Sylva Santagar, known as Spotted Sylva, is a member of House Santagar. She is the heir of Ser Symon Santagar, the Knight of Spottswood.


Sylva has many freckles.[3]


Sylva Santagar is a childhood friend of Princess Arianne Martell.[3] They were children at the Water Gardens together, usually a group of five, along with Tyene Sand, Garin, and Andrey Dalt.[4]

Because of her freckles, Sylva received the nickname "Spotted Sylva". Her friends like to pretend the nickname comes from the fact that she is the heir to Spottswood, as the Santagars' sigil is a spotted leopard.[3]
