Drake claims to have made Werewindle after hanging from Yig. This claim has gained more credence in recent years than once it had, given Drake's successful quest to re-forge Greyswandir after it was destroyed; it is theorized that the original Werewindle was destroyed when Ember was devastated in 462, and that Drake in fact made the -second- Werewindle.
Werewindle is a golden blade with red tracery along it, depicting a portion of the Pattern. It is known to have the power to sense magic, and believed to have some degree of ability to cast spells, though not so potent as a true Spikard. It is attuned to the element of Fire.
Drake briefly lost Werewindle to Annadil, but it returned to him after Annadil's death, though shortly thereafter, Drake ended up a captive of Jean Malraux, the Cyberpope, for the forty years between the Annadil and Herald Crises. Since his rescue, he has retained control of it.
