Main Characters

  • Varian Wrynn - The King of Stormwind. He was featured as the main protagonist throughout volumes 1-3, though during volume 3 his role was reduced because of the new hero Med'an. His final appearance in the series was in issue #21, the final issue of volume 3.
  • Broll Bearmantle - A night elf who travelled alongside Varian for most of the series. Though he was featured in every issue since #1, he had a brief absence from issues 17-23.
  • Valeera Sanguinar - Valeera is a hotheaded blood elf who resents Broll's help in trying to lay off her magic addiction. It was finally cured by Aegwynn. She is the only character who is featured in every issue of the series.
  • Med'an - He was first introduced in the start of volume 3 (issue #15) and began to take over Varian's role as the main protagonist later through the volume. He is the son of Medivh, the sorcerer who brought the orcs into Azeroth, and Garona Halforcen, the orc assassin who killed King Llane Wrynn during the First War. Med'an was taken in by the undead sorcerer Meryl. He was the "child of three realms" from a prophecy, who would be the savior of Azeroth. With the formation of the new Council of Tirisfal, he began to learn magic of all types including, druidism and arcane sorcery.
