It is you who abandoned us, Maiev! You burdened me with everything in your absence!
— Sira maligning Maiev during the Battle for Darkshore.

Sira Moonwarden is an important night elven warden. When Maiev Shadowsong went missing during the third invasion of the Burning Legion, she became the interim leader of the Wardens. During the Blood War, she was killed by the Forsaken and raised as a Dark Warden in service of Sylvanas Windrunner. Apparently resenting Maiev deeply for what she perceived as her having abandoned them, saddling Sira with the burden of leadership, a perceived abandonment by Elune, and feeling the despair of death, she is now dedicated to killing her former leader and serving the Forsaken.

At some point, Sira used to be quartermaster, and it was her duty to issue and train all of the Wardens in the use of the moonglaive. Having trained every single one, she could know the wielder of every moonglaive by sight alone.[2]

Battle for Azeroth

Battle for Azeroth This section concerns content related to Battle for Azeroth.

Some time after the War of the Thorns which resulted in the burning of Teldrassil by the Horde, Maiev, Sira, and Shandris Feathermoon spoke to Anduin Wrynn to try and convince him to assault Darkshore and retake it from the Horde, but with the war focused on Zandalar, Arathi, and Kul Tiras; Anduin did not have the troops to do so. As the three night elves spoke to Anduin, Tyrande went on ahead of the army to try and retake Darkshore herself.[8][9] Maiev, Shandris, Sira, and an adventurer located Tyrande's ruined ship at the Zoram Strand, which contained a book about the ancient ritual of the Night Warrior.[10] The Night Warrior was the incarnation of Elune's wrath. The ritual to become the avatar of the Night Warrior was extremely dangerous, and even witnessing it would put you in danger. Legend said that long ago, the Night Warrior was used by the night elves to carve out their empire. None who have attempted the ritual since then have survived, for Elune's raw power tore them apart. Upon journeying to Darkshore, Maiev tasked Sira with scouting the coast while she and Shandris went further inland. Sira expressed concern that Elune had not watched over the night elves during the War of the Thorns.[11]

Sira confronted and fought off a Horde adventurer, Nathanos Blightcaller and the Val'kyr that were aiming to raise Delaryn Summermoon, but was killed. Her last words were disbelief that Tyrande had not arrived to help her.[12] Very soon afterward Tyrande, empowered by the Night Warrior, did arrive and battle Nathanos, but despite Tyrande's efforts the Val'kyr succeeded in raising not only Delaryn but Sira as well. Now known as a Dark Warden, Sira accused Tyrande and Elune of abandoning her and declared that she was now a Forsaken. She left the battlefield with the Horde.[13]

Sira served as one of the Horde commanders in the Battle for Darkshore, opposite of Maiev. She accuses Maiev of having abandoned the Wardens when Sira was left in charge.
