Brother Shymel is a monk of the Fortress of Light.
He has brown hair and brown eyes. He wears a blue toga with a grey circle affixed to the strap that has a blue gem inside of it. He has a silver shoulder pad on his right shoulder. He wears silver arm bands, a silver belt, and tan boots with brown detailing. He wields a silver staff.
In "Up to Their Old Trix," he says that he does not understand why the inhabitants of the fortress have so much freedom, and Brother Kakophonix states that the fortress is a place of rehabilitation and that it is not a prison. Brother Shymel then states that the Trix have not made any progress and that they have been screaming ever since they arrived.
Later, he agrees with Brother Kakophonix's statement that the path to knighthood is long and difficult.
