World of Warcraft
He was an ex-member of the Scarlet Crusade, which he left after witnessing innocent people being tortured simply because they were not members. Apparently, Scarlet Crusader Emissary Brother Anton in Desolace believed that Raleigh was still loyal to the cause, and directed loyal Alliance members to him for further service to the Crusade after they proved themselves in combat against Desolace's undead.
After informing the sent Alliance members of the true nature of the Crusade, Raleigh set his plan into motion: the assassination of several key figures in the Scarlet Monastery, including Houndmaster Loksey, Herod, High Inquisitor Whitemane, and Scarlet Commander Mograine.

A paladin named Raleigh the True can be found in the Town Hall in Southshore conversing with Nathanos Marris in the Old Hillsbrad Foothills instance of the Caverns of Time. The armor is the same (minus the tabard), and both have the same face and beard, though his hairline has receded since then. Why his title changed from True to Devout is unknown.
Battle for Azeroth
Raleigh survived the destruction of Southshore and, years later, returned to clear it of the blight with a cadre of paladins. The Horde tried to enrage the blight creatures to disrupt their efforts. It appears the Horde's efforts were unsuccessful, as Mathias Shaw notes when traversing Azeroth in search of artifacts that the ruins were claimed by the Alliance and are undergoing rebuilding.
