The Wyvern's Gale was said to be made by a legendary blacksmith who was said to have made this weapon for a group of weapons masters who consisted of 7 experts in their specific weapons. this was made for a sorceress who was said to have had a run in with a clutch of bog imps, when she was young. She and her family passed through a swamp with a trade caravan, her family was said to have be sacrificed as payment for the rest of the caravan to be escorted along the road leading through the large swamp. This Fan and a few copies were said to have been passed down to other sorceresses that this great warrior had trained in her later years.
It is said that there are a few blacksmiths who have had the privilege to have examined the Weapon and understand it to the point of recreation. though few and far between there are stories of blacksmiths who were apprentices of those original smiths and have inherited the making of the Fan themselves.
