Prince Liam Greymane Level: 10 Various locations in Gilneas
Prince Liam Greymane is a member of the Royal Family of Gilneas, and the son and heir of King Genn Greymane. He appears first in Gilneas City and then later in the village of Duskhaven in Gilneas, where he does battle with the invading Forsaken. He appears shirtless in-game, and little is known of him at present. He appears to have been afflicted with the worgen curse, and it is noted that he, "might be a little reckless in his current state." This, however, may refer to him being drunk.
During the Battle for Gilneas City, Liam is killed by Sylvanas Windrunner when he takes a poisoned arrow intended for Genn. He dies secure in the knowledge that the city had been retaken. His father takes his remains and buries him at Aderic's Tomb within Aderic's Repose[47.6, 52.4], the Gilnean cemetery just east of the capital he fought so hard to protect.
"The Forsaken think we're weak, a broken people. They think we'll roll over like a scared dog... how wrong they are. We will fight them in the fields until the last trench collapses and the last cannon is silenced. We will fight them on the streets until the last shot is fired, and when there is no more ammunition, we'll crush their skulls with the stones that pave our city. We will fight them in the alleys until our knuckles are skinned and bloodied, and our rapiers lay on the ground, shattered. And if we find ourselves surrounded and disarmed, wounded and without hope; we will lift our heads in defiance and spit in their faces. But we will never surrender! FOR GILNEAS!"
The speech made by Liam before the battle in Gilneas City is reminiscent of Winston Churchill's speech in the House of Commons on June 4, 1940, during the Battle of Britain. Faced with overwhelming odds, Churchill vowed that "we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender".
