It does not always portray death, Magus sensed it before they fought at his castle, but no one dies there (or is supposed too, if you don't suck :) ). I have a feeling that certain people influence the wind, but who exactly I do not know.

But doesn't the whole castle disappear? That would make a lot dead Mystics...

Maybe the Black wind is just the Zeal family's vibes?

Maybe Queen Zeal feels the Black Wind when shes about to get cramps and PMS  :shock:

Direa has the same power to see the wind that surrounds people, although she doesn't call it "black" wind.  So the power seems to exist outside the Zeal family.

Maybe there are different magnitudes to the wind. Maybe the wind is an omen of battle, and when it gets strong enough, then that means someone will die.

Hmm I didn't think of that. Works for me :)

It originates from Middle-Eastern lore; it's like to bad aura or wind that blows when someone has died or is near death.

Along the lines of Magus/Janus having psychological problems, the balck wind could be a projection of his psychological state (that may be amplified with his magic).  Sort of like Donnie Darko and the time spears.

What are you talkin' about? Donnie was a superhero...

Also, if it were just Magus's mental state, would it also transfer to Schala?

How the Hell could Magus's mental state transfer to Schala? Schala seems to have alot of mental power, this is proved in how long it took for the DoT to even try to absorb her, which still didn't happen for like what? 10000 years?.

Also, I don't remember Magus' castle being destroyed. In 1000AD, the castle is there, but it has like a moat around it so you cant get into it. It was probably abandoned and run down after Magus "dissapeared".

What exactly are you talking about?  I never said anything about Schala.  

And although Donnie was symbolically a superhero (as is Magus if you hold Joseph Campbell's analysis to be plausible), he did have a different psychological aspect of reality, not necessarily a problem I guess.  
What I was trying to say was that most of the great "seers" of reknown were seen as schizo's or as psychologically disturbed, whether they really did have problems is of little importance.  All I'm saying is that Magus shares some similarities with Donnie, in that both seem (from the outside) to have problems, both have the ability to see the future, and both have great power.

I think V_Translanka is referring to the fact that Schala feels the Black Wind too, even though she doesn't appear as nuts as Janus...
