Lord Windgrace was a cat warrior (more precisely, black panther warrior) planeswalker from Urborg. 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.

He is also described by Teferi as the "panther king of Urborg[1]" and that the panthers ruled Urborg in peace for three centuries before the Brothers War, and since then there have been no panther people in Urborg other than Windgrace.

Nine titans[edit | edit source]

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 vanisheds 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.

Relation to the Windgrace estate[edit | edit source]

Interestingly, "Windgrace" was the name of Crovax's estate and / or family name. There is no evidence to support any familial link between the cat planeswalker and the human Urborg family, and the hereditary title was likely only linked through coincidence, or at most, the family was named after the planeswalker due to his power.
