The inspiration for this character may come from a notorious player who became well-known on the US-Stonemaul server in the early days of WoW. The forsaken Shadow priest, also named 'Booms', was known for terrorizing Alliance players passing through Menethil Harbor by using his [Mind Control] to extort gold from them. At that time, Mind Control had a 1-minute duration, and diminishing returns had yet to be added to the game. Booms would use this to hold Alliance players to ransom, demanding that they pay a toll to his Alliance alt Boomsbot before he would release them. In 2011, the original player of Booms passed away from heart complications, so this NPC was created as an in-game memorial for him.
