Years before the start of the game, when a young Faris fell overboard, Syldra saved her. Faris quickly became friends with the giant beast. When she became captain of the pirates who rescued her, she used Syldra to help out constantly. It was thanks to Syldra that she was able to sail her ship when the wind died. However, the ship was attacked by the Karlabos, and Syldra was dragged under.
Later, Syldra appears again, much to Faris' relief, to save the party from the sinking Walse Tower. However, in doing so, Syldra dies, causing Faris to break down.
Upon visiting the Pirates' Hideout in the third world, Faris sees the spirit of Syldra in the cove. Bartz and Lenna don't see anything, but Krile, who can not only see but understand Syldra, tells Faris that even in death, Syldra wants to help. These words comfort Faris, and the party is given Syldra to summon.
Syldra is a level 4 summon and deals an attack called "Thunderstorm" - which does wind-elemental damage to all enemies. When boosted with the Air Knife or Magus Rod, Syldra can deal almost as much damage as Bahamut, for half the MP cost.
Syldra is a card in Dragon Quest & Final Fantasy in Itadaki Street Portable.
