Imprisoned for ten thousand years. Banished from my own homeland. And now you dare enter my realm? You are not prepared...
— Illidan

Isolation can do that to the mind. Now, after all the long centuries you kept me chained in darkness, it is only fitting that I bury you in turn.
— Illidan

Betrayer... In truth, it was I who was betrayed. Still, I am hunted. Still, I am hated. Now, my blind eyes see what others cannot: that sometimes the hand of fate must be forced! Now go forth... unleash the tides of Doom... Upon all those...who would oppose us.
— Illidan


Illidan Stormrage was, at one point, a nigh-godly sorcerer with an unusual amount of skill. He quickly turned to the profession of demon hunting, allowing his power to grow exponentially faster. He would eventually turn to assist Sargeras and was imprisoned for his efforts, only to be killed much later.

However, after his death, Illidan's true intentions were revealed- he had planned to turn on the Burning Legion and Sargeras, and save Azeroth from the infinite demonic horde.
