Philia Fintallas is the daughter of Parqual Fintallas and Mina who lived in Capital City's chambers. Since the Third War she is living in Stormwind City.


When she was a little kid, she would sometimes get his father a supper when he was working late or even assist him in the library.[1]

She was about age 15 during the events of the Gathering and is described as having large, expressive eyes and a small button nose. She was born in Lordaeron. She was visiting her extended family in Stormwind the day the Scourge sacked Lordaeron and was supposed to return the day after. Her father was a historian in Lordaeron during that time and both her mother and her father were casualties of the attack.[2] Parqual was subsequently raised as a Forsaken by Lady Sylvanas Windrunner.

When King Anduin Wrynn sent out missives looking for those willing to meet their Forsaken family and friends, Philia was one of the few willing to meet them. Prior to this, she assumed both her parents were dead.[2]

When Anduin and Calia Menethil interviewed her, she told them her uncle did not want her to meet her Forsaken father but she felt she had to see him, if it really was her father. Because of the sheer emotion she displayed when speaking about her past regarding her father, she was deemed a non-threat and was allowed to attend.[2]

When she attended the Gathering, she showed no prejudice when she was reunited with her father. When Alonsus Faol called her name, she ran straight towards her father and stopped just short of touching, both smiling largely at each other, and she remarked "It's really you!".[3] Her father had brought her old, tattered childhood teddy bear, "Brownie", to the Gathering and she wished to hold the bear, but her father refused, stating her king had to first deem it safe. She also wished to hug her father, but he regrettably said his skin couldn't handle the bear hugs he remembered and so she compromised by simply holding his hand gently.[4]

As the Gathering went on, her father attempted to flee towards Stromgarde Keep, where the Alliance forces were stationed, and defect into the Alliance so he could be a part of her life again. As he did so, he was shot in the back and killed by Sylvanas's dark rangers, who were ordered to kill all Forsaken on the field.[5]

Philia returned to the Arathi Highlands to bury the body of her father, alongside other human attendees who also lost their Forsaken family and friends in the bloodshed. She comforted Emma Felstone by saying that she was not alone and that they would help each other, after Emma had commented that all her sons were gone and that she was now alone.[6] She inscribed a personal message on her father's tombstone, "Always In My Heart".[7]
