Background

Scylla (Classical Greek: Σκύλλα, Skylla). Various Greek myths differ in the telling of the origins of Scylla, but at their core they refer to a beautiful naiad who, because of a curse, turned into a sea monster. Traditionally, it was said that Scylla lived in one of the margins of the Messina Strait, which separates Italy from Sicily, while on the other side was Charybdis, another sea monster; consequently, it was impossible to cross the Strait without dealing with one or the other. However, the writer Ovid also tells the story of a princess named Scylla, daughter of Niso, King of Megara.

Notes from Thamyris, the Aoidos for the Information Service of the S.S.S.: "Scylla is a beauty and she knows well how to use it to manipulate you. Watch out or she will play you at her whim and you will end up no more than a puppet in her hands. If you ask about her name she will tell you that it is after some Princess of antiquity. Never mind that; she bears the name of that beauty who was turned into a sea monster. Or do you think it's a coincidence that her Devabot is called Charybdis? If one doesn’t get you, you will fall into the clutches of the other. In any case, you are done."

Scylla has the thin, fibrous build of a dancer and the lethal reputation of a cobra. No one dares to disparage her because not only is she a true warrior of the Steel Phalanx, she is also one of the best tactical Hackers of the Argyraspides, the Double-A unit of the Assault Sub-Section, making her twice the threat.

Scylla and Drakios are the seasoned NCOs of the Argyraspides, the double A unit of the Steel Phalanx. The Flamboyant warrior and the lethal hacker are usually accompanied by their Devabots Loke and Charybdis making them a double threat to any adversary.

However, Ovid also tells the story of a princess named Scylla, daughter of Niso, King of Megara. In love with the invading King of Crete, Minos, she would betray her father and city by delivering victory to her beloved and then turn into a bird to escape the wrath of her father.

With Scylla, the personality pattern combination programs of the ALEPH Aspects Forge managed to reproduce an authentic Mediterranean character, gifted with fiery and volatile passions, albeit ephemeral. Scylla will all out love and hate you, but not for long. She is Greco-Roman. She is impatient. Life for her is an opera: way too interesting to stay attached to anything or anyone. According to her, the Sphere is filled with opportunities to explore, and some come about due to others, so it is not worth wasting time. If she loves you, she will leave you soon. If she hates you, she will be done with you quickly. In neither case will it bother her to say goodbye. Blog
