fingers whenever she is thinking. Another problem is she's often found dozing after lunch under a tree, a habit she picked up from Itsuki.
A long-range combat support mage whose main specialty is binding spells, Sylvia has honed her binding spells to a level where many consider as being an expert. She supplements magical binds with prison/cage spells and physical binding with Gleipnir. She can also use Gleipnir to attack by throwing the dagger-like ends of the chain towards the opponents. The chains can also bend and move according to her will, making it very flexible and can even do slight changes in direction even in mid flight.
She prefers not to be directly involved in the thick of combat and instead hangs back and provides range support.
Her barrier jacket is made up of a black shirt with white lining patterns, bright red skirt, black long socks, bright red gloves, a pair of brown leather boots, and white hooded cape. The shirt is sleeveless and the skirtís length is quite short, barely reaching her knees.
Controlled type battery spell. Sylvia conjures tennis ball sized magic spheres and controls them to attack her enemies. She can form and control up to 6 of them simultaneously, any more would tax her concentration and generally be more difficult to control.
Sylvia conjures a large magic sigil that rains hundreds of small and low-powered magic spheres to wreak havoc in a large radius. The individual spheres may be weak, but the entirety of the spell still holds considerable power. This is Sylvia's favorite and most powerful spell, and requires an aria to conjure.
Attack: A+ (total threat level), D (individual sphere power)
Radius: 50 meters
Jehra Yuuva Tritha,
Light of heaven show your glory! Rain down from heaven and smite my enemies!"
A standard bombardment spell widely taught in the air force academies in recent years.
Force field spell used to protect allies.
Radius: 3 metres
Standard barrier spell taught in academies.
Standard bureau mage shield type spell. Has great durability.
Although Sylvia is part of the air force, combat is not her forte and so she doesnít work on aerial combat. However she trains herself for evasion in the air, something she is quite good at and she always has Jean as her backup.
A spell used to read magical energies within an area.
Radius: 1 kilometre
A bind spell that captures target that moves within a certain range.
Radius: 3 metres
A spell known to many bureau officers.
very powerful bind that serves as a magical ĎgroundĎ. It can restrict a target from using their magical capabilities. It can also dispel magical effects like Transformation Magic. Due to the concentration and intricacies of the spell, it is difficult to cast it from long range.
Effect: Cancels spells in effect on the target
A bind spell that creates a set of magical rings that restricts the target.
A simple bind spell where chains appear to tie down the target. Number of chains possible depends on the level of control and power that the caster has.
A prison spell that can be used to encage opponents. The cage is quite durable and can effectively imprison less powerful opponents till it is dispelled. Of course it isnít that effective on stronger opponents who can overpower the cage with their magic.
Targets: 1-3 people
