Maédhros is a level 80 Paladin Blood elf on the Maelstrom Realm server. He is a member of the RP-PvP guild Horde Strike Force. Maédhros' name, appearance, and Roleplaying persona are based on the J.R.R. Tolkien character Maedhros.
Biography and adventuresEdit
Maédhros fought against the Orcs and their allies in both the First War and Second War. During the First War, he served under Anduin Lothar. He assisted Lothar and others in the attack against and ultimate slaying of the mad mage Medivh. When Stormwind City fell to the first Horde and Lothar led the surviving humans into exile, Maédhros returned to his home in Silvermoon City. He would not remain for long, as he was sent with a contingent of elves to aid the Alliance in Lordaeron. While there, he was trained by Lothar to harness the power of the Light and to fight as a Paladin. In the final battle of the war, Maédhros led the protection detail that guarded the wizard Khadgar. Maédhros was therefore not with Lothar when he died fighting Orgrim Doomhammer.
After the Second War, Maédhros was promoted to the position of Ambassador to the city of Lordaeron. He worked to coordinate the defense of the northern lands of Azeroth against the undead who would later be known as the Scourge. When Arthas Menethil betrayed Lordaeron and murdered his father, Maédhros led the Silvermoon contingent out of the city before it was destroyed by the Scourge. He led the group of refugees south through Silverpine Forest and eventually secured passage on a ship to Silvermoon. Unfortunately, by the time that Maédhros and his group reached Silvermoon City, the region had been invaded by Arthas' Scourge army. Ninety percent of the High elf population was killed and/or converted into undead, including Maédhros' wife and two sons. Of his immediate family, only his daughter, Isãbellã survived.
Maédhros quickly set to work helping his people reclaim their lands, leading groups of elves into Eversong Woods and the Ghostlands to fight the remaining Scourge. He was instrumental in the Blood Elves' acceptance into the Horde. By defeating the traitor Dar'Khan Drathir, he helped secure the endorsement of Sylvanas Windrunner, leader of the Forsaken. With that endorsement, Warchief Thrall formally welcomed the Blood Elves as full members of the Horde.
Because of his former associations with the Alliance, Maédhros avoided confrontations with Alliance fighters, many of whom he considered his friends. He spent most of his time fighting against the Burning Legion in Outland and the Scourge in Azeroth and Northrend. This tendency would change after an attack on Silvermoon City by Alliance raiders. Maédhros home was specifically targeted and his daughter Isãbellã was brutally attacked and left for dead. Since then, Maédhros has turned his attention to exacting revenge on those whom he formally called "friends".
