Magistrate Henry Maleb is a level 20 elite worgen located inside Shadowfang Keep, in Silverpine Forest.


Before the Forsaken bombing of the city, he was the human Magistrate of Southshore in the Hillsbrad Foothills. He seemed to have a rather warped definition of the word 'recent', for although he claimed to have only just become the magistrate of Southshore after the assassination of the previous magistrate at the hands of the Syndicate, he had actually been leader of the town for quite some time, as evidenced by his appearance in Old Hillsbrad Foothills. As it happened, Maleb had been the new target of the Shadowy Assassins that were creeping around Southshore.

After the Cataclysm, Maleb escaped the Forsaken's plague-bombing of Southshore to Fenris Keep along with other inhabitants of the city, and willingly became a worgen to become immune to the Forsaken's necromancy and to exact revenge against his enemies. Unluckily for him, he has been locked up in Shadowfang Keep by the treacherous Lord Godfrey and his followers. It is unknown what became of him after adventurers kill Baron Ashbury, as he and the Forsaken are left in the cells.

It is most likely however, that the Magistrate is released by the worgen shortly after the death of Baron Ashbury, and the Forsaken released by their brethren as well.

This article or section includes speculation, observations or opinions possibly supported by lore or by Blizzard officials. It should not be taken as representing official lore.

Magistrate Henry Maleb can also be found in the Old Hillsbrad dungeon in the Caverns of Time, years younger but already positioned in the town hall of Southshore. This is quite strange, since in the quest "Syndicate Assassins" referenced above, his present-day self claims that he only just attained the position of magistrate:

  • "I am the new magistrate of Southshore, recently assigned after the assassination of the previous magistrate. The assassins were never found, but through our investigations we're almost certain they were hired by the Syndicate - a group of thieves led by villainous nobles of the now fallen kingdom of Alterac."

This would make his presence as Magistrate in the Southshore of the past utterly impossible; yet there he is.

An explanation to this can be that in the 7 years, he lost the position and recently regained it...or perhaps it was his 'father' (of the same name) who was killed.
