As an agent of the Burning Legion, Tichondrius was charged with overseeing the Scourge uprising in Lordaeron. His primary task was to soften up the human defenses in preparation for a full assault by the demons of the Burning Legion. To accomplish this, Tichondrius orchestrated the spreading of a contagious plague across the countryside. He focused on corrupting food stores and water sources, which allowed the plague to infect a large number of humans in a very short timeframe. Once infected, humans would gradually transform into zombie-like undead minions. These zombies formed the core of the Scourge armies and severely weakened the human defenses.
