Hycinthia Javilerre Illistim was a Handmaiden of the Argent Mirror, sister of Caylio and daughter of Lord Commander Murstyr Javilerre Illistim of the Sapphire Guard. She was accused of conspiracy to commit fratricide, regicide, and treason in 5114 Modern Era. Her role in the murder of her brother was revealed by the assassin, Neidel, who claimed she promised him he would only be exiled rather than sentenced to death. Caylio had been accidentally murdered, he claimed, when the true target was Myasara herself. Though feigning shock at first, she ultimately confessed, blaming Myasara for freely allowing "lesser races" in the city with special emphasis on Dark Elves.

Her intent had been to make her brother become Argent Mirror by inheritance as husband, so that she could mold his policy away from the corruption of recent years. Her own father disarmed her when she pulled a dagger from her dress. She did not claim her innocence in court for her own trial, where she was silenced following her outbursts, and was sentenced to death by beheading at the order of Argent Mirror Myasara. There was a riot that erupted out in the streets, which itself led to accusations of murder. Hycinthia was more or less a martyr for views held by quite a few Illistim who disagreed with recent policies of racial tolerance well in excess of cultural norms.

Hycinthia was subsequently stripped of her title as "Lady," and her name was stricken from her family records.
