TOTEH CHARACTERS: Torrijayne and Sygillis

"Torri and Syg" by Bea Matarredona-Garcia

COUNTESS SYGILLIS OF BLANCHEFORT AND DUCHESS TORRIJAYNE OF OYLNare characters that appear in the Temple of the Exploding Head trilogy. Both of them are ex-Black Hats, Syg having been turned in the original LoE book, and Torri in book 2. Syg and Torri have a bad history together, and were mortal enemies as Black Hats, often ignoring the Sisters on the battlefield so that they could fight each other instead.

As civilized, tamed ladies of the League, Syg and Torri no longer try to kill each other, however, they are still enemies, just on a social level. When invited to the same parties, they try to humiliate each other. Syg attacked Torri with StT’s that ate through her clothes at a recent ball, leaving her quite naked. Torri snuck a potion into Syg’s tea that turned her teeth black and flooded Blanchefort village with funny Syg-tee-shirts. They destroyed the buffet table at a party with wind and smoke as they attempted to Out-Waft one another. And on and on.

Despite their hatred of each other, Syg and Torri are good friends with their respective husbands. Torri often has Captain Davage in stitches with her off-color “Syg Jokes”. Torri also adores Syg’s children, Kay being her favorite. They often write each other, Kay referring to her with the code name: Dimples.

  1. In “Hazards of The Old Ones” the relationship between Syg and Torri was one of my favorite things! Their physical fight was both brutal and humorous, and when they have words–I can barely keep a straight face: )

    Hey Chris!!

    The S&M aspect of Torri, when the Duke chains her up naked in his dungeon was one of my fav parts. I love S&M! I don’t get to write it enough.
