Eli Blackfinger was the son of the famous blacksmith Nori Blackfinger. His mother died during his birth.

After Eli arrived at his father's new shop in Booty Bay, he discovered that his father had grown greedy during his time in the goblin town and he had to help him when Nori was drunk. While Eli helped him in trade, his heart was never in it. One day an elf entered Nori's shop to make an order. Eli was suspicious of the elf, for he asked for a discreet midnight transaction, but Nori simply rebuffed Eli. At the meeting, Nori handed the blade to the elf and was given his payment, then Eli saw who the blade was for; a merciless orc bandit named Havoc the Heartless. Eli tried to compel Nori to stop him from taking his blade, but Nori responded coldly "It's none of my business."

The next day Eli left, being disgusted with how greedy Nori had become. He chastised his father for selling his weaponry to those who would use them for evil. Nori grew angry, and in his anger, took his blade away from Eli and gave him a rusted weapon in return. Eli followed Havoc's trail to a trail connecting Redridge Mountains and Elwynn Forest, and found Havoc and a group of bandits about to kill a poor farmer. Eli killed the bandits (including the elf), and battled Havoc, but in the end Eli's rusted sword broke, and he was killed by Havoc. The farmer returned the body of Eli to Nori, who swore revenge upon Havoc, but it would take three years before he succeeded in finding Havoc. During that time, Nori reclaimed every blade he had ever sold, either by re-paying the people who he had sold the weapons to, or by killing them if they refused; noting that those with noble intentions had always handed over their weapons without question. Nori eventually tracked Havoc down, killing his remaining men and eventually Havoc himself using a rusted blade similar to the one he'd given his son, avenging Eli.

After Havoc was defeated, Nori set Havoc and himself ablaze, ending both of their lives.[1]
