Background

Malorne the Waywatcher is one of the most ancient powers in Azeroth, and quite probably one of the first living beings in the world. Companion to Elune, father to Cenarius, and friend to every living creature, Malorne ceaselessly wandered the land in the early days of the world to guide and protect life on Azeroth.

When Malorne appears in Kaldorei history and legend, it is at the elves' moments of greatest crisis to act as a shining beacon of peace and virtue. He always appears in the form of an enormous white stag, never shifting to other forms despite the powerful magic at his disposal, and his presence alone was enough to defuse two civil wars among the night elves.

Only once did Malorne play an active part in events, when the Burning Legion invaded Azeroth through the Well of Eternity. Night elf historians say he came forward to drive back the corruption that had pervaded the world; high elven scholars argue that Malorne fought the demons so that the mortals he protected would have the opportunity to wield magic and one day walk the higher paths of power and righteousness. None will ever no for certain, for Malorne fell in the final battles of the War of the Ancients.
