Milan of the Elven House of Scribes was a member of the Alliance. He recorded the events of the Second War in The Annals of the Great Alliance.[1] He had been given the supreme honor of inscribing the Annals in preparation for the impending invasion of the Orcish Horde. It was the first time in long history, that the Great Alliance of Lordaeron brought together humans, elves, dwarves, and gnomes under the same banner to remove their common enemy from the face of the world. When he started on the Annals he did not know if they would describe the Alliance's victory or defeat, but it was his hope that the Alliance's descendants would read and learn from the pages, whatever the outcome. For that reason, he concentrated on the military aspects of the Alliance endeavors — so that future leaders could study and expand on them in the event of the Alliance demise. He believed the preservation of knowledge is of paramount importance, because the Horde came to destroy all they had learned and all they loved about the lands. He swore a great oath to protect the words with his life and to pass the knowledge on to all who would gain the smallest wisdom from it.

Background

His first action after writing the foreword to the Annals was to travel to Hillsbrad to record the maps, orders, and tactics of the Alliance's most promising human commander there, and he hoped the Gods favored the Alliance.[1] This position gave him first hand experience of several battles throughout the course of the war.

Ultimately, he witnessed the fall of Blackrock Spire and the destruction of the Great Portal, and witnessed the weeks of celebrations worldwide.[1]
