The Lady in White is a ghostly being featured in the The Witchwood expansion for Hearthstone. Gilneas is a haunted city. Many of its ghosts are here to help. In life, the Lady in White was a Gilnean noble woman, who saw the destruction of almost all that she loved during the fall of Gilneas. As a ghost, she seeks to help the living restore all that was lost. While the activity of restless spirits has increased sharply since the arrival of the curse in the Witchwood, most seem to be petty, malignant things, content to rage against the living. Not so with the Lady in White, who has become a symbol of hope and reassurance to the citizens of Gilneas in this dark time. She tends to appear only to those in deepest despair, and to each witness, she resembles a mother, sister, wife, or friend come to offer comfort from beyond the veil. Her dress is always white, though this detail differs as well; some insist that she was wearing her wedding dress, while others say it was a noblewoman's gown or that she was a poor girl in a plain white shift. Regardless, one consistent element among reports is that the Lady in White's expression is kind, yet achingly sad, and that she seems to be searching for something. Most will never witness the Lady in White, but those who have who have received her blessing have seen their spirits lifted in a most profound way.
