The Whirlwind was a legendary horse living in Zakhara in 1367 DR.[note 1][1]


The Whirlwind had a vicious temperament and actually appeared to enjoy fighting.[1]


Shod with special steel shoes, the Whirlwind performed devastating attacks with his rider during raids on caravans traveling between Huzuz and Halwa.[1]


The Whirlwind was ridden by Fasim Kaldur, the leader of the Riders of Blood.[1]

Rumors and LegendsEdit

One rumor stated that Fasim was about to fall before a swarm of enemies, but his horse brutally attacked them in a whirlwind of bites and kicks, saving Fasim's life in the process.[1]
