As the daughter of , Illysanna enjoyed a position of power and privilege. She attended council meetings with sorcerers from the Moon Guard, priestesses from the Sisterhood of Elune, and other influential figures. She first met in the War of the Ancients, with his brother and their mutual friend when the three came to Black Rook Hold. She met the trio only briefly, and they did not leave any lasting impressions on her. Illidan in particular seemed like just one more sorcerer among the hundreds who had joined the resistance.
Unlike her father Illysanna did not trust Illidan, especially when Kur'talos made him leader of the Moon Guard after the death of , for Illidan had his mages channel their power into him to empower his own spells, which put the defenseless soldiers open to attack from the Burning Legion. As time passed Illysanna noticed how Illidan's mood darkened, and believed it had something to do with a change in the relationship between Illidan, Malfurion, and Tyrande. Whenever Illysanna brought up Illidan's mood to him, Illidan would try to change the subject or simply glare at her.
After her father was assassinated on orders from Lord , Illysanna's hubris began to crumble away and she started to question everything and everyone. She searched for a way to strike back at the Legion and make them suffer as she had, and in doing so, realized that while Illidan was cold and arrogant, he was right in that fighting the demons meant making sacrifices. But in the wake of Kur'talos's death, Illidan had vanished, with rumors among the resistance saying he had died, and others saying he had betrayed them to the demons. But confident that he was still on their side and working in the shadows, Illysanna left to go find him and walk in his footsteps.
Illysanna eventually became a demon hunter and was locked up in the Vault of the Wardens in the aftermath of the War of the Ancients, and freed ten thousand years later, along with the Illidari who had been captured on Mardum, by . She was believed to perish in Suramar attempting to retrieve the Twinblades of the Deceiver from , but apparently survived and made her way to Black Rook Hold. There, she was tempted to becoming Felsworn by , stuck in her demon form and believing it to be the War of the Ancients, along with the ghosts. As a result, during the purging of the keep, Illysanna was forced to be put down as she could not see that the adventurers were in fact her former allies.
As she was transformed into a demon, her soul very likely returned to the Twisting Nether.

- She was the first female demon hunter in lore.
- Despite her Dungeon Journal entry saying Illysanna was locked in the Vault of the Wardens after the War of the Ancients and only freed during the Legion invasion of the Broken Isles, she is somehow on Mardum along with the Illidari when they go to retrieve the . One of these is most likely an error.
