Ranger Orestes is a blood elf Farstrider who accompanied Lor'themar Theron to the Valley of the Emperors. He and Blood Knight Aenea are tasked by the regent lord to fight their way through the valley and capture a mogu warlord for questioning.
He and Aenea do not appear to be the closest of friends.
Orestes returns in Legion, traveling to the Broken Shore along with a group of Farstriders. There he joins forces with Vereesa Windrunner to track down Alleria, Vereesa's elder sister and an old Farstrider herself, along with her fabled longbow, to ensure they do not fall into demon hands. Orestes points out that the mission is solely a personal one on Vereesa's behalf, which the Windrunner denies.
Orestes was instructed to remain behind while Vereesa and the hunter champion braved Niskara alone, but disobeys the order (admitting to having "never been good at following" them) and entered the demonic realm regardless. There, he was mortally wounded by Mistress Torvis, and an angered Vereesa swore to avenge him. With his dying breath, he encouraged Vereesa and the hero to save Alleria. His death was reported to Halduron Brightwing; Vereesa told the fallen ranger to rest in the Light.
