Lorena was an officer in the Theramore Guard. She is one of the very few female soldiers and has worked very hard to gain what she has attained. She is one of Lady Jaina Proudmoore's most trusted soldiers and Proudmoore frequently makes good use of Lorena's military leadership abilities. She is utterly loyal to Jaina.

Biography[]

Lorena originally came from Kul Tiras where she grew up with her father and nine brothers. All of them were soldiers, and despite being a girl Lorena wanted nothing more than to be one too. She was so skilled that her father sponsored her application to join the Kul Tiras City Guard.[2] At Kul Tiras, she guarded a keep.[3] After the Third War, Lorena was promoted to colonel by Jaina herself.[4]

Lorena was sent by Jaina to Northwatch in order to find out why an Alliance ship did not help an orcish ship when it was attacked by pirates. As she and her army (Strov, Clai, Jalod, Paolo, Mal, and Ian) were returning to Theramore, they were attacked by orcish members of the Burning Blade clan. Though Ian was killed and Mal injured, they returned to Jaina and reported what had happened.

Lorena sent Strov to find a Burning Blade recruiter at the Demonsbane Inn, but when he did not report back Lorena asked Kristoff, who was acting Chamberlain in Jaina's absence, to search for him. Instead, Kristoff sent an army to reinforce Northwatch, an act that would seem aggressive to the Horde, and insisted Lorena depart immediately by airship to lead them. She named Bek, Harcort, Mirra, Noroj and the magic-sensitive Booraven as her senior officers and instead used Booraven to track Jaina to Bladescar. They found Jaina and Aegwynn trapped by the demon Zmodlor's wards but was able to act as a conduit for Jaina to magical pierce them. Jaina then teleported Aegwynn and Lorena to Theramore, where Jaina revealed Kristoff as a pawn of Zmodlor and killed him.

Once Jaina had found Zmodlor's hideout on Dreadmist Peak, Lorena accompanied her and Aegwynn there where they were beset by a horde of grellkin. While Lorena fought them off, Aegwynn and Jaina banished Zmodlor back to the Twisting Nether. Lorena returned to Theramore, and continued in military matters.[5] She died at some point.

Years later, Jaina returned to Kul Tiras and met with Tiran Blackwood nearby the flight master in the Tradewinds Market in Boralus to inform him about Lorena's death and pass on a keepsake of hers.[1]

Notes[]

  • Lorena faced a lot of sexism in her life, and as such tried to make herself look as male as possible: keeping her hair cut short, not shaving her legs, wearing undergarments that hid her breasts, and so on.[3]
  • She had a high tolerance for alcohol. When she was a rookie with the Kul Tiras City Guard, she always used to drink the men in her barracks under the table, even being their secret weapon in contests with other barracks. She particularly favored the orcish boar's grog.[6]
