Cylnthia Kythnis is an Ardenai Elf Paladin, who considers Ta'Ardenai and House Sylvanfair home; she is half Ardenai, one quarter Vaalorian, and one quarter Nalfein.

She is a member of House Sylvanfair, as well as being a Seer of the Order of the Sphere and Scythe, and member of the Ilyan Syndicate.

Cylnthia is also a crafter who specializes in knitting and fletching, and also dabbles in origami.

Cylnthia started her adventuring career as a bard, but shortly there-after left the barding world to be a warrior. She was later called by Kuon to be one of his paladins on Lornon's Eve of 5107. She was convinced to return to Imaera's fold during the Ebon Gate festivities on Caligos Isle in Jastatos of 5121.

Cylnthia currently splits residency between Ta'Illistim and River's Rest. She enjoys providing paladin services, including providing spells from the Minor Spiritual or Paladin circles, rescuing people from places she can easily reach, or forage for things.

Cylnthia visited her trainer for the one-hundreth, and final, time, on Jastatos 2, 5118.

As of Imaerasta of 5119, Cylnthia has one daughter.

In Imaerasta of 5120, Cylnthia made good on a family vow when she finally married her long betrothed, Ciath; in Lumnae of 5122, they hosted a vow renewal shindig.

Cylnthia's current favorite pasttimes includes hunting bandits, knitting, and sailing the open seas on her brigantine, the Somewhat Unsinkable.

Personal Crest

A round patch of deep forest brown, encompassed by a ring of gold. A fiery crimson wyvern curls protectively around a brilliant emerald oak leaf, sitting above a pair of crossed silver falchions.  To the left sits a spray of wood violet, nightshade, and wolfsbane, while on the right a bloom of dragonstalk lies overshadowing an onyx rose.


You see Lady Cylnthia Kythnis Ardenai the Inquisitor of Imaera.
She appears to be an Elf.
She is tall in stature. She appears to be advanced in years. She has twinkling, gold-flecked forest green eyes and sun-kissed, unblemished skin. She has long, wavy cherry red hair flowing past her waist and ending in tightly-coiled ringlets. Her long, graceful ears are partially hidden by wayward strands of her hair.
She has a golden leaf tattoo on her neck, and some warmly inked harvest-hued vines on her leg.
She is wearing a flowing black Ardenai silk cloak, a rustic woolen ruhan, a leather swordbelt, a pair of cotton pants, and some leather boots.

Significant Items

a rustic woolen ruhan
Fashioned from a single, long length of woodland camouflaged wool, this garment drapes to the knees. A head-sized opening in the center is enveloped with leaf-patterned dark forest green silk, while the wool's edges are hemmed with exquisitely thin threads of rolaren. A small, round patch of deep golden suede sits just below the rear neckline, and is stitched with a a pair of crossed silver falchions beneath a crimson wyvern curled protectively around a an emerald oak leaf.

a faded leather herbal
Exquisitely thin rolaren strands are stitched along the border of a strip of faded forest green leather, binding the many pages of this herbal together. Seemingly growing from the rolaren on the border, threads of green and brown are sewn in, wandering across the leather, meandering like vines across a forest floor. On the the front cover is a small patch of golden suede, with a crimson wyvern curled protectively around an emerald oak leaf, both sitting above a pair of crossed silver falchions.

a kitten-faced bright pink knitting bowl with painted whiskers
Inside the knitting bowl you see: a jet-speckled strawberry pincushion with multiple awls sticking out of it, a pair of gleaming silver knitting needles, and many skeins of yarn.
