During the Chaos War, Cloudhawk's mother was killed by a Shadow-Wight. Due to the nature of shadow-wights no one can remember her at all. The only way they know she existed at all was because he existed and obviously had a mother. After this, his father became dour and rarely smiled. In 386 AC after hearing of his father's death, Wanderer left the Qué-Shu with Cloudhawk and traveled south.
Cloudhawk with his father led some of the plainsmen of the Plains of Dust.
