Sylph are generally reserved and shy when not in combat. The Sylph are excellent at hiding, but not as great at remaining quiet. Often cauing people to say things like: Is someone out there? Are they hiding from us? When they do reveal themselves, they are tiny plant-like faeries that stand approximately a foot tall and

They speak an idiosyncratic form of the common language most notable for its lack of traditional pronouns. Sylphs replace first and third person pronouns with constructions such as "this one" (I/me) or "those ones" (they/them). Second, and sometimes third, person pronouns, as well as names in most contexts, are replaced with similar constructions using adjectives, such as "walking one" for any individual of the player-character races, or "trusted one," "cheerful one," or "nasty ones" for individuals of those descriptions.


An Esper that employs the lingering life force of windswept leaves to drain enemies. They then use that power to heal the High Summoner and their allies.

Special Attacks[edit]

Osmose: As a standard action, the Sylphs spin and twirl around each other in a random pattern which generates a small amount of various green, blue, teal and white lights. After a moment a quick strong breeze pushes from behind the Sylph, carrying the lights forward in a straight 30 ft line to attack the first target it touches. That creature must make a successful Reflex save (DC = High Summoner's level + Sylph's Dexterity modifier {9} ) or take 1d8 damage. The amount of damage taken by the creature is then given as healing to a single ally of the High Summoner's choosing.

Spell-like Abilities: 3/day Feather Fall, Message. 1/day Faerie Fire When summoned by a 4th level or higher High Summoner, Sylph may cast Invisibility 1/day. The save DCs = 10 + ½ High Summoner Class level + Sylph's Wisdom modifier. Caster level is equal to the High Summoner's Class level (minimum of 1st). Any save DC are Wisdom based.


Whisperwind: As a full round action, the Sylphs spin and twirl around each other in a random pattern which generates a large amount of various green, blue, teal and white lights. After a moment a quick strong breeze pushes from behind the Sylph, carrying the lights forward in a 30 ft cone. Every enemy in the cone must succeed at a Reflex save (DC = 10 + ½ High Summoner's Class level + Sylph's Dexterity modifier {9} ) or take 2d8 damage. All damage dealt is totaled up and then divided evenly as healing between all allies within 100 feet of the High Summoner. Any odd amount of healing is given to the ally with the most hit points missing after the initial heal.
