Kalecgos is the former Aspect of the blue dragonflight, after the death of Malygos. He often disguises himself as a half-elf, calling himself Kalec. Due to the blues being most in tune with magic of all the dragonflights, Kalec has the powers of a sorcerer and the strength of a warrior.

Prior to the Nexus War, Kalecgos was Malygos' investigator, and became involved in the search for residual energies of the Sunwell. He opposed Malygos' war against mortal spellcasters and became the blue dragonflight's ambassador to the Wyrmrest Accord.

During the events of the War against the Lich King, Kalec decided to not stand with Malygos. He allied himself with Alexstrasza and the Wyrmrest Accord to help stop his former master.

With the rise of Deathwing during the Cataclysm, Kalecgos was named the new Aspect of Magic and aided his fellow Aspects and the mortal adventurers in the battle with the Black Aspect. After his defeat the blue dragons went their seprate ways; Kalec has joined the Kirin Tor and now resides in Dalaran to pursue a relationship with its new leader, Jaina.

Biography

The Sunwell

WoW-manga-logo.png This section concerns content exclusive to the World of Warcraft manga.

Kalecgos and Anveena
Main article: The Sunwell Trilogy

Kalecgos was a youngster of the blue flight, sent as an investigator by Malygos to Quel'Thalas to locate what appeared to be residual energies from the Sunwell, believed to have been destroyed by the Scourge some time before. What he found - after being severely injured by the dwarven dragon hunter Harkyn Grymstone and his band - was a strange young human named Anveena Teague, who lived with her parents outside Tarren Mill. As they evaded Harkyn's band of hunters as well as the occasional agent of the Scourge, Kalec and Anveena teamed up with Kalec's intended, Tyrygosa, and the human paladin Jorad Mace. While in Tarren Mill, they were confronted by the Scourge led by the elven traitor Dar'Khan Drathir, who sought the power of the Sunwell for himself. He believed it may have been the dragonling Raac, hatched from an egg found in the ruins of Anveena's home, but later events prove this false.

While seeking a way to remove Dar'Khan's enchanted collars from around his neck (which trapped him in humanoid form) and Anveena's, Kalec travelled to the Hinterlands - and in the process, battling the forces of both the Scourge and the Forsaken Baron Valimar Mordis - and it was there that he discovered that Anveena possessed great power, demonstrated by saving him from a potentially fatal fall from the cliffs below the Baron's castle. As she was trying to slow Kalec's fall, Anveena was captured by Dar'Khan, and taken to Quel'Thalas.

Kalec, Tyri and Jorad gave chase, travelling to the ruined elven kingdom themselves and first being captured, then aided, by Lor'themar Theron, his lieutenant Halduron Brightwing, and their band of rangers. Kalec discovered that Anveena was in fact the avatar of the Sunwell, and aided in the final battle that led to Dar'Khan's defeat. Afterwards, the previously-enslaved Korialstrasz - Prime Consort to Alexstrasza, the red Aspect - explained that he had created the illusion that was Anveena, in order to prevent the Scourge from obtaining her power. When Lor'themar pledged himself to keeping Anveena safe, Kalec decided to remain behind as well as her protector. It is heavily implied that Kalec and Anveena became romantically involved shortly thereafter.

Nexus Point

WoW-manga-logo.png This section concerns content exclusive to the World of Warcraft manga.

When a group of nether dragons attack the Nexus, Tyrygosa contacted Kalec in desperate try to save the home of the blue dragonflight. In the end, however, Kalec arrived too late; Malygos had awoken, and in his insanity he absorbed the nether dragons into himself.[2]

Fury of the Sunwell

TBC This section concerns content exclusive to The Burning Crusade.

Kalecgos within Sunwell Plateau.
See also: Kalecgos (tactics)

Kalecgos, true to his word, remained Anveena's protector while she assisted the Blood Elves in the reconstruction of their homeland. Not long after however the traitorious Prince Kael'thas, fresh from his defeat in Tempest Keep, suddenly reappears in Quel'thalas, along with the forces of the Burning Legion. Before Kalec can react, the legion captures Anveena, hoping to use her to bring their master, the demonlord Kil'jaeden, to Azeroth. Kalecgos, along with his companion Madrigosa, attempt to foil Kil'jaeden's plans, but in the process Kalecgos becomes possessed by the dreadlord Sathrovarr the Corruptor.

In the Sunwell Plateau raid, the encounter with Kalecgos is on two fronts, literally. The "Physical" front is the one players engage the blue dragon head on, in the physical world, but soon after encountering Kalecgos, portals open up to a much darker, spiritual world called the Inner Veil, where you find that the half-elf form of Kalecgos is battling against Sathrovarr the Corruptor. To complete this encounter, players must simultaneously aid Kalec in killing Sathrovarr the Corruptor, while subdueing Kalecgos' dragon form, in order to set him free.

Kalecgos later aids players in the fight against Kil'jaeden, where Anveena sacrifices herself to keep the demonlord from breaking through to Azeroth.

Grim Batol and after

WoW-novel-logo-16x62.png This section concerns content exclusive to the Warcraft novels or short stories.

Main article: Night of the Dragon

Following the loss of Anveena, Kalec returned home and became brooding and depressed, finally being sent away from the Nexus on an errand to investigate Grim Batol after starting more than one fight with his fellow blues. Kalecgos was not only upset by losing Anveena, but also by his lord Malygos's more recent stance on mortals and their handling of magic, one he appears to disagree with. At Grim Batol, Kalecgos encountered the red dragon Korialstrasz. At first, Kalec's attitude towards the consort of Alexstrasza was bitter and antagonistic; he blamed Krasus for his constant interference, and particularly for giving Anveena the illusion of life knowing how it would end.[3]

In Grim Batol's halls, Kalec and Krasus discovered the black dragon Sintharia, now known as Sinestra, creating a new flight of dragons. Working together, oftentimes begrudingly, the two dragons with the assistance of Rhonin, Vereesa Windrunner, Rom, the draenei priestess Iridi, and the nether dragon Zzeraku, they overcame Sintharia and her creation, the twilight dragon Dargonax. Iridi perished in the final battle, and Kalec took it upon himself to return her body to Outland. When asked by Krasus if Malygos would allow him to go to Outland, Kalec replied that - permitted or not - he was going anyway; to see Outland once more was Iridi's dying wish, and she deserved to be buried there.

Kalec at Wyrmrest Temple.

It is not known where Kalecgos went after that, nor the stance he takes during the Nexus War. However, it is likely he chose to not follow Malygos' orders - his distaste for the Aspect's decision to purge all mortal spellcasters was made clear to Korialstrasz.[4]

Forging of Quel'Delar

WotLK This section concerns content exclusive to Wrath of the Lich King.

Kalecgos, now the ambassador of the blue dragonflight to the Wyrmrest Accord, appears in Alexstrasza's chamber in Wyrmrest Temple standing next to Lord Itharius. During the quest B [80] What The Dragons Know, part of the questchain to restore Quel'Delar, Kalec steps forward as Krasus speaks to the player. He questions the wisdom of reforging the blade, feeling that the mortals would not be powerful enough to wield it, and remembering that powerful weapons crafted by dragonkind had been turned against them in the past. He pledged not to interfere if the mortals reforge the blade, but warned that he will keep a close watch.

Cataclysm

Cataclysm This section concerns content exclusive to Cataclysm.

Kalecgos becoming the new Aspect as seen during the Dragonwrath questline.

At some point Kalec relocated to Azshara, fearing that the death of Malygos was a sign of weakness on the part of the blue dragonflight, and that Deathwing would send agents to assassinate rest of the flight. This held true, as the black dragonflight invaded Azshara to hunt down Azuregos. Kalec can be found in Bilgewater Harbor,[55.4, 52.1] where he and Azuregos help low level Horde players to repel the invasion.[5]

A Legendary Engagement

Cataclysm This section concerns content exclusive to Cataclysm.

Meanwhile, the blue dragonflight struggled with the issue of appointing a new leader. Its members were torn between Kalecgos and Arygos, the two likeliest successors. Arygos believed that his kind should withdraw from the world and forge a new path while Kalecgos believed that they should play an active part in the world's affairs. Ultimately, the flight agreed to meet during the Embrace in hopes that one of them would be selected as the new Aspect.[6]

Arygos, who was secretly allied with Deathwing, attempted to have Kalecgos assassinated to ensure his own succession. However, his plan failed when Tarecgosa sacrificed herself to save Kalecgos, and Arygos flew off, leaving Kalecgos to become the new Blue Aspect.[7]

Thrall: Twilight of the Aspects

WoW-novel-logo-16x62.png This section concerns content exclusive to the Warcraft novels or short stories.

Main article: Thrall: Twilight of the Aspects

Kalecgos and Arygos were present during the meeting with Alexstrasza and Ysera in Wyrmrest Temple.

Later on, Thrall arrived to the Nexus and while Arygos intended to kill him, Kalecgos decided to let Thrall in. The two became friends.

Enraged that his flight has chosen Kalecgos over himself, Arygos summoned the twilight dragonflight to assault the assembled blue dragons. Kalecgos's new found powers proved too strong for the twilight dragons, however, and they retreated back to their base at Wyrmrest Temple. Kalecgos and the rest of the blue dragonflight pursued them, where they were met by the powerful chromatic dragon, Chromatus. This abomination proved too powerful even for the newly-empowered Blue Aspect, and Kalecgos and the surviving blues were forced to flee back to the Nexus.

Kalecgos's next battle would be alongside not only his own flight, but the red and green including their Aspects Alextrasza and Ysera. The three Aspects led an assault at the twilight hammer cult, specifically Chromatus. However Chromatus was too powerful even with the combined attacks of the three aspects, they would have surely died if not Nozdormu and his flight didn't show up and ordered a retreat. With little time they had, the four aspects joined hands with Thrall as he led a ritual to combine the essences of the aspects, Thrall taking place as the earth-warder. The four aspects with their new found power breathed white-gold flames at Chromatus and defeated him.

Rage of the Firelands

Kalecgos was present at both the meeting of restoring Nordrassil and the wedding of Thrall and Aggra.

Charge of the Aspects

WoW-novel-logo-16x62.png This section concerns content exclusive to the Warcraft novels or short stories.

Kalecgos as the Blue Aspect.

When discussing how to defeat Deathwing, Kalec made a comment to Ysera about needing a weapon "like none that has come before it." Later, pondering these words, the Green Aspect was struck with inspiration; they would use the Dragon Soul to unmake Deathwing. Kalec seized upon the idea and started work on engineering a way to turn the Dragon Soul against Deathwing, whom previously it could not harm. He theorized that use of arcane magic could modify it to work upon the Aspect of Death. Shortly afterwards, Ysera and Kalecgos come up with an idea of retrieving the Dragon Soul from the past to vanquish Deathwing. After telling Alexstrasza, the Dragonqueen departs to tell Nozdormu. The aspects work out a plan which involves going to the future to defeat Murozond and open the timeways to allow them to retrieve the Dragon Soul during the War of the Ancients. The aspects then ask Thrall to wield the Dragon Soul for no dragon can use it without causing themselves harm. Thrall agrees, but asks if the short-lived races can assist him. Alexstrasza agrees. Not long afterwards, Kalecgos brings up the fact that the Titans blessed the aspects for a reason, to stop the Hour of Twilight, but what would become of them afterwards. The aspects establish that they are intended to preserve the gifts they were given, for time, life, nature and magic last forever.

Hour of Twilight

Cataclysm This section concerns content exclusive to Cataclysm.

Kalecgos and the other Aspects fighting against Deathwing.

After the Dragon Soul was brought to the present, it had to be transported by Thrall and mortal heroes to Wyrmrest Temple, a place of great power connected to the Chamber of the Aspects, where the artifact was originally imbued. Since Deathwing learned of their intent, he and his minions converged on the temple to waylay them at all costs. At Wyrmrest the Aspects infused it with their essences once again, making it more potent than it ever was. Kalecgos altered the Dragon Soul's properties so that it would affect Deathwing. But the artifact was imbued with the essences of the four Aspects and Deathwing never imparted his into it. To use the weapon to defeat him, they had to infuse it with the power of the Earth-Warder. Thrall possessed a portion - however small - of that exact thing: the essence of Azeroth itself. After the death of the twilight dragon Ultraxion, Thrall unleashed the Dragon Soul upon its creator. Wounded, Deathwing fled, attempting to return to the relative safety of Deepholm, through the Maelstrom. Thrall, the Aspects, and the Adventurers gave chase, riding a gunship after the Aspect of Death, battling his personal escort along the way.

After catching up, the adventurers leapt onto Deathwing's back and began prying the elementium plates from his back, eventually making a big enough opening for Thrall to blast Deathwing with the Dragon Soul. Deathwing was blasted out of the sky, and crashed into the Maelstrom. The defenders of Azeroth briefly rejoiced at having rid themselves of the Destroyer, but Deathwing rose from the Maelstrom. Without his armor, his molten form began to mutate, granting him a form far more terrifying than before. The final battle for Azeroth began in earnest, until one final blow from the Demon Soul infused with the complete essence of each Aspect completely obliterated Deathwing. After the death of Deathwing, the Aspects had fulfilled their duty, and their ancient powers had been expended in order to destroy their former brother, and thus, the remaining Aspects became mortal.[8]

Aftermath
Together we achieved the impossible.

Jaina Proudmoore: Tides of War

WoW-novel-logo-16x62.png This section concerns content exclusive to the Warcraft novels or short stories.

Some time after Deathwing's demise, Kalec became worried about the future of the blue dragonflight as they were leaving the Nexus. There, Kalecgos looked to Kirygosa for her advice, but was interrupted by Narygos who told them that the Focusing Iris was stolen. Two days ago, Kalec and the blue dragonflight decided to move the Focusing Iris into the Frozen Sea, off the coast of Coldara, to protect its power, but the dragon escort was killed and the Focusing Iris taken. After Kirygosa confirmed that the escort was killed, Kalecgos went after the Iris because of his position as former Aspect. First, he visited Rhonin, who sent him to the human Jaina Proudmoore for help.

Kalecgos traveled to Theramore where Jaina and her trusted advisers were helping him to locate and acquire knowledge about the Focusing Iris. During that time, Kalecgos and Jaina became friends as they were speaking about their past. Yet their problems were compounded when news reached them of the Horde conquering Northwatch Hold and was seeking to target Theramore next. After Kalec and Jaina discovered the spell that kept them from finding the Focusing Iris, Kalecgos set out to retrieve it. He left Theramore, telling Jaina not to go to Northwatch Hold. With his departure, Jaina realized that she was missing his presence. Kalec was following the trail of the Iris all around Kalimdor, though he was unsuccessful. He also noticed the ruins of destroyed Northwatch and the army of the Horde. Discovering that the thieves were somehow able to rapidly change the location of the Focusing Iris, he decided to return to aid Jaina and later pick up the Iris' trail when he discovers a way to keep the thieves from toying with him. Back in Theramore, he found Jaina organizing her advisers and offers his services to her in the defense of Theramore. He remained with her and listened to her conversation with Varian through a magical mirror, while staying out of the mirror's field of view to hide his presence from the king.

The Horde moved in to attack Theramore Isle; planning to blow it up with a massive mana bomb of unseen dimension and fueled by the power of the Focusing Iris. Kalecgos's attempts to defend the city failed, leveling the entire island. Jaina, in fury, attempted to flood Orgrimmar with a tidal wave formed from the Focusing Iris, but Kalecgos managed to calm her down where even Thrall could not.

After stopping her from almost drowning an entire city, Kalec and Jaina brought the Focusing Iris to Dalaran for safe-keeping. The few remaining blue dragons went their separate ways, dissolving the blue dragonflight. Kalec stayed in Dalaran as a member of the Kirin Tor, and began a romance with Jaina.

Theramore's Fall

MoP This section concerns content exclusive to Mists of Pandaria.

Kalecgos, along with Rhonin and Jaina Proudmoore, are present inside the mage tower at Theramore's Fall. He will aid Jaina, if she is attacked by the Horde.

Dawn of the Aspects

WoW-novel-logo-16x62.png This section concerns content exclusive to the Warcraft novels or short stories.

The loss of his powers hit Kalecgos hardest of all the Aspects. His attempts to keep the Wrymrest Accord together proved fruitless among his peers doubts about their purpose on Azeroth without their powers. After discovering a mysterious artifact in the heart of Northrend, Kalecgos sees visions through the eyes of Malygos. These memories are of the original Aspects when they were still proto-dragons uniting against the threat of Galakrond. Unfortunately the device was also slowly driving Kalec mad, causing him to wander aimlessly in human and dragon form until eventually being saved by Jaina. His sanity restored, Kalec used the device as it was intended by it's creator Tyr, to remind the other Aspects that they were capable of great things together even before they had their powers, and that they could still do so again in this new Age. [9]

War Crimes

WoW-novel-logo-16x62.png This section concerns content exclusive to the Warcraft novels or short stories.

Kalecgos accompanied Jaina, Vereesa and the Alliance leaders to the trial of Garrosh Hellscream. He stayed with Jaina throughout the trial but tension grew between them as he noticed that the death of her friends still bothers her and her anger is still present. During the final days of the trial, Jaina ultimately kissed him in front of the eyes of all present, destroying the tension. After Garrosh's escape, chaos erupted in the arena. Kalec battled against the mad Kalecgos from an alternate timeline. Kalec defeated his crazy counterpart by saying that it was not his fault that in his world he was not able to stop Jaina from destroying Orgrimmar that erupted into total war, killing all the blue dragons during the war. Mad Kalecgos understood and vanished. After the battle, he quickly went to dying Jaina and watched her resurrection by Chi-Ji. She immediately hugged him.[10]

Quotes

(Inside Magisters' Terrace:)
(As he flys over from Sunwell Plateau) Be still, mortals, and hearken to my words.

Do not be frightened, <race>. Our ends are the same.

Gossip Who are you?

I am Kalecgos, of the Blue Dragonflight. I have watched over the nascent powers of the Sunwell for some time, but now I see that its terrible power could usher in the end of our world!

Gossip What can we do to assist you?

Defeating Kael'thas is a task worthy of your undivided attention.
Beyond that, if you are capable of organizing an army, there are many wrongs in the Sunwell to be addressed.
Perhaps we shall meet again there.

Gossip What brings you to the Sunwell?

A friend and I have come to rescue a young human woman from the clutches of the Legionlord, Kil'jaeden and his vile minions.
We've discovered that Kael'thas is trying to summon Kil'jaeden from the depths of the Sunwell itself.
For the sake of this world - this cannot come to pass! I am committed to seeing that it does not.

Gossip You're not alone here?

Madrigosa accompanied me on this journey, but we have become separated in the Sunwell. May fate keep her safe.

Gossip What would Kil'jaeden want with a mortal woman?

Anveena is no mere mortal, <race>. Those who recognize her true nature stop at nothing to possess her. She once rescued me, and now I intend to return the favor.

Brothers, sisters. Arygos speaks of our troubled past. Indeed, we have suffered greatly... But I would contend that we're at least partly to blame for the scars we bear... Let us turn from our old ways... Let us not seek to extinguish magic from the world... But to use responsibly for the benefit of Azeroth and all its inhabitants... It is true that our choice here today will affect the destiny of our flight, and likely, the destiny of the world... May the Titans guide us. May we be inspired to choose with wisdom. (before taking up the throne of Aspect of the Blue Dragonflight)

He is heading to the Maelstrom! We must stop him NOW. We may never get another chance if he escapes into Deepholm. (After Deathwing runs away)

The Destroyer is gathering all his might for a blow that will split the world! Attack him now! We must stop the final Cataclysm! (When Deathwing casts Cataclysm)

Old Greetings
  • There is no time to waste!
  • Kil'jaeden must be destroyed!
  • The fate of the world hangs in the balance.
New Greetings
  • You seemed troubled.
  • What brings you to me mortal?
  • Speak freely friend.
  • Something about you seems...familiar.

Notes

  • An epic off-hand item called the [Talisman of Kalecgos] may be purchased in Shattrath City for 130 [Justice Points]. It is shaped like the head of a blue dragon.
  • Kalecgos is also referenced to by Arcanist Vandril in Tranquillien. Apparently the town is awaiting word from him. Interestingly, Vandril calls him 'Kalecgos', rather than 'Kalec', his half-elf alias; specifically, Vandril says, "At this rate I'm going to pace a rut into the road. I hope the messenger from Kalecgos arrives soon."
  • Kalecgos is the dragon to take up the crown of Aspect of the Blue Dragonflight, much to Arygos' displeasure.
  • In cinematics featured in the Dragon Soul raid, Kalecgos is seen wearing shoulder armor similar to the Frostfire Regalia; his in-game model, however, lacks them.
  • Kalecgos is the only Aspect to have succeeded another, and the only one who was not empowered by the titans themselves.
  • He's voiced by Carlos Larkin.
