Sylvando (シルビア, Shirubia) is a character from Dragon Quest XI. He is a traveling performer, known by the moniker "the Great Sylvando", who puts his flamboyant talents to use in combat with a variety of colorful techniques, and is capable of equipping whips, knives, and one-handed swords, and can even dual wield both knives and swords.

Appearance and Personality[edit]

Sylvando has black, shoulder length hair which is slicked back, long sideburns, thin eyebrows, grey eyes, and small silver studs on both ears. Sylvando wears a black and white striped jester's tunic over a red, long-sleeved shirt along with tan tights, purple shoes, and a leather belt worn around the waist. He also carries a long flute.

Sylvando's dream is to build a theater of his own and make people all around the world smile. He is described as the mood maker of the party and refers to the hero and others as "darling". Despite his outward appearance as a performer, Sylvando appears to know quite a bit about knighthood and chivalry. His past is shrouded in mystery and when asked, Sylvando tends to avoid the subject.

Trivia[edit]

  • In the Japanese version of the game, Sylvando refers to himself using the pronoun "atashi" (あたし), which is typically only used by women but it can be used by feminine men. This trait is shared by feminine male characters in various pieces of Japanese media, including various anime, manga, and video games.
