"Astronomy compels the soul to look upward, and leads us from this world to another." - Plato
Young and slim, with green-hazel eyes and long hair that changes colour every 3-6 months (Currently, it's been purple for about a month).
She usually wears simple, comfortable clothes and sturdy boots, and in the warmer months you may get a glimpse of her tattoos. They're generally small and colourful, with delicate lines and space/time themes.
As the spell begins, a gentle ticking starts, building louder and louder, levels of ticking building over the top of each other to a cacophonous point when the spell casts and her eyes become a luminous pale green, the ticking replaced by five long and resonant rings of an unseen clock bell.
Sybella is calm, level-headed and optimistic, usually found with her nose stuck in a book, and likes to make people feel like they are safe with her. When she does something she puts in 100%, and likes spontaneous adventures- she and Thrills have gone on many a sunrise road trip to find a good wave.
