Is Pei grandfather a Zephyrite or Aetherblade.

Glint was a well known figure on Tyria for hundreds of years, was actively trying to help the world during that time, and even made a grand master plan to save Tyria from the Elder Dragons. The Zephyrites were the successors of the Brotherhood of the Dragon Dwarven group that had aided Glint in her in that task for quite awhile before the end of GW1.

Soo-Won spent most of existence hiding under the oceans away from the other Elder Dragons, making her virtually unknown to the world, and only came around to help Cantha at Kuunavang's request around 100 years prior.

Its no wonder that the Zephyrites valued Glint given everything she did, and all of nothing Soo-won did for most of recorded history.

Weren't the Zephyrites founded by Glints followers? Why would they value Soo Won over Glint?

 

Yes. They were originally the human elements of the Brotherhood of the Dragon, a group of dwarves and humans who worked with and served Glint. Kinda like the Crystal Bloom is for Aurene.

I'm sure that the Zephyrites will have some respect or opinion about Soo Won, especially now knowing that she is Aurene's great grandmother, which was not widely known until the expansion. In the past, it makes sense that the Zephyrites would not have had much of an opinion. They only recently came to Cantha, and by that time Soo Won was more of a mythological figure than an active figure. Zhaitan's tsunami was over 100 years ago, and it is very likely that no one had seen Soo Won in a few generations minus those working at the lab.

Humans were never part of the brotherhood.

Humans were added to the brotherhood after the dwarves started falling to the rite. They wanted humans to continue their mission since they knew that they all would eventually undertake the rite. This lore was added to the Zephyrites during one of the Labrynthine Cliffs event times.

In Arborstone a child named Pei is greeted by an old man that seems to be his grandfather.  The old man explains he went away a long time ago on an airship.  Is he Zephyrite or Aetherblade?

As mentioned, the dialogue is naming him as a Zephyrite. Aetherblades didn't exist until 1326 AE, and had only appeared in Cantha during the second half of Season 4 (in 1331/1332 AE).

 

The Zephyrites are known to have visited Cantha in 1326/1327 AE, between Bazaar of the Four Winds/Cutthroat Politics in Season 1, and Festival of the Four Winds in Season 2's prologue. This was 8-9 years prior to EoD. This is likely when the old man joined them, which is also when the Zephyrites smugged springers and raptors into Cantha, though it's plausible that the Zephyrites visited before then too.

There were a lot of Canthans amongst the Zephyrites.  They would have never heard of Glint.  However, they did know of Soo Won saving Kaineng.

Glint has a very long history in humanity's stories. Every human from Tyria, Elona, and Cantha would have heard of her.

Furthermore, the Zephyrites was formed near the end of the dwarven lives, 200 years ago, and this would have happened nearly 100 years before Soo-Won saved Kaineng from Zhaitan's awakening.

The only Canthan Zephyrites who would revere Soo-Won more would be those who joined in the 1326/1327 visit, like the old man, but they'd be few and still a century since Soo-Won's intervention - and as evident in EoD, not all Canthans are reverent to Soo-Won.

Similar to the "true purpose" of the Zephyrites, the lineage between Elder Dragons was likely kept hidden, only known to the four Masters (now three as they never elevated a new Master of Peace). That said, Canthans seem to be somewhat aware that Soo-Won is the mother of Elder Dragons, so they should have learned such during their visit to Cantha in 1326/1327? At the very least, it's now very weird how none of them talked about the benevolent Elder Water Dragon since their re-appearance in Season 2. I mean, they did have more pressing matters during Season 2, but they've been around ever since so it's a bit... weird, now...

I guess they'll just handwave it the same way they handwaved the mount thing. "We thought you already knew" (meanwhile in Festival of the Four Winds 2014: "The Elder Dragons are mindless evils, they can't help that they kill people!")

Yes and no.

Humans were recruited by the Brotherhood, but were not part of it - those recruited humans became the first Zephyrites. Some of those first Zephyrites would then be chosen by Forgotten to become Exalted. Darc is right: humans were never part of the Brotherhood of the Dragon. But humans were recruited to carry on the legacy - in the form of the Zephyrites.
