Syl is feared and hated by her subjects. Most worry that her paranoia may lead her to act rashly and kill or torture them. Many of them want her dead because of her ongoing relationship with Thadon.
After restarting Xedilian, Lord Sheogorath will ask that the Hero learn more about both Thadon's court of Mania and Syl's court of Dementia. She will ask the Hero look into the current threat on her life. She will assign Herdir to help and allow them to proceed as they see fit.
After relighting The Cold Flame of Agnon, Sheogorath will ask his champion to replace either the Duke of Mania or the Duchess of Dementia. If the Champion decides to replace Syl, they will need to follow tradition and assassinate Syl and take her heart. It should be noted that once the Hero finds Syl she will attack on sight wielding her hammer Nerveshatter.
If Thadon is picked to be replaced, Syl will become outraged to see Thadon killed and will join the Forces of Order.
If Syl was not killed and replaced as Duchess, she will be found leading the Forces of Order underneath the throne room in the fountainhead. She will need to be killed to stop Order from overtaking.

|Inside New Sheoth Palace:
"I see you there. What?"
If refused to help:
"I trust you have reconsidered your position. Are you now ready to help me?"
If approached after being named Grand Inquisitor:
"What do you want?"
"I'm watching you."
After confronting Muurine:
"What news do you have to report, Inquisitor? Have you found who is responsible?"
If approached again:
"We shall speak when we've reached the chamber."
After Muurine's death:
"You see now what happens when those who oppose me fail, which they always do. I am pleased with your work, Inquisitor. As a token of my appreciation, I shall spare your life, and make you a Courtier of Dementia. In addition, accept this bow. May your enemies fear you and never know from where or with what enchantment you shall strike."

|Inside The Fountainhead:
"Why did you come here? Why do you still do the bidding of that prattling fool? When I swore allegiance to Jyggalag, my eyes were opened. I saw who my true enemies were for the first time. Order's time has come. The Greymarch is upon you."
"I hoped you would come. Now you shall pay for my brother's death."
Penalty of MuurineEdit
"You've confessed to attempting to kill me, I understand. The penalty for this treachery is death, and is to be carried out immediately."
- Duke of Mania
Syl: "Wait! I must speak! The Ritual must not be completed!"
Sheogorath: "Syl! You dare interrupt Me? Only I interrupt Me. Like just then. I'm speaking with someone. We'll talk later. Or not. When is later, exactly? Not now, I'm sure of that. Guards, I think Syl forgot how to use the door. Kindly show her out. Before I forget myself."
Syl: "Thadon... dead? You've done this. It was you all along!"
Sheogorath: "Hold your tongue, little Duchess, or I'll tear it from your mouth."
Syl: "Replacing Thadon with this... outsider? This is how it ends. I should have seen this coming."
Sheogorath: "Calm yourself, Syl. You're making my teeth itch. You still hold your office. I suggest you see to your duties."
Syl: "No! I see what's going on. I should have seen it before. You conspire to destroy us all! You're a fool if you think I'll allow this to happen."
Sheogorath: "Fool? Visionary! Change is in the air, Syl. Breathe it deep! Bathe in its scent! Bottle it up. Save some for later."
Syl: "Order stands at our door. They've taken the Fringe! Did you even know? Do you care? And you speak of "change"?"
Sheogorath: "Change will preserve us! It is the lifeblood of the Isles. It will move mountains! It will mount movements!"
Syl: "No. I can't do this. There has to be a way out. A way to escape."
Sheogorath: "Then go, Syl. Return to your quarters. Before I send you back in pieces."
Syl: "Yes! That's what I'll do. I'll go. The enemy of my enemy. Order is the key. I'll keep them close."
Sheogorath: "No! Let her go!"
Syl: "This is not over, Madgod. I give myself to Jyggalag. As a Priest of Order, I'll be safe. Your empire will crumble before the armies of Order."
- "I expect results, Inquisitor, and I expect them soon."
- "What do you want, Inquisitor?"
