Kushiel is one of the four Elder Wyrms still alive from the First Age. He was the mount of the Ancient Ashura Bellanna. For a long time no one knew how Kushiel escaped death or banishment with Ashura, it was only with her return that she revealed that when she had been knocked off of him during the battle he had fled the wraith of the gods. This put something of twist in his reputation as he was getting a name for himself for his sheer deadliness until then. He has not shown his face anywhere near Ashura since she explained what had happened.
