— Blademaster Telaamon

Blademaster Telaamon is a Lightforged draenei member of the Army of the Light who participated in the Argus Campaign and the Fourth War.

Biography

Early life

He was born on Argus and one of the draenei that fled on the Genedar, witnessing the Burning Legion turn the world into a bitter, dead husk.[2] He would later move to the Xenedar and became one of the Lightforged in the Army of the Light and a blademaster.

Legion

Telaamon was first seen at the Xenedar's crash site in the Shattered Fields in Krokuun. Later, serving with captain Fareeya's forces, he was in the process of securing an area in the Conservatory of the Arcane in Eredath for Prophet Velen along with Grand Vindicator Sorvos and Baraat the Longshot when the Legion came crashing down on them. Their captain then sent orders to regroup with the Prophet, through adventurers to the three soldiers.[3] High Exarch Turlayon then took charge of Telaamon and the other two who then escorted the Prophet to Arinor Gardens while they were searching for the Crest of Knowledge.[4] When they learned that the Crest was hidden away in the Seat of the Triumvirate, Telaamon returned to the Vindicaar.[5]

Battle for Azeroth

Telaamon would later join the Alliance along with the rest of the Army of the Light. During the Fourth War, he willingly joined a suicide mission in Nazmir to bait the Horde away from Dazar'alor while the Alliance invaded. As Telaamon explained to Halford Wyrmbane, he had seen what had happened to Argus due to some of his peoples' uncontrolled desire for power, and if the Horde was left unchecked he knew the same would happen to Azeroth.

He and Mathias Shaw resolved to stay behind.[6] Jaina Proudmoore thanked Telaamon for his noble sacrifice, after which he replied that he had fought the Legion longer than Jaina's known ancestry, and that all their paths led back to the Light, with Telaamon confronting Rokhan shortly afterwards.[7] At the Blood Gate in Zuldazar, Telaamon captured Rokhan who was soon rescued by Horde adventurers,[8] afterwhich the troll went ahead to scout and find the draenei.[9] In Nazmir, he sent mirror images to fight Witch Doctor Kejabu and Jo'chunga. The adventurers aided the Zandalari trolls and defeated the images, weakening Telaamon.[10] In Hir'eek's Lair, Telaamon once again fought with the trolls, but this time, ultimately fell to the combined onslaught of Rokhan, Jo'chunga, and Kejabu.[1]

Ultimately, Telaamon was willing to pay any price to ensure no one went through the same pain he did,[2] and though he was killed by the Horde, the diversion for which he and his team gave their lives was successful.[1] After the Battle of Dazar'alor, his torn body was found by Alliance scouts.[11]

Trivia

  • He seems to be a reference to Lews Therin Telamon from the The Wheel of Time book series. In addition to the name, most of his quotes seem to be based on quotes from there.
    • "I am one with the Light. The Light is with me" is probably a reference to Chirrut Îmwe from the 2016 film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, who repeatedly chants the phrase: "I am one with the Force. The Force is with me."
