It's hard to explain, but I don't feel like I'm meant to be at Honor Hold right now, is all.
Perhaps I'm meant to be part of something larger.

- During the days of The Burning Crusade it was a common speculation that David would eventually end up being revealed as the second son of Alexandros Mograine. The Corrupted Ashbringer event in the Scarlet Monastery mentioned another Mograine living in Outland who might be able to reforge the Ashbringer. David's relative youth for a member of the Sons of Lothar, his isolation, his blacksmithing skills and his dialogue all led people to speculate that he was the one High Inquisitor Fairbanks was speaking about. Wrath of the Lich King eventually revealed that the other son was actually Darion Mograine. The Ashbringer also did not end up being forged anew, it was purified by Tirion Fordring.
