Anduin Llane Wrynn[2] is the heir to the throne of Stormwind. He is named after two venerated figures of Stormwind history: the legendary Anduin Lothar[3] and his grandfather, King Llane.

Biography

The son of King Varian Wrynn, ten-year-old Anduin was given the crown in order to maintain order when Varian disappeared en route to a diplomatic conference at Theramore Isle; however, real power resided in the hands of Highlord Bolvar Fordragon, the Regent of Stormwind, and Lady Katrana Prestor, the Royal Advisor. King Varian's disappearance was a closely-kept secret, and his sudden "return" (later proven to be an impostor) was treated with skepticism by both Anduin himself and other leaders, such as King Magni of Ironforge. He was also captured by Onyxia because he was seen as a threat to her plan to overthrow Varian[4]. He was freed by Valeera Sanguinar and Broll Bearmantle with an army of Stormwind Knights including his father, Varian Wrynn. Onyxia was slain by them and his father regained his former self[5] Valeera Sanguinar is also known to have taught Anduin his excellent dagger skills. She is also known as a bodyguard to him.[6]

From the World of Warcaft manual

WoW Icon 16x16 This section concerns content exclusive to World of Warcraft.

"King Anduin is as wise a ruler as any ten-year-old has a right to be. Recently his father, King Varian Wrynn, went missing under suspicious circumstances while en route to a diplomatic summit at Theramore Isle. At the behest of the royal councilor, Lady Prestor, young Anduin was given the crown so that order could be preserved within the kingdom of Stormwind. Though few citizens are aware that their true king has been missing for so long, Anduin does the best he can to allay their fears. It is widely held that the boy will grow to become a shrewd leader one day."[7][8]

In Wrath of the Lich King

Wrath-Logo-Small This section concerns content exclusive to Wrath of the Lich King.

During the Wrath of the Lich King Beta test, the only change to the Stormwind Throne Room was the addition of the throne itself. Anduin stood in front of it at his usual spot.

Anduin currently stands at the side of his father, who has returned from his long absence. Anduin now has the title <His Highness Prince Anduin of Stormwind>.

In Cataclysm

It is suggested that Anduin does not follow his father's path and become a warrior of Stormwind. Rather, he feels a connection to the light and may become a priest. This decision is encouraged by his friend and 'uncle', King Magni, when he is given the mace Fearbreaker as a gift.

WoW-novel-logo-16x62 This section concerns content exclusive to the Warcraft novels or short stories.

The Shattering: Prelude to Cataclysm
It is confirmed that, despite his best efforts and those of his Dwarven mentors, Anduin simply does not take very well to the arts of combat; however, he is an excellent archer and knife thrower due to his steady hands. In fact, these steady hands, as it becomes apparent, find much use, as he excels at medical and the healing arts. He gets called upon several times during the novel to tend the wounded and bring comfort to the distraught. The Holy Light responds well to him, and he feels such a natural affinity to it that both King Magni and High Priest Rohan suggest that Anduin may have a more fitting calling as a Priest. Rohan becomes his new mentor, at least for a time. Anduin goes on to impress even members of the Horde with his levelheadedness and genuine concern for the well-being of all peoples, a stark contrast to the attitude of his father.

Quests

In Mists of Pandaria

Mists-Logo-Small This section concerns content exclusive to Mists of Pandaria.

Apparently, as part of the escalating war between the Official alliance mini-icon Alliance and the Official horde mini-icon Horde that has extended to the continent of Pandaria, Anduin has been captured and held prisoner at Grookin Hill, east edge of the Jade Forest.[9]

Anduin refuses his father's order to return to Stormwind, believing strongly that the Alliance's future is tied to that of Pandaria. After landing, paths were set into motion that helped fulfill Lorewalker Cho's vision of the future, chief among them the fall of the Serpent's Heart. He wishes to remain until he has helped set things right.

He works with the night elf Sentinels to understand the mysteries of the pools within the Vale of Eternal Blossoms. He is also instrumental in the Alliance's dealings with various factions. He secured the trust of the August Celestials to open the gates to the Vale, focusing on a mission of peace and helping the refugees of Kun-Lai Summit find a place of safe haven.

Anduin can be found in various zones as both a quest giver and ender, ultimately finding his way to the Shrine of Seven Stars[86, 63] in the Vale.

Anduin was badly injured after Garrosh shattered the Divine Bell in Kun-Lai Summit crushing the young Prince under the debris.

He is now in the Tavern in the Mists recovering from his injuries, playing chess with Wrathion.

Quests

Age

Lore-wise, Anduin Wrynn was ten when the original World of Warcraft game was released. However, given the time change taken into account by the release of Wrath of the Lich King, he would be 12 years of age.

[Anduin Wrynn's Gold Coin] fished from the Dalaran fountain has the flavor text "I wish I would grow up, it feels like I've been 10 for years."

Stormrage, whose action takes place sometimes after the fall of the Lich King, claims that he is not quite thirteen.

The Cataclysm takes place three years after the War against the Lich King. If correct, Anduin would be around 15 during World of Warcraft: Cataclysm.

Title

The son of a King is always titled as a prince. As such, his title is:

His Highness Anduin Wrynn, Prince of Stormwind
