A daughter of the Frost Giant King Laufey adopted by Asgardians, unlike most other versions of Loki, Sylvie was born as a woman. At some point, she caused her reality to deviate from the "Sacred Timeline". For this, she was arrested by Time Variance Authority.
Sylvie was brought inside the TVA Headquarters and processed like the other Variants, but when she was brought before a judge for her case to be heard, she stole Hunter A-23's TemPad and used it to run away. Figuring out that she could hide in apocalypses where any deviations made by her would go unnoticed by the TVA, Sylvie spend her entire life running from and hating the TVA, determined to bring it down. She eventually hatched a plan in which she would cause minor temporal anomalies for the TVA to check upon, then ambush them and steal their equipment using the enchantment magic that she had taught herself. However, when the plan reached completion and a multitude of Reset Charges were set all over the timeline to provide Sylvie a distraction necessary to reach the Time-Keepers within the TVA, another Loki Variant intervened. He followed Sylvie inside the TVA, attempted to stop her and when the two were spotted by Judge Ravonna Renslayer, used Sylvie's TemPad to trap them inside the apocalypse on Lamentis-1. The TemPad was initially out of power and then broken, so the two Variants had to work together to leave the doomed moon, to no avail. However, their growing feelings for one another caused a massive Nexus event, enabling the TVA to locate and apprehend them.
Inside the TVA, Sylvie's unique knowledge of its staff being mind-wiped Variants began to spread, with first Hunter C-20, then Hunter B-15 and eventually Agent Mobius all revealed to their true nature and turning against the TVA. When Renslayer brought the two Variants before the Time-Keepers to be pruned, Hunter B-15 intervened and helped the Loki Variants break free. Sylvie decapitated one of the Time-Keepers, revealing that they were in fact mere animatronics, shocking everyone present. Ravonna managed to prune the Loki Variant, but was overpowered by Sylvie who took Ravonna captive.
Stalling for time, Ravonna revealed that pruned matter was not destroyed instantly, but rather transported into the Void at the end of time which meant that the Loki Variant was still alive. When the Minutemen arrived and the deception became apparent, Sylvie took Ravonna's TemPad and baton and pruned herself to follow him. Confronted by Alioth, she managed to escape with the help of Mobius, likewise pruned on Renslayer's orders, and eventually reunited with the other Loki and even more versions of themselves. Classic Loki sacrificed himself to distract Alioth, enabling Sylvie and Loki to enchant it and open the pathway to the Citadel at the End of Time.
There, Loki and Sylvie were met by Miss Minutes who gave them one last offer from He Who Remains to be reinserted into their preferred timeline should they agree to stop pursuing the truth behind the TVA. Both Lokis rejected the offer and were met by He Who Remains, who explain the origins of himself and the TVA and presented them a choice: to take over the TVA and continue his mission in a more benevolent way or to kill him and let the branching timelines plunge the Multiverse into a new chaos. Loki was being cautious and wanted to at least think it through, but Sylvie was determined to have her revenge. After a brief fight, she pushed Loki out back into the timestream and killed He Who Remains by stabbing him through a chest. However, her revenge did not bring her closure and Sylvie broke down crying.
