The Professor of Wind, also known as the Professor of Windtouchers, was the dean of the Academy of Wind in Sanctaphrax. An old and pompous academic, the Professor of Wind frequently entered into absurd arguments with the Professor of Cloud. When the Anchor Chain was severed, the Professor of Wind was still on the Sanctaphrax rock, and he was lost in Open Sky.

During the First Age of Flight, in the time of the First Scholars, Aurelius Ventilix was the Head Professor at the Academy of Wind. He presided over the installation of cliff-marble, ultimately resulting in the Academy of Wind Massacre.
