Wyndia is a slave girl brought to Naofumi by the Slave Merchant to help populate his village. For a long time, Naofumi called her Taniko because she reminded him of a character from his world surround by giant worm who live in the wind valley, tani (谷) meaning valley and ko (子) meaning child. She was raised by the Dragon that was killed by Ren.


She is not the type of person who would enthusiastically vie for revenge. Wyndia has shown leadership ability, during the brainwashing incident. Recently, Taniko’s developed a sort of switch where she occasionally becomes very dark and negative, in times like when she extorts bandits and threatens enemies; Naofumi was indirectly responsible for this since he would use such interrogation methods on enemies, thus this eventually rubbed off on both Wyndia and Eclair Seaetto. In the village, she happily plays with Gaelion, the Caterpillands, and the other monsters.

Being raised by a dragon, Wyndia has a fondness for dragons.


From a glance, she has dog ears and a tail.


She was taken care of by the adult Gaelion as a child, along with the rest of his children. When Ren came to slay Gaelion, she was protected along with the other children, and as such survived the incident. However, soon after Gaelion's death, slave drivers arrived and enslaved the survivors from Ren's crusade. Later on she was found by the Slave Dealer and offered to Naofumi, who purchased her to help with his village.


She learned from her father. She's good with magic attacks, among the other slaves this is something that she can take pride in. Her magic seems to concentrate the surrounding energy and release it. Windia, was taught holy water's Ability Restoration by Sadina.
