Sylas chathead.png

Sylas is a rather peculiar item collector found in Taverley. He is just south of the house portal in Taverley. He starts the members' quest Grim Tales. Sylas often repeats what he says in a way that he is reassuring or talking to himself. He seems quite strange and not aware of the world around him.

When the player talks to him, he claims to have beans that are apparently "magical". The player is not impressed and asks what they do and how much they are. Sylas explains how they must be planted in the ground and watered but he will not accept coins for the beans, instead he wants a griffin feather and a helmet from a Dwarf named Rupert.

Some items in his collection include the second eye of a mutant two-eyed Cyclops and a hornless Unicorn. He is certain his finds are one of a kind. However, it is possible that the items mentioned above were actually from a regular Giant and a regular horse respectively (a joke by Jagex referencing the non-existence of horses in RuneScape and the common desire from players for them).

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Sylas may be a spin off from the famous fairytale of Jack and the Beanstalk, hence the magical beans.
  • The phrase "Can't talk! Things to collect, magic beans to plant!" may be a reference to the rabbit from Alice in Wonderland.
