Before the Film

Almost nothing is known about Gylfie's past before the events of the movie, other than that she is from the Desert of Kuneer. However, she does come to St. Aegolius with a knowledge of star navigation and is aware of the effects of moon blinking.

Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole

In the movie, Gylfie met Soren when they were captured by the Pure Ones. Her captor was Grimble. She and Soren protested against Nyra, forcing them into doing the job of pickers. Gylfie was the one who figured out that the Pure Ones were trying to moon blink them and told Soren that she could use the stars to lead them away- if they could fly. She and Soren escape from St. Aggie's (after nearly falling to her death and getting her leg slashed by a Pure One) and found Twilight and Digger. The Echidna dubbed her "the navigator" of the band, and humorously added "who doubts" (due to the fact she doubted the Echidna had any of the powers he claimed to have), which she found insulting. When she arrived at the tree, she and Otulissa immediately disliked each other. She also seemed jealous when Otulissa flirted with Soren. Gylfie is shown to have interest in the stars and Strix Struma's class. She helped fight the bats off when the Guardians were in trouble. Like in the books, Gylfie was very sensitive but smart.
