Sybil Wicked is one of the main antagonists that the reader can encounter in the twelfth Give Yourself Goosebumps book, Welcome to the Wicked Wax Museum.


Welcome to the Wicked Wax Museum

According to her servant, Axel, who has only his skull for a face, Sybil Wicked was in a fire three years prior to when the book takes place. While everyone assumed Sybil died in the fire, she had actually survived, but her face was horribly disfigured. Sybil went into hiding so that she could spend all of her time trying to repair her face. Sybil steals the faces of others to aid her in her experiments.

In one ending, it is revealed that Sybil Wicked was never human. She was a wax figure created by Dr. Izzy Wicked. Sybil was the doctor's best creation until her disfigurement. In this same ending, Sybil gets too close to a Suction Screen, and her patchwork face comes off. If the reader doesn't have a mirror on them, Sybil steals their face. If the reader does have a mirror, Sybil will see her own hideous reflection and melt.

General information

Physical appearance

Sybil Wicked has the appearance of a person in their late teens. Since her face was disfigured in a fire, Sybil covers what remains of her actual face with pieces of wax and human skin. When Sybil's mask is on, she has a tuft of red hair just above her forehead and her eyes appear mismatched; one eye is small and blue, and the other eye is large, brown, and higher on her face than the other.

When Sybil's fake face falls away, it is revealed that her actual face looks like a purple, gooey nest filled with bugs.

In concept art for Download and Die!, Sybil has long black hair and while her mask does appear to consist of multiple different faces, the eyes are not mismatched; they are similar in size and both are blue. In the actual story, Sybil appears as a monochromatic yellow hologram.
