Final Fantasy Compendium

Sylph

The Sylph summon consists of several pixies that steal HP from the enemy and give it to the characters. In FF4, it only gave HP to the caster; in FF5, the entire party. In Tactics, Silf did not steal HP, but instead looks like a little nymph/gnome creature and silences enemies. In FF12RW, Sylph is non-elemental (despite having an attack called Aero).
