Lieutenant Benedict was a human found in Tiragarde Keep in Durotar. Benedict ruled over the tiny parcel of land and led the remaining Kul Tiras sailors in Durotar. He and Watch Commander Zalaphil had been dispatched to retake the keep and guard it from the orcs who wish to finish tearing it down. Gar'Thok at Razor Hill is one such orc.

Benedict's Chest contained an  [Aged Envelope] which detailed orders from the deceased Admiral Proudmoore. A letter in an early Horde quest showed that he was there to finish what Daelin started, that is invade Durotar and kill all the orcs. Another Kul Tiras fleet was expected, namely that of Lieutenant Alverold who has not returned to this day. Naturally, the orcs didn't take kindly to this.

When the Cataclysm struck, all the Kul Tiras marines drowned, including Benedict.[citation needed]  Northwatch forces subsequently filled the vacuum.

  • Benedict and the other NPCs in the Tiragarde Keep were affiliated with the Stormwind faction for the Alliance players, likely done for gameplay purposes.
