Lilian Voss is a recently "recovered" undead, first uncovered by the player from a coffin inside the Shadow Grave of Deathknell. Rejecting the Forsaken, Lilian has undertaken a single-minded crusade against both the Scarlet Crusade and all evil necromancers.

The player, while leveling in Tirisfal Glades, will often either encounter or hear about Lilian up until the player helps her kill her father High Priest Benedictus Voss. Later on she infiltrated the Scarlet Monastery and enlisted the aid of adventurers in order to retrieve the  [Blades of the Anointed] and finish off High Inquisitor Whitemane by stabbing her with them. She then took the blades and went to Scholomance to kill on Darkmaster Gandling, the headmaster of the necromancy school. Surviving the experience, she is later seen in Draenor hunting more necromancers.

During the third invasion of the Burning Legion, Lilian joined the Uncrowned in the Hall of Shadows.

History

Life

Lilian was raised by her father High Priest Voss to battle the plague as a member of the Scarlet Crusade, giving up her childhood. She studied stealth, sorcery, martial arts and anything else that would make herself stronger.[4]

Lilian Voss as a newly raised Forsaken.

Lilian would grow up into a young woman, and was friends with Scarlet Lieutenant Gebler.[5] After she died, her corpse ended up at the Deathknell Graves and Lilian was raised as an undead by the Forsaken's Val'kyr. When Forsaken adventurers approached her to recruit her into the Forsaken's ranks, she ran away in denial of her undeath, claiming that her father would protect her.[6] She was later found by Novice Elreth in Deathknell. To show her what she really was and encourage her to join the Forsaken, Novice Elreth gave the Forsaken adventurer a hand mirror. When Lilian saw her own face in the mirror she ran away, again calling for her father and denying her life as an undead.[7]

Shortly thereafter, she was captured by the Scarlet Crusade and imprisoned. She was informed by Gebler that her father had disowned her and had ordered him to carry out Lilian's immediate execution.[4] Enraged by this, Lilian passed through the bars of her cage, ignited herself in purple flames and instantly killed her former comrade.

Some time later, High Executor Derrington at the Bulwark was approached by Lilian swearing enmity against the Crusade, so he directed her to the north.[8] Dozens of Scarlet Crusaders were found that had been killed in the same fashion at the Crusader Outpost and Scarlet Encampment. Lilian was again encountered by a Horde adventurer and escorted to her father. Lilian grabbed Benedictus and climbed up the walls of the towers, strangling and killing him in the process, before escaping again.[4]

Derrington later received reports of Scarlet Crusade activity at a small camp east of Felstone Field, now known as the Charred Outpost. He sends Horde adventurers to the Western Plaguelands to inspect the camp. Upon reaching the camp, all the Crusaders are found dead and engulfed in purple flames,[9] implying that Lilian had passed through the area.

Lilian Voss in Scholomance.

Lilian appeared again in revamped Scarlet Monastery instances as a Hooded Crusader, directing adventurers to clear up any rebuilding Scarlet forces inside the Monastery and to retrieve the  [Blades of the Anointed], the only weapon that is able to permanently kill High Inquisitor Whitemane. After the deed was done, Lilian finally revealed herself and took the blades, venturing to eradicate the Scourge remnant in Scholomance, including Darkmaster Gandling.

Turning her wrath against the Scourge necromancers,[10] Lilian fought her way through Gandling's domain, only to be subdued by the darkmaster himself. Now turned against her allies, she had to be freed from the necromancer's control by defeating her in combat. After the Necromancer fled, Lilian begged the adventurers to leave her to die alone. However, she managed to survive the wounds she sustained during the battle and is still active in the world somewhere.[3]

Lilian appears in Lunarfall Inn / Frostwall Tavern, enlisting adventurers to obtain a  [Soulsever Blade] from the necromancers in Auchindoun to fight against the undead on Draenor.

Lilian has moved to the Halls of Shadow in Dalaran. She sits on a flight of stairs reading a book. When The Uncrowned received word of a large cave at the Broken Shore where the Burning Legion was plotting against the Armies of Legionfall, Lilian and Fleet Admiral Tethys formulated a plan to stop them. With fel-infused gun powder taken from the Blacksail Crew,[11] Lilian and the Shadowblade sneaked their way into the Lost Temple and blew the cave up.[12]

Lilian discovered that the Legion was using homunculi, a type of undead construct so lifelike that even she couldn't identify them, to infiltrate cities, since the Illidari demon hunters made demon incursions impossible. She dispatched the Shadowblade to go after them.[13]

Battle for Azeroth

Now part of the Horde, Lilian explains that her services were "requested", not unlike Garona, another member of the Uncrowned, who said that she was "conscripted" and had to fake her loyalty to the Horde for her own safety.[14] While she still served the Uncrowned, she also recognized that Sylvanas was going to raise more Forsaken, and saw the opportunity to help the new Forsaken adapt to their situation, sparing them the suffering she herself experienced. She has also come to blame the human kingdoms for fostering malice against her kind by shunning their undead brothers and sisters, and believes it is time for the cycle of hatred to end and that the Alliance deserves to fall.[15]

Lilian attacked the Kul Tiran town of Bridgeport to slay Captain Amalia Stone and retrieve her corpse. Once Captain Stone was raised Lilian helped her adapt to undeath, and then she and Nathanos Blightcaller had Stone lead them to the highest-ranking Kul Tiran soldier at Barrowknoll Cemetery, which turned out to be Marshal M. Valentine. But Valentine's grave was empty because he had died at sea in the Second War, so Lilian and Rexxar sought out a dying tidesage who could find Valentine for them, Thomas Zelling.

Zelling was dying of an illness but was interested in becoming undead so that if he helped the Horde they would protect his wife and children, despite Lilians' best attempts to talk him out of it. Relenting, Rexxar and Lilian agreed to keep Zelling's family safe and then Lilian called a Val'kyr to raise him. She watched as his family rejected him as a monster, and then she accepted him into the Horde. Alongside Zelling, Lilian joined the expedition to recover Valentine's body, during which the Horde also found the corpse of Derek Proudmoore.

Tides of Vengeance

Keeping to her promise to Zelling, Lilian ensured that his wife and children found a home at Arom's Stand in Drustvar and were well fed.[16]

Banshee's Wail and Timberfell Outpost
We need to show the Kul Tirans what it means to make an enemy of the Horde.
  • Gossip You seem to have embraced the Horde.
It seems my skills drew the attention of the powers that be. My servises were... "requested."
Did you catch the hidden meaning there? Sorry. Despite my profession, I'm not the best at subtlety.
Regardless, I know how to recognize an opportunity when I see one.
  • Gossip What sort of opportunity?
It doesn't take a prophet to see that Sylvanas will use this war as a means of bringing more Forsaken into the world.
My own conversion was... difficult. I had a lot to work through. Many scores to settle.
I haven't let go of all that. But I also feel an obligation to help the newly risen adapt to their situation. Perhaps I can spare them the sort of pain I endured.
  • Gossip And what of the Alliance?
In life, I was raised to hate the undead. Trained to destroy them.
When I became Forsaken, I hated myself most of all.
But now I see it is the Alliance that fosters this malice. The human kingdoms shun their former brothers and sisters because we remind them what's lurking beneath the facade of flesh.
It's time to end their cycle of hatred. The Alliance deserves to fall.
Flavor - Rogue
  • Gossip I thought you served the Uncrowned. Have you changed your allegiance?
Not exactly. When you see an opportunity, you take it.
I've always had plans for my future. It's about time I do the work to make those plans a reality.
