Matron Mother Malevolence is a shivarra located at the Seat of Command and Illidari Foothold on Mardum.

She is accompanied by Priestesses of Delight, Shivarra Destroyers, and Priestesses of Dementia. By her own admission, she joined the Illidari with other shivarra after Illidan defeated their former leader, Magtheridon[1] because she considered Sargeras "a bore" and felt that there was no fun in his goal to destroy all life.

Quest text
It never made any sense to me that all worlds should be purged in flame when there are so many delicious playthings to have fun with. Sargeras can be such a bore. Together, we will bring the Burning Legion to its knees and make them grovel in the dirt.[2]


The Fel Hammer

Hello, my dear. It's always good to see you.

What can I help with?

Illidari Stand

Well hello, my dear. I hope you don't mind. Kazn asked me to help bring some of your forces here.

It would seem that the Legion has quite the foothold on that island over there. He thought it best that we not let them take all of Azsuna.

Don't worry. I'm transporting the Illidari back and forth from the Fel Hammer as needs require. Your forces are ready to pick up and go wherever you need them at a moment's notice.

  • What a rare honor. To be one of the Illidari, instead of a servant. I must admit, I was worried you wouldn't choose me as one of your champions.
But now you have, and I could just kiss you!


  • Well, hello there.
  • I'd sooner kill you than look at you, but let's start with look.
  • Your wish might be my command. Then again...
  • Yes, I am on your side. It's complicated, for reasons.
  • I live to serve the Illidari.
  • Oh, no you did not!
  • Well, this is wholly inappropriate! I'm hardly dressed for a poking war.
  • Hey, that one hurt! I don't take pain, I deliver it.
  • I'm starting to think that I need to put you over my knee! A six-arm spanking is in order.
  • ENOUGH! [Unintelligible Eredun cursing]
  • No hug before you go?
  • Next time, eyes all the way up here.
  • Let's do this again real soon.
  • I always love our little chats.
  • Try not to forget that the Legion wants to burn all worlds, especially yours.

Combat ally[]

  • A simple task.
  • You called?
  • Your wish is my command.

Notes and trivia[]

  • During demon hunter's quest N Demon hunter [10-45] The Arcane Way it is revealed, that she had a liaison with Archmage Lan'dalock somehow.
  • Her title is a likely reference to the Matron Mothers found in Forgotten Realms lore, the powerful leaders of the matriarchal drow.
  • She has an invisible Follower recruiting spell with the following description: Achievement shivan Champion: Matron Mother Malevolence — "Malevolence has proven herself time and again to be an invaluable ally. It is an absolutely certainty that if it weren't for her, you would not be standing here. Her leadership skills are matched only by her mastery of demonic magic." The spell is associated to a buff that says "Matron Mother Malevolence is a master of fel magic, tactics, and inflicting pain."
