Book of Lore

Zephyrs are hostile mobs that float through the sky of the Aether.


Zephyrs spawn during the day but will die as soon as night falls.


Zephyrs will fly down towards the player once they see the player and blow air at the player. This will launch the player into the air and without sufficient armor, the fall damage incurred is usually deadly. Due to this pattern, attacking and killing zephyrs would be far easier, given you can kill them before their wind attack.


  • With perfect timing, Zephyrs can be used to get across gaps you could not normally jump.
  • Zephyrs can easily be killed with Darts since they are not affected by gravity like arrows.
  • If you go under a two block high roof, the Zephyr cannot deal any knockback or fall damage; this makes fighting them much easier. This is, however, only recommended if you have low health and are on the verge of dying as Zephyrs by default do not get close enough for a sword to touch them.
  • Zephyrs have extremely low health, and will die from one hit by a skyroot sword.


  • There is a new night-time version of the Zephyr, called the Tempest.
  • OscarPayn made a concept for the Aether II version of the Zephyrs.
  • In the original Aether mod, Zephyrs had AI behavior similar to Ghasts.
  • One of the messages when loading is "Angering Zephyrs."
  • In Aether I, they would sometimes spawn in Silver Dungeon's boss rooms.
  • In Greek mythology, Zephyrus is the personification of the West Wind. It is described here as "the bringer of light spring and early summer breezes..." Geoffrey Chaucer wrote of the 'sweet breth' of Zephryus, and a soft, gentle breeze may be referred to as a zephyr, as in Shakespeare's Cymbeline (IV, ii): They are as gentle, as zephyrs blowing below the violet, not wagging his sweet head.
