Well, certainly could be the case. Why, I need to unbury an old pet peeve of mine (that Jillian is the Titan's favourite) and eat its maggot ridden rotten corpse (**mmm, putrilicious**) whilst loudly declaring nope, in all appearance, it is Sylvia who has that favour.
And I thought the Titans were ready to dunk her in a piranha pool or magically feed her to Dwagons. (You'll have to visit the Erfworld Fanart group to get this)
Anyway, Sylivia is apparently the fav, for now, seemingly. Because, still, she's among the few characters that could just die and not make one dent in the story. Some characters are de facto immortal (Parson) while others, if croaked, would signal big drama. Scarlett though? Why she could get killed by a falling bat poopie just so that Parson sitting next to her could turn to Jack and say "watch out for bat poopies from above".
The whole point of this is lost if you keep it a secret.
