Welcome to Sylum Clan


Hello!  Welcome to Sylum!

Recently we’ve had newbies and some poor souls that have stumbled onto Sylum with no idea what the crazy is all about.  I figured it was time to do a ‘Sticky Post‘ to help all those who wander into the Manor, navigate around this vast universe.

So here we go.


If you’re new here, welcome!!  You’ve just been recommended to this vast multi-story universe, and you likely have no idea where to go or what to do.

Well first off.

Fact: Vampires exists.


Welcome to Sylum Clan.

A multi-layered, character driven storyverse.

Inspiration for the first story that effectively launched this concept, was the death of Timothy ‘Speed’ Speedle from the Television Series CSI: Miami.

His implausible and much mourned demise, led to the premise that you can’t kill someone if they’re already dead.

This quite literally immortalized him, birthing the first story Kiss of Death, and the rest just kept on growing, sprawling  across more than 7,000 years of unexpected history, and on into the future.

A few things you should know, so you can’t say we didn’t warn you *grins*.  There are 3 Major Story Arcs, and hundreds of Supplemental Stories.  These stories expand across 13 Clans, 7 Kin Clans, and showcase over 1200 Characters.

We just hit our 15th Anniversary in 2020!

Sylum Inspiration: Paul Mallory


Camelot: Member


Paul’s family was originally from Poland.  His grandmother, fled with her husband and children, to England in 1936.  She talks about the regret she felt leaving behind her sister, her husband, and son, all who had perished at Auschwitz.

He was in college when he was recruited by James Bond into MI:6.  His gifts in languages, and the ability to crack any safe gave him a skill set they could use.  He rose up the ranks in MI:6 and is now a Double O Agent.

(Dilios Note: Not that I’m supposed to know that)

He became friends with Charles Evan, who at the time was a Veterinarian student, needing a place to stay.  Paul always gone, offered his back bedroom, to the student and over time the two became friends, despite the arguments over the menagerie of animals in the house.

He ended up making friends with Hannibal King, the two building an unusual friendship.

While on a Mission he was severely wounded and he still wasn’t sure if he gave consent to be Turned, but in the end he accepted his fate as one of M’s boys.

Clan Location: Camelot

Camelot Clan


I know a few people were likely wondering how Camelot Clan’s location ended up in the SouthWest of England.

Tintagel is the birthplace of Arthur Pendragon, so it was only fitting their first home was at the famous location.  Unfortunately, the area is eroding into the sea, so they had to find a new location, which how they ended up at St. Michael’s Mount.

In non Sylum world this is actually a private residence, mixed in as a Heritage Site.  So yes you can tour it, but only the gardens and older sections.  So everything we’ve described about the place is real.

Though St. Michael’s Mount is the main home, they do have other clan locations in Scotland & Ireland, especially as a few members stay in those areas full time.   They also have a variety of business and residences in London.

Sylum Advent 2021: Check In


For those participating in Advent do you want a #channel on the Discord to discuss story/art, to ask me any needed questions, or just a place to scream into the void?

Also – I have a spreadsheet that I keep track of blog posts so I know what I’m doing *hahaha*

Fixed it up for the rest of the year. 

Seeing how close Advent was made me *flail*

And if this seems like Deja vu – I have no idea what you’re talking about!

Casting Call


We’re doing a Casting Call!


We have some new characters coming, but we need to cast them!  So we’re reaching out to the clan – send in some actors/actresses that you would like to see in Sylum.

A few things before you start tossing names out:

  • They can’t be on, or added to, our OH HELL NO list.  What is the Hell no List?  It’s those actors that are homophobic, racists, sexists assholes that would lose their minds having their names associated with something like Sylum.
  • Please don’t pick overly famous names or actors that have family dynasties in Sylum.  We’re not looking for the next Meridii or McFassii – they are already good at adding their own characters in without additional help.
  • The actors need to be actors not a ‘reality stars’ there’s a reason we re-cast the Crab Fishermen.
  • We’re looking for a variety of actors/actresses:  all nationalities and variety of ages
    • Specifics we’re looking for
      • Indian Woman (30ish)
      • Eastern European Male (40ish)
      • European Male (40ish)
      • African Male (30ish)
      • 2 American Females (Both 30ish … dark hair and the other blonde/red)
      • Latin American/Mexican Male (30ish – that isn’t Pedro Pascal or Oscar Issacs)
      • 2 American Males (Early 40’s wearing glasses is a plus but not needed and 30ish close cropped hair or bald)

You can either drop the name on this post or go to the discord and drop images w/ name in the Channel – #SylumPretties

Sylum Inspiration: Michael Westen

Sylum: Member


Michael Westen’s file is labeled RED, therefore most of it is classified.

What is known about Michael is that he’s the oldest son of Frank and Madeline Westen. He has a younger brother, Nate Westen. Michael and his father did not get alone, and many times Michael took a beating or two to protect his mother and brother.

At age seventeen he left home and joined the Army. He worked his way up the ranks, and became a Ranger. It has come to light recently that he was in Somalia, and his actions during that campaign had him recruited into Delta Force.

It was while he was in training he was recruited out of Delta into the CIA.

His career has been labeled classified. But it is known that he’s worked with Army Intelligence Officer Thomas Devoe and for a while was partnered with Larry Sizemore. It had taken Michael some time, but he was able to prove that he worked better on his own.

It was a mission in Ireland that he had met Fionna Glennanne. The two had fallen for each other, but Michael’s cover had been blown and he fled Ireland. He would not see her again until he was Burned and dumped in Miami.

In Miami he was reunited with Samuel Axe someone he’s worked with for over a decade. He’s also confronted with his mother, Maddie.

Between finding those who Burned him, helping others in need, and dealing with family. Michael was ready to go back to being a spy.

‘Management’ tries to control Michael’s life by making him do jobs for them. The few times he tries to get away from them, with help from others he pulled in deeper at some points skirting that line that he’s worked so hard never to cross.

It was on one of these jobs, that he got Jesse Porter Burned.  Desperate to get Jesse re-instated, find those who Burned him, and end this game – Michael went after John Barrett.

But before that meeting was to take place Michael was taken from an arranged meeting. He was confronted by Don Jon and Larry. Tired of his life being manipulated by everyone, Michael refused their offer.

Don Turned him anyways.

Sylum Top Ten – 15th Anniversary: Bonus Question 15 (Part 3)

Bonus Question where you got to ask me questions!

The last question:

After nurturing Sylum for 15 years, what’s your vision of the future. I know the past few years has seen a lot of revamping of the original arc due to changes, but you’ve brought Dune, Star Trek, and Star Wars into the mix. There’s been several great stories for Star Wars, but only a few tidbits for Dune and Star Trek. What’s on the storyboard for them?
