Akiye (秋江), known by the username Sheila (詩蘭), was one of the 10,000 players trapped in «Sword Art Online». She was a founding member of a Clearer guild called «Brightscale» and supported her friends as a crafter. Her twin sister was Momoko.


Akiye is a petite dark-haired girl with a cheery disposition.[1] Shortly after joining Kenji she wore crafting gear similar to a standard civilian NPC.[2]


Akiye is more reserved than Momoko but generally more assertive in her opinions.[1] In the wake of Loki's attempted robbery the girls came to greatly depend on Kenji; to the point they initially could not sleep without having him nearby, and found trusting others outside his core group difficult.[2] They enjoyed listening to Yoshiro's stories.[3] Despite the impact Loki made on her capacity to trust others Akiye managed to befriend Ino Choyo, whom the twins subsequently introduced to Kenji.[4] Akiye flourished under the care of the core «Brightscale» members. She learned from the dual examples of Kenji and Ino, with a degree of quiet confidence when conducting business. By the time «Brightscale» was established as an official guild Akiye had an impressive customer-base and product knowledge.[5]

Name Type Acquisition Notes
«Heirloom Hammer» Crafting Gear Acquired as a rare drop from a «Bandit Tailor» on December 6th, 2022, by Kenji and given to Akiye.[1] Comparable to shop-bought gear found on the 3rd Floor.[1]
«Portable Forge» Crafting Gear Shop-bought.[4] Purchased after hitting level 12 and acquiring the «Blacksmith» Skill.[4]
«Vendor's Carpet» Mercantile mat Early Christmas present from Kenji.[4] Acquired after hitting level 12 and acquiring the «Blacksmith» Skill.[5]


Akiye is a non-combatant. Instead of serving a battlefield role she supports her friends with crafting and maintenance.[6]

Her initial skills included «Heavy Metal Armor Forging» and «Light Metal Armor Forging».[1] Her third skill, acquired during intensive questing and monster-farming whilst partying with Kenji, was «Metal Refining».[2] She reached her fourth skill slot in the time between December 7th and December 15th, with her fourth skill being «Blacksmith».[4]

By the time «Brightscale» was established as an official guild, Akiye had built an impressive customer-base and product knowledge. Kenji's gift of a Vendor's Carpet allowed her to set up a shop in any safe-zone when her combat-focused comrades where questing or farming.[5]

References & notes



  1. Akiye managed to craft the «Crimson Tide» for Sojiro sometime between the 15th and 17th of December. Since she also crafted light-metal and heavy-metal armor for the other members of «Brightscale» she did not remove any existing skills. The only way she could have forged the «Crimson Tide» was if she reached level 12, gained her fourth skill slot, and slotted «Blacksmith» in her fourth Skill slot.
