Elling as he appears in World of Warcraft.

Elling Trias is the owner of the shop Trias' Cheese, which is located in the Trade District within Stormwind City. He runs the shop with Elaine and Ben Trias, his wife and son. He is missing his right eye.

Giving the impression of being a mere cheesemaker, Elling Trias is a man with more to him than it appears at first glance. He has an extensive web of contacts, stretching from SI:7 to agents as far off as Hearthglen.

He has some kind of a history with Jorgen,[2] and is one of Bishop DeLavey's contacts.[3][4]

According to the random fishing drop from the Dalaran fountain, [Elling Trias' Copper Coin]: "Being a rogue is hard work. Someday I hope to pursue my life's one true passion...", which is presumably making cheese.

He worked with the adventurer to uncover Defias Brotherhood activity in kidnapping a "diplomat" to Theramore.

He is also found in the Hall of Shadows. When Stormwind was under a lockdown due to Veiled Hand, he assisted the Uncrowned's Shadow and gave him smoke bombs.[1]

He later appeared in Deliverance Point on the Broken Shore.

The "Cheesemonger" in Hearthstone.


This article or section includes speculation, observations or opinions possibly supported by lore or by Blizzard officials. It should not be taken as representing official lore.

It's speculated by some that Elling Trias may well have taken part in the extensive training that Mathias Shaw experienced for his leadership role of SI:7, maybe even being the former leader of the SI:7 and the mentor of Shaw. He is probably still an active member of SI:7, but now only assigns jobs and oversees lower members (such as Tyrion and Kirsta Deepshadow), and discreetly investigates matters of national importance (such as in The Missing Diplomat).

He may be related to David Trias of Deathknell who also happens to be a rogue trainer and Lucian Trias, a cheese vendor in Dalaran who also has ties to rogues in the form of the Uncrowned.
