|Niehue the Exalted|
|Affiliation||Horde, Kirin Tor|

Niehue is a Forsaken Mage, noted for his skills in diplomacy.
In life it is believed, thanks to the records kept by Archivist Betha in Dalaran, that Niehue was once an apprentice to Conjuros Rex, one of three Archmagi who powered Dalaran's defensive shields against the undead during Arthas and Kel'Thuzad's Siege against Dalaran in the Third War.
Upon waking in Deathknell, Niehue found himself alone and without memory of his previous life nor his time within the Scourge. As many before him and since have done, he set out as a mercenary and was rather unimportant in the grand scheme of things, until upon entering the Felwood a figure cloaked in shadows approached him from behind and granted Niehue a vision of his future: bowing before Nafien, being praised for his diplomatic actions by Thrall personally, being saluted by Lord Maxwell Tyrosus. Due to Niehue's reclusive nature, it is difficult to say how many times Niehue was visited by this figure, although Seers claim it was at least five times in the past three years.
