The blessings of the forest lord Cenarius have made Malfurion Stormrage the epitome of what it means to be a druid.

Under the guidance of Cenarius – the demigod of nature and patron of druids – the venerable Malfurion Stormrage has protected the night elves from demonic invaders for millennia. During the War of the Ancients, Malfurion was among those who defended all life on Azeroth from the terrible Burning Legion, along with his future lover Tyrande Whisperwind and his brother Illidan. After their victory against the demons, Malfurion saw to it that the night elves left the Legion's ravages behind, settling in a new home near Mount Hyjal and overseeing the growth of the World Tree, Nordrassil. The Aspect of Dreams, Ysera, linked Nordrassil to the Emerald Dream—a representation of Azeroth without war and interference from sentient beings—allowing all druids, including Malfurion, access to the realm. Malfurion and others explored the Dream for centuries.

Malfurion was awakened by Tyrande to aid the resistance against the Legion once more during the Third War; upon returning to his slumber, he battled his nemesis, the satyr Xavius, who was attempting to corrupt the Emerald Dream from inside. When Deathwing broke the world and stirred the rage of elementals during the Cataclysm, Malfurion left the night elven capital of Darnassus, and gathered his fellow druids to save Azeroth once more, creating a task force to stop the invasion led by the vicious firelord Ragnaros. With the Destroyer's demise, a finally wakeful Malfurion rejoined Tyrande to support the efforts of the Alliance.

Malfurion was originally introduced in Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos.

"Something is amiss."

"May Elune grant us strength."

"Even the lowliest spirit can destroy the most powerful of demons."

"I am an Archdruid. Not a prophet. Get your lore straight."

"I speak for the trees, for the tress have no tongues."

"Night Elves are the right Elves."

"(Yawn) I could use a nap."

"Why don't you make like a tree, and then split?"

"(Ahem) Nature Calls."

"(Zipper sound) I hear the wild's call. Wait, that's just Tyrande."

"Well, this is a thorny situation. Hmm, get it? Thorny? It's because I'm a druid."

"Hahaha, I'm humorous."
