The Whirlwind was an event in the Fallen's ancient history. After the Whirlwind, the Fallen began a new nomadic way of life, living in their massive Ketches and plundering desolate ruins.[1]

The Whirlwind refers to an event similar to humanity's Collapse, wherein the Darkness attacked the Eliksni, and the Traveler abandoned their people.

Shortly after the coming of the Darkness, the Hive, led by Oryx arrived in the Eliksni's solar system to finish off the survivors. Chelchis, Kell of Stone is noted for their final stand against Oryx and his Hive during the Whirlwind, which allowed the rest of the Eliksni to escape their homeworld and survive.
