Biography

Silva is a doctor who, following the razing of Lordlake by Arshtat's Sun Rune, forsook her medical licence to violate orders and traveled to the withered city to treat its many patients. Possessed with a sober, severe personality, she also had a kind heart and true empathy for her patients which earned her great trust from the people she helped.

In her youth, she had studied medicine alongside Murad under a great doctor who instilled in both of them strict humanitarian principles which would influence her choices later in life. She traveled a lot when she was younger, never staying in one clinic for long. She volunteered to be an army doctor and saved lots of wounded troops on the battlefield, eventually meeting Galleon. The two were married but quickly divorced, their personalities just clashing too much to make their relationship viable.

After the destruction of Lordlake, she harboured a great deal of bitterness towards the royal family and treated the Prince and his comrades harshly when they were sent to the town by Arshtat for an inspection. Silva was not receptive to their platitudes, ordering them to get out of her infirmary.

Later, during the Sun Rune War, once the Prince helped the town recover, Silva accepted that the Prince was different from the other royals, and his mother, and agreed to serve as a doctor in the Imperial City Recapture Army now that Lordlake could recover and supplies and treatment brought to the town easily. It is said that her talents as a battlefield medic saved many lives and contributed greatly to the Recapture Army's eventually victory in the war.

Following the war, Silva would turn down an invitation to become the Sun Palace's court physician and instead reopened her clinic in Lordlake. There, she continues to dedicate herself to her work as a doctor of the people.
