Timolain was a human mage of the Scarlet Crusade.

History

The mage Timolain lived in Hearthglen and wanted to fight the Scourge. His fellow crusaders commissioned him to create bows and guns to fight the undead.[2][3] He once visited Prince Tortheldrin in Dire Maul and gave him a copy of  [A Complete Copy of "Nat Pagle's Guide to Extreme Anglin'."].[4]

It was spread that he was killed because they supposedly feared the arcane, and either while he was working on or after he had created a powerful weapon.[3][2]

In truth, Timolain had turned to necromancy and created a dark crystal, the counterpart of the holy artifact that fuels the Ashbringer. Before he could put it into a blade, Isillien fed Timolain to a vile slime.[5] During his long and excruciating demise within the slime, Timolain used his necromantic powers to bind himself to a phylactery and threw the crystal into the Thondroril River.[6]

During the Burning Legion's third invasion of Azeroth, the slime was killed by the new Highlord of the Knights of the Silver Hand, Timolain revived from his phylactery and the crystal retaken.

Quotes

  • Ah, the Ashbringer yet lives. Curious.

You will find no fight here, paladin. I can do you no harm, and bear no allegiance to the dark creatures you seek to destroy.

Gossip What happened to you?

I suspect you know. We would not be meeting otherwise.

My story is simple. The original wielder of your blade proved unable to stand against the endless throngs of undead that threatened our world.

I sought a different approach... one that could not fail.

Gossip And what was that?

I devised a way to fight the scourge using their own magic against them. It was a simple process, really - I had a veritable river of souls at my disposable from the Lich King's rampage.

In the end, I created a counterpart to the holy relic that fuels the Ashbringer's strength, but before I could properly seat it within a suitable blade I was found out by Isillen and his dogs.

The rest, as they say, was excruciatingly painful.

Gossip What happened to the crystal?

Before I was devoured ever so slowly I did two things.

The first, as should be obvious, was putting my necromantic learnings to the test, sealing my soul within the phylactery you found. It did nothing for the pain of death... but it has served its purpose.

Afterward, as I was already half-consumed by the creature, I hurled the crystal into the river beside you in hopes that someone might still put it to use against the forces of darkness.

<The lich's face contorts into something of a smile.>

If you seek it, you will find it there.
