Syldra concept art by Yoshitaka Amano.

Syldra (シルドラ, Shirudora?), also known as Hydra, is a character and summon from Final Fantasy V. She is Faris Scherwiz's childhood friend. Her signature attack is a wind-elemental Thunderstorm, which she shares with some lightning-elemental summoned monsters.

AppearancesEdit

V Syldra is Faris's pet sea dragon. In the Anthology release, Hydra is referred to as male, but in all other versions she is female.

StoryEdit

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)
Syldra's Death

Syldra saves Faris and her friends from the sinking Walse Tower.

FFV Syldra Field Sprite iOS When a young Faris fell overboard, Syldra saved her. Faris became friends with the beast, and when she became captain of the pirates who rescued her, she used Syldra to help them out. Syldra pulls the pirate ship through the water, which makes it one of the two known ships on Planet R that doesn't need wind to move. The ship is attacked by Karlabos, and Syldra is separated from the party.

Syldra's Soul Pirates' Hideout

Faris meets Syldra's spirit in the Pirates' Hideout.

Later, Syldra sacrifices herself to save the party from the sinking Walse Tower, and Faris breaks down. Upon visiting the Pirates' Hideout in the Merged World Faris sees Syldra's spirit in the cove. Bartz and Lenna do not see anything, but Krile, who can understand Syldra, tells Faris that even in death, Syldra wants to help. These words comfort Faris, and the party is given Syldra to summon.

Spoilers end here.

GameplayEdit

Syldra is a level 4 summon and deals an attack called Thunderstorm for 32 MP, 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.

In the mobile and Steam versions, the player earns the "Say Hello, Syldra!" achievement after obtaining the pirate ship.
