Seeing the Orc homeworld get completely destroyed, he had a sudden change of heart, and felt bad for their kind. However, this does not stop him from fighting against them with the rest of his kind; it only allows him to begin to forgive them for what they have done to him and countless others.
Antoine discovers an Orc infant after discovering an Orc mother in hiding. Parents are sent to the lethargy camps, while the Orc pup is taken with him to serve him as a slave. He names this pup "Ogargi".
Antoine was rather gentle to the young Orc, believing that it wouldn't inherit its kind's malicious ways if it were taught about the light in time to save its soul. Antoine strives to make this dream a reality, believing that Orcs could be reformed.
Antoine discusses the nature of Ogargi's people during the escapes from the lethargy camps, to help him understand why he must try and aid the guards protecting the camps. He leaves Ogargi to study on his own during this period.
He heals a number of Humans who were injured by Orcs in their escapes, but he seems always two steps behind them, and doesn't ever come in contact with Thrall and his escapees in the process of fleeing. He understands why they wish to flee thanks to a profound understanding of any creature's need to survive.
Antoine remains in Lordaeron to protect the home front during Arthas' travel to Northrend and subsequent corruption by the Lich King.
Antoine is very shocked when Arthas kills his father and becomes the dark king of Lordaeron. Chaos soon ensues, and Antoine immediately moves Ogargi with him to make it to safety. The 11-year-old Ogargi is scared and confused and is quickly comforted often by Antoine to try and keep the greenskin quiet to aid significantly in their escape.
With the Legion's forces roaming the countryside, the two could not go very far, and ended up hiding out quietly within Silverpine Forest, eventually digging out a cramped secret lair for the two to live in and continue their paladic studies.
In the confusion of the events during the Frozen Throne, Antoine slowly moves him and Ogargi southwards after their lair is almost discovered by a demon with them inside of it. They eventually make it to Ironforge, where they are looked down upon for having an orc. They remain here in safety until they can make it to Azeroth, where they remain up in the mountains.
During this time, Antoine wins the respect of many Dwarves ,although Ogargi is still looked rather poorly on, forcing Antoine to place him in hiding to prevent possible harm from coming to him. The word spreads a small ways of Antoine and his well-treated Orc slave, winning him the title "the Forgiver" amongst his Paladin peers. This general knowledge of his existence would serve Ogargi well only a few years down the line.
In a freak occurrence, they are discovered by a mad Warlock who brings down an Infernal, which nearly lands on Antoine. Antoine and Ogargi both battle against the Warlock and the Infernal, despite Antoine asking Ogargi to leave and protect himself.
Stunning Ogargi for a few precious seconds, both the Warlock and the Infernal gang up on Antoine, dealing him a mortal blow. His last blow strikes down the infernal, and Antoine collapses into the water lifelessly.
Ogargi is traumatized by the sight and a rush of adrenaline gives him strength once more, allowing him to bring down the Warlock in a few very well-placed strikes combined with holy magics. He then rushes to Antoine's aid.
It is too late for Antoine, who realizes this and accepts his fate. He tells Ogargi he is sorry, and that he loves him. He then passes away, never to know how Ogargi's story would end.
