Selys Shivertail is a female Drake that works as a [Receptionist] in Liscor's Adventurer Guild.
Selys is a shorter drake, shorter than Pisces at least, with light green scales and colorful clothes.
Selys is socially very active and has lots of friends and acquaintances, including several ex-boyfriends. Among her childhood friends are Messyl, Drassi, Wuvisa, Maviss, Mica, Warsh, Lellia...
Selys was, as of Volume 2, one of the most senior [Receptionists] of the guild, and usually busy with lots of paperwork that she dutifully tackled while dealing with the regular insanity of the adventurers around her.
Volume 1 Edit
Selys became friends with Erin Solstice because she was the first Drake to give Erin a handshake instead of a hard time. Although the pleasance of their first meeting was cut short by Terbore, she later helped to stitch pads out of bandages for Erin. She also was kind to Erin when Klbkch had been killed and was there for Erin's first [Immortal Moment]. They began going shopping together and travel to visit the Ruins of Liscor and at some point Erin would consider her the relatable Drake receptionist to whom to go with problems or when she needed to learn more about the world she had arrived in. She warned Erin not to go exploring the Floodplains alone, and was glad when Erin returned from her first trip okay.
She first met Pisces on a trip to visit the inn and was not pleased that he had created Toren for Erin, which fueled their first severe argument with each other. Despite that argument and her contempt for his profession, she and Zevara told Pisces to stay and fight during Skinner's Attack on Liscor
Volume 2 Edit
At the start of the winter season, she introduced Erin to Peslas. On the same day, Toren exploded the old Inn, and Selys helped in salvaging the ruins in order to build a new inn closer to Liscor. The next day she helped Erin sell hamburgers in Liscor and introduced Hawk to her. She went with Erin and Ryoka to the bathhouse, showing that they were good friends already; and helped Erin in preparing the Frost Faeries' banquet by teaching Toren how to extract Shield Spiders' venom.
Selys played a crucial role in the rescue of Lyonette after the thieving [Princess] was exiled from Liscor: Selys couldn't be seen by the Gnolls helping the girl, so she arranged for Pisces to become a Bronze-rank adventurer in exchange for him telling Erin of the fate of Lyonette. Later, when the Gnolls were boycotting Erin and Brunkr and some other Gnolls tried to attack her inn, Selys notified Zevara from within the guild where she was closely guarded by Gnolls. She also triggered the assistance of the Halfseekers.

Volume 1 Edit
- (To Krshia) “She’s insane. They’re going to kill her. It’s going to kill her.”
- (To Pisces) “And I’m a receptionist at the Adventurer’s Guild. I’ll put a twenty-gold bounty on your head if you so much as raise an undead anywhere within twenty miles of the city.”
- (To Adventurers) “No, there are no more requests available. Sorry. Next! You two, the Human and er, pointy-eared Human!”
- (To Ceria & Gerial) “Why would you need anything like that? You’re adventurers, right? Just go out and kill monsters and try not to get killed.”
- (To Erin) "We don’t lay eggs. We’re descendants of Dragons, but only in some ways. We don’t lay eggs or hibernate. We. Are. Not. Lizards.”
- (To Erin) “You stroked his tail? Erin! It was only a first date!”
Volume 2 Edit
- (To Erin) “Yeah! You look like you’re overwhelmed. Need a friendly tail?”
- (To Erin) “It’s all he likes to make. Couldn’t he try something else when he’s courting? But no, it’s all carrots. Carrot pies, carrot soup, carrot salads, raw carrots, noodles and carrots, carrots baked into bread…”
Volume 4 Edit
- (To Erin) “Let me introduce you to one right now. Don’t you worry; Aunt Selys is on the job! That’s Aunt Selys for Mrsha, obviously. Don’t call me an Aunt, Erin. It’ll make me feel old.”
Volume 5 Edit
- (To Adventurers) “I said get out there! The city is under attack! You’re adventurers, this is your job!”
- (To Zevara) “My uncle’s dead. That’s my business. I’m not the one dealing with his dead body killing people. I’ll be fine, Watch Captain. You do your job. I’ll be fine.”
- (To Pisces) “I’m not afraid of the undead. I just don’t like them. Is it going to get to work or do I have to kick you into the water after it?”
- (To Pisces) “If you’re going to create an undead monster, Pisces, do it right. Can you make more?”
- (To Pisces) “I’m a [Receptionist] for the Adventurer’s Guild. I have to memorize monster weaknesses and variants. You’re the [Necromancer] here. What’s your excuse?”
- (To Tekshia) “I’m not. But I say it should be this way, Grandma. If you’ll sign this, I’ll take responsibility for the Goblins. If they cause trouble, I’ll take the blame. Not you. You can put that in writing.”
- (To Olesm) “Ancestors, Olesm! You are the worst liar I’ve ever met! And I’ve talked to the Antinium!”
- (To Erin) “Grandma’s not budging, and if she’s staying, I’d better stay with her to make sure she doesn’t fall asleep. Besides, reinforcements are on the way, right?”
Volume 6 Edit
- (To Pisces) “Yeah, well, I didn’t see you helping Krshia. Or me. Where was the handy, know-it-all [Necromancer] when I could have used someone arguing against Olesm and Lism?”
- (To Pisces) “Amazing. Five minutes of talking with me and you have a better idea then you came up in what, four weeks of work?”
- (To Erin) “That’s the worst—no, wait, Hawk and Relc are worse. But that’s pretty bad, Erin.”
- (To Erin) “I don’t know. Did we win? Can we win if it’s not complete, Erin? If it’s just a little victory? How can I feel good about it when I know—we deserved more? We did, and they cheated.”
- (To Pisces) “I don’t know why you’re so upset. It’s not as if I forced you to leave the inn. We’re on a small outing. It’s a favor to me. Can you not act as though I’m sacrificing your mother?”
- (To Pisces) “But not enough. If you did it for a reason, that’s one thing. She hated you because you were a [Necromancer]. That’s another.”
