Commander Althea Ebonlocke is a level 45 quest giver located in Darkshire in the human-aligned territory of Duskwood. She is the daughter of Darkshire's Mayor, Lord Ello Ebonlocke. She leads the local militia called The Night Watch and have sworn to protect the citizens of Darkshire. She later betrayed them by joining the Veiled Hand, becoming Sister Althea Ebonlocke.
Shortly before the Cataclysm, Althea was approached by the mage Karlain from Goldshire who was looking for his son Mardigan. She told him that Mardigan was seeking the Wolf Cult. Althea, being reported about the presence of the Dark Riders in Manor Mistmantle, directed Karlain to the priest Revil Kost in order to get there.
Later, being apparently told by Brink, Althea led a small group of night watchers in an ambush against the Dark Riders. A rider teleported the group alongside Karlain and Revil into Karazhan. They continued the battle with the Riders and the Curator, but Brink found an amulet and sent the watchers back in time before the ambush so it won't be planned as the rogue and priest didn't time travel.
