Hello! I am new to the community here and I would like to know if anyone can help me understand sylvari cycles. I'm not the rp'er of sorts that writes scripts and acts ingame (although I admire the art of it) but I'm a player that embarrassingly takes character making a tad too far lol. I guess in an artistic and writer's sense. I always try to give my characters some sort of backstory and theme. Sylvari's, being my favorite race, seems kinda tough for me as they come with this "cycle" thing. I try to be as lore-friendly as possible with my characters. So I would like to know how these "cycles" influence a sylvari.
As for the character, I'm trying to make a sylvari ranger that is childlike, quiet, timid, shy, and not the most confident sylvari. She is kindhearted, sweet, helpful, and would love to make friends, she's just hindered by these things. She's quite curious while mostly hangs around nature, where she is mostly in tune and a natural when it comes to living in it, while having a weird quirk of talking to animals (mainly her pets). For the people that she does meet however, she becomes quite loyal to. And not having many friends, she can get a bit excited around them.
I thought dawn was the most fitting choice as she is still friendly and nice, just not confident in herself. Tho the diplomatic and planning part of the cycle doesn't fit. Night was my second choice, but she isn't really lonely/private because she wants to be. Which cycle will work best? One of my friends said that cycles don't fully determined how a sylvari is.
I really appreciate the help! I just wasn't quite sure where or who to ask lol ;;
