Back during the Second War, the intellectual dwarf named Munnin Magellas, had a vision of discovering the world’s and the dwarves secrets.

Tomli and MuninnEdit
In the World of Warcraft manual, it talks about a Muninn Magellas. In Lands of Conflict, which is set sometime before the events of World of Warcraft, it talks about a Tomli Magellas. Dark Factions mentions the founding of the guild and speaks of Muninn Magellas. Both "characters" have the title of High Explorer, along with Brann Bronzebeard. It is unknown if they are intended to be relatives or the same character.
Muninn Magellas is likely named for Muninn, one of the ravens of Odin in Norse mythology, and the famous explorer Ferdinand Magellan.
