Sylva Via Fleuret is a character in the feature film Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV. Twelve years before the events of Final Fantasy XV, she was the reigning queen of Tenebrae, and the mother of Lunafreya and Ravus. She was an Oracle. The Almanac entry for Fociaugh Hollow in the Windows and Royal Editions of Final Fantasy XV reveals her full name and tells the story of how she once sealed the grotto in Duscae.
Profile[edit | edit source]
Sylva had blonde hair and blue eyes. She wore a clear crystal crown with tall spikes and a crystal chain, and an elaborate gold and blue dress. Her regalia resembled sylleblossoms, blue flowers associated with Tenebrae and its royal family.
Story[edit | edit source]
Sylva was the queen of Tenebrae and had two children, the older Ravus and the younger Lunafreya. After a string of incidents involving a speaking serpent kidnapping children, residents of Duscae in Lucis called upon the aid of the Oracle, Sylva, who lured the snake-like daemon into the Fociaugh Hollow and trapped it inside.
On M.E. 744, King Regis from the kingdom of Lucis arrived in Tenebrae with his eight-year-old son Noctis Lucis Caelum for the latter to recuperate from an injury sustained from a daemon attack. During their stay, Niflheim attacked the Fenestala Manor where the royal family lived to kill Regis and Noctis, and General Glauca murdered Sylva in front of her children. Regis escaped with Noctis despite Ravus pleading him for help. The incident was covered up and the queen was reported to have perished in an accidental fire.
Witnessing Sylva's death and Regis's supposed abandonment of them made Ravus resent Lucis and their royal line. Tenebrae was annexed into Niflheim and Lunafreya assumed the position of Oracle.

Sylva is voiced by Wendee Lee in the English version.
