Tomli and Muninn
In the World of Warcraft manual, it talks about a Muninn Magellas. In Lands of Conflict, which is set sometime before the events of World of Warcraft, it talks about a Tomli Magellas. Dark Factions mentions the founding of the guild and speaks of Muninn Magellas. Both "characters" have the title of High Explorer, along with Brann Bronzebeard. It is unknown if they were intended to be relatives or the same character but with the decanonization of the RPG books, Tomli too was made non-canon.
