|~ Sylvester to Molly|
Dr. Sylvester "Sylvie" Ashling is a 15-year-old psychologist who investigates interactions between epithets and the human psyche. After overhearing Indus talking about the Arsene Amulet, he stayed in the Sweet Jazz City Museum so that he could find and study it.
His epithet, "Drowsy", lulls his targets to sleep using a cloud of pollen-like dust. From there, Sylvie can bring their dreams to life. Notably, Sylvie can also use his epithet on himself, allowing him to transform into a giant Minotaur-like being called Dr. Beefton.
