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 you write to him with the  [Quill of Correspondence], he responds with a Humble Letter
Humble Letter 1
My friend,
I am uncertain if you intended to convey a sense of sadness in your previous letter--perhaps I have misread it.
Either way, I would like to offer you a word of encouragement.
You have made tremendous progress in uniting the Shadowlands behind your Prince.
The heroes of our realms rally behind your banner as you charge ahead into the unknown.
The villains of our realms cower at the mere mention of your name.
And I am proud to call you my friend.
Sincerely, Pelagos
Pelagos
P.S. Kleia wants you to know that she's proud of you too!
Humble Letter 2
My friend,
It was good to hear from you. I wrote back as soon as I was able, and I hope you will do the same.
I love reading the stories of your adventures, particularly when you journey with others united in purpose.
Tell me, <name>, what is the most inspiring moment of sacrifice and bravery you have witnessed from a comrade in battle?
I could use a little extra inspiration today.
Your friend,
Pelagos

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]
