He may have been the same person as Captain Thornby, a Kul Tiras officer involved in Admiral Proudmoore's invasion of Durotar in Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne. However, as Strahnbrad stradles the border between historic Alterac and Lordaeron, Thornby would unlikely have been a citizen of Kul Tiras by birth. If the two were the same person, he has a past similar to the venerable paladin Dagren the Orcslayer, who joined Admiral Proudmoore's expedition after failing to defeat the Scourge in Lordaeron.
