In the RPG

Icon-RPG.png This section contains information from the Warcraft RPG which is considered non-canon.
"Nijel's Point is one of the only Alliance camps in Desolace, overseen by the Alliance military and led by Captain Pentigast. In addition, Remulos, son of Cenarius, has dispatched members of his Cenarion Circle here to try recover Zaetar's remains from Maraudon. The night elves rebuild here on the site some of their ancient ruins. The Cenarion Circle members are led by Keeper Marandis."[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.

Nobody seems to know (or at least say) who Nijel is or was, not even the people living there. Most probably, he was the founder of the ancient town there which now lies in ruins.
