After the Council of Six agreed to aid Theramore, both Aethas Sunreaver and Rhonin recommended Thalen to join the mission. He accompanied Rhonin to defend Theramore Isle, where he was ordered to magically strengthen the northern gate. However, while he appeared to be a loyal member of the Kirin Tor, it is revealed that he served as a loyal spy to Garrosh Hellscream. Jaina Proudmoore discovered his treachery, and confronted him at his post. As a confident loyalist, Thalen battled with her, but she gained the upper hand and knocked him unconscious. After that, he was sent him to Captain Evencane for questioning. After the Horde broke through the northern gate, some of them rescued Thalen and removed him from the city; he was safely away when Garrosh destroyed Theramore with a the mana bomb, which Thalen had engineered himself.

After regaining consciousnesses, Thalen found himself shackled in the basement of Foothold Citadel. However, before Captain Evencane could interrogate him, he was successfully rescued by Horde adventurers. Grateful for being freed, Thalen tells his rescuers the truth about Garrosh's attack on Theramore. He will then send himself and the players through a portal to Orgrimmar so they can escape before the mana bomb destroys the city. Before leaving, he tells the adventurers to visit him, if they ever come to Silvermoon City.
War Crimes EditThis section concerns content exclusive to the Warcraft novels or short stories.
Thalen continued to reside in Silvermoon after the war's end. As the deposed Garrosh Hellscream's trial continued, Thalen was approached by Warlord Zaela, who was gathering a raid of True Horde loyalists to free their captured leader. Still loyal to Garrosh, and fearful that Lor'themar Theron would punish him severely for his part in destroying Theramore, Thalen agreed to join Zaela, and his arcane mastery proved a valuable asset to the warlord. Thalen and the other loyalists served as a distraction during the trial, leading to Garrosh's rescue at the hands of Kairoz and Wrathion. Thalen survived the assault and escaped along with the others.
