A whirling aurora over calm, tranquil waters signifies that Silpheed is holding back the gale. She also persuades tempests to cease their fury to ensure that her beloved, a navigator she encountered during her travels, may cross the sea unscathed.

Sylph (also called sylphid) is a mythological spirit of the air. The term originates in Paracelsus, who describes sylphs as invisible beings of the air, his elementals of air. Sylph has passed into general language as a term for minor spirits, elementals, or faeries of the air. Fantasy authors will sometimes employ sylphs in their fiction, for example creating giant artistic clouds in the skies with airy wings.
Because of their association with the ballet La Sylphide, where sylphs are identified with fairies and the medieval legends of fairyland, as well as a confusion with other "airy spirits", a slender girl may be referred to as a sylph.
