Sylvia is blue with a long neck, stubby three fingered arms, & big expressive black eyes. She has a pink,yellow & black saddle & black & yellow rein wrapped around her muzzle & a big floppy tuft of bright pink/orange hair jutting upward from her head, matching the tuft of fur on the tip of her tail. While she is sometimes referred to as Wander's horse, she is actually one of a species called "Zbornak."
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
Super strength: Sylvia is very strong and enjoys having a good fight when the opportunity arises. A major part of her super strength is when Wander is taken prisoner aboard Lord Hater's Ship in "The Prisoner". When Commander Peepers finally traps Wander in a cell, Sylvia not only knocks Peepers out but she yanks the bars, the door and parts of the wall around the door clean off to free Wander from his cell and rescue him from the exploding ship. In The Little Guy, she does the same but this time from inside the cell. She could also twist the lord of illumination's arm in "the box"
Violence: Sylvia appears to be very violent, fight-loving, and short-tempered, especially during The Egg and The Fugitives.
Neck Extention: In The Egg, she makes her neck long so she can hear the egg's hatching after supposingly harming the baby inside by cracking the egg. She then brings the rest of her body to the egg. In The Bad Guy she twists her neck all over the bike in the run from the motorcycle gang to warn Wander about the explosives.
Using the bathroom every 5 months: In The Picnic, Wander reveals Sylvia's secret and accidently reveals it to the public.
Caring/Protective/Softer Side: Whenever Wander heads into trouble/danger Sylvia's protective side of her violent nature kicks in and she rushes into danger to protect/save Wander (Or the baby hatchling in The Egg) from the said threat. Most always Wander is seen giving Sylvia a hug and she returns them with a smile showing us that inspite being tough and bullish she can be gentle and caring for her best friend. In The Fugitives she comes back to save Wander from the Watchdogs after she abandons him because of his niceness foiling her escape plans. This was possibly due to sheer guilt and she tells Wander that helping her best friend was far more important then escaping the planet herself. This is her first ever act of love, loyalty and affection for Wander shown to us in the series.
A major form of her love for Wander was when she mistakely believes that Captain Tim (A dangerous Spider creature whom Wander names after finding the tags in it's mouth) devoured Wander, which was really a teddy bear, and after she sobs over his "death" she had the ship set to self destruct to avenge him before sadly departing. Still morning the loss of her best friend, she foces herself to calm down and vows to move on for Wander and will never look back but she does and she is overjoyed to discover that Wander was still alive on the about to explode ship and went back to rescue him just in time before she shared a hug with her friend, relieved that he was all right, safe and sound.
Prehensile Tail: Her tail acts as another hand as shown in the Wander Over Yonder Theme Song, where she uses her tail to hold on to Peepers and punch him and smash him on the floor, The Pet where she used her tail to grab a pipe and The Bad Guy to snatch up Wander and talk to him before they could enter Doomstone.
Superspeed and stamina: She is able to run so fast that she can cover the circumference of a planet in just a matter of seconds and never seems to get tired after she runs.
