Cirrus Kindwind

Cirrus ('lock of blonde hair') Kindwind is a Swordmain. This mild-tempered and empathetic Giantess does not hesitate to impale a couple of hundred Landish enemies with her 10-foot granite longsword, should they threaten Linden and her companions. She might have lost her right arm to a skurj, but that does not hinder her either from working as Mahrtiir's personal draughtgiant, or as noted above, kindly and gently kicking in the skulls of some Cavewights.

According to a fan theory, her second name might have meant that she enjoyed eating beans and cabbage a tad too much, and thus produced some musical wind. This was denied by the author himself.

Role in The Last DarkEdit


Akin to Foamfollower and Pitchwife, Kindwind becomes, at least partially, a mediator for a main character's internal struggles. This time the fretter is Jeremiah, a young man brimming with the hormonal oomph and whiny angst of adolescence.


Kindwind dies in the bowels of Lord Foul's demesne, stabbed through the eye by a Cavewight spear.
