Uther heals allies, stuns enemies, and returns as a spirit to heal after dying.[2]

Background[edit | edit source]

Warcraft This section concerns content exclusive to the Warcraft universe.

The sobriquet "Lightbringer" is not softly won, nor softly maintained beyond death. The legend of noble Uther guides the Alliance years after his passing.

Many devout followers of the Light were killed during the First War, unprepared for the sheer brutality of warfare against the Horde. The leader of the Clerics of Northshire, Alonsus Faol, believed that the Light could protect the faithful and devoted, and thus began training the most virtuous knights of Lordaeron to wield the Light in battle.

The first knight to be named a paladin was Uther, who helped found the Knights of the Silver Hand alongside Archbishop Faol and became a legend among his order. When the Second War began, Uther fought alongside his brother-in-arms, Turalyon, to fend off the forces of Horde commander Orgrim Doomhammer and lead the Alliance in a final, successful attack on the Dark Portal. In the wake of the Horde's defeat, Uther helped rebuild Stormwind City and cared for the sick and injured.

Uther remained in a leadership role with the Silver Hand for years, eventually taking Lordaeron's prince, Arthas Menethil, as his apprentice. The two forged a close relationship as teacher and student, and together they enforced justice throughout the land... until the Scourge struck Lordaeron. Arthas's growing anger at the spreading plague of undeath led him to horrific acts—such as the culling of Stratholme—and his thirst for vengeance drove him to madness. After the prince became a champion of the Lich King and killed his own father, Uther decided to personally guard the urn of the slain king. Arthas and Uther fought in Andorhal, and when the battle ended, the legendary paladin lay dead.

Today, followers of the Light pay their respects to Uther at Stormwind's cathedral, where a statue of the revered paladin was built. A dedicated few trek to his tomb in the Western Plaguelands, where the Lightbringer's memory is an unyielding gleam in a land of death.
