Lady Mara Fordragon
|Character class||Paladin, Cleric|
|Affiliation(s)||Kingdom of Stormwind|
|Occupation||High Clerist of Stormwind|
Lady Mara Fordragon was the High Clerist of the Kingdom of Stormwind during the period of the First War. After the orcs decimated much of the kingdom, lady Fordragon became the patron of those refugees of the war who chose to flee to the northern nation of Lordaeron, which had thus far been untouched by the fighting.
A statue of Lady Fordragon can be seen in the Royal Gallery of Stormwind Keep within Stormwind City. She has presumably passed away due to the wording of the plaque below the statue. In addition, the other persons depicted in statues in the gallery, Llane Wrynn I and Grand Admiral Daelin Proudmoore, are deceased (unlabeled statues identical to those of Archmage Khadgar and Ranger-Captain Alleria Windrunner are also present — Khadgar and Alleria were thought to have been killed in the destruction of Draenor).
Stormwind City Heroes Tribute
A statue of lady Fordragon can be found at the Sanctum of Light among those of other paladins. This could indicate two things: that she either became a member of the Knights of the Silver Hand after the creation of the order, or that she could be considered as having been a proto-paladin before the creation of the order.
In the Dragonlance series clerists are knights that gained the ability to cast divine spells much as a cleric does through worship. Her title of High Clerist might mean that she too was a knight that was able to call upon the same divine powers as the Clerics of Northshire, even though the paladins of the Silver Hand didn't existed yet at the time. The High Clerist's Tower is also a place in the War of the Lance of the same series.
- Judging by their surname, she might be related to Highlord Bolvar Fordragon.
