Original illustration:…

Ah yep... I took a dive into the World of Warcraft universe, pushed by some friends. I belong more to the 'casual' category though, only playing for fun, and because said friends are there :3

I can give a favorite capacity : Stealth!
I love sneaking around :devilish:

Saved as child by pure luck from the destruction of Quel'thalas by the scourge, the young sin'dorei lost all her family to this dark event. Amidst the chaos of the elves society at the time, and with no relative to help her, she started picking up tricks in order to increase her chance of survival.

Burning Crusade:
After the re-building of Silvermoon, she remained with her 'own', those who tread only in shadows, learning basic fighting skills and doing much thievery and pick-pocketing...
Once of age, she continued with this life-style which was now so familiar to her, until one day she attempted to pick-pocket the wrong target... one of the Horde hero. However instead of turning her to justice, the hunter choose to taker her under his wing, teaching her how to really fight and giving her a place as a Horde soldier where she really learned the way of the rogue....

Wrath of the Lich King:
Following her friend up to the iced plain of Northend, the young rogue eagerly helped cleaning the land of any and every scourge minion she met. Having worked with Forsaken back in the eastern kingdom she knew not to judge all those who were hit by the Lich king curse, but had no hesitation downing those who stood against her...

Once the campaign was over, and returning for a while in her home land, she met the latest ally of her closest friend, the troll druid Mithrias, ex-Darkspear member who had become used to the snow land as he was forced to live there...
She also started exploring the remotest part of Kalimdor a while later, hoping to fill the gap of ignorance she had about her world history...
It is also around that time that she found and raised a young Venomhide Ravasaur that would become her faithful ground steed...

Thrall steps down from his position as warchief and appoints Garrosh Hellscream as the new leader of the Horde. The former Dragon Aspect Deathwing bursts through into Azeroth from the Elemental Plane, shattering the surface of the world as tensions between the Alliance and Horde continue to build.

Fighter of long now, or at least as long as she can remember, the rogue doesn't hesitate a moment when she find herself summoned by Thrall to help deal with deathwing. While also keeping aware of what happen on the other front, and finding herself wrapped in a secret and special assignment by the Reds queen, she help along to bring down the WorldBreaker...
During this assignment she happen to meet a very special black hatchling, with whom she discuss a lot about right and wrong and such...

One of those discussion also happen to save her during the last battle against Deathwing. Her shadow power being scrambled by the old gods presence, in a failed attack she find herself projected in the room where the dragon soul lay alone... temped for a moment to take it, she turn her back and return into the fray instead...

As the continent behind the mist is discovered, and Pandaren residents of the Wandering Isle ally with both the Alliance and Horde, Selael is send among the members of the strike force that is supposed to explore this new land...

The war of Alliance and Horde being transposed here free the sha that were trapped in Pandaria, and the Thunder King Lei Shen is resurrected.
As the blond have to start waging a war against her own mind because of the sha influence, and while helped by pandaria beauty, Garrosh orders the assassination of the Darkspear leader, Vol'jin.

Forcing aside her own issue, Selael throw herself into the heat of the conflict, pretending to act as Garrosh agent and participating to several operation that she come to later regret, and try to atone, such as the events of the Bell, by the end of which Anduin Wrynn is deeply injured... (and instead of letting him to die, the rogue take the risk of pulling him out of the rubles, to ease the Alliance heroes rescue...)

Wile Jaina forcibly removes the Horde from Dalaran, throwing the magocratic city-state's support behind the Alliance in a battle that end with the death of a dear friend, the rogue throw in her lot with Vol'jin and the Darkspear Rebellion, pitting Horde against Horde.

As the siege end with Garrosh defeated, and while waiting for the trial, Selael remain in Pandaria, honing any of her skills that she can...
Sneaking in during the trial, thrown out several time by the guarding monks and sneaking in again, she luckily escape the battle unscathed... which isn't everyone case...

After those events and while things settle down anew, Selael return for a while to her traveling life style, trying to keep together her misfit family, as the group seems about to fall apart due to the many tragedy happening...
Though after a time, she felt deep relief seeing that wounds finally were starting to mend, and healing was being done by all of them...

Good game; from time to time of course and not quite so immerse when one does not have companions around, or does too common and cannot focus for more than a moment before the desire and need to do something foolish is put into action.

Selael seems quite a well depthed creation from the deprived universe that is very well know by some, and at least skimmed by all others. Also quite a nice brief to the historical timeline that is the game, even if said timeline is so scattered it is hard to really gain an accurate point to where and what xD

The models are quite nicely done - I cannot see any chips or cuts or slices that the newer model has more than common, much to the chagrin of those that use the software to make machinima.

Sin'dorei have one of the utmost horrid areas to begin in, and yes I speak about those Ghostlands that can make even the most patient tear the hair from behind their ears.

None the less, I suppose that with the favoured talent of course being stealth, some alliance and even horde should double check their armaments and supplies, less one crate or something vanish into the night xD The armour does look quite fitting - leather does seem to hold the best appearance for some reason or another.

The first one ... that has to be the favoured. It's like malicious, confident and teasing in one o.o Or something.

I'm sure you will find a story some time, and a shame it might end less the trial is bid farewell and the battle chest embraced.

I can't tell about it, since my little Selael got helped right from the start by the Apocalypse Knight of Death and the handsome black kitty General XD
Every bad guy was dead before I could even see them XD

Though you do have a point, keep an eye on your pockets when I'm near by... nifty fingers are quite amusing to have when adventuring along :devilish:

It wasn't my doing, but thanks anyway ^w^
(Thanks to Incubi and her brother too for the help! ^u^)

I did consider buying it... but I heard you had to subscribe for a monthly payment to play and that's a big no-no...
Zaccheria Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2013
Oh it does not need to be month by month, game time can be purchased from their store online, but since I am still on the free time I am unsure about it.

In either case, the character concept is an interesting one and may your adventures be sweet once the horrid lands are left behind xD
