Mephistroth is a horrifically powerful nathrezim,[2] second only to Tichondrius and Anetheron. Mephistroth remained in the Twisting Nether during the Third War.[3]

Biography

Following the death of Goremaw the Devourer, Sargeras' personal hound, Mephistroth had its fangs crafted into the Fangs of the Devourer, two powerful daggers that still contain the potent withering essence that had made Goremaw's bites so deadly. The daggers were then passed one to Akaari, one of Sargeras' deadliest assassins.[4] At unknown point of time he came into possession of the  [Skull of the Man'ari], which has allowed him to enhance his abilities to summon and command demonic armies for the Legion.[5]

Third War

Mephistroth in Warcraft III.

Mephistroth is briefly seen in a Dreadlord citadel conversing with Tichondrius and Anetheron about the status of the Scourge as Lord Archimonde demanded a report. When Tichondrius brought up his suspicion that Ner'zhul may have ulterior motives for his champion, Mephistroth was quick to dismiss his concerns claiming that Ner'zhul wouldn't dare undermine the legion's efforts. Anetheron then stressed that the only concern should be that the Scourge accomplishes its job in in bringing back the Legion as otherwise Archimonde would have their heads. With Tichondrius stressing that the Lich King would not jeopardize the Legion's return, the three dreadlords departed.

Mephistroth was one of the many demons summoned by Gul'dan in front of the Tomb of Sargeras to attack the forces of Azeroth in the climactic, disastrous battle at the Broken Shore.[6]

He arrives on the Dreadscar Rift and sees that one of his generals Jagganoth was slain by the First of the Black Harvest which meant he lost the Legion portal-world. Telling the warlock that it is nowhere close to being over and exclaims that they shall meet again. The leader of the Black Harvest thus became the Overlord of the Dreadscar.

Mephistroth was later found at Felsoul Hold in Suramar, where he battled the First of the Black Harvest who had come to take the  [Skull of the Man'ari], and escaped before he could be defeated.

The warlocks of the Black Harvest dealt another great blow to Mephistroth as they submitted the Eredar Twins, Lady Sacrolash and Grand Warlock Alythess, their will using Kira Iresoul's Bloodstone.

Mephistroth on the Broken Shore

Legionfall

Mephistroth orchestrated the Legion's invasion from the Broken Shore. After mana bombs were used to destroy his Legion ship, Mephistroth battled the order leader who was attacking him while the united order halls of Legionfall assaulted the Legion on the island below. Partway through the battle the dreadlord fell back to the Cathedral of Eternal Night, where he employed all his cunning to ensure the heroes failed in securing the  [Aegis of Aggramar].[7][8] He was defeated by Illidan Stormrage and the order leaders while Maiev Shadowsong guarded the entrance to the room from demons. After he is killed, the Aegis of Aggramar is activated.

Mephistroth's portrait in Warcraft III.
Anetheron: Is everything proceeding as planned, Tichondrius? Lord Archimonde demands a report on the Scourge.
Tichondrius: The Lich King's young death knight has been performing well...almost too well. I begin to wonder if Ner'zhul has ulterior motives for his new... champion.
Mephistroth: The human means nothing in the long run. Ner'zhul wouldn't dare undermine our efforts now.
Anetheron: Our only concern is that the Scourge accomplishes what it was created to do. Archimonde will have all our heads if we do not keep control of this situation!
Tichondrius: Believe me, brother. Neither the Lich King nor his undead lackeys will jeopardize the Legion's return!
Anetheron: See that they do not. Lord Archimonde has little patience for failure.
