Quite a long time passed since the last post in which I talked about the stories and roles played by the girls of Azeroth … Now at last I finally decided to make the fifth part in the series and talk about the human babes (who are more or less humane, depending on the case) that we have loved playing alongside or why not even playing with (depending on the game we talk about). Without further dealys let us get started with one of them ladies that we haven’t seen throughout our travels in Azeroth, but whose presence and mighty destiny have played a crucial role in the development of the story as we know it.
Magna Aegwynn (Guardian of Tirisfal)
This lovely lady here is probably one of those few persons in the world that actually had more power than anyone should be allowed to wield and throughout her time as Guardian her rule was filled with awesome and epic events … So epic they were that you find her legend being passed on through a whole bunch of books you might just find yourself reading at one point or another (if you want to become “Well Read” – in azerothian terms obviously). Even if we never see her within the game world, Aegwynn and her legacy was and will be forever a defining part of Azeroth’s history, from her fight with Sargeras, to the destiny of her son (Medivh) and as we will soon see grandson (if the name Med’an doesn’t ring a bell you should really work on your lore) she will always have a place of worth among the legends of the world (of Warcraft).
Lady Jaina Proudmoore (Grand Magus of The Kirin Tor)
Quite frankly this charming lass should be one of the best known girls on the face of the whole Azeroth. She started out small in WC3 and moved upwards from there by having passed through a whole bunch events that shaped her into a perfect leader … A little ruthless and quite unnaturally hateful and with a little help and advice from the previously mentioned lass on the list she will surely have an even greater role to play in the story of Warcraft. Now I honestly hope that they’ll turn her into a villain at some point and have her wear some skimpier garments as a result of that (not that her current whereabouts are all that puritan, but still … she could do better), but either way she clearly had a huge impact so far and will certainly contiue to enchat us with her charming looks and archmage style.
Gwen Armstead (Mayor of Duskhaven)
Who says that women in Azeroth don’t get to have their say in politics? Well miss Gwen here present played her role quite well in the story of Gilneas and their passage from a secluded faction of humans to the ferocious worgen that joined the Alliance. We get to find her all over the gilnean starting zone and move on alongside her up until we finally reach the more or less permanent home of the wolf people within the Howling Oak of Darnassus. ‘Tis really odd if you ask me that although she was right there in the middle of the action from start to finish she somehow managed to escape the worgenish corruption and managed to make it out alive and in one piece, but then again who am I to judge the mayor, right? Cause after all she might just be having a “wild side” as well somewhere within that soul of hers …
Lorna Crowley (Commander of the Gilneas Liberation Front)
Now if you thought that Gwen was quite an exceptional example of feminism within video games, wait till you see this enchanting lady with roses in her hair. Miss Crowley, is also part of the Gilnean adventure as she is the daughter of one of the leaders that will defend the city against the rampaging forsaken at first (Lord Darius Crowley) and then will continue to fight them all for the next few expansions in the form of the liberation front alongside his daughter and some other wolf dudes. She leads the assault and fights valiantly throughout the starting campaign, all the way from her family orchard up until the Horde’s gunship she’s right in the middle of the action accompanied by nothing else but her wits and that big blunderbuss of hers. She sure leaved a good enough of an impression to make me give her a spot on my list and I sure do hope that at some point she might just get a more proeminent role in the story of the Alliance and who knows maybe even win the darned Battle for Gilneas.
Anveena Teague (Avatar of the Sunwell)
And the final lady on our list that happens to cover humans this time isn’t really a human but at least she looks humans so I guess that will do it. Anveena, who, as we know from the comics was created by Krasus (that’s the Dragon Queen’s Consort) when the Sunwell was destroyed embodies all that remains of the once mighty powers of the High Elves’ source of power. She appeared to be a kind and fair young lass from Tarren Mill with unknown origins (origins which are only later cleared) and o my she has quite an anime ring to herself, doesn’t she? In terms of story she remains hidden up until the events of the Burning Crusade and then after the defeat of Kil’Jaden (well sort of a defeat) she takes her place back within the Sunwell … If you are a lore junkie then I am sure that you must be familar with the reaction of Lady Liadrin when she sees the Sunwell remade and the legacy and power of her people restored.
With these being said I must conclude this post as well because youall knowvery well that all that begins must have an end as well. There still are a few babes which I would like to mention and hopefully at some point in the future we might just deal with them as well. For now I thank you for dropping by, reading, watching the pictures and whatever you might be doing around there and I hope to be back soon enough with some more content. For now, take care and enjoy your game.
