High Commander Halford Wyrmbane
- Not to be confused with Halfus Wyrmbreaker.
|Character class||Paladin, Warrior|
|Affiliation(s)||Valiance Expedition, 7th Legion|
|Former affiliation(s)||Silver Hand|
|Occupation||Leader of the 7th Legion, knight (formerly)|
Wyrmbane served as a knight during the founding of the Knights of the Silver Hand. Believing priestly orders couldn't mix with martial skills, he continued to focus only on combat training. After observing the first paladins, however, Wyrmbane became inspired by the faith and dedication of Turalyon. When the Alliance Expedition was presumed lost following the Invasion of Draenor, Wrymbane realized that warriors could also be devout followers of the Light. Wyrmbane vowed to honor Turalyon's sacrifice by being both a soldier and a paladin.
He has led the 7th Legion in crucial wars throughout recent times, timing back from the Battle of Mount Hyjal, and continues to lead the Legion to this day.

He is involved in the following quests:
"Through the valleys and peaks of Mount Hyjal, across the shifting sands of Silithus, against the Legion's dread armies - we have fought. We are the nameless, faceless, sons and daughters of the Alliance. By the Light and by the might of the Alliance, the first strike belongs to us and the last strike is all that our enemies see.
We are 7th Legion."
