- "Damn it, Father! Two years I've spent trying to overcome the stigma you've cast upon our family name. Two years! You stupid, selfish bastard, you've ruined everything!"
Beyond the Dark Portal
After Alterac's betrayal of the Alliance of Lordaeron, the Alliance's leaders discussed what should be done with the kingdom. While Aliden was the rightful heir, the king of Stromgarde disagreed on making him the new king. Terenas Menethil believed him to be an unfitting leader with no real experience.
When the Horde along with Deathwing came for the Book of Medivh, Aliden's father, Aiden Perenolde, stole and traded it to the Horde for the independence of his lands (Thus driving out the Alliance). When Aliden saw what his father had done, he confronted him and punched him in the face. He claimed that his father had ruined everything, for Aliden wanted to redeem their surname's reputation from his father's betrayal.

As the leader of the rogue organization, the Syndicate, Perenolde was in charge of operations in the Alterac Mountains. Aliden Perenolde strongly believed in slavery and sought to place the orc race back into chains — to return, in fact, to the days of Alliance internment camps under Aedelas Blackmoore, who is said to have been his mentor. Also, like Blackmoore, Lord Aliden had close ties with an orc named Nagaz (a member of the Argus Wake), reminiscent of Blackmoore and his pet orc gladiator Thrall.
In the RPG
Aliden Perenolde was told from an early age that he would succeed his father as Lord of Alterac City. He was just beginning to make a name for himself in court when the Alliance sacked the city for his father’s misdeeds. Perenolde was ultimately imprisoned, and other collaborators were stripped of their titles and property, then imprisoned or exiled. His status as heir apparent was forgotten in the leaderless Syndicate. Leadership among them was in dispute. Lord Aiden Perenolde was rotting in prison (where he would eventually die), though his son Aliden attempted to assume command. Yet, the young Lord Perenolde dreamed of reclaiming his ancestral lands. Years later, he got his chance. Perenolde had since grown into a man as charismatic and ambitious as his father.
With Lordaeron crippled in the aftermath of the Third War, he knew this was the time to strike. He convinced (or browbeat) the other nobles that this was the time for the Syndicate to attack openly and reclaim what was rightfully theirs. Though the Syndicate have regained much of its lands and more, Perenolde will not be satisfied until he takes Alterac City from the ogres. Lord Perenolde knows he is a target for the nobles who chafe under his rule (including his children) and protects himself accordingly. Aliden is in his 40s; though his body is strong, his grey hair shows his age. His clothing and armor often feature the Perenolde crest.
- The quest required Horde players to kill him in order to recover the necklace that belonged to Taretha Foxton — a friend of Thrall who was decapitated for her part in helping the young orc escape captivity at the hands of Lord Blackmoore. Aliden gave the pendant to his mistress Elysa.
- Oddly, Perenolde wears the tabard of Stormwind in-game.
- He was good friends with Captain Skarloc.
- While his armor would imply that he was a warrior, his skills indicated that he was a priest.
- Patch 4.0.3a (2010-11-23): Removed.
