Master of Revendreth|
King of the Venthyr
Commander of the Stoneborn
Fangs of the Shadowlands
|Race||Eternal One (Humanoid)|
|Occupation||Sire of the Venthyr|
Sire Denathrius is the creator and leader of the realm of Revendreth and its inhabitants, the venthyr people, which he rules from Castle Nathria. Calculating and methodical, Denathrius is ancient beyond measure and one of the most powerful beings in all the Shadowlands. He created the venthyr in his likeness, forging them from the souls of the redeemed. The first venthyr were born directly from Denathrius' will, such as Prince Renathal who considers him his father.
Rumors suggest Denathrius may no longer be fit for the role of master of Revendreth. Crowning a new Sire could return the plane to its former glory, or leave it mired in the same decadence and sin it is charged with cleansing. Denathrius beseeches Azeroth's champions to help him quell a rebellion led by Prince Renathal that threatens to destroy the venthyr's way of life, but not all is as Denathrius claims.
Notes and trivia
- There is a connection between Denathrius and the nathrezim acknowledged by Blizzard, and evidenced by the book Enemy Infiltration - Preface whose author is implied to be a nathrezim and which hints that nathrezim may have originally been at the service of Denathrius. They also share a similar vampire theme, as well as names: "Nathria" and "Denathrius" sound similar to "nathrezim" or "Nathreza", and the book is found in the Tower of the Unseen Guests, with "unseen guests" being another name for nathrezim.
- Denathrius' greatsword, , is sentient and capable of speech.
- Denathrius uses the same animation rigging as a male draenei, but has several custom animations such as talking.
- Denathrius is voiced by Ray Chase.
It is currently unknown what the nature of the relationship between Denathrius and nathrezim is. It can be speculated that:
- Denathrius might have created the nathrezim to serve him, like he created the venthyr.
- The nathrezim may be venthyr who have undergone changes (possibly due to other forces, like fel with most dreadlords or the Light for Lothraxion).
- Denathrius may have once been a nathrezim himself.
