Mainly a solo player, Tsukiko Mataki (月子, Tsukiko) is a person who resides within the Sword Art Online universe. He was one of the 10,000 players who got stuck within the death game. Not one to socialize, he remains in the back and focuses on stopping the threats of the Player Killers while also helping with the floor bosses.

On one day, Syphon and a company of other players managed to completely destroy a Pk'er Guild, known as Broken Souls.


Not a very social person, Tsukiko likes to play through the game on his own. It's not that he doesn't like company, it's just that he would rather depend on his own skills than the skills of others. He is calm and collected, not one to flip out easily.

However, if something he's been working on for a long time is disrupted, he will get angry. He doesn't like to see his work get thrown away. Syphon is also caring to his friends. He doesn't show it, but he does not like to see others die, especially those he has formed some sort of bond with. 


Syphon's name in real life is Tsukiko Mataki. Wanting only to name his character Syphon only because he liked how it sounded, his friends thought that it was very unusal, considering that his name is Tsukiko. When Tsukiko first learned about the beta test applications he applyed the instant that he could. Unfortunately, he wasn't picked by the GM's or the main creator of the game.

He wasn't angry, but he would of really injoyed playing in a VRMMORPG. So, the moment when it was annouced a month later that the game will be releasing soon, he went out to buy the Nerve Gear and the game called Sword Art Online (SAO).

He later got inside his room and hooked up the Nerve Gear before placing everything in the correct order. He put the game in the game slot and put on the helmet, waiting until the clock said the time that the servers would be open. He said the words: Link Start! And was engulfted by a colorful aray of lights. 

Shortly after the announcement by non other then the creator of SAO himself, Tsukiko knew instantly that hanging around the starting city wasn't gonna do anybody good, so he hurried off to find any non-taken level grinding spots. His future, has been decided for him. 

On floor 3, Syphon went into cover, hiding in the dungeons. Not for fear he would get caught for Killing Pk'ers, but he was looking for something, something he needed in order to be of some real use to the death game. He trained for one whole week in the floor 3 dungeon, it was there that he came opon Multi-floor quests.

one of them, could be done on the floor, that's where he got the Outfit: Dusk of the Black and White Moon (Page following later) And a few things to complete the outfit.

A boost in speed, two swords introduced, and a lot of time on his hands. He begins to distance himself from other players more so then he already had. Then was, until him and Sho, a friend of his, fought a quest boss on floor 1. Maybe it wasn't meant to be...his sister.

It wasn't long after, floor 4, when he started having issues with writing reports about bosses or mobs that haven't been found. Some might call it 'Distracted.' And he was extremely distracted. By what? He realized that he fell in love with another player. Fate meeting? He didn't believe in those, all he did was that he fell in love, and he had to deal with it.

Floor 5, on new years eve, Syphon confessed to the girl he liked. And in return he earned quite the surprising answer; she returned his feelings. But even though they expressed that, from floors 6,7,8,9 and 10, they haven't had much time to talk. Whether it was about the guild with Kyo, or solo grinding with Syphon, it didn't matter.

On floor ten, Syphon challenged the guilds Second in Command to a duel. And he lost badly. But soon before he lost completely, his trainer jumped into the battle and saved him. Who is this girl who saved him? Nobody will know.
