Sylvestre Acosta is a jack of all trades, master of none from Onuba. He was sent with Naenia Ortega to assist her in her search for the criminal, Rafael Salcedo, who murdered Naenia's brother along with his own sister. Officially, Sylvestre's job was to be Naenia's manservant and help in any way she needed, and upon her safe return, he was to be paid in pelts, furs, and other supplies, and be awarded a horse. Unofficially, he was to attempt to prevent Naenia from actually killing Rafael, whose mother was a, Acosta like Sylvestre's.

While traveling with Naenia, he became fond of her in a fatherly sort of way, and to his relief, she chose to let Rafael live when they found him. Sylvestre rushed Naenia to Sapient to recover from her injuries, where they decided to remain. When Naenia became had puppies with Nivosus Moineau, Sylvestre became a sort of father-figure to her daughters, having been stuck with puppy-sitting duty often when they were young.

5.  Skills and Inventory

5.1  Abilities

Combat

  • Education and Learning: Sylvestre's skills were learned over time, with formal training in his younger years and sparring to keep up the skills.
  • Sword fighting (Journeyman): His sword of choice is a rapier, and he knows little of how to use any other blade.
  • Sylvestre would not consider himself an expert by any means. He can fight reasonably well, but he is most likely to be trying to escape or defend someone he cares about.

Horseback Riding and Horse Care

  • Education and Learning: He learned to ride and care for horses out of necessity soon after shifting because all of his family learned.
  • English Saddle (Journeyman): Sylvestre is most comfortable using an English-style saddle, although the reins he owns do not have a bit, so he steers by neck-reigning.
  • Horse Care (Apprentice): He knows the basic such as grooming and how to tack up.
  • Sylvestre can ride at any gate, but he requires a well-behaved horse. Horses that act up are a bit much for him.
  • If a horse needs more than the basic care, he will need to seek someone with more knowledge than he has.

Sewing

  • Education and Learning: Naenia's mother thought she needed to learn something lady-like instead of just fighting. Naenia chose embroidery because it did not involve carrying around a large amount of supplies. She was also surprised to learn she enjoyed the process because it gave her something to do with her hands when she felt fidgety.
  • Embroidery (Journeyman): she can create rather intricate designs, although not all the stitches are perfect. This is more a skill that is fun to her than anything.
  • Mending (Apprentice): she is not too great at patching up clothes; she can do so, but the result is generally not pretty.
  • Despite liking embroidery, if the is not turning out how she wanted it to, Naenia will get very frustrated and not work on her project for a long time.
  • Naenia is not very good at sewing overall. She cannot create clothes from scratch or even mend them very well.
