Wind Song is a one-time-appearing villain in The Venture Bros.
A retired member of the original S.P.H.I.N.X., he was a martial arts specialist, as revealed by his title "master of the fighting arts".
History[edit | edit source]
A former S.P.H.I.N.X. agent who survived the 1987 Pyramid Wars, Wind Song had hid away but seemingly managed to rejoin society and earn what appears to be a fairly well-off, middle-class existence with a wife and son. However, as with all S.P.H.I.N.X. operatives, the organization had planted in his head a chip loaded with cyanide that would go off if he ever betrayed the organization. Following S.P.H.I.N.X.'s dissolution, he knew it would only be a matter of time before the chip wore out and spelled his doom.
After Henchman 21 posted a notification of S.P.H.I.N.X.'s reformation in a heroic guise on Guildslist, Diamond Backdraft notified his friend and fellow former SPHINX operative Wind Song, whom in turned suggested they contact S.P.H.I.N.X. Commander. Although they could not get the Countess to join them, the three ex-S.P.H.I.N.X. operatives schemed a suicide attack to destroy O.S.I., going out in a blaze of glory rather than a whimper. This was due to the micro chips in their brain that kill them in a year.
Although they overpowered 21 and took control of their S.P.H.I.N.X. ship, they were ultimately defeated by a combined team of 21, Brock Samson, Shore Leave, and Hank Venture, the latter wearing the power armor suit which formerly belonged to the Countess. Hank managed to defeat Wind Song in this armor, and he was placed into the custody of the O.S.I.
