The most powerful Sapa guild, founded by Cheon Ma Sin Gun.

They defeated many Jongpa guilds and established Sapa as the fourth major power of Murim. Black Wind's ultimate goal is to unite Murim under their banner. They are well-known for their discipline, fighting prowess and their all-black uniform.

Black Wind Order is organized into 7 divisions, each division is dedicated to a disciple of Cheon Ma Sin Gun. The 4th division is under direct control of Cheon Ma Sin Gun and acts as judges and regulators of Black Wind Order.

     Cheon Ma Sin Gun's Disciples/Đệ Tử Thiên Mã Tướng Quân 
Six warriors hand-picked by Cheon Ma Sin Gun to inherit his martial arts, they're all powerful martial artists and respected/feared throughout the Murim. Each of them is protected by a division of Black Wind Order. In order of seniority, they are:
  • Baek Gang
  • Do Won-Cheon
  • Jin Pung Baek
  • Cho Un-hyun
  • Choi Sang-hwe
  • Han Bi Kwang
Noted that this order is based on the time Cheon Ma Sin Gun accepted them as disciple. For example, Choi Sang-hwe is younger than Han Bi Kwang but Cheon Ma Sin Gun trained him before Han Bi Kwang, so Choi Sang-hwe is still Kwang's martial brother.

Baek Gang/Bách Khương/The Masked Man.
Cheon Ma Sin Gun's first disciple, he is the last to be revealed. Not much is known about his background. He is the descendant of Hwanjong, a clan of Sinji that specializes in Ki manipulation. Cheon Ma Sin Gun sent him to Sinji for a secret mission. He is an incredibly powerful martial artist, one of the strongest in the series. He assisted Han Bi Kwang when he entered Sinji and saved his life when Jaha Masin nearly killed him.

After the previous Hwanjon died, he is selected as the next Hwanjon, the leader of Hwanjong.

Tropes associated with Baek Gang

Do Won-Cheon/Đào Nguyệt Thiên
Cheon Ma Sin Gun's second disciple, in charge of daily operations of Black Wind Order. He is calm, collected, highly intelligent and extremely cold and ruthless. His influence among Black Wind Order and Sapa as a whole is second only to Cheon Ma Sin Gun. There are rumours that he will succeed Cheon Ma Sin Gun as supreme commander of Black Wind. A man shrouded in mystery, nobody knows what his motives are or what he is planning.

He has collaborated with Sinji for unknown reasons.

Tropes associated with Do Won-Cheon

  • Cain and Abel: Plotting the demise of Han Bi Kwang and Jin Pung Baek.
  • Faux Affably Evil:
    • He is polite even when snapping your necks.
    • A subordinate asked him what his plan for Han Bi Kwang is. He casually answered that he could tell him but the minion had to commit suicide immediately after to keep the plan a secret. He quickly apologized and backed away.
  • Neck Snap: Can do this telekinetically.
  • Nerves of Steel: When Jin Pung Baek threatened to kill him to take his position, he simply laughed it off. He is the only character shown negotiating with Sinji's representative on equal ground, considered their reputation.
  • Xanatos Gambit: Pulled one in the Song Mu Guild arc
    • He planted a mole in Song Mu Guild and instructed him to tell Song Mu Guild that a Sapa guild is keeping the Demon Face Armor, resulting in Song Mu Guild attacking the Sapa guild and taking the armor. The mole also caused mistrust and unrest in Song Mu Guild and especially between Yu Won-chan and his brother Yu Seung Bin, weakening Song Mu Guild against Black Wind's impending attack.
    • He used this as evidence for Jongpa's aggression against Sapa and advised Cheon Ma Sin Gun to destroy Song Mu Guild in retaliation. Cheon Ma Sin Gun agreed and sent Jin Pung Baek to attack Song Mu Guild, which is also in Do Won-Cheon's calculation.
    • His plan is for Jin Pung Baek and Song Mu Guild to duke it out. If Jin Pung Baek wins, he would get rid of a powerful Jongpa guild and potentially start a new Jongpa-Sapa Guild. If Jin loses, he get rid of a rival to his position. The best outcome is that Jin dies and Song Mu Guild severely weakened so he could swoop in and take the credit. Too bad Han Bi Kwang intervened and ruined his plan.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Killed his underlings because they might blow his dealings with Sinji.

Jin Pung Baek/Dân Bách Phong
Cheon Ma Sin Gun's third disciple and the most feared one since he tends to leave behind a bunch of corpses wherever he goes. Cheon Ma Sin Gun saved his life when he was a boy and took him as his disciple, sensing his potential. He's responsible for the destruction of Me Yuijin's guild and family. He is afflicted with a rare condition called Nine Shadow Arteries which increases his Ki but reduces his life span and causes him immense pain, hence his rather pessimistic personality. Arrogant, prideful and fearless, he's nonetheless a honorable martial artist that respect people who show courage and determination.

He made his debut in Song Mu Guild arc, acting under Cheon Ma Sin Gun's command to destroy Song Mu Guild. Later, he appeared in Sinji arc to assist his brother Han Bi Kwang.

  • Drowning My Sorrows: Often seen drinking to numb his pain.

  • Kick the Dog: When the fight between Han Bi Kwang and Yu Won-chan ended in draw, he refused the deal and ordered Black Wind force to attack. When Kwang protested, he beat the shit out of him. Then, he attacked Kwang's unconscious body to spite Dam Hwa Rin and Yu Won-chan.
  • Kick the Son of a Bitch: He casually slapped and berated Cho Un-hyun for insubordination.
  • Kill Me Now, or Forever Stay Your Hand: When Me Yujin found out he killed her family, he offered her a chance to kill him in his weakened state before he recovered, or she would never have that chance again. She refused.
  • One-Man Army; He can wipe out whole guild by himself. Cheon Ma Sin Gun was so confident in his ability that he sent him alone into Sinji to help Han Bi Kwang.
  • Revenge: He wants to destroy Jongpa for killing his girlfriend.
  • Shockwave Stomp: Steps of Heavenly Demon Emperor.
  • Start of Darkness: At first, he followed Cheon Ma Sin Gun just to become strong to protect his childhood friend/love interest Hye Hwa. Then Jongpa force attacked his home village and killed his girlfriend. He managed to find Hye Hwa, but her injuries were too severe and she died in his arms. Before dying, she told him that she loved him ever since they were kids. This led to the big change in his personality where he seeks out revenge against Jongpa and becomes a ruthless killing machine.
  • The Dreaded
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: He used to be a farmer boy until Cheon Ma Sin Gun found him.

Cho Un-hyun/Siêu Văn Hiến

Yeob Min Cheon dreamed to become the leader of a third force of Murim, opposing both Sapa and Jongpa. To accomplish this, he infiltrated Ho Hyub Gok and imprisioned the master Gwak Jin Hyeon.
