“What it means to be a Hand of Argus... We are agents of the Light. We serve without question. We die without question.”

— Vindicator Boros

Vindicator Boros is a draenei vindicator and a member of the Triumvirate of the Hand, the leaders of the Hand of Argus. He is initially found as a quest giver at Blood Watch on Bloodmyst Isle, and later moved in the Sanctum of Light beneath Light's Hope Chapel as a champion and leader of the Order of the Silver Hand.

He has dedicated himself to renew the sacred vows of the Hand of Argus at all costs and refuses to let their legacy die.[1] During the third invasion of the Burning Legion, he pledged the allegiance of the Hand of Argus to the reformed Order of the Silver Hand, and pledged his services to its new Highlord. As a member of the order's war council,[2] he participated in the meetings for important decisions, fought during the battle against Balnazzar and his army in the Netherlight Temple, and followed the Highlord in the Vindicaar for their campaign on Argus.


The Burning Crusade[]

Vindicator Boros is present at Blood Watch in Bloodmyst Isle from where he coordinates the troops of the Hand of Argus, with the other members of the Triumvirate of the Hand, to defeat Kael'thas's blood elves Sunfury who followed them to Azeroth,[3] but also clean up the damage caused by the crash of the Exodar on the fauna and flora of Bloodmyst Isle with the help of a draenei adventurer.[4]

After the discovery of the traitor eredar Sironas and her group of blood elves called the Sunhawks,[5] Prophet Velen created a battle plan and ordered Vindicator Boros to organize the military campaign so that they may end the blood elven menace once and for all.[6]

Following the plan of Velen, with the Sun Gate who has been destroyed[7] and Sironas and her Sunhawks were defeated; the Hand of Argus consequently prevented Prince Kael'thas from invading Kalimdor and corrupting the draenei into demons.[8]

Prophet's Lesson[]

As a member of the Triumvirate of the Hand, Boros is present during the meeting of the Hand of Argus to discuss their people's future on Azeroth in light of the Exodar's repair. With the Triumvirate, he agreed on the decision that, unless Velen ordered otherwise, within a week the Exodar would take flight for old Draenor to rebuild their second home on Outland and assist the Lost Ones remaining behind.

He is present when Velen himself emerged to quell the unrest between the Vindicators and the Alliance refugees, and announced the decision that the draenei and the Exodar would remain in Azeroth to combat the incoming threat with their allies of the Alliance.[9]


Legion This section concerns content related to Legion.

After the disaster at the Broken Shore and the death of Tirion Fordring, Vindicator Boros convened with the leaders of Azeroth's other paladin orders in Dalaran, and later joined the Order of the Silver Hand and their new leader at the Sanctum of Light during the third invasion of the Burning Legion.

Following the discovery of the Inv jewelcrafting taladitecrystal [Light's Heart], that crashed towards the coast of Suramar, and listening to the message of the High Exarch Turalyon to save Azeroth by bringing the heart of the naaru Xe'ra to the Prophet Velen, Boros was summoned at the request of Lord Grayson Shadowbreaker to be present during the meeting of the Silver Hand, as a leader of the Order, where he affirms that they should focus their efforts on tracking down the dreadlord Balnazzar, in order to bring justice.[10]

Following the Battle for the Exodar, he can be encountered at the Old Coast Path in Azsuna with Silver Hand Knights in order to keep a close eye on Legion movements, and possibly, strike a blow at the Legion's leadership by defeating Balnazzar who masterminds the attacks in that region.[11] However, Boros let himself be carried away by his anger and his desire for justice for all the draenei who died at the hands of the Legion, and launched the charge against all demons in lower Faronaar despite Justicar Julia Celeste's warnings about their lack of information on the enemy.[12]

Vindicator Boros was eventually captured by the Legion and locked up under the watch of the fel lord Jarvox, before being rescued by the Highlord of the Silver Hand and Justicar Julia Celeste, to which he apologized for letting himself be guided by rage, putting his mission and the lives of his men in prejudice.[13] Following his return to the Sanctum of Light, Boros once again thanked the Highlord for opening his eyes, then became a champion of the Silver Hand.[14]

He also aided a priest hero to claim Inv mace 1h artifactheartofkure d 01 [T'uure, Beacon of the Naaru] from the man'ari Lady Calindris after one of his wounded men, Defender Barrem, mentioned the artifact in his delirium.[15][16] He assisted the adventurer on Niskara where he resurected the draenei Alora,[17] rescued the trapped troll Bo'ja, and confronted an inquisitor called Subjugator Valith, the doomguard Captain Naranoth, and Lady Calindris with the help of the demon hunter Jace Darkweaver, before leaving the prison world with everyone.[18][19]

During the battle at the Netherlight Temple, he was present with the troops of the Silver Hand who came to support the priests of the Conclave. He fought against the hordes of demons summoned by Balnazzar, until Lothraxion and the Army of the Light came and helped them to eliminate the dreadlord for good.[20]

Velen rallies Vindicaar

The forces aboard the Vindicaar prepare to assault Argus.

He later escorted the forces of the Alliance and Horde to the Exodar in preparation for the Vindicaar's trip to Argus,[21] where he could be found at Darkfall Ridge fighting demons seeking to reach the Vindicaar.
