Sylvia's powers come from the gem embedded in her hand. Were it to be removed or damaged, her powers would vanish.Animus
When using her powers, an archetype 'totem mask' appears over Sylvia, an outline of light that precludes her using her powers subtly.D.I.D.
Using her powers to call up archetypes also influences Sylvia's personality, with consequences ranging from the professionally inappropriate to the potentially dangerous.
•Icon is an interesting Paragons character, if only because she's not a paranormal character. Sylvia Browning is a professor and archaelogist who discovered an amulet near the Black Sea that bonded with her hand Mysterious figures attacked her expedition, but were driven back by her new powers. Since then, she returned to her old life, using her powers to help people, but sometimes running into problems. The use of her Horned God powers made her hedonistic and primal, which led to ultimately losing her job after several affairs with students. Now she works for various paranormal organizations, a sort of super-powered scholar for hire.
•Icon seems like a complex build, but she's really not. She can do a lot of things, and the trick is to figure out when she needs to do any given thing, and thus, what form to use. And anytime she needs a new form, like Firebringer or Skyfather, she can power-stunt it. With all the points of her Dark King Form, she can get pretty much any power she needs. I resisted the urge to optimize her other builds, although prospective GMs could certainly make those tweaks.
