|Title||<Master of Cheese>|
|Affiliation(s)||Stormwind, SI:7, Uncrowned|
|Occupation||Cheesemaker (officially); Agent of the Uncrowned|
|Location||Trias' Cheese, Trade District, Stormwind City; Hall of Shadows|
|Relative(s)||Elaine (wife), Ben (son)|
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.
According to the random fishing drop from the Dalaran fountain,: "Being a rogue is hard work. Someday I hope to pursue my life's one true passion...", which is presumably making cheese.
- "The Defias Brotherhood, you say? Well, you're certainly the bearer of wonderful news, aren't you? Next you're going to tell me that Deathwing is still alive and attacking the city."
- In early Legion development, Elling was a judge in the Cooking Tournament in Dalaran.
- The Cheesemonger, a epic card in the United in Stormwind expansion for Hearthstone, appears to be a reference to Elling.
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).
