希尔瓦里(sylvari)是一个年轻而充满好奇心的种族,他们的体态类似于人类,身体却由植物构成。在激战2的游戏中,希尔瓦里是五个可选种族之一。

角色创建

创建一名希尔瓦里角色,玩家将从教程迎战噩梦中开始历险,在此剧情中,玩家角色将在苏醒前与侵蚀梦境的力量战斗。

角色创建中,玩家可以自定义外观,并回答三个问题以决定种族传记,这些问题将影响到个人史诗的进行:

  • 梦到的使命召唤内容;
  • 认为文塔里教义中最重要的项目;
  • 觉醒时间位于一天之内的哪一

生理学

Anatomy of sylvari.

希尔瓦里是杂食性的类人植物生命体,他们中的一些会生出与人类相仿的面容,却有着倾斜的眼角和尖尖的耳朵;大多数情况下,希尔瓦里会带有较为突出的植物特征,如硬木构成的骨骼、枝叶与花瓣形成的头发,以及树皮一样的肌肤。在夜间,希尔瓦里会焕发出荧光,随着呼吸的节奏一明一暗,金色的汁液而非血液流淌在他们的经脉中,当他们走动时,会溢出花粉,随风四散飘落。相较于人类,希尔瓦里的身材要纤细得多,平均而言个头也矮上一截。尽管希尔瓦里在阳光下看起来更具活力,像是从中汲取了能量,但他们依然需要进食饮水来维持生命所需。目前已证实希尔瓦里具有感知冷热的能力,圣林之地内的一位探险者曾提到她不喜欢霍布雷克的寒冷。

金色的果实结在苍白之树的枝条上,希尔瓦里由此孕育而生。很多学者猜测,希尔瓦里之所以会有人类的形态,是源于苍白之树对于罗南的印象。然而这样的观点随着玛里克——一位来自于另一棵母树的希尔瓦里——的出现,其准确性受到了严峻的挑战。如今,人们依然无法得知希尔瓦里形似人类的真相。希尔瓦里的性别早在个体成形之前便由苍白之树选定,与人类和其他种族的两性区分不同的是,他们无法通过异性结合来繁育后代。目前尚不清楚希尔瓦里是否会因年老而死去,在过去的二十多年里,岁月似乎未在他们身上留下任何痕迹,然而他们依然会因暴力、毒素以及疾病而死亡。当一名希尔瓦里受伤时,伤口会被卷须覆盖,皮肤伸展开来以包裹整块伤处,愈合之后不会留下任何疤痕,他们恢复的速度与人类相仿。希尔瓦里的皮肤中有着荧光细胞,这使得他们在夜间焕发中光彩。

在成熟降生之前,他们们以梦境的形式和苍白之树连接在一起。在梦里,成长中希尔瓦里处于沉浸在苍白之树的意识和已经诞生的希尔瓦里们的所见所闻汇聚成的湖泊之中。当一个崭新的个体来到这个世界上时,仍会保留一部分他们在梦中接触过的知识,包括基本的常识和对苍白之树的理解,以及一些细小的其他希尔瓦里们曾见过或经历过的事物的记忆碎片。诞生之后,希尔瓦里和苍白之树的连接会变得薄弱,但这种联系依然存在,甚至维系着所有的希尔瓦里,以及一定范畴内的植物。在一些罕见的情形下,来自同一个果荚的双生子相互之间会表现出超过通常水平的强烈共鸣。

即使死亡,希尔瓦里也无法被大多数上古巨龙所腐化,目前看来这种特性应得益于苍白之树的保护,欧格登·石愈者对此曾暗示称这和希尔瓦里与苍白之树的联系关系密切。唯一的例外是墨德摩斯,掌驭植物与精神的巨龙,它的力量能够将希尔瓦里直接转换为自己的爪牙。

文化

希尔瓦里通常都诚实而率真,专注且富有好奇心,容易受事物的表面特征所影响。在梦境的影响下,希尔瓦里之间的差异并不如其他种族那样悬殊,因而个人经历则成为了彰显个性的最佳追求。他们是如此的渴望学习、体验和理解。

希尔瓦里的世界观来自苍白之树的教诲,而这些又来自于罗南和文塔里的影响,从早年的培育到文塔里石碑的教义,这些思想形成了希尔瓦里的道德准。出生之后,新的希尔瓦里由年长的同胞们负责教导,来理解他们梦境中的所见所闻,并确保他们对石碑的教诲、历史和世界形成清晰的认识。

即使在梦中获得了知识的启蒙,在面对一些超出他们理解能力的特点情况时,仍然会显露出经验的缺乏。情绪变化和为人处世对他们来说是最难掌握的,因而一名希尔瓦里常常会大声宣扬一些其他种族会出于礼貌而避免的话题。对于死亡,他们也显得认识不足,仅仅被当做一些 Despite 即使 the kick start 为…提供最初推动力 of knowledge from the dream they still seem naive 缺乏经验的 as there are some matters 情况 which seem beyond their comprehension 理解力. Emotions and tact , in particular, are difficult for them to grasp, so often a sylvari will state out loud something which would normally be politely avoided by other races. Death too is not fully understood but viewed as something to be embraced and, as with many things in a sylvari's life, is viewed with a great degree of curiosity. These views serve to form an acceptance of and fascination with death that other races may find disturbing.

As they are all born from the Pale Tree they could be considered all of the same family; however, their family bond is not as strong as most families, with many sylvari considering others more like distant relatives with few exceptions, such as twins born from the same pod or those who shared dreams, though the latter may also result in lovers. Romance is practiced among the sylvari, disregarding gender between those involved. To a sylvari, love is spiritual and eternal, regardless of physical form and contact, and sexuality is simply a natural part of life. So long as it is entered into with good will and joy, the gender doesn't make a difference.

Sylvari craft their armor and weapons from organic material, such as roots, leaves or leather, and sometimes grow their armor out of their own bodies in the form of leafy padding, spines or bark.

Religion

The sylvari have an agnostic view of the Human Gods, wishing to see proof of the gods' existence and work.[1] They venerate the Ventari Tablet as their most sacred artifact and testament. The Pale Tree is also much revered, though more as a wise parent than as a deity. If the sylvari need counseling, they often travel to the heart of the mighty tree and commune with her there.

Government

The Pale Tree leads the sylvari; she manifests a spectral being in a chamber at the base of the tree to communicate with others easily and give her guidance and instructions. Various sylvari act as ambassadors to the other races and will send reports to her so that she may judge what to do. On difficult decisions, the Pale Tree will call upon the Firstborn and any sylvari who may be a specialist in the situation(s). The Firstborn, being the oldest and having the most experience of the world, act as leaders to the sylvari, being respected for their wisdom and in turn they lead the sylvari underneath the Pale Tree. Four of them in particular (one of each cycle) have taken on positions of leadership, organization, teaching, and guidance for the sylvari people.

命名

希尔瓦里的命名,以及一些地名,主要来源于凯尔特语(爱尔兰语、苏格兰盖尔语以及威尔士语)中的姓名。希尔瓦里没有姓氏,毕竟他们是来自一个共同“家庭”的兄弟姐妹。

History

1302AE,第一位希尔瓦里从苍白之树上诞生。

The origin of the sylvari is still unclear. What is known is that the Pale Tree was born of a fist-sized seed from a cave which Ronan, a human soldier, found. This cave was said to have been guarded by monstrous plant-creatures, though any details on them or the location of the tree is unknown, even to modern sylvari who have been looking for this cave since their race's birth from the Pale Tree. On returning to home, Ronan discovered his home destroyed and his family killed by the mursaat. He planted the seed on the graves of his family and swore never to fight again. Ronan formed an unlikely friendship with the centaur Ventari and together they built a refuge near the growing tree for those who sought peace and shelter.

As the Pale Tree grew, the war between the centaurs and Krytans became more brutal. Fewer listened to Ventari and the outpost grew smaller. Before he passed away in 1180 AE, Ventari carved his life lessons on a tablet which he placed at the base of the tree in the hope travelers might read it.

Over one hundred years later, golden fruit formed for the first time on the Pale Tree. In 1302 AE, these opened to reveal the Firstborn of the sylvari. The tablet at the base of the tree and the Dream of Dreams guide the sylvari, who are imprinted by the morality and ethics of Ventari and the bravery of Ronan. Two years later in 1304 AE the Secondborn began to emerge from the Pale Tree. The first of the Secondborn was Cadeyrn, who became the founder of the Nightmare Court. After the Secondborn, sylvari continued to sprout from the pale tree with an increasing rate.

In 1325 AE, the existence of a second sylvari tree was confirmed via Malyck who believes his tree lies on the western edge of a river that runs through Brisban Wildlands, which places it within either The Falls or Tangle Root of Magus Falls depending how far west along the river the tree lies. The existence of a third or more trees is unknown.
