Silveny, nicknamed Glitterbutt by Keefe Sencen, is one of the last four alicorns known to exist, and the second alicorn found. Sophie Foster accidentally stumbled upon Silveny in a forest, while she was tracking what she thought to be a sasquatch's thoughts in Exile. Sophie was entrusted with the task of training the alicorn, as she was the only one Silveny trusted. Later, Keefe also got her to trust him, giving Grady hope that she was warming up to people. Silveny was moved into the Sanctuary to live with the other alicorn, Greyfell. She gave birth to twin alicorn babies, Luna and Wynn, during Flashback. As of Legacy, Silveny is roaming freely with Greyfell, Luna, and Wynn.
Appearance and Personality[edit | edit source]
Silveny is a sliver alicorn with a glittery mane and tail. In Exile, Silveny’s tongue is described as purple. She has an energetic and spirited personality, often sending Sophie excited, repetitive transmissions. In the beginning, the only person that Silveny trusts is Sophie, but she later trusts Keefe as well. After befriending Keefe, he nicknames her Glitter Butt because her feces (poop) also has glitter. Silveny also likes to eat swizzlespice.
Abilities[edit | edit source]
Silveny is able to transmit thoughts to Sophie, such as "FRIEND!", "FLY!" and "BABY!", always in capital letters, likely indicating the volume of the transmission and Silveny's excitement. After Keefe befriended her, she started transmitting "KEEFE!" as well. Many nights, Silveny helped Sophie sleep by transmitting her relaxing images and soothing words. It was also discovered that Silveny was able to teleport to other places, after taking Sophie to a valley once when the Elvin Council came over to Havenfield to inspect how well Sophie was training her.
Vocabulary[edit | edit source]
Silveny transmits to Sophie using limited words and vocabulary that grows with each book.
- GLITTER BUTT
- HOLD ON
- BAD PEOPLE
- BITE THEM
- MAMA GLITTER BUTT
History[edit | edit source]
Exile[edit | edit source]
Sophie accidentally finds Silveny when she's looking for a sasquatch. Eventually Sophie light leaps Silveny and herself back to Havenfield, where she is placed in the pterodactyl enclosure until they get the Cliffside enclosure ready. When the new enclosure is ready Sophie helps convince Silveny to go to it. Later on, the Hekses scare Silveny by trying to take her away, but ends up staying at Havenfield. Silveny will not let anyone get near her except Sophie and Keefe. Sophie tries flying on Silveny, but ends up in sparkly horse manure. The Councillors arrived to see Silveny and are not impressed with the fact that Sophie is covered in glittering feces. When night comes Silveny frequently transmits words or images to Sophie. Sophie gives a flying demonstration to the Councillors (and Keefe) outside of the enclosure, accidentally resulting in being teleported somewhere else. Sophie light leaps herself and Silveny back. While Sophie is being treated for being faded, Keefe is able to get her back inside the enclosure. Silveny likes Keefe after that, and is always shouting "KEEFE! KEEFE! KEEFE!" When Sophie needs to go to the Black Swan so her abilities can be healed she and Keefe fly across the ocean on Silveny's back. After Sophie is fixed they try to leave on Silveny, but the Neverseen comes and tries to capture her, during which Silveny injures her wing. The three of them manage to teleport back to Havenfield, where they find all 12 angry Councillors because Silveny is injured. They think about exiling Grady, since he gave her permission to go, but change their minds when Sophie heals Alden. On the night of the eclipse, Sophie and Silveny are the finale. Due to Silveny’s injured wing, they were unable to fly. To successfully perform the final stunt without flight, they jump off a cliff and teleport there. In the end, Silveny flies for a short period of time, after which the Councillors escort Silveny into the Sanctuary.
Silveny makes fewer appearances in Everblaze than in Exile, as she no longer lives at Havenfield. Sophie and Keefe do visit Silveny at the Sanctuary near the beginning of Everblaze because she was having trouble living with the other alicorn, Greyfell. Sophie learns that is because the Neverseen placed a tracker in Silveny's tail while she was sleeping, making Greyfell afraid of her. Once the tracker is removed, Greyfell and Silveny begin to get along. The Neverseen have always been after Silveny because she is a symbol of hope for the Elvin world, and they only want chaos. They also want Silveny because she is a valuable bargaining chip as she resets the Timeline to Extinction.
In Neverseen, Silveny transmits to Sophie while she is with the Black Swan. During Cognate training, Fitz learns to transmit to Silveny and she starts to trust him. Later, Silveny shows images to Sophie, one of which is of Silveny and Greyfell “playing.” Sophie realizes this isn't actually playing, and really mating (subtly), and is rather disgusted. Silveny then transmits to Sophie “baby,” a word that she had never taught her, and Sophie realizes that Silveny is pregnant. Near the end of the book, Sophie decides it would be safer if Silveny and Greyfell were free, so the Neverseen couldn't find them. The Council agrees, as long as Sophie checks up on her daily. Silveny and Greyfell fly away to the wild, with Greyfell seeing his first real sky in many years.
After confronting Alvar, Ruy, Brant, and Keefe in a Neverseen hideout, Sophie, Tam, and Fitz capture Ruy and Brant. With not enough strength to carry them back to the Lost Cities by themselves, Sophie transmits to Silveny for help, who soon picks up on Sophie's stressed mood and asks if she needs help. Even though Sophie doesn’t know where she is, Silveny promises to find her and within seconds she and Greyfell had teleported to the Neverseen hideout. Silveny’s belly is noticeably bigger. The way Silveny found her so quickly makes Sophie realize that her ability to pinpoint the location of someone by their thoughts came from her alicorn-inspired DNA. Silveny asks if she can bite Ruy and Brant when Sophie tells her they are bad people. Sophie and Fitz climb onto Silveny's back with Ruy's unconscious body in tow and Silveny flies up to a high enough altitude to teleport back to Foxfire, updating Sophie on her baby. Later, when Silveny and Greyfell prepare to teleport away, Silveny picks up thoughts from Sophie's mind about Keefe. Right before she teleports away, she transmits to Sophie, "KEEFE GOOD SOON!"
While Elwin heals Keefe's wounds, Sophie steps outside the room and calls Silveny. Silveny takes a while to respond, but when she does, she is as energetic as ever. Silveny assures Sophie that she and Greyfell are safe and doing well. When Sophie tells her she should visit soon so Vika Heks or Edaline can check on the baby, Silveny refuses, only insisting that she will visit later. This is odd because Silveny is usually asking Sophie nonstop for a visit, while now she is flat-out refusing one. Before Sophie can ask any more questions, Silveny abruptly terminates their connection with the last assurance that she is busy and will talk soon. Later, Silveny allows Amy to ride on her.
In Flashback, Silveny was refusing to visit Sophie for a checkup, which nearly cost her babies their lives. Near the end of the book, Silveny transmitted to Sophie that she was in pain. It turns out that she had gone into labor early. Vika, Stina, and Edaline find out that it is because Silveny was carrying twins and her body could no longer support them. The babies were born prematurely, so with the help of Tarina, they were put into a special troll hive to fully develop. The twin alicorns were named Luna and Wynn by Sophie and Keefe.
