Drake claims to have made Werewindle after hanging from Yig. Whether this is true remains to be seen, although one theory of the origin of the blades states that all of the elemental blades are shadows of the Primal Pattern Blade. If so, Drake is lying or confused. The truth remains to be seen.
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. Since his rescue, he has retained control of it.
