Myst Journey

Questions Answered

Who is older, Sirrus or Achenar?

Richard A. Watson wrote: "From our best interpretations of the D'ni historical accounts, it appears that Achenar was about two years older than Sirrus."

Whose portraits are in Sirrus' chamber on Mechanical Age?

Myst-Riven-D'ni fan Peter Hargreaves solved this mystery:

The man's portrait found on the wall behind the throne in Sirrus' chamber on Mechanical Age is really the portrait of Napoleon I on his Imperial Throne, painted in 1806 by Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres. In the Myst version, the King's face is that of Sirrus.

The woman's portrait found in Sirrus' chamber on Mechanical Age in Myst is of Madame Inès Moitessier assise, painted in 1856 by Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres.
