Group of Nightblades.

Nightblades are a faction within the night elves. They fought alongside the demigod Cenarius with the Shadowleaves, Moonhunters, and Starseekers against Grom Hellscream and the Warsong clan. With the help of Cenarius they destroyed three Warsong bases; the Moonhunters, the Starseekers and the Shadowleaves established themselves in the destroyed bases, from which they sent periodic attacks against the Warsong clan. However when Grom found the Chaos Well, he and his orcs drank from it and became chaos orcs. With their burst of power they attacked the night elves and killed Cenarius himself.[1]
