Tao-Long is a member of the Shado-Pan. While transporting a missive to be delivered to Haohan Mudclaw, the young pandaren Ten thinking the Shado-Pan merchants stole the missive on accident. The Shado-Pan quickly realized that the missive had been stolen and gave chance when a panicked Ten ran around. Upon capturing Ten, it was revealed that Tao-Long thought Ten was a spy meant to intercept the missive and deliver to the mantid. Ten, however, was able to get away from the Shado-Pan which inspired Master Nurong to invite them to join the Shado-Pan order, while Tao-Long presumably went back to his duties.
