Their goal was to bring about the downfall of Stormwind.

Victims of the cult


  • Interestingly, in the non-canon RPG books, Mayor Ello Ebonlocke had already shown distaste for the King.
  • Watcher Ladimore was a member of the Veiled Hand during the Legion beta, but this was changed due to player objections.


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.

It is unknown why this change of allegiance happened and the only reason why they would convert. A reason could be the death of King Varian Wrynn. Alternatively Watcher Ladimore's words of dark magic being at play could be truer than she knew and the Night Watch could have been corrupted in some manner like Cordana Felsong was.
