Quotes

Gossip if a Kyrian
Greetings.
Gossip Do you remember your past life?
Precious little, in recent times.
The memories fade naturally as my former life draws ever more distant, and many others I have let go of willingly to fulfill my duties here.
Except...
Gossip Except what?
Except for one.
It can be difficult to think about. I know I should let it go but...I want...maybe need...to remember it.
It is too much a part of who I am to forget.
Gossip I'm listening.
I appreciate your listening. Truly. As soulbinds, I know I can trust you.
<Pelagos takes a deep breath, then exhales slowly.>
I had a female form in life. I don't recall my former name, or even my race, but I...never felt like my physical form represented who I was inside.
It never felt as clear to me then as it does now. I struggled with that identity for my entire life...
Gossip <Continue to listen.>
But when I arrived in Bastion I became an aspirant that looked like, well...
<Pelagos gestures to himself.>
This! A male form!
I felt...comfortable! Excited! Like who I was inside matched what others saw for the first time!
All of those feelings in my life finally made sense.
Gossip <Continue to listen.>
I may not reach ascension as fast as some, but I am truly happy on the path I follow.
Not many kyrian discuss their pasts, or even remember them! I believe we have much to learn as a people in that regard.
When I told Kleia, she listened--just as you have. And she has been as steadfast a friend as I could have hoped for--just as you have.
Thank you. I am glad that I was able to share my story with you.
Gossip Thank you for sharing it, Pelagos.
On approach if part of the Venthyr Covenant and are a Friend or higher
Kleia says: <Name>! Where are you traveling to, friend?
Pelagos says: More importantly, do you want companions along the way?
Gossip if part of the Venthyr Covenant and are not a Friend or higher
I had no idea that courts could be so compelling, <name>. truly the Ember Court is an incredible endeavor on your part.
Uniting the Shadowlands, one teacup at a time!
Obviously, it's much more than that. But still... who would've thought?
Gossip if part of the Venthyr Covenant and are a Friend or higher
If you have a moment, <name>, I've wanted to say something
<Pelagos takes a breath.>
I was hurt when you chose to champion Revendreth in our shared fight to save the Shadowlands. I had believed that you would have chosen to fight alongside me and the kyrian covenant.
But I see now why you chose the venthyr. Your Ember Court is uniting the entirety of the Shadowlands, as it once was--as it should be.
All that to say, I am glad we have become friends through all of this. We may not be soulbinds, but I feel we are bound together in another way.
If the player writes to him with the  [Quill of Correspondence], he responds with a Humble Letter

Notes

  • Pelagos broke ground as one of the first explicitly transgender characters in Warcraft series.
  • During the Shadowlands alpha, dialogue and quest text originally referred to Pelagos with the gender-neutral pronouns "they"/"them". This was changed after Blizzard received feedback that using "he"/"him" would be more respectful of the character's wishes to be identified as a man.[2]
