Lord Nicholas Buzan is one of the unique paladins in the Warcraft III World Editor's toybox. He is not one of the random hero names. In the single-player campaigns, his model is used for both Gavinrad the Dire and Duke Lionheart. Both him and Halahk the Lifebringer use the same model but in separate model files.

A character named Buzan the Fearless could randomly appear in the main campaign or in multiplayer maps. They may be different characters.


  • His model was given different names when appearing in the campaign that sounded more natural to Warcraft.
  • Lord Nicholas Buzan was named after Nick Buzan, a friend of level designer David Fried.
  • Fried created a black-haired and white-haired paladin to add more immersion and backstory rather than using the standard paladin. He also chose to give them unique and permanent names for each mission they appear in, considering it weird if Digging up the Dead always had Uther while the other paladins had random names.
