I am in love with Windkin. I love that he's not a cookie-cutter elf. He's not about joy and light and unquestioning love. He's capable of brooding and even revenge. In a way, he's the opposite of Newstar, the "elfiest" elf. And yet, he's not "bad" or "evil."
To its credit, even the Forevergreen storyline captured this perfectly (regardless of how the character looked when depicted by the weird Barry Blair/Colin Chan/Angel art style). The fact that such a character exists is a testament to Wendy and Richard's character-development prowess.
Oh and I ADORE the way Wendy has depicted his hair. Windblown and angular...perfect. I had the same impression as Lunakat: dreads. Clearly not the same nappy and wondeful kind of dreads that humans get, but a beautiful elf versoin, as honestly only Wendy could depict.
He's in the same vein as Rayek. I want to see a LOT more of him in Final Quest proper.
