Barov family

The Barovs.

The Barovs (known as the House Barov[1][2] or the House of Barov) were an extremely wealthy family in Lordaeron, owning the land which comprised Caer Darrow, Brill, Southshore, and Tarren Mill.[3][4][5][6]

Not content with their enormous holdings, the Barovs entered into a deal with the human mage Kel'Thuzad, leader of the Cult of the Damned.[6] The once opulent House of Barov became the horrific Scholomance, a school of necromancy underneath Caer Darrow. When the Barov family pledged their allegiance to the Cult, Lord Alexei Barov became an undead death knight while Lady Illucia and their daughter Jandice were turned into undead ghosts. Alexi Barov also became undead, however, he broke free of the Scourge joined the Forsaken under Sylvanas Windrunner.[7] Weldon Barov, the only still-living member of the family, was able to escape the massacre at Caer Darrow,[4] eventually siding with the Alliance. After Alexei's defeat, Alexei's spirit tried to cleanse Scholomance of the Scourge.[8][9]

Their family fortune still, in theory, belongs to them,[5] but the Barovs themselves were scattered. Eventually, Weldon and Alexi tried to reunite within the context of the Barov Industries, but they ended up betraying each other.[10][11] It is unknown what happened to the deeds of the enormous family fortune.

After the Fourth War, Mathias Shaw stated that the Argent Crusade reported some of the Barovs still being present in Scholomance, specifically mentioning Jandice.[6]
