Name: Legren Kerrel
Affiliations: Royal Apothecary Society (Associate, not a member), Council of the Black Harvest (Associate cooperating with the warlock coalition, not a member).
Skills: Skilled Warlock, knowledgeable magic scholar (specializing in fel magic), skilled scribe, skilled with crystal-based magitechnology.
Appearance: As with most Undead, is a rotted husk, with bones peeking through the skin in many places. Eyes
are hollow sockets. Usually wears specially-made armor, with a fairly distinctive purple coloration and cowl.
Who he is: A former pyromancer of Dalaran, who had scarcely graduated from his studies when the Third War began. He perished defending Dalaran, his corpse being hauled out of the city, raised, and sent right back in. His zombie had the "luck" to avoid dying throughout the ensuing battles, eventually awakening in Lordaeron along with the rest of the newly-minted Forsaken.
Finding his arcane magic didn't "flow right" with his undead form, he turned to darker arts. He took to them well, and aside from the odd mishap (such as summoning a felhunter before he was ready, and nearly dying as a result), he hasn't looked back since.
Legren could be said to have a high opinion of himself, but in reality, he simply has a low opinion of everyone else. He has a fairly solid understanding of his own capabilities, though he genuinely is abrasive at best.
Legren is generally selfishly-motivated, putting his own goals (namely the constant advancement of his studies) above all else, including his so-called "duties" to the Scythe and the Forsaken. He DOES have loyalty to said groups...it's merely secondary to his self-interest.
- His armor contains multiple magic crystals, which work together to form a "crystal nexus" capable of manifesting magic barriers upon taking damage, blunting enemy attacks. This drains (and tends to shatter) the crystals to fuel it, however, and only blunts blows. This armor is of his own design, a product of his ongoing magical studies. While interesting and useful, it...isn't actually any better than could be achieved with more "mundane" enchantments.
- Legren is an "old" Forsaken, having been around since the Forsaken were first founded. He often finds the "younger" Forsaken to be annoying. His age has also allowed him to gradually recover the memories of his first life, now more or less remembering his first life with clarity, unlike many Undead.
- Legren finds the fanatical devotion most Forsaken have to Sylvanas to be insulting. In his mind, the Forsaken escaped from mindless servitude to the Lich King, and so giving Sylvanas that same kind of thoughtless devotion is spitting on the struggles they went through. This doesn't mean he's disloyal - but he considers his own loyalty to the Dark Lady to be "genuine", since he's not a mere zealot.
