On Season 23, Day 106, Semiquaver retreated to the Lift's Shadows in exchange for Uncle Plasma XIV at Tokyo Fitness Center via the Ratified Fax Machine. Semiquaver was traded to the LA Unlimited Tacos' Shadows with no replacement during the Season 23 elections via the Gachapon blessing.

Box of Silvaire Semiquaver Files
- Dust billows as the file box lands on the table. While many archives in the Interdimensional Rumor Mill are unified in some way, this... definitely isn’t one of them. The accompanying Rumor Registry explains all of the contents... wherever it is... but for now you grab the folder labelled IF-92.467 and start reading...
Prior to joining the Tokyo Lift, the infamous international art thief Silvaire Semiquaver was wanted in a half dozen countries for theft of various paintings, sculptures, and other historical artifacts, while simultaneously being celebrated in a dozen more for returning said historical artifacts to their country of origin. Authorities are currently asking for assistance in navigating the ILB’s multitude of regulations and loopholes currently preventing Semiquaver’s arrest.
Due to her general secrecy and avoidance of the public eye, a number of fan clubs have sprung up dedicated to tracking and analyzing Semiquaver’s movements and public statements, in hopes of finding her secret identity or predicting her next heist. Although these efforts have never borne fruit, these fans have deduced that Semiquaver is a public figure of some renown. Popular guesses include:
- Jessica Telephone, batter for the Tokyo Lift
- Neon, renowned artist and concertmaster for the Tokyo Philharmonic
- Lady Glagla, Grammly-award-winning pop singer
- Wayne Bruce, billionaire industrialist
- Mayumi di Batterino, socialite and mother of Cudi Di Batterino
- Parker MacMillan II, previous ████████ and ████████
Fans who suggest that Silvaire Semiquaver is actually Tillman Henderson are frequently heckled out of discussions due to the absurdity of this claim.
Semiquaver is also an open practitioner of skiamancy (magic involving the manipulation of shadows), as she is often seen teleporting through the shadows of the Legscraper and creating constructs from liquid shadow. It is unknown whether her hair, which fans have suggested resembles a shadowy lava lamp, is a result of her dabbling in dark magic.
Joining the Tacos
In Season 23, Semiquaver was randomly selected by the Tacos’ Gachapon blessing and sent to Los Angeli. While she initially expressed dislike for being in a new place for the first time (having never previously lived outside of Tokyo), she soon became interested in the interactions between her skiamancy and Los Angeli’s “weirdness”. Most shadowed players for the Tacos inhabit fairly normal environments, but Semiquaver was able to gain access to a dimension adjacent to the immaterial plane, an even more shattered and distorted dimension of darkness. Since then, she has additionally been seen creating temporary shadow clones of herself. When reached for comment, fellow shadowed player Wyatt Dovenpart mumbled something about not trusting them but also about Naruto, and then left the room.
Semiquaver has prior experience with non-euclidean physics-defying spaces, and her teleportation is always capable of taking her back to her home dimension. However, it is slightly less accurate than in Tokyo, as Los Angeli is unfamiliar with her. For unclear reasons, it seems to have become slightly more helpful as time goes on. Knife Angeles in particular seems to like her.
Semiquaver was pulled into active play midway through Season 24, with the Tacos already starting en route to the Desert. She brought a certain level of cool aunt energy and a knife to practices, and after many requests, taught all her teammates basic sword fighting.
While she is frequently described as standoffish or occasionally rude by the majority of her teammates, interviews with other members of the Lift suggest that she has formed close personal relationships with the now-legendary Goodwin Morin (her former roommate), Val Hitherto (her rival), Cudi Di Batterino (relationship currently unknown, speculated to be a close friendship), and Steals Mondegreen (partners in crime, rumored to be dating).
The Tacos were quick to accept Semiquaver as much as possible, partially due to facing the Black Hole(Black Hole) together, and partially because of her friendship with former Taco Wyatt Quitter and not-quite-former-Taco Wyatt "Jasmine" Mason, with some Tacos claiming that friendship makes them “basically family”. During her brief stay on the Lift, Mason had often been seen wearing more feminine-presenting, elegant-yet-practical clothing borrowed from Semiquaver.
Semiquaver appears to have bonded quickly with Pannonica Oko and Basilio Mason over being the most high-fashion and fancy of the Tacos, taking it one step further with Oko by starting a friendly rivalry. This was possibly aided in Oko’s case by both being musically inclined and theft-inclined, and in Mason’s case by Semiquaver having heard a lot about him from his former teammates on the Lift and by them both being dramatic and tired. It is rumored that she also formed friendships with Peanut Bong (who helps with her heists), Sexton Wheerer (who reminds her to take breaks, having seen how many hobbies she has), Yummy Elliott (who began practicing zir somewhat neglected psychic powers again after Semiquaver’s arrival), and Felix Garbage.
Interviews suggest she has yet to fully warm up to several of the more quiet players on the Tacos.
