Sylja is one of the Shinobi in Nightfall. She is the sister of Hades and Cristyle. Not much is known about her, except that she is partly responsible for what happened to Hades. She is mute and seems to have powers related to dreams. Her goals are not clear though she seems to be rather peaceful.


Sylja is the second Shinobi we meet in Nightfall, after her brother Hades. She is first seen inside of a dream of Vriska. It later becomes clear that Vriska's dreams and Sylja are connected.

Personality and TraitsEdit

In a livestream when asked about queer Shinobi, Neon confirmed that Sylja is a lesbian.



  • Sylja doesn't talk and uses emoticons in conversations instead.
  • When she was first introduced, some people called her Link, because of her green clothes and swords.
  • She originally had the personality of Cristyle, while Cristyle was the cool and collected leader. Neon switched it at the last second.
  • Sylja's design is loosely based off of Toph's from Avatar: The Last Airbender.
  • Her name comes from "Silja" meaning blind although she is mute and not blind.
