Biography

WoW-novel-logo-16x62.png This section concerns content related to the Warcraft novels, novellas, or short stories.

Before the Plague took him, he was a historian.[3] He'd known all there was to know about Lordaeron. He lived with his wife and daughter in Capital City's chambers. Sometimes, when buried deep in tomes, Mina would send Philia to get him supper. When Philia got older, she would assist him by browsing in the library. Once he became an undead, he was unsure what happened to his family, although he knew that his daughter should still be alive.[2]

As the Forsaken were strongly discouraged from revisiting their previous life, he tried to sneak into his former lodgings, smuggling books, only to be caught, and his books being confiscated. Over the years, he used the adventurers of the Horde to sneak his books into the Undercity. The establishment of the Desolate Council by his friend Vellcinda Benton had given him a sense of camaraderie because not everyone was content with the ways of the Forsaken culture. He believed that Sylvanas should stop forcing them to live again if they did not wish to do so, as well as allow them to embrace their former life.[2] As a member of the Council, he attended the ceremony for the Forsaken who experienced their Last Deaths. He spoke about a female warrior who died to a fel reaver.[4]

He later participated in a meeting with Sylvanas. He wondered whether she ever takes her armor off and listened to the rules of the meeting in Arathi Highlands between the Forsaken and humans. He immediately thought of his daughter Philia. He asked her if they could exchange gifts with their relatives and friends. After Elsie closed the meeting, he briefly spoke with her about the upcoming meeting and her husband Wyll.[5]

The day before the Gathering, he met with Elsie at Galen's Fall. He was very excited to meet his daugher. They noticed Annie Lansing selling scarves and sachets and he went to take one.[6] On the meeting day, overjoyed, he and his daughter reunited and even held hands.[7] As they discussed their favorite topic, history, he told Philia that this is likely the only meeting they will ever have. Philia refused to accept that. This prompted Parqual to go to Alonsus Faol's assistant, whom he had recognized as Calia Menethil, and he asked her to assist them in leaving.[8]

He was killed by Sylvanas's rangers as he fled, defecting towards Stromgarde Keep, where the Alliance forces were stationed, during the Gathering.[9] He was later buried by his daughter and the rest of human attendees that lost friends and family during the bloodshed.
