Background

Medivh was born to Aegwyn, the Guardian of Tirisfal. However, months earlier, when he was still in his mother's womb, the spirit of Sargeras entered her body and possessed his mind. There, hidden from Aegwyn's senses, Sargeras' spirit lay dormant for many years. It awoke after Medivh had grown up and accepted the mantle of Guardian of Tirisfal from his mother. Sargeras bent Medivh's mind to his will, and used the young Guardian's powers to communicate between worlds and contact Gul'dan with a series of visions. The visions that Medivh sent to the orc warlock were of Azeroth, portraying it as a world full of riches and life that would be easy for the Horde to conquer. Medivh then created a portal between Draenor and Azeroth for the orcs to travel through. The ensuing battles between orc and human forces became known as the First War. Sometime during those initial battles, Medivh's treachery was detected and a squad of human warriors assaulted the sorcerer's tower and slew him.

Prior to the Third War, Medivh appeared to the mortal races in an effort to convince them to band together against the Burning Legion. While he never fought directly in the war (leading some to suspect that he was just a ghost), he ensured Azeroth's survival and found some redemption for his previous crimes.
