–Telriah Embershield, Warden of Peace.

Physical Description Edit

An ever present beauty, even at a young age while at court, Telriah possesses traits adherent to that most would expect of a Quel'dorei. She is slim, yet holding curves in the right places. Yet, the most interesting feature is the combination of her very pale complexion, often leading some to think she's sickly, and her pale-silver hair.

Her face contains high cheek bones, a small nose, and ruby-red full lips, yet her golden glowing eyes draw the most attention. The hair gifted to her by her families genetics, a pale-silver coloration, cascades down, partly over her shoulders to her chest, and the rest down her back. Curly, elegant, well cared for.

And yet, like most Quel'dorei, her frame was slim, yet curvaceous at the same time, maintaining a moderate sized bust, and hips that are in ratio to it, in an hourglass-esque form that allows a smooth stride despite any armor she may be wearing, or the longest of dresses with trailing.

One evident thing that breaks up the beauty she holds is the scar that runs down her left eye, however, due to the nature of her glowing eyes, it's unknown whether or not she is blind in that eye. Aside from this, it's unknown if she has any noteworthy scars, due to her always covering the entirety of her body.

Personality & Mentality Edit

On a note of Telriahs mind and personality, one may assume her to be a typical Elven stuck-up noble, who despises the common man and non-elves. However, she is quite the opposite, and enjoys brushing shoulders with the common person, lowborn, highborn, and other of different classes.

Typically, Telriah preaches the way she rules; "Rule for the common man, rule for the people. Not the military, not the nobles, not the church. The people matter. Without them, your rule is nothing. But you must also rule in equal terms for the military, nobles and church."

Of course, one may take this as they wish, it is obvious that Telriah has often ruled like this for a time, citing her son as being unworthy of the position of Crown Prince of Quel'Anaris, due to his Pro-Alliance views, and fears he may throw the entirety of Quel'Anaris into disarray.

Additionally, it is for this reason she is often accepting of new noble lords and their lands, as it gives a further hold over a myriad of people, providing a safe haven for them.

However, as of recent, due to the carnage of war, and previous past memories, her mentality is slightly changing, and despite the war against the legion, she seems to be becoming more aggressive in her tactics, such as her plotting to expand the territory around Morsin Keep to form a new Duchy and expand her dominion.

History Edit

Birth of an Autarch Edit

Born on June 26th, -130 E.C. to the ruling parents of Quel'Anaris, Telriah was the youngest, now middle, child of Grand Autarch Arzalen, and Lady Lyestra Embershield of Quel'Anaris. The youngest of two older sisters, Ceanne and D'torina, she was the least likely to be given the title of Heir Apparent for Quel'Anaris.

Trained initially in the arts of the bow and blade, at the age of 14, by Eridan Silverwood, then Ranger-Lord of Quel'Anaris, she soon discovered her natural affinity for the Light, something her sister, D'torina shared, and then offered to mentor her in her abilities. Frowned upon, but not forsaken from her parents, she was allowed to train under her sister.

But, only she could mentor her so much, and soon, was forced to pass her onto Dame Leariah Sunglaive, a Knighted woman who served under the Knights of Embershield. Under Leariah she had foregone the martial training most Paladins would be given, since she had already been trained in her younger years with the sword, shield and bow. Rather, she opted for more clerical training, aspiring to become a Battle-Cleric.

Finest of Loves Edit

At approximately seventy years old, Telriah was courted by a Quel'dorei noble from Quel'thalas Proper, Maethedir Aldaloth. His attempts at courting her worked, given the blessing to do so by her father, Arzalen. Many walks through forests, fine private dinners, and picnics outside of his families own estate would lead to their eventual marriage, and the House of Aldaloth being brought into the House of Embershield.

It would be this marriage that lead to Telriah's firstborn child, Garylath Embershield, who had a mane of fiery red hair and tanner skin, resembling his father more than his mother. At a near instant, after being born, Maethedir requested that Telriah stay at his estate to rest and care for the child, away from Embershield lands. After three weeks to properly recover, reluctantly, she agreed to the request, traveling North from Quel'Anaris to the Aldaloth Estate in Eversong.

There, she raised Garylath alongside Maethedir, due to Maethedir being an heir, his father still alive and watching over the Aldaloth family affairs. Telriah would go to raise Garylath much like she was, preferring him to train with a sword and bow from the young age of ten, something Maethedir agreed to.

Telriah herself however, would later choose to take up training as a member of a cavalry division within the Silvermoon Army, learning how to utilize and fight with a lance, and cavalry tactics. To this day, she still prefers a good ol' fashion Cavalry Charge, rather than just masses of infantry.

Years passed by, and their life was a peaceful one, graced by yet another child, Shaylin, who in her childhood had a calling for the arcane, rather than the Light or archery like her mother and son had. Over the years, she had grown into a young woman quite capable of being an accomplished spellblade. Telriah suggested she should enlist within the Spellbreakers, but Shaylin was content in life with being a spellblade.

The Second War Edit

Initially, the onset of the Second War was terrifying news to those of Quel'Anaris, as their home was always safe from invaders such as the Trolls. Telriah herself, hearing the news that her people would be involved, made her way to Quel'Anaris, and requested from her father that she lead a cavalry regiment from the Quel'Anarian Military.

With permission granted, the 41st Cavalry Regiment was put under her command, and she made way to Lordaeron. Initially, her and the 41st were to be placed under command of Alleria Windrunner, but, after initial refusal to utilize her cavalry, Alleria re-directed Telriahs regiment to Lord Frederick Blackwood, then a Commander of the Alliance of Lordaeron's military.

Under Frederick, Telriah and her cavalry provided a massive tilt in favor of the Alliance, with the Orcish Horde branding the 41st as the "Demonic Horsemen". It is a name she still utilizes to this day when asked about her time in the Alliance, with older veterans remembering such a name.

Alas, as with all wars, casualties do come, and often times on both sides. While the 41st Cavalry Legion did put up heavy casualties amongst the Orcish Horde within the first few months of the Second War, the 41st lost approximately three-fourths of its numbers over the entire course of the War.

Once the Orcish Horde had finally been demolished, Telriah departed to Quel'Anaris, to release the remaining men she had from the 41st Legion to the Quel'Anarian military fully, and made her way North once more, to the Aldaloth estate.

The Returning EmbershieldEdit

Initially lost upon her return to what was once the Aldaloth holdings, she found that what she saw was not a dream, but harsh reality, as the Orcs, as far as they got, had razed down what was once her husbands, and in-law families, estate and lands. Devastated at the loss, she had thought Garylath and Maethedir were consumed in the battle between Orc and Elf.

Lothin found her one day, returned to East Lowes, sobbing in her room at the loss of both husband, son and extended family. He came to her, bearing news that was sure to bring her the utmost happiness and change of attitude.

"My daughter... Fear not that both he and your son are dead. They came to us, Garylath bearing the emblem of the Farstriders, and Maethidir an accomplished swordsman. They are safe."

And indeed, it had the desired effect he had wanted, as near instantly, the crying had stopped. She stood from her bed, and went to the room where Maethidir was, greeting him with a hug and kiss, and as one would expect, staying the night within his room as well. They recollected their memories, and the time spent apart.

In the morning after, she had met with Garylath, who was ecstatic to see his mother, and gave her the story of the past year, including his graduation from the Farstrider academy, and his rank of Ranger-Lieutenant. Telriah was proud of what her son had become, and happy he had found his calling in life.

Weeks passed by, and Telriah soon found herself with constant morning sickness, and more fatigue than usual, and a check up from the Royal Physician of East Lowes revealed yet another pregnancy, her third child, and with it, came more protection and less privacy than before, as Telriah was the only daughter of Lothins to have as many children as she had. As such, he saw her as the most likely, and best successor to take on the throne of Quel'Anaris.

Until then, he had chosen Ceanne to take up the role, as she was the firstborn, but much like D'torina, she herself had never taken an interest in such an important position. D'torina and Ceanne showed no signs of outward jealousy, or envy of Telriah being picked over them to lead, or even the youngest sister, Aerelleth, who at this point was still an infant.

Almost immediately, Telriah was taken under the wing of her father, and his council, the Autarchs Council. Despite her pregnancy, and the effects of it, including fatigue and additional appetite, leading to her eating during meetings she sat on, her father felt it best if she continue to learn how to lead from his advisors, and him. Her health, over time, began to decline as the stress of the studies, and the baby, added up. Eventually, he called off her learning, and sent for Leariah Sunglaive, now an accomplished Knight of the Silver Hand, and Cleric of the Quel'Anaris Cult of Belore.

Lady Sunglaive, upon arrival and checking over of Telriah, stated she could not possibly sit in on more council meetings, or take on the stress of learning to lead in the state she was in, heavily stressed, and on top of that, heavily fatigued due to the child. Maethidir, upon receiving the news, dropped what he was doing, and ambled into the Keep right away to comfort her, taking her to the bedroom and setting the bed with plenty of pillows, and padded blankets to ensure comfort.

Months later, the child was born, and Telriah had named her Teldranas, giving her the Embershield surname in place of Aldaloth. Teldranas, she knew, was special, and promised to have her raised differently than Shaylin or Garylath, vowing to induct her to the ways of the Light, the way of a Cleric, and Cavalier.

Scourge Invasion of Quel'Anaris Edit

Years passed, and on the eve of a celebration in East Lowes, news reached Queldrastor Lothin Embershield, a warning of an impending attack on Quel'thalas, and to that extent, Quel'Anaris. At his word, the Second Cavalry Regiment and Fifth Ranger Company were sent to the gates barring entry to Quel'Anaris. While initially unworried about the impending doom to come, they soon learned that undeath was an enemy one could not kill so easily.

While initially pushed back, the Embershield Military began to hold their ground with the aid of several pyromancers, burning the undead that branched off from the main Scourge force. However, battles are not without losses, and many were lost in the rampage of the Scourge forces. Six valiant knights sacrificed their lives in an operation that cut off Scourge reinforcements, however, it also caused a good portion to return to the main army of undeath. Included in these casualties was her mother, Lyestra Dawnspear, one of the Six Knights of Embershield.

What they were unaware of however, was the insurgents who had managed to infiltrate Quel'Anaris during the ordeal at the front gates. Many followers of the Cult of Undeath began to raise the dead Elven people, and bring chaos to Quel'Anaris proper. It was with this that yet another battle followed; The Fight for East Lowes. Out of the five regiments recalled to guard the capital, only two fully survived, with the other three sustaining such losses that they were merged into one.

On top of this, Lothin Embershield, Queldrastor of Quel'Anaris, was killed in the fight, leading his soldiers head on into the enemy, and taking out many, while sustaining many wounds himself. Despite this, he fought on, leading his vanguard further and further into enemy lines, forcing the Scourge back. Surely, he had thought the battle won, and in a burst of egotistical strategy, he continued the push, until him and his men were surrounded by the remains of the Scourge attack force sent to Quel'Anaris.

However, it bought time for Telriah to rally more men, and slaughter the rest of the Scourge, and assure victory for Quel'Anaris. Alas, with Lothins death, as well as Lyestras, it fell to Telriah to try and control the Lords of Quel'Anaris, to keep them loyal to the Embershield line. She had failed in this task, and was forced to come to the conclusion that she would have to take them back one by one through military conquest if she wished for a unified Quel'Anaris under her leadership.

She did not have the power, the might, the forces, or the leadership to rally them, or conquer them, and her realization of it had given her only one choice; Self-exile, taking a ship to Kalimdor with the last of the Lordaeronians who were given warning by Jaina Proudmoore, and headed to what was soon-to-be Theramore.

Days in the Alliance Edit

Pandaren Adventures Edit

The Everlast Accord Edit

Re-founding the Protectorate Edit

Dealings with Malash Edit

Malash Embershield, a woman who rebelled against her Grandfather, was killed, then raised as a death knight, had come back to haunt the Embershield family; The only thing was... She thought she was still in the past, and she was trying to kill the first Telriah Embershield, her grandmother, and Malashes mother. Malash had gone on to find a pair of sickles, which she had enchanted with a chain that could increase or decrease in length, allowing her to hook people to her. On top of this, she had runescribed the sickles, allowing her a good amount of power.

Over time, Malash managed to enthrall the people of the North, in Altamont, Everwinter and Norgate. In a fated expedition, Telriah, and two others, Teannu Sarrent and Stormy, had their souls banished to the Shadowlands. However, Linaly had managed to destroy Malash, for the moment. Over the course of two weeks, Telriah and the others were brought back from the Shadowlands, into their bodies. However... Telriah had lost her connection to the Light. Malash had used something to sever her connection upon forcing her into the Shadowlands.

Prophecies Edit

In the past few years, Telriah has been told many prophecies concerning her, and her future. While some may not come true, some already have been proven.

Rotted rose, golden petals darkening to pustule black -- yes, this I see. A shield rising out of the sun, but its eclipsed features darken with rot. You, Telriah Embershield, you I see, features contorting with poison.

Sindorel Felclar II

While a chilling fortune telling of her future, this prophecy had already happened when the Legion of the Damned came forth, and infested her with shadows, causing her to becoming a literal shadow of her former self, leaving her riddled with doubt, anger, hatred and other emotions opposite of her.

Sun rising, yet dropping low. Fields of green turn to ash, and waters of blue turn only to red. Where once she stood, bodies stand slaughtered. And she stands atop a mighty ship, flanked by her lieutenants, demonic races on either side. It is this, Lady Embershield, that will doom Azeroth. Not the war between Alliance or Horde.

Religion & Beliefs Edit

O' Kelendri, your faithful asks that you bestow upon my blade the cleansing spell- That you cleanse it of all taint, blood, of the sins of our enemies. Your faithful asks for your forgiveness for striking down your enemies, and that she may continue to do so in your name. Fals tor di Talnu, fen shu Kelendri.

Telriah, performing the cleansing ritual.

Whilst publicly, Telriah retains a constant front of being faithful to the Church of the Holy Light, her beliefs have, since the Third War onwards, been to the Cult of Kelendri, the faith and religion of Quel'Anaris. The Goddess Kelendri is said to bestow upon her followers who retain faith the power of the Light, Fire, or Arcane, and to a lucky few, all three at once.

The primary distinction from Kelendri and the Light is that it is common for all soldiers who follow the Cult of Kelendri to cleanse their blades in a ritual every night when or if they have killed someone. It is said that a dirty blade, with the blood of an enemy, will leave the blade tainted. Furthermore, soldiers and nobles alike may not pick up anothers blade if they had fallen in combat. Some rumor that they hear whispers of the dead upon doing so- But it is not known if this is true or not.

Items of Interest Edit

  • Libram of the Guardians - The Libram you most often see Telriah wearing at her waist is a item sacred to her, but it is a recent addition to her unique array of personal items. This Libram retains the original red and gold coloration of the one she used to carry around, but, unlike the old one, this contains no prayers or Light-based writings. Rather, six of the two hundred pages are filled, each one containing a different rune that has sealed in the six souls of the Knights of Embershield, who showed extraordinary valor during the Third War.. The souls were corrupted by the Legion of the Damned, then returned to rest by the Protectorate. Telriah now protects them, but she can call upon them for advice at any time she needs.
  • Trill of the Kian Ifetch - A bastard sword named in traditional Quel'Anarian Thalassian dialect, the name translates into Blade of the Flaming Void- It's a bastard sword she normally wields with only one hand, preferring to use her other hand for another weapon, or to block blows with her modified gauntlet. The blade itself is made of a red-iron alloy, with the hilt being made up of brass discs wrapped in a golden-colored leather. The crossguard is made up of white trillium, and shaped into a falcons wings.
  • Ironbane, Will of the Dominion - A sword made of ember iron, the Will of the Dominion is the famed blade that was allowed Telriah to strike down the enemies she has faced, and keep the Dominion of Quel'Anaris, and the Protectorate, safe. A longsword, the weapon holds a hilt made of brass discs wrapped in red leather, with the crossguard in the shape of a falcons head and its wings, with rubies as the eyes.
  • Balshar, Last Shard of Embershield - A shard of the fabled 'Embershield' that sprouts her families name, Balshar is the shard she holds onto, incase one wished to steal the remainder and reforge it for their own use. Made of ember iron, and infused with the essence of fire, arcane or holy light from seven previous Embershield family members, this shard is only one of twenty eight needed to reforge the shield.

Loyalties Edit


Lor'themar, a savior in Telriahs eyes

A face of neutrality and independence, Telriah owes loyalty to, first and foremost, her people, and her advisors. However, in an underlying tone, she owes much more to her kin within the Horde; Lor'themar Theron and the Sin'dorei. Were it not for them, she'd not be in the position she is now, and Quel'Anaris would likely be under Alliance control thanks to Ailos Lightsworn.

Not only does she owe loyalty to Lor'themar- Should the Thalassian States and people be unified under one banner- But she owes him an utmost high level of respect for his decision making, and leading of the Sin'dorei, whilst simultaneously attempting to merge the gap between Sin'dorei and Quel'dorei.

All in all, were she to choose who to join, Anduin or Lor'themar, her choice would most definitely be the latter.

Friends & Enemies Edit

Ailos Lightsworn Edit


Lord Lightsworn, praying to the Light

A man she both loathes and respects, Ailos Lightsworn is the patriarch of the family her great grandfather had originally rebelled against; As such, he holds hatred for her as well, but due to their common interests of a united people, and a safe Azeroth, the two have united on multiple times, with him swearing fealty to her.

Most recently, he has found herself under Telriah once more, swearing fealty, both himself, and Quel'venoraal, along with his armies. The Lightsworn prevails once more under Quel'Anaris, and re-uniting with a daughter born of love, but bastardy, and that Telriah hopes is never found out amongst the people of Quel'Anaris.

Zaria Blackmoore Edit

7563 final2

Highlord Blackmoore

Someone Telriah had once met during her time in the Everlast Accord, Highlord Blackmoore took to Telriah in an interesting way, one of the first few in the Alliance to not initially dislike her for her neutral practices, and the way she took in Horde defectors as if they were old friends. While the debacle of the Lights Accord ensued, and Zaria presented no resistance or defense of the Protectorate, or even Telriah herself when questioned for her neutrality, Telriah began to feel a falling out for Highlord Blackmoore.

Ever since the issue involving Baron's Landing had gone through, and Lord Morsin had not been given to the Protectorate for punishment, or even punished by those of the Silver Hand of Alterac, Telriah has a strong disliking for the Matriach and Highlord.

Kamarill Howard Edit


Cleric General Howard

Coming to the Protectorate after the early days of re-uniting the noble lords of Quel'Anaris under the traditional title of Grand Autarch, Kamarill Howard had expressed interested in joining the Protectorate with her friend, Lazeroth. The two had found themselves gaining promotions under the Protectorate, and eventually Kamarill had become a commander.

Alas, Kamarill would eventually leave, joining with the Kul Tiras Marines. After months of grueling work, and cruel words against the Orc people, Kamarill requested re-entry to the Protectorate, and not only was she welcome with open arms, but Telriah asked her to be the acting Cleric-General of the Dawn Enclave, a request Kamarill took full heartedly.

Elbert van Doomray Edit


Brigadier General Doomray

The Gnome who was cited to start a rebellion against the throne of Quel'Anaris, against the ruling monarch, and rightful claimant. Elbert van Doomray was once known as the Brigadier General of the 231st Shock Troop Corps, a group that has since been dissolved due to their use of brutal tactics.

While he cannot be completely cited for the rebellion, or attempted assassination of Telriah and Eridan, due to a lack of proper evidence, many still view him as a criminal. Telriah on the other hand, is neutral on the matter, leaning more towards 'friend', until he can be proven to have done such atrocities.

Ashton Stark Edit

Sin of Human by LeeKent

Ashton, Bastard of Lightsworn

A boy she had met during her time in the Everlast Accord, Ashton struck out to Telriah as a bright individual. Ashton intrigued Telriah, as he seemed to possess the heritage of an Elf, but did not seem to be in line with that of noble blood, nor accepted his heritage. Rather, he seemed quite content with his life as an Argent recruit, and common fighter.
VibrantRavenshieldCOA zpscb6cde12

Once a Ravenshield, now a pirate.

However, it was only later down the line in life that Telriah discovered who he truly was, son of Ailos Lightsworn, a bastard really, and his named heir to the Duchy of Quel'Venoraal, should his youngest daughter not make it through her life. Despite the hardships presented by Ailos, Telriah retains a somewhat good friendship with the Stark boy, despite his new life as a smuggler, pirate, and mercenary.

Garion Magnus Edit


Lord Magnus, Count of Goldacres.

A man of importance, Lord Garion Magnus is somewhat of a rival to Telriah, his Pro-Alliance views always conflicting with her Neutrality. While both seek the destruction of the Legion, he believes the Horde should merely be used as a tool to do so. This has brought conflict between them, while they still retain a short-fused friendship, they do argue from time to time.

It is this however, that Telriah sees Garion as a pawn to use against the Legion, and if it comes to it, the Alliance and Horde, given his considerable presence within the Alliance Military, and the House of Nobles.

Quotes Edit

  • "We swear no allegiance to a King. No allegiance to a Warchief. We swear allegiance to the Protectorate, and to that extent, Quel'Anaris. Your oath is to me."
  • "If you go into battle, expect to die. That way, you fear nothing, and can continue to fight the enemy. Knowing you may die, and removing that fear, is what makes the Orcs so great at fighting."
  • "The queen is but a pawn of her own game of thrones, much like a knight to his king, to checkmate." --Telriah, on the notion as to why even queens don't have full power.
  • "The silver of a hand shows but a glimpse of the true power of a sword."
  • "To prefer one race over the other shows preference and favoritism. To prefer one soldier over another of the same experience shows favoritism as well, despite not having any abstract qualities aside from personality and profile. Do not make the mistake of enacting favoritism. It will make things harder for you."

Trivia Edit

  • Telriah is the main protagonist in the upcoming novel "Embershield Chronicles: Hope Amongst Fire".
