Origin

heroes-illidan-frameIllidan Stormrage is the twin brother of Malfurion Stormrage. While his brother learned the ways of the Druid with the demi-god Cenarius, Illidan delved into the arcane magics taught by Queen Azshara's Highborne.

During the Aftermath of the War of the Ancients, ten-thousand-years-ago, Illidan took samples of the Well of Eternity before it imploded. Two of the seven vials were dropped into the lake at the top of Mount Hyjal. Malfurion and his people caught Illidan in the act, and punished him severely by imprisoning him in the depths of Mount Hyjal guarded by Warden Maiev.

His hatred, ambition and addiction for arcane magic was not quenched in ten milennia. Tyrande freed Illidan from his prison in order to save what remained of the Night Elf civilization and all of Azeroth. Illidan defeated Tichondrius the Dreadlord and consumed the Skull of Guldan to empower himself with Fel Magic, transforming into a demon-hybrid. Runes, Horns, hoofs and bat-winged limbs marked his body.

Illidan nearly toppled the Lich King with the earthquake assault upon Northrend with the use of the Eye of Sargeras, and ultimately lost before Arthas the Death Knight. Leaking his wounds, Illidan rallied his new allies: Lady Vashj and her naga forces, and Kael'Thas Sunstrider and his blood elves. They traveled to Outland where they decimated the Burning Legion agents with the help of the Draenei; and sealed the seven portals throughout Outland.

As lord of Outland, Illidan ruled with an iron fist, but ultimately got defeated by heroes from Azeroth with the assistance of their allies: the Naaru, the Aldor, the Scryers, Akama and Maiev.

In Heroes of the Storm, Illidan is a force to be reckoned with. His skills in battle make him one of the most feared contenders to fight against with.

Illidan made appearances in the following media:





These are the voice over quotes repeated by Illidan when the player clicks on him multiple times:


"I grow impatient."

"Who dares address me?"

"I'm blind. Not deaf."

"(Text message/cell vibration sounds) Hold on. Darkness just texted me."

"Does anyone else miss chaos damage?"

"No, I did not just see that. Or anything else for that matter."

"Remember when wings, hooves and horns were strange for Warcraft? Ahh, the good old days."

"Alas, poor Gul'dan ... I never knew him at all, actually."

"What did you mean Blizzard added monks before demon hunters?"

"Monks aren't even a real hero class!"

"You know, for ten thousand years old Tyrande still looks pretty good. -- At least that's what they tell me."

"Ahh, my brother is such a tree hugger."

"Is Maiev behind me? She is totally behind me, isn't she?"
