The blood elves have called the resplendent Eversong Woods home for millennia, but the stewardship of this forested region has not been without its perils. Bent on harnessing the elvesâ€™ mystical Sunwell, Prince Arthas and the Scourge carved a path of destruction through the heart of Quelâ€™Thalas during the Third War, leaving a tainted scar across Eversong Woods. Thus far the elves have worked extensively to drive the lingering undead from their lands and cleanse the wounds of Arthasâ€™s assault, but the task is far from over. As Quelâ€™Thalas looks toward a new future, ensuring the safety and wellbeing of Eversong will be a critical first step.
Less than a decade ago, the wondrous high elves capital of Silvermoon was nearly destroyed during a brutal Scourge invasion. Under the command of Prince Arthas, the undead ravaged the city and went on to corrupt the sacred waters of the Sunwell. Despite this horrific event, the high elvesâ€”now known as the blood elvesâ€”have labored to rebuild their ruined capital. Most recently, the rebirth of the Sunwell has lifted spirits among the elves, and they have continued to heal Silvermoonâ€™s scars in the hopes of returning the crown jewel of Quelâ€™Thalas to its former glory. When Kaelâ€™thas led his followers to the ruined world of Outland, the vibrant hawkstriders that were brought with them proved to be welcome reminders of the blood elvesâ€™ beauteous home in Quelâ€™Thalas. Valued for their trustworthiness and speed, these colorful avian creatures embody the inherent splendor of the forests within the blood elven kingdom.
While tragedy has befallen Quelâ€™Thalas in recent years, the hawkstriders remain an integral part of the elvesâ€™ day-to-day lives.Leader: Lorâ€™themar Theron Regent Lord of Quelâ€™Thalas Regent Lord Lorâ€™themar Theron is well-aware of the suffering that the blood elves have faced in recent years. After surviving the brutal Scourge invasion of Quelâ€™Thalas, he was entrusted with watching over the elven kingdom while Prince Kaelâ€™thas journeyed to Outland. Not long afterward, Lorâ€™themarâ€™s will was tested when the prince, twisted by demonic energies, returned to Azeroth and attempted to use the Sunwell for nefarious purposes. Kaelâ€™thas was later killed for his treachery, leaving Lorâ€™themar to guide the fate of the blood elves. With the Sunwell reborn, a bright future now lies ahead for Quelâ€™Thalas. Fittingly, it will be Lorâ€™themar, who weathered many of the kingdomâ€™s darkest days, leading his people toward their new destiny.
