From the Back of the Book:
A Creature of Legend
Loose upon the winds of the tempest, astride his evil black steed, is a creature of the storm. It is said you can see him galloping upon the gray storm clouds, urging the winds to greater ferocity. When his anger is especially fierce, he descends to the earth to wreak havoc, leaving a trail of flaming hoofprints behind.
Some say he was a man whose passion overcame him, others say that he is a foul demon, a Horseman of the Apocalypse. The Magus Grimgoth insists that he is an elemental, a magical incarnation of the storm itself. But whatever they think he is, they all know him as...The Stormrider
