Leyara was a powerful Druid of the Flame with a strong hatred towards Malfurion Stormrage.


As the proud wife of Valstann Staghelm, she was devastated by his loss during the War of the Shifting Sands. At some point she lived with her daughter, Istaria, in relative peace in Ashenvale until the Horde launched its assault in the region during the Cataclysm, causing Istaria's death. Reeling from the loss of her daughter and highly disillusioned with Malfurion's passive stance in regards to the Horde, Leyara was discovered by her father-in-law Fandral Staghelm. Fandral, now aligned with Ragnaros and Deathwing, was able to induct Leyara into the new order of corrupted druids serving Ragnaros - the Druids of the Flame.

After being inducted, Leyara snuck into Mount Hyjal to find and kill Malfurion. During her search she met Hamuul Runetotem, defeating him in battle leaving him for dead. Some time afterwards, Malfurion and a band of adventurers confronted her. Leyara told them that Fandral was a true leader and that Malfurion was nothing more than a desperate dreamer with no strength to lead anyone, and that the Night Elves would see through his weakness. Malfurion warned her that Fandral has been corrupted but Leyara, unheeding of Malfurion's warnings, threatened to kill his companions as she did Hamuul... Only for Hamuul to arrive, having survived his injuries despite her assertion that she had seared the life from his body. Hamuul told her that he would release her from her pain, and hoped that she could finally find peace in death.
