Sired and raised in the Kingdom of Azeroth, Anduin Lothar has spent well-nigh all of his fifty-seven years in service to the lands he calls home. A proud and noble warrior, Lothar was accredited a position within the King's Honor Guard at a considerably early age. After becoming a Knight and rising to the position of Armsman to the Brotherhood of the Horse, he undertook a quest to seek out the Tome of Divinity - a task which all but killed him. Upon returning the sacred writings to the Clerics of Northshire, Sir Lothar led the armies of Azeroth into battle against the Orcish Horde. As the Horde ultimately ravaged the Kingdom of Azeroth and killed its advocate, King Llane, Lothar rallied his countrymen and charted their retreat across the Great Sea - and onto the shores of Lordaeron.

In recognition of his services to his people, Sir Lothar was given the title of Regent Lord of Azeroth. As commander of all land and air forces within the Alliance, Lothar has made a solemn pledge to avenge both King and comrades by vanquishing the Orcish Horde once and for all.[1]

Notes

  • Anduin Lothar is referenced in the story of the human campaign multiple times, but never actually appears in any missions until the thirteenth human mission, Assault on Blackrock Spire, where he is uncontrollable and is swiftly taken out by Horde forces.
  • He is able to be placed in the map editor, and when he does, it is revealed that he has the same sound set and around the same statistics of a knight. Unlike Uther Lightbringer, he has no mana bar and cannot cast spells if the Paladin upgrade is researched at a Church. He also does not receive the +1 Sight bonus that comes with the upgrade.
  • If the Invincibility cheat is entered before he dies, the level actually cannot end until he is killed.
