Koltira Deathweaver, who serves as the Horde version of Thassarian, has a long and interesting back story. For the sake of moving this along, I’ll pick up his back story at the beginning of the Cataclysm.
The Koltira Deathweaver back story
After the events of the Wrath of the Lich King and entering Cataclysm, Alliance forces and the Forsaken began fighting for control of Andorhal in the Western Plaguelands. Thassarian led the Alliance forces while Koltira led the Horde. During the battle for Andorhal, both sides also had to deal with the remaining Scourge. It was battle with the common enemy that ultimately led to a truce between Thassarian and Koltira.Human militia groups pop up attacking Koltira’s forces, shenanigans ensue, and Koltira turns to another NPC, Lindsay Ravensun. Plot twist, Ravensun turns out to be Dark Lady Sylvanas in disguise, and she’s none to happy that Koltira has been calling truces with the alliance. She sends in her own troops to assault the alliance. Once they’ve secured victory, Sylvanas, angry with the Koltira for demonstrating compassion and mercy toward Thassarian, forces Koltira through a portal to the Undercity where she promises to purge him of his compassionate tendencies and ensure he’s a servant of the Horde – or reading between the lines – a servant of Sylvanas herself.

So that’s it, the last time we saw Koltira he was being spirited away by Sylvanas for some Forsaken style brain washing (actually do Forsaken eat brains?). As part of the Death Knight Order Hall Campaign we’re stumble upon Koltira again, or more accurately, we’re sent in to rescue him.Koltira has a key role to play in the Death Knight campaign as it’s with his help that we begin the process of raising the new Four Horsemen (remember those crazy kids from Naxxramas that we put an end to?).
