Sylum Character Adoption

Drawing Oak Alley


First there was the Yahoo Group.

Then there was an idea.

And from all of the crazy that the list brought us was the idea/ability to adopt a Sylum Character.

We’re transferring this idea to the Blog – so you can claim/adopt a character and use it when you post your comments.

Note: This doesn’t mean you get to write anything on said character.  Have any say on said character.  Tell us how we should write said character.  Own said character.

It’s just a fun thing that we would like to transfer over from the list to the blog.

So if you’re interested.

Reply to this Page with at minimum three choices … don’t be shocked if a character you want is already taken or unavailable.  There are characters that will not be available – due to past histories and dealings.  It’s not personal but well at one point in time someone made it personal – so characters got removed from availability list.

Please read through the comments to see if a) a character you want has been claimed b) a character you want was requested but the response was they were unavailable  – this way make it easier for you to figure who you want to ask for.

You can always ask who is available in a certain clan… or in theory who isn’t…

Gives us some time to reply.

Once you have adopted a characters – make sure to feed and water properly … and when you reply to a blog post you can use your adopted character name instead of your own.


UPDATE: If you had a character on the list – you get to the keep the character here.  Just stop by state you still want them so I’ll know who not to give away.  It’s been a while and I don’t remember who has who.

    Forgive the stupidness of my question. I’m trying to figure out if carbon fibre drop spindles are actually feesable.

    If we adopted a character on the list we still have it right? Or do I need to battle to keep Rodney?

  2. I’d also like an answer to that question. Would really hate to lose, Andrew Dufresne, the character I adopted though I doubt there would be too much demand for Border’s Clan Archivist/ Librarian.

  3. Zoe Michele says:

    Yeah thats my question too. I had DonEppes. DoI still have him or do i need to chose him again along with other choices/

  4. scarletdeath says:

    I would like to adopt either Johnathon Francis D’Artagnan, Dean Winchester or Harvey Specter please!

  5. merthyl says:

    From Lealta Kin Clan, who is free??

  6. I would like Zoe Carter (don’t know if she has/will shown up yet), Isabella Olivetti, or Jack Frost.

  7. sevencorvus says:

    I’d like to hold onto Willow if I may. 🙂

  8. Helen Picken says:

    Any chance on Laelius? (I have been a lurking lurker who lurks for far too long – I got pushed “upstairs” by the charity I volunteer for so it’s been a bit busy but my day job has eased off a bit since I took (and passed – yay for computer marked multi-choice exams!) my exam this morning! :-D)

    • Nicolaus Meridius says:

      I promised him to you a while ago… Take good care of him.

      • Helen Picken says:

        I promise!

        I’m finally getting around to catching up on Evolution! I waited for it and when you posted it I was stuck working :-S Curse the fact that I need money to fund my internet usage!

  9. Hope B. says:

    Okay, hopefully one of my choices is available…

    Saigo Takamori
    Penelope Garcia or maybe…
    Ezio Auditore da Firenza

    • Nicolaus Meridius says:

      Saigo and Ezio are not available

      But you can have Penelope Garcia – please reply confirming you’ll adopt her 😀

      • Hope B. says:

        I’ll be more than happy to adopt the computer goddess! Too bad I can’t be a super sneaky assassin, but you can always assassinate someone’s identity with super sneaky ninja computer skills!

  10. tuckercat2 says:

    Sorry, three choices:
    Dean Winchester

    I’d love Jack Sparrow but figure he is gone….

  11. John Ringo says:

  18. Kathy says:

    The 3 I’m interested in are:

    Lucy Pace

    • Nicolaus Meridius says:

      I would prefer not Lara – even if you hear back from her…

      Gretel and Lucy are available – so which of those two would you like. Now reminder Gretel isn’t from the Hansel & Gretel movie – it’s a different character.

    • Nicolaus Meridius says:

      I can’t remember who you had. So you would need to figure out a few options. Best option check wiki blog pick a clan and go through the members and pick a few.

  49. Laelius says:

    Hoping I’m still ok with Laelius – I’ve finally got to the point I feel like poking my head above the parapet again…

  57. Chera says:

    Alrighty lets see if I can adopt a character. First choice would be Desmond Miles,second would be Sherlock Holmes, third would be Paul Avery. Are any of these available?

  58. William Brandt says:

    Hello! I wanted to see if there was anyway that I could make sure I could keep my character in the event I’m unable to make it to the computer if you put up one of the reply to reclaim posts? I know it most likely won’t be an issue but I just joined the Navy (but I won’t be shipping until February) and I am not sure if I’ll be able to meet the posting guidelines to keep my character so I just wanted to see if there was anything special I should do to ensure I get to keep him. Thanks in advance!

    • Nicolaus Meridius says:

      Congrats on joining the Navy!!! Goodluck and safe journeys! And no worries you can safely keep Brandt as we know where your at 🙂 do drop us a line when you can just to make sure you’re alright 🙂

      • William Brandt says:

        Thank you! I’m super excited about it. 😀 Awesome. I’ll make sure to let you know when I can. Thanks again because I love being Brandt so much even if I don’t reply to posts very often.

      • William Brandt says:

        Hello! I just wanted to let you know that I will be going in for training on Tuesday and so I will be without Internet for at least the next two months. I will once again be active (or as active as I ever am) after that time. Thank you in advance! 🙂

        • Nicolaus Meridius says:

          Goodluck!! Will add prayers to St Michael for your safety and good health!

          Let us know know how everything went once basic is over!!

  59. Amy Hall says:

    I had Calleigh Duquesne. If i could still have her i’d love that.

  60. Bobbie says:

    I was Kyra around 4 years ago. Is she still mine?

    • Nicolaus Meridius says:
