This article contains lore taken from Warcraft novels, novellas, or short stories.

John "Jack" Felstone was a son of Emma Felstone and Jem. All three were warriors of Lordaeron, acting as guards to King Terenas Menethil. They died along with their king and the kingdom during the Third War. They were raised into undeath and became Forsaken in service of Sylvanas Windrunner.[1]

Sometime after Sylvanas's sudden ascension to Warchief of the Horde, Vellcinda Benton took it upon herself to create the Desolate Council to serve as interim organization in order to lead the Undercity in the absence of the Dark Lady, as her Warchief duties brought her out of homeland. John and his brothers were among the 22 Forsaken who had joined the Desolate Council.[2]

During the Gathering, John and his brothers were united with their mother, who tearfully hugged them. After a brief conversation with Parqual Fintallas, John and his brothers joined him in trying to defect to the Alliance.[3] However for this transgression he was killed by Sylvanas' dark rangers as he fled towards Stromgarde Keep[4] He was later buried in the Arathi Highlands alongside his brothers.


His tombstone at the Forsaken graveyard in the Arathi Highlands carries the epitaph:



Devoted Son and Brother


  • His full name is not mentioned in Before the Storm. It appears only on his in-game tombstone.
  • As Jeremiah Felstone changed his last name to "Payson" to rid himself of his former countenance[5] it is unknown if John knew his uncle was among the Forsaken.
