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. As 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.
While the text for Thas'dorah states that Sylvanas became Ranger-General following Lireesa's death in the Second War, the story Dark Mirror clearly shows that Sylvanas was already an established ranger general before the Second War had reached Quel'Thalas.
It could be speculated that Lireesa was actually killed during the interim between the First War and Second War.
