This article contains lore taken from Warcraft novels or short stories.

Galadin is the younger twin brother of Giramar and is one of Rhonin and Vereesa's twin half-elf sons. They are both completely identical and share their father's red hair and mother's eyes.

History

At some point at the beginning of the war against the Lich King, Zendarin unsuccessfully tried to kidnap him and his brother, thinking that the offspring of a high elf and a human wizard would be powerful. In response his mother left to bring her cousin to justice and left the twins in the care of their father. When Rhonin left to find his wife the twins were presumably in the care of Jalia, who was like a grandmother and second mother to them.[1]

After the present dangers were defeated, Galadin, along with his family, witnessed the wedding of Malfurion Stormrage and Tyrande Whisperwind.[2]

Following the death of Rhonin and Jaina's appointment to lead the Kirin Tor, Galadin, his brother, and mother were present during the funeral service held in honor of the Kirin Tor's former leader.[3]

It was thinking of Galadin and his brother that prevented Vereesa from going through her initial plan of poisoning Garrosh and joining her sister in the Undercity. Vereesa, who hadn't spent as much time with her boys in recent years due to various events, left the trial and returned to Dalaran, vowing to never forsake her boys again. Honoring her promise Vereesa spent time with her children by playing with Dalaran fountain with them.[4]

Trivia

  • His name may be a reference to Gil-Galad, the last high king of the elves in Middle-Earth from J.R.R. Tolkien's works.
