When Li Li Stormstout was forced overboard, the Elwynn picked her up and Lintharel tended to her as she recovered. When negotiations opened up between the Horde and Alliance, each side sent a diplomat to the other side- Nita was sent to the Alliance and Baenan was sent to the Horde. However soon after arriving Nita was placed in chain and the Captain Heller claimed that Nita had attacked him, when in reality she had been taken prisoner because he wanted to ensure that the Horde sail back to Durotar.
When learning that the Horde was demanding their surrender and that not complying would see Baenan die, Heller declared that if Baenan's life was forfeit then so too was Nita's. A confrontation erupted as Lintharel spoke in Nita's defense. With Li Li and Trialin aiding Lintharel, Nita was freed. But Heller was able to take advantage of the Warchief's Fist exploding to ram his sword through Lintharel, but found himself killed by Atropa before he could deal the death blow.
