There is a move in Golden Sun actually called psy drain used by Jupiter adepts. If you want your character to specifically have it maybe he has a weapon unleash or an unleash of some type (since I dunno how the GSARP is going to work) that unleashes a technique similar to psy drain.

Maybe he is also cursed with an item (like the artifacts mentioned in his bio) that fused to him somehow, making them difficult to remove, and also cause him to drain psynergy through small vortexes, maybe on his hands like what's-his-face from Inuyasha.

If you want to wield various other type of psynergy though, the creators even mention "if you could just change your Djinni, you could have any kind of power, so that's kind of cheating[x]"

But from your bio it seems more like you are taking a Tuaparang soldier approach (they throw psy bombs and drain your psynergy so you can only use djinn and summons to attack.) Dullahanalso has Djinn Storm and Element Swap to hinder the use of djinn in battle, and if you want a technique like that I would recommend that it only works on one person at a time and doesn't force ALL of a person's djinn into recovery mode. (Since Dullahan is also found in the Anemos Inner Sanctum dungeon I think this supports your backstory about your character being from Anemos). Maniac's character, Thanias, also seems to have djinn that achieve some similar psynergy-damaging effects.

There is also a technique called reflect, that is not defined at all in the games, though it is a Mercury based psynergy and probably reflects an attack back at it's caster--so you could use someone's psynergy against them without having to actually be capable of using that psynergy, Which may accomplish your idea of how a character could "steal" someone's psynergy.

All in all I think the type of character you want would work if they were either a Jupiter or Mercury Adept. Even teleport and warp (Jupiter and Mercury? psynergies), maybe if used on a psynergy vortex, could give a user the ability to transport from one place/dimension to another, which could give him a neat knowledge or insight into utilizing psynergy vortexes.

Overall, I think if you just broke the main psynergy abilties you want him to have into weaker more specific attacks/unleashes/djinn then the character could easily be worked into a GS roleplay as a playable character with a neat backstory.

(I added links because I don't know what you have or haven't already researched on your own, without playing the games, but here are some other things that might help you figure stuff out)

I hope that this helps!

Don't forget that we're totally fine with you making different elemental versions of spells, too.  Want to have Defense buffs, but not mars?  Just make a new spell of different name for your element with the same effect, and you're good.  In fact, I'm ticked off at Himi because she did this for Poison Flow -> Toxic Grit, but not for Drain/Psy Drain like she should have.
Empty until I find something new to do with this space.

Thanks for the advice Adrea.  I can find attacks/items from the games and tweak them to create more suitable powers.  Henso's artwork has been edited along with his character bio.  This time he is a learner instead of a master holding back.

yes

A few of them are based on custom sprites.
