Sypha is a priestess
and witch who uses elemental magic in battle, Sypha hid her gender in order to
become a vampire hunter. She attempted to confront and destroy Dracula,
but was defeated by his minion, the Cyclops, and imprisoned in stone. She was
freed when Trevor Belmont killed the Cyclops,
and aided Trevor in his battle against Dracula. After Dracula's death she and
Trevor married, adding her magical aptitude to the Belmont bloodline.
Sypha's Castlevania: Judgment storyline is as follows: One day while
she was working alone, she was approached by an unfamiliar man, Aeon,
who explained to her that she had entered a time rift, a place where she could
touch her desires. She was grateful for the opportunity to achieve her goal of
punishing the dark beings who were responsible for so many of her losses.
Along the way, she fought many beings from different time periods who were
tainted with darkness. However, she failed to recognize that some of these
individuals had no evil intentions. Among these were Alucard,
and Shanoa. Wary of deceit, she
ignored their claims of good intentions and struck them down without mercy.
She recognized her final opponent as Carmilla, who
she remembered as being one of the ones directly responsible for starting the
trials. Carmilla chided her for wearing priestly robes and cooperating with
the Church and helping mankind despite continued persecution of her people.
She defeated the vampire and declared to her lost sisters that she had
punished one of the ones who began their persecution. After she returned from
the rift she continued her work as a church hunter, and eventually disguised
herself as a male in order to investigate disturbances in Wallachia, where she
would eventually meet up with Trevor, Grant, and Alucard.
