Background[edit | edit source]

Warcraft This section concerns content exclusive to the Warcraft universe.

A peerless hunter by moonlight and the chosen of the goddess Elune, Tyrande has led the night elves in war for ages.

Tyrande was born thousands of years ago and grew up in the company of Malfurion and Illidan Stormrage. She answered the call of the Sisters of Elune, followers of the night elves' Goddess of the Moon, and became a novice priestess, while the Stormrage brothers followed different paths. Their destinies merged anew when the Burning Legion arrived on Azeroth.

Tyrande and Malfurion grew close and battled against the invading demons together, but Illidan pursued a darker path, feigning allegiance to the Burning Legion and succumbing to the temptations of power. After the defeat of the Legion and the Sundering, Tyrande and Malfurion helped rebuild elven society; Illidan was imprisoned beneath Mount Hyjal.

The couple could not remain together for long; soon after the night elves settled near Mount Hyjal, Malfurion and the other night elf druids were needed in the Emerald Dream. While Malfurion slept in the Dream, Tyrande commanded her people, forming the Sentinels – the night elven army – to guard their lands and allies.

During the Third War, Tyrande sent her Sentinels to deter the advances of the Horde in Kalimdor, but ultimately ended up working with them to battle the armies of the Burning Legion, an effort that also forced her to awaken the druids, including Malfurion, from the Emerald Dream. Their time together was cut short when the elder Stormrage suffered from the corruption of the Dream, but Tyrande joined her lover to defeat the menace, and they both returned to Azeroth, where they protected their people (and the other races of the Alliance) from the destruction caused by Deathwing and the advances of Garrosh Hellscream in Kalimdor.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Tyrande is voiced by Elisa Gabrielli.
  • She was under consideration for inclusion as early as 2011.[3]
  • One of Tyrande's gag quotes is a reference to Sailor Moon's taunt phrase, "In the name of the Moon, I will punish you!" Tyrande's status as the High Priestess of Elune clearly shows.
  • Tyrande's dance animation is derived from the dance steps of Beyoncé's Single Ladies music video.
  • In Warcraft III, Tyrande was an Amazonian character. In World of Warcraft she had a moon dress and ceremonial armor that didn't necessarily reflect what the art team wanted from a character who was meant to be combative and hands-on on the battlefield. Her Heroes of the Storm design was meant to combine that iconic white dress with an armored Sentinel look.[4][5]
  • One of Tyrande's gag quotes refers to the Jehovah's Witnesses, a Christian denomination known for their door-to-door preaching.
  • One of her gag quote references Goodnight Moon, a picture book for children.
