|Attack form:||The Twins|
The Black Whirlwind was a mercenary formerly hired by Lord Yun who joined the player as a follower.Black Whirlwind grew up in an abusive household until he killed his father. After his father's death his mother kicked him out onto the streets. He was once a champion at the Imperial Arena but left shortly after his brother Raging Ox's death. The Black Whirlwind is a brawler of legendary stature, although the legends dwell as much on his drunken stupidity as his skill in combat. He is rude, crude, and thickheaded, so much so that he has simply no understanding of what he can and cannot do. While he is an absolute disaster at anything diplomatic, if someone is needed to survive a suicidal battle against overwhelming odds, the Black Whirlwind is the man for the job.
Spear Catches Leaf: "You've just had the... unexpected honor of defeating the Black Whirlwind, the self-styled deadliest mercenary in the Jade Empire."
Player: "What earns a mercenary a title like "deadliest?""
Spear Catches Leaf: "The tales say this man once stormed an entire fortress alone, naked, and screaming his defiance into the night."
The Black Whirlwind: "Ha! Scared the tar out of those border guards! But they botched the story; I was naked, screaming, *and* I was dead drunk."
