Thaedris Feathersong is a nightfallen initially located in a building in Tel'anor in Suramar. Upon concluding his story, he moves to Shal'Aran.

History

As a night elf before the War of the Ancients, Thaedris was married to Latara, one of the Sentinels. At some point Latara died and was buried at Tel'anor. He would often visit the tomb of General Startalon at Tel'anor to meditate for guidance, and watched the caretakers perform their rituals and venerate the dead. He would spend the next 10,000 years stuck inside Suramar City, without Latara's love, transforming into a Nightborne.

Thaedris believes or came to believe that as a people, it was their sacred responsibility to protect the world as heroes and guardians, like those interred at Tel'anor, which they abandoned to "hide like cowards" beneath the shield. Ashamed of what they had done, he became depressed. The last straw was when Grand Magistrix Elisande and the council struck a dark bargain to become allies with the Burning Legion. Considering the city to be lost and unable to call it home any longer, he left and ended up at Tel'anor.

Nevertheless, he was fully aware what being without the Nightwell would do but felt that there was no place for him anymore. Unable to go back, and unwilling to be resigned to a mindless existence without release or dignity as a withered, he began searching for a "third option." It was at this point that he meets the adventurer.

Thaedris offers to pay for assistance with making a potion, for which he needs difficult ingredients. Although he does not say it outright, the adventurer comes to realize that the potion is actually a lethal poison that Thaedris intends to commit suicide with, so he can be with his wife. The adventurer tries to dissuade him by telling him about First Arcanist Thalyssra's refuge at Shal'Aran and the search for a cure for withering, but he will not be swayed.

With the potion complete, Thaedris asks for help in finding his wife's missing bow. It turns out that Latara had risen as a banshee and taken it herself. After the adventurer puts her down and reports back, Thaedris admits what the potion really is, and realizes that he must live and do what he can to prevent the spirits from rising again. With new purpose, he resolves to help the adventurer save Suramar City and atone for the Nightborne's sins. Only then will he be worthy of joining his wife one day.

Quotes

Greeting
  • This is for the city for the dead. I was hoping for quiet.
  • Perhaps I will find redemption here.
Farewell
  • Tread carefully on this hallowed place.
  • Go then. Do what you can.
First encounter

Who are you? Why does a <race> come here?

This place is not meant for strangers. It is... was... a sacred place for my people. Or what my people once were.

The Lost Advisor, An Ancient Recipe

Look at the city, <race>. It is beautiful, and it is tragic.

We were cowards to hide beneath that shield. Azeroth was in our care, and we chose to abandon her. We failed our sacred duty to protect the world, and our shame is too great.

First memorial

This is where we remember General Startalon, one of the finest generals our people has ever known. He commanded the Hippogryph riders during the War of the Ancients.

I used to visit his tomb often to meditate for guidance. I wonder if I will see him.

Second memorial

This memorial is not as grand or famous as the others here, but it holds special importance for me. Within lies Lady Latara, a consummate huntress and my wife. Oh, how I miss her.
