Advisor Melandrus, First Blade of Grand Magistrix Elisande, is a high-ranking nightborne and the final boss of the Court of Stars. He was the one responsible for betraying First Arcanist Thalyssra when she attempted to prevent Elisande from allying with Burning Legion, leading to Thalyssra's exile and transformation into a nightfallen.

Background

Twilight of Suramar

WoW-comic-logo-16x68.png This section concerns content exclusive to the World of Warcraft comics.

Melandrus was present when Gul'dan, emissary of the demonic Burning Legion, appeared before the nightborne with his offer: bring down the barrier around Suramar, give him access to the Nightwell and become allies of the Legion, or be destroyed. While First Arcanist Thalyssra argued that the Legion would not be making offers if they were actually capable of destroying the barrier, Melandrus countered by theorizing that the demons must be desperate and needed the Nightwell's power immediately. When Thalyssra and Advisor Vandros then began to argue whether or not to accept the Legion's offer, Melandrus told his fellow advisor that even though they could argue all night, the decision ultimately lay with Grand Magistrix Elisande.

Two days later, however, Melandrus, saying that the nightborne would not become the Legion's honored allies, but its fel-cursed servants, joined Thalyssra and several others in planning a rebellion against the Grand Magistrix to prevent her from giving in to the Legion's threats. During the night, the rebels stormed into the city, but were ambushed by Elisande's soldiers. Melandrus and Thalyssra managed to evade the fighting, making their way to just outside the Magistrix's palace. However, in that moment, Melandrus raised his sword and stabbed Thalyssra through the back, saying "I am sorry, my friend... but allegiance is the only way". He then pushed her over the edge, sending her into the river below, before joining Advisor Vandros and the Grand Magistrix in bringing the barrier down.[1]

Adventure Guide
