This article contains lore taken from Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos, Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne, the manuals, and/or official bonus maps.

The Mistress of Shadows was an elven spellcaster within the Tomb of the Ancients in Dustwallow Marsh, the abode of the undead Lord Talendar. Unlike her host, the Mistress of Shadows nor her six Maidens of Shadows remained alive, and she studied within one of the Tomb's libraries. Despite the shadow and arcane powers at her command, she was slain by Rexxar and his companions during the events of the Founding of Durotar.[1]

This article or section includes speculation, observations or opinions possibly supported by lore or by Blizzard officials. It should not be taken as representing official lore.

The Mistress of Shadows was likely a Highborne night elf, considering Talendar's obsession for arcane magic and the lack of other arcane-wielding races on Kalimdor. While the Tomb is located in Dustwallow Marsh, there are definitive night elf ruins at Nightmare Scar in the Barrens, and the Magistrates Temple is located nearby. The make and adornment of the Tomb is thoroughly unlike that of other natives of Kalimdor, and is the same at the caverns under Stonetalon Peak, likely of Highborne origin as well.
