The first half of Season 2 of the anime Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation finished airing last month on September 25th, with the second half slated to premiere in April 2024. It goes without saying that Sylphiette, who is consistently in the top five in various popularity polls and recently won the Mushoku Tensei community poll championship on Reddit with 47 percent of the votes, is a strong fan favorite!
Who is Sylphiette (Fitts)?
Sylphiette, also known as Fitts, is one of the heroines in Mushoku Tensei and Rudeus’s childhood friend. She is half human, a quarter elf, and a quarter beast. Due to her emerald green hair resembling that of the Superd Tribe, a tribal race of infamous warriors from the Demon Continent, she was constantly bullied as a child, causing her to become shy and meek. After Rudeus saves her from her bullies, the two form a codependent friendship until Rudeus is sent away by his father to act as Eris’s tutor. She eventually resolves to train herself to support him in the future and later becomes Princess Ariel’s bodyguard under the alias Fitts.
Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation is a light novel series written by Rifujin na Magonote and illustrated by Shirotaka.

Quiet and serious as the Silent Fitts and shy as Sylphiette, her duality and strength as one of the most powerful mages in Mushoku Tensei is most likely what draws so many people to her. Check out the fan art below that perfectly captures her in all her sweet, handsome, and badass moments!
