Lore Snippets Edit

  • Tyto's legend grows with each act of heroism. As do the mysteries that surround them.
  • "I never seen anything like how she danced with that sword. Wyvern never stood a chance" - Mina, Westholme Villager
  • Before the Hierophant could thank his mysterious savior, she was gone.
  • "Don't know how he brought his airship through the storm, but no way we survive our wreck without him." - Boatswain Iggs
  • Tyto supported the Hierophant as he staggered toward the Eternal gate. Crossing the threshold together, they were engulfed in blinding light.
  • The valerian petals were a calling card and a warning: eternal slumber for the wicked.
  • Soon it was the highwaymen who feared the darkness of the road at midnight.
  • The kidnappers had a simple choice: run or fight. They chose poorly.
  • Grenn surveyed the ruined temple with fury. The Hierophant of Aurion was nowhere to be found, whisked away by some mysterious north wind.
  • The goblins cursed it and called it a demon, but the cutting blur of ice and wind still stayed their advance.
  • "He ain't for real, this bogeyman vigilante. Don't get spooked by some story." - Ramsay
  • Dressed in Aurion gold, she are called the Sunbird. She brings justice with her shining blade.
  • "Let's see how good you are with that blade, little songbird." - Lotho's last words.
  • "We would better call them the 'Starbird' since they appear most often at night." - Lady Marisse
  • Tyto the Swift was an agent of justice. Cruelty and oppression would not be allowed to stand


  • Tyto's mask is similar to an owl's face, and Fang, the pet, looks like a mouse, which is ironic since owls are one of mice's and rat's biggest predators.
    • Tyto's mask specifically resembles the faces of barn and masked owls, all of which belong to the genus Tyto.
  • Contrary to initial belief, Tyto's cape doesn't hide anything, in fact Tyto actually doesn't have a left arm. Fang, the little companion, acts as "the left arm".
    • In response to a reddit question on Tyto's missing arm, Gorrem, their character designer, said, "The original story I ran with was an elite soldier was left for dead after an intense battle. Tyto lost their arm in the process and hid in the wilderness. Desperate for food, Tyto caught fang in a trap to eat. At the last moment Tyto had a change of heart, fought their survival instincts and befriended it instead."
  • The Crimson Guise's codename used to be Swift, as in showing a very agile character.
  • Tyto gender is unknown [citation needed], being referred to with he/him, she/her, they/them, and it/it's pronouns in several lore snippets.
