Many consider the Windrunner family as the most tragic family in Warcraft lore. Several members of the family were killed by the orcs during the Second War, including the sisters' parents, their youngest brother Lirath, along with numerous relatives of varying proximity. Only Alleria, Sylvanas, Vereesa, and Zendarin are known to have survived. This prompted Alleria to join the Alliance Expedition in order to avenge them, which she later disappeared with. The rest of the family was one of the hardest hit by the Scourge invasion into Quel'Thalas. Sylvanas was killed by Arthas and raised as a banshee in his service, later becoming Banshee Queen of the Forsaken. The sisters' grandfather had to battle his own son, their uncle, after he was turned into an undead. A younger brother was torn to pieces by their older brother who was then himself burned with the rest of the Scourge by elven resistance fighters. The grandfather survived the battle and managed to get to Vereesa but his subsequent fate is unknown.

- While the War of the Ancients Trilogy mentions two brothers of the Windrunner sisters who died to the Scourge, War Crimes says Lirath was the only brother of the sisters. Nothing besides the War of the Ancients Trilogy has ever mentioned the others and they appear to have been retconned.

- Sylvos Windrunner was the name of a random Blood Mage in Warcraft III: the Frozen Throne, though it is unknown whether he exists as a canon character or not.
