Kairak (카이락, Kairak) is the deuteragonist of the Korean webtoon series Abide in the Wind. He is one of the last Dragons on the planet and made Reana Forté his Riyenas. He is a 299-year old dragon and the son of Munyak. After placing the entire country into a perpetual blizzard in Season 2, he is infamously known as 'Disaster Kairak' (재해 카이락, Jaehae Kairak).
Kairak is a slender youthful figure of a height of five feet and four inches (164cm). He has long messy black hair, which he later wears in a ponytail, pale white skin, aqua colored eyes, and a scar above his left ankle. He wears a teal shirt with yellow trimmed collar, along with two slits on the side of his waist, white breeches, and black slippers. His facial expression rarely changes, however Kairak does show frustration when other people tries to get too close to Reana.
Kairak is five feet and eight inches tall (175cm). He has longer hair that extends down below his waist, tied in a ponytail, a teal shirt, similar to an Eastern shirt, decorated with yellow trimming along the opening of the shirt, a maroon fabric under the slits of the shirt, white trousers, and black slippers. His expression changed from being stoic to contentment after he grew.
As an adult and conscious form, Kairak has long black hair that extend down to his ankles, no longer in a ponytail, two large gray horns protruding up, and two smaller beige colored horns on each side of his head. He wears a longer teal eastern shirt that reach to his his ankles with slits on the shoulders and front sides of the shirt, beige overcoat with a yellow collar, decorated with teal and maroon tendril pattern near the chest and cuff area, maroon underskirt, and black heeled boots.Kairak makes his first appearance when Reana was purifying him from the Malevolence. After he is seen holding Reana's hand, he then proceeds to change into the Dragon Pearl and absorbs to Reana's body.
In the Epilogue, Kairak greatly resembles his usual adult form, but wears a simple white sleeved button shirt and black trousers instead of the robes shown in the Purification Chamber. He also ties a small section of his hair back with a yellow ribbon. His ears are exposed, rounded in shape, and his expression gentle and genuine.
Though Kairak is usually impassive, he can unexpectedly become violent. He is rather indifferent towards people except for Reana Forté, and is willing to potentially harm or glare at anyone should they try to come into contact with her. He is rather attentive to Reana's well-being and the possible dangers targeting her. Despite being impassive, he shows emotions in his physical and conscious form as his growth progresses.
Kairak's apathetic nature and lack of response cause him to become distant around others due to him not having contact with any other living being for 299 years. He is impassive towards other people and disregards their well-being; as Ralton was being consumed by an Uduk, he responds to Reana by saying, "The strong devour the weak. It is not something we should interfere with". Though he is greatly fond of Reana, he disregards her own personal affairs wth unconcern as he found no meaning in rescuing her father, Roy Forté, stating "there is no reason to protect an empty shell".
Kairak's savage demeanor is shown towards any being he believes will pose a threat to Reana and him as seen in several occasions. He can be merciless without hesitating to attack others with the intent of killing them. Mugi experienced this firsthand after he tries to court Reana and nearly gets killed in the process.
Kairak is shown to be perceptive of people's desires. He notes to Reana of Karin and Mugi's intentions of using her for their own personal desires.
Kairak is very devoted to Reana, following her and listening to what she has to say. He shows his devotion by being at Reana's side; never leaving his eyes from her. Proof of Kairak's commitment is seen when he made many attempts to hold her hand. Before Reana and Kairak departed Middle, he tells her, "My life is yours". He listens to Reana's orders as he follows an unconscious Ralton, carried by the Mirage Beast Hunters.
As the story progresses, Kairak begins to openly show emotions (such as jealousy) and gets more possessive of Reana. Though it has been said many times that Dragons are pure conscious beings with their feelings severed, according to Didan, Kairak begins to develop emotions and free will at an alarmingly fast rate. He has claimed that he cannot control his emotions and often act out without much thought. It is heavily implied that his future self will be influenced by these emotions.
As the last dragon on Earth, Kairak was taught at a young age that he must hurry to become a mature dragon in order to meet up with the other dragons who had left the planet. For nearly three centuries he lived in the center of a forest protected within a barrier by a large tree.
Season 1 Episode 1: RiyenasEdit
Kairak is first seen in his humanoid form and is attacked by a mysterious Contractor for his Dragon Pearl. Although Kairak is poisoned by 'Malevolence' (a fatal poison to dragons) from the assailant, he manages to fend the Dragon Knight off by reverting to his original dragon form and destroys the parasite's host. As Kairak is succumbs to the poison, he meets Reana before Didan (Kairaks servant) informs her to use the Purification ritual to save Kairak. When the ritual successfully rids Kairak from the poison, he reverts back to his humanoid form and waits for Reana to wake up. The Dragon Pearl now resides in Reana's left hand; Kairak now must stay in close proximity to Reana since the Pearl is his source of life.
