Lireesa Windrunner was the Ranger-General of Silvermoon and wielder of Thas'dorah a few years prior to the First War. She was the mother of the four Windrunner siblings: Alleria, Lirath, Sylvanas, and Vereesa. Since the eldest child, Alleria, refused the mantle of Ranger-General, choosing instead to make more practical use of her abilities as a member of the Farstriders, Thas'dorah remained in Lireesa's hands until tragedy struck: at the onset of the Second War, she and many of her rangers were killed in a bloody attack by the Amani trolls, who had recently allied themselves with the invading Orcish Horde. Sylvanas became the new Ranger-General, but Alleria was the one who took up Thas'dorah.[1]


  • At some point, the Windrunner siblings' parents gave Alleria a necklace containing an emerald, a ruby, and a sapphire.[2][3] Alleria later melted down the necklace and gave the ruby and the sapphire to Vereesa and Sylvanas, respectively.[3][4]
  • There are conflicting statements regarding when Lireesa died.
