Malderas Bloodwrath is a blood elfwarlock ostensibly serving the Reliquary, though in truth he has little interest in their long-term goals. Rather, he uses his position as a high-ranking examiner for his own ends, gaining access to ancient tomes and magical artifacts to sate his endless thirst for power.
In the months that followed, Malderas set out to investigate an artifact responsible for temporal anomalies and its creator, the renegade bronze dragonKairozdormu. This led him to join the Sunsworn in venturing through the Dark Portal to Draenor as part of an advance scouting party. In time his investigation led him to Hellfire Citadel where he discovered a fragment of the Vision of Time that had been used to link Draenor and Azeroth. Aborbing the last vestiges of its magical energy, Malderas witnessed a brief vision: an individual both like and unlike himself imprisoned within an ancient vault.
