Lord Windgrace was a panther warrior planeswalker from Urborg on Dominaria.[1] He was one of the Nine Titans that Urza gathered to fight Phyrexia.

History[edit | edit source]

Windgrace claimed to have been the warrior chief of his tribe. He was older than Urza, since he remembered Urborg being a forest before it was submerged by the Sylex Blast. Seeing his entire world devastated by the detonation of a magical device, instilling in him a hatred for artifacts.

He was described by Teferi as the "panther king of Urborg[2]" and it was told that the panthers ruled Urborg in peace for three centuries before the Brothers War. He was worshiped by many different catfolk on Dominaria over the years.[3][4]

Nine Titans[edit | edit source]

Windgrace was one of the eight other planeswalkers Urza recruited for the war with Phyrexia. When Urza went mad and killed Taysir, Windgrace took the fallen planeswalker's heart and put it next to his own. Windgrace survived the Phyrexian Invasion, and became a leader and guardian of Urborg.

Time Spiral crisis[edit | edit source]

During the Time Spiral crisis, Windgrace had control over the zone's slivers and other monstrosities, which he commanded to destroy anyone and anything even remotely related to artifice. During the events of Planar Chaos, Windgrace attempted to seal the time rift in Urborg located where the Rathi Stronghold had overlaid to prevent a mass of Phyrexians from pouring in. As the rift began to fold in on itself under Windgrace's magic, it sucked the life essence from him. As the rift vanished from existence, so too did Lord Windgrace.

But before facing the rift he performed a spell and claimed that he had fused his spirit to Urborg, and thus he would watch over it.

Legacy[edit | edit source]

Long after Windgrace's sacrifice, his followers remain on Urborg, sabotaging the Cabal's artifacts.[5] Aryel is from Urborg and trained with the panther-folk, bearing Windgrace's legacy.
