Counselor Talbot is a level 72 quest giver located inside Valiance Keep in Borean Tundra. He is an advisor to the keep commander, General Arlos, but his counsel seems somewhat suspicious; he believes the men of Valiance Keep are not capable of putting aside what superstitions they may have about their draenei allies, and tries to send the player away from the keep when he/she brings Cult of the Damned activity to the attention of the General.
He is involved in the following quests:
If Horde forces attack Talbot, he will use three spells, named Soul Blast, Soul Deflection and Vampiric Bolt, all three are significantly more powerful than what should be expected from an npc his level. While seeming out of place, [73G3] explains the reason he has these spells: "Counselor Talbot" is in fact the darkfallen Prince Valanar, the Scourge overlord of Borean Tundra.
