—Sylvester

In season four, Sly becomes a defense attorney in order to get Cabe cleared of instigating Mark Collins' escape.

BiographyEdit

Early LifeEdit

His parents were frustrated with him as he was a disappointment to them, so at the age of 16 he hacked a bank and stole $2,500 and ran away. He would not talk to them for ten years. Eventually he ended up alone, broke and scared, "contemplating bad things", until the bank's forensic analyst tracked him down. Walter never reported him to the bank.

Once, his father gave him weights as a gift, as his father wanted him to be into sports.

Season OneEdit

PilotEdit

Sylvester is working on an elaborate math problem and the rent, discovering electricity wasn't paid for this month and their "Linwood Payment" from a previous job goes missing. Toby arrives in a rush, hushing everyone as he enters the office, explaining he gambled all their "Linwood Payment" and tripled the amount, but the thugs he cheated the money for weren't so happy about that. The thugs were trying to break in until Homeland Security show up and scared them off. Cabe Gallo, who was following Walter, now asks the team for help.

After a few minutes of arguing whether to help Agent Gallo, the team comes to an agreement to help him with saving lives of people trapped on 56 planes that cannot land due to lack of communication between the planes and the ground. The team then goes to the diner that Walter had previously done a job for. They there meet the young boy's mother, Paige Dineen. Scorpion begins their work of saving lives, having Paige translate the world for them as they go about it.

Eventually, they are able to get the corrupted software back online, and save the planes. After completing their job, Scorpion begins consulting with the government under the supervision of Agent Gallo. They also enlist the help of Paige permanently, having Paige translate the world for them while they translate her genius son, Ralph for her.

Single Point of FailureEdit

Agent Gallo introduces the gang to a desperate Governor of California. The Governor’s teenage daughter is near death with a virus she just contracted. The Governor shows Scorpion his daughter’s laptop, where she received an ominous e-mail message: "It’s your fault she’s sick.” Walter says it’s bio-hacking.

Someone sent the message and the virus specifically for the Governor’s daughter – no one else in the family was infected. The Governor’s daughter has only 24 hours to live and that gives the Scorpion crew less than 24 hours to find who sent this computer virus, reverse its affects and save the girl’s life. They track down the perpetrator to an Internet company. Seems one of their employees needed some extra cash, so he picked up a sketchy job on Craigslist. The unwitting perp sent out 4 emails, with 4 unique viruses and the same damning message.

All 4 victims are children and they’re all children of people who worked at the same pharmaceutical company. The Governor worked there before getting into politics. While he was there, they developed a drug for SMA, Spinal Musculature Atrophy. But before they cured the disease, they stopped producing the drug. Asthma was a much more widespread and therefore profitable venture, so the company shifted gears. Unfortunately, this left a lot of people angry (and potentially murderous). Scorpion orchestrates a company break-in, sending Sylvester as the inside man, since he has a photographic memory.

Sylvester goes in, visually reads the 30 pages of potential culprits and gets out of the pharmaceutical company before he’s shot to death. Gallo eventually figures out the truth – their perpetrator is a father who lost a child, so he’s hurting others the way he was hurt. It’s a biology professor – with the ability to create deadly viruses. Walter realizes that CDC can make an antidote to the virus if the learn the virus’ makeup, so they break into the professor’s office and hunt down his files.

The team rushes to a local mall, where the Governor and the Professor are set to meet. The governor thinks he’s getting the antidote for his daughter but the team knows the Professor is planning to kill the Governor. Despite a mad rush to stop the Professor, he’s able to spray the virus into the air, aiming directly for the Governor.

But Walter thinks quickly, setting a small fire which sets off the mall’s sprinkler system, killing the virus in the air. The Governor is safe. Their mission completed, Scorpion ends up joining Paige and her son, Ralph, for a cookout and celebration on the roof.

A CycloneEdit

Scorpion’s latest mission is everyone’s worst nightmare – the Internet is down. Not in their house but in all of Los Angeles. Without Internet, the whole city shuts down, from banking transactions, to emergency services, to traffic lights. It seems someone is determined to hold LA captive and freeze out all its essential operations. Agent Keeler (Glenn Plummer) meets with Scorpion, asking for their help.

When a building housing old-servers is bombed to bits, the Scorpion crew figures out that their adversary must have a communique he doesn't want revealed.Through some clever sleuthing, they discover that Keeler, the agent who hired them, is actually behind the city’s take-down. Before the gang can think twice, a bomb blast at a local law firm diverts their attention, forcing them to go on site to find the cause. With an astute ear, Happy discovers there’s more damage to come; she tracks down a new, literal ticking time bomb in the building. They have 5 minutes to disable the bomb and get everyone out – or it’s a murder scene on their hands (including their own).

Walter stays with Happy to disable the bomb, while Paige helps the rest of the crew evacuate, leading them to safety. After a blast that is serious but not catastrophic, Walter emerges out of the ashes, ready to return to his crew and face another mission.

Grow a Deer, A Female DeerEdit

After learning of Cabe's arrest, Sly joins the others in pooling their funds to pay his $500,000 bail. Sly then joins the team in trying to stop an organization of poachers that seriously injure a pregnant deer from a nearly-extinct species. Due to his phobias, Sly has a hard time dealing with the mother deer, but grows to greatly care for her, even naming her Jane after Jane Doe. At one point, Sly saves Jane's life using a defibrillator and his antibacterial gel. Thanks to Scorpion, the poachers are captured and both mother and child survive.

Nuke Kids on the BlockEdit

While trying to find Cabe a decent lawyer, Sly has to deal with his new intern Patty Logan and the struggle to save the local Science Club. Sly joins Scorpion in decommissioning a nuclear missile, but an accident nearly sets the missile off. In the end, Scorpion manages to disarm the missile safely and Sly finds a solution in the process to save the Science Club. Sly's victory inspires him to become Cabe's lawyer himself in his upcoming trial. Sly announces that he can take the Vermont bar exam to enable him to become Cabe's attorney, but he only has 48 hours to learn everything that he needs to know.

Sci HardEdit

Sly goes to Vermont to take the bar exam, dealing with a dubious test proctor due to Sly's lack of law school experience. In the middle of the test, Sly is called in to help deal with four men taking over a technology convention where Cabe, Walter and Paige are. After proving Scorpion's exploits to the proctor, Sly works to aid the rest of the team in stopping the criminals while trying to take his exam at the same time. With Sly's help, the rest of the team manages to trick and capture the bad guys.

After stopping the bad guys, Sly learns from the sympathetic proctor that he has run out of time to finish the bar exam with only seventy percent of the questions finished. The proctor reassures Sly that he did the right thing since the world has plenty of lawyers but few heroes, but Sly is upset as Cabe needs a lawyer and continues to attempt to find a way to act as Cabe's lawyer. While helping Cabe push his crappy car to a service station, Sly gets a notification revealing that the proctor rushed his results through. Though Sly only completed seventy percent of the test, he got it all correct, enabling Sly to act as Cabe's lawyer.

Faire is FoulEdit

Sly holds a pretrial hearing where he attempts to get Cabe's charges dismissed on the basis of the 8th Amendment. However, Sly becomes nervous under pressure and struggles to make his case. Though impressed by Sly's argument, the judge decides that the case will proceed to trial. Sly experiences a confidence issue as a result that becomes a problem when dealing with criminals at a Renaissance Fair. However, Sly is able to rally the nerds at the fair to help stop the bad guys and regains his confidence.

Crime Every MountainEdit

While the rest of the team tests Happy's new winch, Sly stays behind with Cabe to prepare for his fast approaching trial. Due to Cabe's unrealistic expectations, Sly refuses to allow Cabe to testify on his own behalf. While the team is away, Sly discovers from a computer he and Walter set up that there is a lead on Mark Collins location and teams up with Cabe to capture him, leaving them unable to render assistance to the rest of the team. The lead turns out to be a trap and Mark frames Cabe for taking a $50,000 bribe, resulting in Cabe facing bribery charges as well. With Cabe now having a more realistic view of the situation, Sly decides to request a bench trial so that Cabe's innocence or guilt will be decided by an experienced judge instead of a jury and agrees to allow Cabe to testify.

Who Let The Dog Out ('Cause Now It's Stuck in a Cistern)Edit

Cabe goes on trial in with Sly representing him before a judge known for his harsh verdicts. Sly's attempts to help Cabe backfire with the judge rejecting the defenses Sly presents, especially after Sly purposefully shocks the judge with Mark's ankle cuff to demonstrate the pain Mark would've felt. On the verge of losing the case, Sly gains inspiration from Cabe's claim that they were on an island and gains a brief continuance to ask for Toby's help in finding an obscure case from 1804 that Sly believes holds the key to Cabe's exoneration. Despite being chased by the police, Toby is able to send Sly a copy of the case. Sly then argues that as Cabe and Mark were on an ice floe, under maritime law based on the 1804 case, Cabe was within his rights to release Mark. Though dubious, the judge allows the defense in.

While waiting for the judge, Cabe and Sly recognize Cabe's likely guilty verdict and Cabe makes Sly acknowledge that no matter how the case turns out, Sly did everything he could. Based on a detailed brief that Sly supplied on how Mark could've hacked the bank, the judge dismisses the bribery charges outright. The judge ultimately accepts Sly's argument that Cabe was within his rights to release Mark under maritime law and Cabe is found not guilty and released. Following Cabe's exoneration, Toby and Florence call upon Sly to defend them from the charges they accumulated aiding Sly in exonerating Cabe. Sly manages to get the two community service and comments that his legal career is really taking off.

PersonalityEdit

Sylvester is germaphobe and OCD, he also has more phobias than you can count (including claustrophobia and ornithophobia) he also has an eidetic memory
