|Occupation||Mayor, Leader of the Howling Oak|
This section concerns content related to Cataclysm.
First seen in the Merchant Square of Gilneas City as the worgen attack, she tries to salvage some supplies. She admits that she doesn't really know how to use her rapier weapon, but figures standing around with it looking menacing will make the worgen go elsewhere. She later relocates to the Military District and Greymane Court.
After the evacuation of Gilneas City, she goes to Duskhaven where she is the mayor. Ultimately, though, even Duskhaven must be evacuated when the Forsaken attack, and Gwen travels to Stormglen where she starts taking care of the other evacuees and sends the adventurer do deal with spiders. After the adventurer worked with Darius and cleared the path of Blackwald, Gwen was able to move the refugees through the woods to Tempest's Reach.
Following those events and the mass exodus from Gilneas, she resides at the Howling Oak in the night elf capital of Darnassus, holding down the fort while King Genn Greymane is in Stormwind. When spoken to, she allows worgen players to view the cinematic which lead to their arrival at Duskhaven.
Gwen is also one of the dozens of past NPC's encountered by adventurers to assist in killing the elementals at Sethria's Roost.

I don't even know how to use this weapon... but I reckon if I stand here looking menacing, the worgen might go somewhere else.
It really is good to see you again, <name>. Fur and all.
