Storm Spirits (Anemoi Thuellai in Greek and Venti in Latin) are creatures of chaos that Aeolus keeps locked away in the hollows of his island. They were created when Typhon was defeated by Zeus and later Poseidon. They serve Gaea in The Heroes of Olympus series.
Dylan is a storm spirit sent to kill Jason Grace, Leo Valdez, and Piper McLean. He proceeds by calling forth two more of his brothers. All three of them then proceed to attack the young demigods and the satyr, Coach Hedge, in the name of a mysterious mistress. Two of them are easily killed by Jason, but Dylan escapes taking Coach Hedge as captive when Hedge protects Leo from Dylan.Later, Jason, Leo, and Piper visit Medea's mall where they find the storm spirits, a captive Hedge, and learned that she helped kill Leo's mother years earlier. In order to see Aeolus and convince him to help them, Jason, Leo, and Piper capture the spirits to present to him. When they finally arrive at his island, the wind master has them imprisoned before releasing the spirits to kill them on Gaea's orders.
Later on, at the Wolf House, they ambush the demigods under the command of Khione. Jason tames one of them, names it Tempest, and uses its power to dispel all the others. Somehow, it managed to survive Hera's burst of energy when she revealed her divine form though it's current whereabouts are unknown.
In addition to their inherent immortality, storm spirits possess the following abilities:
- The ability to fly at the speed of wind
- Multiple storm spirits can merge to form a larger, singular one
Storm spirits have two forms. Whichever one they take depends on how chaotic they are. They can appear as either horse or human-like beings. As horses, they have dark storm-cloud bodies and manes crackling with electricity. As human-like beings, they appear as boys with smoky wings and eyes sparking with electricity.
