hmpf ... Windkin was "in a bad mood" in the Sunvillage already. And I don't see a good reason for this - he had a lovemate, he had magic users for company and even his parents (tho they were sleeping most of the time).
Then he went to the Forevergreen, got captured, betrayed, lost his lovemate and stayed alone witout company for who knows how long. This affected him deeply without doubt.
Nevertheless this does not count as an excusion for treating Wavecatcher mean - and what makes it worse - without any reason! Wouldn't compare him with Rayek - this one had plausible reasons at least. Too much of "uncle" Kureel's bad manners, I'd say!
On the other hand - I neither trust Barry Blair's New Blood nor the late Wavedancers for final judgement. I'll wait for Wendy's (hopefully!) take on him! In his actual state - yes, he could give a believable villain ...
