Here’s another surprise since Nadia Sylvan doesn’t have as many scenes as her more active brethren. She does have her moments in War of Nytefall: Lost, but she doesn’t stray far from Nyte that often. Part of the reason is because she has left her warrior past behind and finds that she prefers to be a noble. A big part of that is falling in love with Xavier Tempest, who is equally dedicated to her. Honestly, Nadia and Xavier are probably the most stable couple I’ve ever written.
This might not be as long a post as I would like because she is a woman of mystery and simplicity. Well, she does like to manipulate others and plays complicated games, but she keeps her own life easy to handle. She loves and supports her husband. She is very close to the ritualist Stephanie Talon without making her more friend than agent. Her bodyguard is Lou the vampiric ogre. Nadia is the brood sister of Clyde and the ‘daughter’ of Gregorio Roman, which makes her one of the old gnome’s favorites. She doesn’t really like Mab, but both tolerates and respects her due to her skills. That’s most of what anyone knows about Nadia Sylvan.
I almost forgot to mention that Nadia is not a human vampire. She is actually a female orc, which isn’t what people think when it comes to Windemere. While the males of the species are very strong brutes, the women are considered some of the most gorgeous creatures among mortals. They are tall, strong, and beautiful that can best be described as ‘Valkyrie-like’. This means that the only characters who are taller than Nadia are Lou (ogre) and Titus (big human), which makes her an interesting pairing for Xavier. Even with her orcish strength, she is more inclined to fight with magic like her golems and the ability to transform into swarms. She prefers to turn into moths, but will use this crude power to become more vicious creatures like scorpions, rats, and mosquitoes.
There isn’t much else that I can say about Nadia Sylvan. I have yet to give her a big time to shine and I don’t know if she’s the type. She seems very comfortable sitting in the shadows and letting others jump into the fray. Still, I’m sure some people have questions for the Lady of Nyte.
