Whirlwind is an air dragon with unicorn ancestry – two species that could not be more opposite in nature, which made her never quite fit in with either group. Other dragons were envious of her beauty, while unicorns shunned her for her ability to fly. But Whirlwind found peace within the dark and stormy clouds, where she learned to harness the tempest power within her. Despite her turbulent youth, she was the first to defend both dragons and unicorns when the trolls began hunting them, unleashing her ferocity in a brilliant and powerful rainbow that could be seen throughout many regions of Skylands. From that day forward, evil-doers would quake when dark clouds brewed, and run from the rainbow that followed the storm.
Elite Whirlwind was released with the first year of Eon's Elite characters which came out with the Trap Team game. He is exclusive to GameStop.
Eon's Elite characters sit on a gold base with a clear uncolored bottom as they do not belong to any one game. In the Trap Team game and each game after Trap Team, the Eon's Elite characters will be three times stronger than the original character. In older games they will still work but they will act just like the original character did.
