Varian Wrynn, King of Stormwind. (Part 1/3)

Varian Wrynn is a truly badass character in Warcraft Lore.  His background is very, very exciting and there's a lot of cool things that people never hear about.  So lets get to it.


  • Varian Wrynn was born to King Llane Wrynn in the Kingdom of Azeroth and as a youth lived a joyful and prosperous life as prince of Stormwind.
  • During the first war, stormwind was invaded and Varian helplessly watched his father, King Llane Wrynn, being brutally murdered by an Orcish rogue, Garona.
  • Varian escaped Stormwind with some commanding officers and fled to Lordaeron.  There he worked with King Terenas to end the war, and became friends with Arthas.
  • Stormwind City was rebuilt and Varian was crowned King.  He married, and had a kid name Anduin.  Later, however, his wife was killed by Edwin VanCleef.
  • On his way to Theramore for a meeting, he was kidnapped by the Defias and held captive.  Here Onyxia performed a ritual on him, and Varian was split into two duplicates.
  • Both of the duplicates had no recollection of the past.  One washed up on the shores of Durotar, and fought as a gladiator in Horde arenas.  One went back to Stormwind to act as Onyxia’s puppet. 


There's the background leading up to the true badassery.  I know, a bit boring, but necessary.  Stay tuned for Part Two.

  11. I've never really read up on the lore behind Warcraft. I started playing WoW in 2006. I'm sure I'd know more if I'd played Warcraft the RTS game. Interesting stuff.
