Origin: It is unknown when Sylvis Shaw, but it's known he was actually born as Akando Riverwood and had great prowess in the dark arts. He was involved with Gerald Tyler, a sorcerer almost matching his power and the father of Dane Tyler, and worked with him in a plot to summon Lucifer. However, this is was a ploy to gain Gerald's trust so he could kill him, stopping someone from becoming more powerful than him. Since then, he's discovered the Mask of Greed and the Book of Flesh, two objects of great power.
Currently: Sylvis is being persued by Dane Tyler, who is trying to stop Sylvis from summoning a creature of great power who's name is unknown via the Mask of Greed. In defense, Sylvis has employed various other villains to stop Dane.
