The Arbiter is an ancient, mysterious being who dwells atop the city of Oribos and judges all the mortal souls that enter the Shadowlands. Her existence predates all memory—even older than the titans, according to some accounts. When a soul is brought before the Arbiter, all of its contents—deeds, misdeeds, thoughts, accomplishments, and failures—are instantly laid bare, absorbed, and understood by her. The Arbiter then sends the soul off to one of the infinite realms of the Shadowlands, determined by the soul's character.[1][2] The Arbiter and Oribos are tended to by a race of beings known as Attendants. From among the circle of Attendants known as Scholars, an Honored Voice is selected to speak on behalf of the ever-silent Arbiter.[3]

For reasons no one can explain, the Arbiter has recently gone dormant and is no longer directing souls to their just afterlives. Instead, all souls now flow past her to hurtle directly into the Maw. The Attendants have tried to unravel this mystery, but with little success.[3]

The Arbiter could be the person who helped Vol'jin as he was said to have been saved and "touched by the hand of valor".[4]
