Old Yoon (grandfather)
Mists of Pandaria
This section concerns content exclusive to Mists of Pandaria.
Although he grew up in Dawn's Blossom, in his youth he did have the opportunity to occasionally visit his grandfather, Old Yoon, at the family farm and learn all sorts of advice about farming, enough to get him started at least. His grandpa affectionately called him "Yoonie".
When Haohan Mudclaw, head of the Tiller's Union, heard Yoon had come to town and was planning to work the farm, Haohan offered to buy the land so that Yoon would just go back to the city 'where he belonged'. Yoon refused to sell, stating that it's his family's farm, and he can't just sell it. After much hard work, with the aid of an adventurer, Yoon finally gains the respect from all members of the Tillers council and is allowed to join the Tillers, with the adventurer alongside him as his business partner.
Soon after joining the Tiller's Union, Nana Mudclaw, the eldest member of the council and childhood friend of Old Yoon, decides to retire from her duties and choses Farmer Yoon as her successor. Although he would have a good deal to learn, she considers him to have a good head on his shoulders and most importantly, a generous heart. Yoon decides to accept the responsibility but doesn't believe that he will be able to work his farm and be on the council at the same time. Rather than sell the family property to some stranger, he gifts it to his business partner, entrusting them to take care of it as he himself would.
