Hm~ Did you miss me?
The El Master of Wind. One of the six protectors of El who worked under the El Lady. The power of the wind energy keeps the universe in motion.
Long before Soren became the El Master, as a child he experience some form of trauma. The memories from his experience haunted him for part of his childhood, believing that he might even be cursed.
After the El exploded, the El Masters decided to pour their energy into the scattered El. In the process, Ventus created the Wind El, and fell into a deep slumber in an unknown location. However, Lincy did not fall asleep alongside Ventus, allowing her to search for a method to awaken him.
With help from Lincy and Rena, Ventus woke up and sought to investigate what had happened to Elrianode and suspected that the Henir Cult was the likely culprit. He then started searching for traces of Elrianode itself. During his search he came across a band of Henir cultists, he started trailing them and when Elrianode was reawakened, he followed them to Elrianode.
Chapter 28: Restored Elrianode
Ventus followed the Henir Order into the Water Dragon's Sanctum. He saw the mysterious man nab the Primal El which was sealed deep in the sanctum. As the mysterious man made his escape and left a trait of transformed minions in his path, Ventus tailed behind him without him even noticing. When the mysterious man was giving him monologue to the El Search Party before fleeing the sanctum, Ventus was able to steal the Primal El and replace it with a fake without anybody even being aware that he was there.
Chapter 29: Invasion of the Order
After the El Search Party defeated the Spatio Reaper in Elrianode City the group were resting after the battle. However they had let their guard down too soon as the Spatio Reaper readied itself to self destruct with Rena with range. The creature self destructed but Ventus was there to save Rena. The group was suspicious of the Ventus at first demanding him to identify himself while Rena began to feel a familiar energy coming from him. Ventus offer the group assistance, especially towards the ladies. Aisha denied his offer, then he insisted telling the group his real identity as the Wind Master before introducing Lincy. Rena immediately recognized Lincy, and Ventus soon realized that the woman he had saved was Rena, the same girl who helped Lincy reawaken him. Ventus expressed his joy of finally meeting her and starts to flirt with her to Lincy's dismay. To celebrate their union, he gave Rena the Primal El that he nabbed from the mysterious man. The group were shocked and began to suspect Ventus, however Ventus tells the group how he got the shard back. Eve and the rest of the group noticed the relic produced an unimpressive amount of El energy and wondered why it was so important. Ventus agreed and requested to talk to Denif about it, calling Denif "old man" at first.
Chapter 30: Henir's Passage
Aisha asks Ventus on why he was in the area, Ventus admits to having been awake for quite some time already, telling the group that it was due to Lincy and Rena's help. When Rena heard this she suddenly realized that the person Lincy was trying to save all those years ago was actually Master Ventus himself. He thanks Rena and Lincy gets a little jealous and starts hitting Ventus. Chung came in after going back to look for Solace, Chung tries to talk with Elesis in private, however Lincy was easily able to overhear the group and told Ventus that Solace was in the area. This shocked Chung and he asks if Ventus was angry at Solace. Ventus says that he understands what Solace had gone through and doesn't hold the events against him, but tells the not to tell Denif he had said that.
Ventus arrives in Elrianode alongside the El Search Party and greets Denif with a warm hug, which Denif swiftly declines before stating that he is clad to see the Wind Master again. Denif asks Ventus what he was doing with the El Search Party, Ventus explains that he was awakened by Lincy and Rena about two years ago and had been investigating Henir's Order ever since. Ara tells Denif that Ventus had retrieved the relic back from Henir's Order, Ventus hands over the stone and tells Denif to investigate the bottom of the stone revealing ancient text. Aisha translates the text but can't make sense of it assuming that the message in incomplete. Ventus stays adamant that the stone is of great importance if Henir's Order went through such lengths to get it.
Chapter 31: Interdimensional Colossus and...
The Mysterious Man having appeared right on the El Tower's front porch, Denif quickly called for Ventus to help him aid in fending off incoming monsters. Ventus admitted he was a bit rusty but he was excited for the warm up. He soon realized that somebody unexpected had arrived. Solace and Hernia appeared before the two other El Masters. Ventus expressed his job to see an old acquaintance and even more so the El Lady who he thought would still by in Elysion. Addressing Solace, Ventus contemplated the time it has been since their last meeting, he jokingly stated two years, but soon retracted knowing that Solace wasn't in the same slumber they had been, that he had been active for centuries. Ventus comments that Solace had not changed a bit, still being the blunt person he had always been, Solace returned the sentiments that Ventus had not changed either. Ventus tells Solace that he had forgotten to say something before punching Solace to everybody's surprise. He exclaimed that, that was for the hardships they had to go through because Solace's mistake. Then punches Solace again for making Denif worry. Solace accepted what was coming to him. Hernia told Denif that she wished to give herself to the El in order to protect it. Ventus asks Solace if he had agreed to her plan, Solace told them that he could not sever the El Lady's will in the end. Ventus warns the El Lady of the severity of her choice, if there is anything she may regret, that he does't want a repeat of what happened before. Denif agrees to Ventus's sentiments and insists Hernia not continue. Hernia pleaded but the Priestesses soon arrived to talk her out.
Once Hernia was convinced to place her trust in the El Priestesses and work together. Ventus called the sentimental time short called everybody to their stations to either maintain the El, or protect it from the monsters. After the El Search Party defeated Hennon, as a last ditch effort and a means of testing out the Primal El's power, he used a Dark El fragment he had and turned into the Interdimensional Colossus. The Priestesses saw the beast and quickly alerted Denif and Ventus. Ventus commented on the gravity of the situation now, commenting that they are running out of options. Denif realizing a monster on this scale posed a huge danger to the El Tower told everybody to help him produce a barrier around the El Tower.
After the El Search Party defeated the Interdimensional Colossus, the monsters attacking the El Tower soon began to dissipate and things quieted down. He thanked the other Masters, Priestesses, and the El Lady for helping protect the El Tower. Ventus gives his thanks to all the Priestesses in his flirtatious way, which Denif quickly scolds him for, telling him to act more Master like again and Lincy starts attacking Ventus again out of jealousy. Denif then directs his attention to Solace and Hernia, telling them that they don't have to say in Elrianode anymore. Hernia insists on staying but Denif is stern on letting them go, telling that he has realized the cycle of sacrifice the El Lady faced was wrong, that he believes in the El Search Party to find another way. Ventus jumps in and nudges the two to leave Elrianode and get together. Denif annoyed by Ventus's crudeness, let his statement slide just this one time. Ventus laughs it off.
Chapter 32: Recuperation
After the battle with Hennon was done and over, Ventus began to scout the ruins the city and the surrounding area. During his scouting, he sensed a location of an Elriabrunnr in a cave outside of the city. On his way back to Elrianode, during his thoughts, he notices the El Search Party talking and snoops in on their conversation, catching Aisha by surprise. Elsword tells Ventus that after their fight with Hennon, the group has realized that they need to become stronger for the road ahead. Ventus hears their request and sees the determination in them, he leads them to Denif who could tell them what they should do. Returning to Elrianode, Ventus reports that he had discovered an Elriabrunnr in a cave, and suspects it to be the Forgotten Elrian Sanctum. Denif is impressed by Ventus for finding the Sanctum, but also reprimands him for leaving his post. After Denif fills in the El Search Party about the Elriabrunnr, Ventus volunteers to lead them to the Elriabrunnr.
After leading the party to the Forgotten Elrian Sanctum, Ventus returns to Elrianode. Back at the El Tower, Sasha wonders where the other El Masters might be, Denif believing that they can't be inside Henir's Barrier at the current time. Ventus jokes and hopes they aren't fooling around, Denif grudgingly suggested that Ventus go search for them if he is complaining about it. Ventus tells Denif to relax. The El Masters and El Priestesses talk about the journeys they have all faced thus far and the traditions of the El Order. Ventus laments that while the El Masters were strong users of the El, they were trained to defend the El and El Lady as opposed to maintaining it. Denif and Ventus then explain how the El Order began to train priestesses to work under the El Masters. Ventus commenting about one of Anduran's predecessors having a bit of a temper before Lincy strikes him. Darkmoon and Ignia both begin to regret their failings as Priestess of the El, but Ventus tells them to smile. With their talk finished, Anduran suggests they help her make he famed vegetable stew, Ventus jumps at the thought and helps retrieve ingredients.
After the El Search Party returned from the Sanctum, Ventus immediately sense that they have become stronger.
Chapter 33: To the Demon Realm
After Add's plan failed to show any results in Debrian Laboratory, the group returned to the tower with some potential breakthrough theories they had. Upon reaching the tower, they were seeking Denif, but Ventus tells the group that he was out scouting the city.
When Denif returned, the group told him and the priestesses everything they had been hypothesizing about. Believing that the El's power may be to interfere with traveling between worlds. Ventus saying that the goddess may have created the El in order to stop the Demon Realm from crossing over. The El Search Party requested to search under the tower for something they could use a gateway, Ventus telling Denif that nobody had never really searched below the El. After Chung revealed that they had briefly been under the El when Ara fell in, Ventus tells Denif that they had found something that appeared to be a seal. Realizing the possibility the group went down below the El.
Inside the Labyrinth of Ruin, Ventus couldn't really believe that this place had been under them this whole time, that they probably would've never found it if it wasn't for Ara. Ara felt bad for her clumsiness, but Ventus tells her that he wasn't trying to reprimand her or anything. When they all reached the seal, Denif told the group that they won't, and shouldn't break the seal, but with their combined energy, may be able to pry it open just large enough to let the El Search Party slip through. Ventus warns the group that they may no be able to return. Denif, Ventus, and the others were able to make a small opening in the seal, just large enough for the El Search Party to enter before the gateway closed behind them.
Chapter 35: Cradle of Sin
After the El Search Party had already made their way to the Demon Realm, Ventus and Denif had begun to discuss among each other how exactly the El Search Party may return back to Elrios. Eventually an idea was met to give them a Wind Stone which they can sense when the El Search Party returns to the seal underneath the El, this would allow them to know when they should pry open the seal and let them back into Elrios. In order to deliver the Wind Stone to the El Search Party, Ventus agreed to take it to them himself. Denif had also had suspicions that Rosso may be in the Demon Realm and tasked Ventus to seek the other Master while there. Denif and the priestesses used their power to open the seal once again, Ventus and Lincy made his way through. Traveling through the passage of Henir.
After crossing the Henir passage in between realms, they arrived in the demon forest and encountered dark elves. With the aid of Lincy, who knew the ancient elven tongue, they learned the name of the forest, Varnitas Eldimyr, which meant "False Home". The dark elves took Ventus to their outpost, they were suspicious of him but did not attack. On the way, he noticed countless traps being armed, he began to suspect the possibility that the dark elves were planning to go to war. Ventus was able to speak with Edith and learned of the El Search Party's deeds and was told they had gone to the Spirit Asylum. Heading towards the asylum, Ventus felt a familiar fiery energy, which he could not mistake being that of the Fire Master Rosso. He was genuinely surprised to sense his fellow master, but was even more surprised that Denif's hunch was correct. Meeting with Nephilim Lord, he learned that El Search Party had gone to deal with the tower off in the distance, but very soon after the tower collapsed. The two made their way over to the tower where the fire and demonic energy which had ran rampant suddenly calmed. Ventus spotted the El Search Party and his fellow El Master just as the fight had settled.
Elsword was reaching out for Rosso but Ventus appeared to advice him not to because Rosso's body was emanating a lot of heat. The El Search Party were surprised to see the Wind Master appear out of nowhere, Elsword also asks if Ventus knew the person they had just rescued. Ventus playfully tell them that they were old friends, Rosso interjects telling him to shut up and help him up. He then explains to them the reason for his arrival and the plan they had devised for when they wished to return to Elrios, giving Rena a Wind Spirit Stone he could detect once they approach the seal again. Later when the El Search Party tried to ask Rosso why he was in the Demon Realm, he refused to tell them, Ventus coming in and insisting they take Rosso to Elrianode and that he could fill them in later.
Answer to Belief
Ventus with Rosso in tow goes back the way he came, into the Cave of Death and through the Labyrinth of Ruin, the way back however turned to be more cumbersome than before, with the monsters beginning to act more aggressively. Ventus manages to stave off the beings of chaos and they successfully make it to the other side of the labyrinth. Denif senses Ventus's approach and with the aid of the priestesses and Gaia, opens the seal beneath the Large El. Upon arriving, he greets the newly arrived Gaia and briefly reports to Denif, noting that the Henir realm between has become more hectic on the way back, Denif worries for the El Search Party when they decide to return as well. Ventus returns the concern but then turns around to suggest they celebrate the return of the El Masters who were present after the El Explosion.
The festivities were cut short when Rosso and Ignia begin to argue with each other. Ventus initially tried to calm the Fire Master to no success, eventually it comes to Denif to orders Gaia to restrain Rosso. With the heated Fire Master taken away to get his wounds tended to, Laby remarks about Rosso's personality being like that of fire. Ventus affirmed the sentiment but also expresses surprise on Ignia's part. He notices Ignia had become down after the argument and tells her that she had done great to butt heads with the Fire Master, telling her that the best way to confront Rosso is with brutal honesty, that doing so catches him off guard. Ignia wonders if the first Fire Priestess was also like that, in which Ventus tells her that the first Fire Priestess actually went about ignoring Rosso entirely unless it was important. Ignia once again wonders if she had done something wrong, but even Denif assures her she did the best she could've.
You and I Are One
After Laby had spoken with Rosso, she had begun to ponder if she must go to the Demon Realm for answers, but focuses on what she should do with Nisha. Ventus overheard their conversation and just like the wind, poofed by her side without her even noticing. He properly introduces himself to the girl. Laby begins to ask him about his relationship with the wind, and he tell her in a cryptic manor of how he and the wind are one, but still separate entities, like partners. Laby is only more confused by the Wind Master's riddles, Ventus suggests she trains until and answer comes to her, like Gaia would, so he tells her of the Forgotten Elrian Sanctum and Laby goes off. Lincy wonders why he did such a thing since she knew that he was still suspicious of the girl himself, Ventus merely replies that maybe he wanted to act like a proper old-timer and help out his colleague's student.
After Laby returned from her training with new resolve to seek out the Demon Realm, she consulted Ventus for information. Ventus decides to tell her what he knew and experienced in his brief time in the Demon Realm not long ago. By the time his concluded his story, he had told her the the El Search Party must be on their way back to Elrianode as they spoke and would appear in due time. Ventus noticed the girl still had many questions she wished to ask, she decided that it was not the time for her to leave just yet.
Meeting the El Search Party
When the El Search Party make their trip back from the Demon Realm, Ventus alerts the others of their approach. Denif gathers all the masters and priestesses to the seal to pry it open once more. Ignia attempts to make amends with Rosso, only to fall apart into bickering, Ventus comments on the events but urges they prepare as the El Search Party drew near. Once open, Ventus sees that Henir's Realm was even more chaotic then when he had crossed. As the others kept the seal open, Ventus looked in and saw the El Search Party halted by the monsters.
Chapter 40: Another Deal
As the El Masters prepared to find a way to recover the El Search Party, Gaia wanted to set out in search for the portal engineer, but Ventus tells Gaia that he'd be the better choice to retrieve the engineer. Gaia pleas to let him set off but then all the masters sense a disturbance of Henir energy. Ventus realizes if must be some type of portal. Anduran approached the masters with the news that the El Search Party had suddenly returned, though they were injured.
Chapter 41: A Wounded Return
Once the El Search Party managed to return to Elrianode, the El Masters and Priestesses were quick to aid them and tend to their wounds. The El Search Party were eager to return back to the Demon Realm as soon as possible but Ventus notified them that the seal below the El had been permanently shut. Vexed for options, Elesis suggests they ask Rosso for knowledge, though Ventus was quick to discourage that idea but wasn't willing to at least let them try, telling them where the Fire Master was. He also informs the group that Gaia was planning to reach out to Calonne just before they arrived when Laby made mention of Calonne and the portal. Suddenly, Rena collapses and Ventus takes her to see Darkmoon. Rose and Zero begin to speculate on their own methods of communicating with the Demon Realm through El wavelengths and requires Ventus's help for her plans which he agrees to.
Ventus takes Rose the an Elriabrunnr and Zero deduces that they may be able to produce the proper wavelengths if they spar with one another. They two do battle and Zero manages to get some response though it was just incomprehensible radio noise. The two duke it out once more with Ventus using even more of his strength, though the results were the same. After another round there were some detectable differences but it was still indecipherable. Ventus and Zero begin to worry about Rose pushing herself as well as the feasibility of their efforts, noting that they also lost communication with Empyrean. In a final attempt, Ventus and Lincy merged with one another to use their full power, this time they begun to receive some type of message which they managed to make out a message, "his is Au--ra. We've found the soul. Return immediately, Rigomor is safe. Do not reply. They may be monitoring us.". Speculating what the message means, Ventus wishes it will be of use to them.
The Master returned to Elrianode to check up on Rena, catching her by surprise. Lincy begins to express worry if Rena experienced something in the Demon Realm, expressing that Elves are especially vulnerable to demonic energy. Ventus vouches for his companion, noting that it does not take long for elves to get corrupted. Rena is adamant to return to the Demon Realm, Ventus strikes a deal to wager her decision on a 1 hour spar against him. Rena agrees and they sneak out of Elrianode to an Elriabrunnr. Rena agrees to not go the Demon Realm if she loses and Ventus wagers a secret. Due to the Elriabrunnr, Rena started to feel rejuvenated as they fought, Ventus was intrigued by her enthusiasm to save the world, even more than himself. Rena tells him about her experiences and how her journey has opened her horizons a lot. Lincy tries to dissuade her her again but Rena recalls her friend Lincy and how she is living a life her friend Lua would be proud of. Ventus noting a bit of survivor's guild within Rena. Filled with new conviction, Rena sparred with the Wind Master, their fight persuaded Lincy and filled her with confidence in Rena. Upholding his end of the bargain, Ventus and Lincy tell the secret they had been holding, that they had sensed a normal Elf within the demon realm, and they wished for Rena to investigate it for them when she returned. Rena was intirgued but also realized she had been played and the outcome would've been the same regardless if she had won or lost. They return to Elrianode but forgot to sneak back in and were caught by Gloria and scolded by Anduran.
Chapter 43: Preparation
At around the same time the El Search Party all reunited back in Elrianode, Denif and the other present Masters met with the priestesses. At this meeting, Denif reveals to the priestesses the truth about the El Explosion, that is was Ebalon who caused the incident, as an agent of Henir's Order. Ignia wondered why it was that history only mentioned Solace and the El Lady. Ventus explains that the El Masters lost credibility when news that Solace had run off with the El Lady in the wake of the Great Explosion, that they already had to essentially beg to make the Elemental El, revealing Ebalon's involvement would've only made things worse for them. The news made Darkmoon realize the Moon Priestess sacrificed herself to make the small Moon El. Rosso saying they shouldn't feel pity, Ventus remarking his words and Rosso's actions when leaving behind the Fire Priestess Fanelia. Ventus finds is curious that the Sun Priestess survived, Denif remained silent, which makes him realize that Solace was aiding from the sidelines and noting is couldn't have been easy for the Sun Priestess. Gloria and Darkmoon noting the bond between the two priestesses in the wake. Moving on to their current situation, Denif asks if Ventus had any new information about Henir's Order which he unfortunately did not. Artea was uncertain why the group would not make any significant actions till recently. Rosso brings up if they should inform the El Search Party which Denif decides against, choosing to continue their investigation separately.
Ventus and Lincy in Spirit Sanctum.
- Ventus wrote the Skill Notes Concentrated Air Technique and Weakness Detected.

- Ventus's first name is revealed to be Soren in the same webtoon.
- Ventus claims he was awoken by Rena and Lincy roughly 2 years prior to the seal over Elrianode becoming undone, even though Rena helped Lincy wake him up before meeting Elsword and Aisha, which happened at least 4~5 years ago.

- Ventus spars with Rena to test her determination and aids Rose with her efforts to communicate with the Demon Realm during the Master Class update.
- A connection between both can be drawn due to him being an elf with a connection to the spirits, as well as being skilled in long-ranged combat.
