Leyara is a powerful Druid of the Flame with a strong hatred towards Malfurion Stormrage.
As the proud wife of Valstann Staghelm, she was devastated by his loss during the War of the Shifting Sands. At some point she lived with her daughter, Istaria, in relative peace in Ashenvale until the Horde launched its assault in the region during the Cataclysm, causing Istaria's death. Reeling from the loss of her daughter and highly disillusioned with Malfurion's passive stance in regards to the Horde, Leyara was discovered by her father-in-law Fandral Staghelm. Fandral, now aligned with Ragnaros and Deathwing, was able to induct Leyara into the new order of corrupted druids serving Ragnaros - the Druids of the Flame.
After being inducted, Leyara sneaks into Mount Hyjal to find and kill Malfurion. During her search she meets Hamuul Runetotem, successfully beats him in battle and assumes him dead. Some time afterwards, Malfurion and a band of adventurers confront her. Leyara tells them that Fandral was a true leader and that Malfurion is nothing more than a desperate dreamer with no strength to lead anyone, and that the Night Elves will see through his weakness. Malfurion then warns her that Fandral has been corrupted and that it runs deeper in him than she knows. Leyara, unheeding of Malfurion's warnings, tells him that she will kill his companions like she did Hamuul, only to see Hamuul arrive at the scene; Malfurion informs her that Hamuul survived. Hamuul tells her that he will release her from her pain, and wishes that she finally finds peace in death. In her final moments before being killed, Leyara claims that she seared the life from Hamuul's body.
