— T'paartos becoming a Lightforged draenei

T'paartos is a Lightforged draenei located aboard the Vindicaar as a new trainee in the Army of the Light, formerly from the draenei who originally settled in Draenor. While undertaking the trials to become a Lightforged, he faced his memories and fears in the Forge of Aeons area.


Originally, T'paartos was apparently part of the group of draenei who crash-landed with the Genedar on Argus with Prophet Velen. As a child, T'paartos lived near a marsh on Draenor where he was bullied for being fat and simple-minded. He would befriend animals such as frogs, elekk, and bugs, but never snakes. When he was scared he would hide in a cave, but in one situation ended up facing an angered earth elemental. He felt no one could hurt him if he remained alone.[1]

T'paartos raised an elekk named Ika when its mother was killed. As an adult, he became stronger but grew boastful of his strength (something he later found embarrassing). He never got over his fear of snakes, and still felt inadequate inside. He, however, faced many demons as a member of the Army of the Light.

As part of his trial to become Lightforged, T'paartos faced his memories and fears, striking down physical manifestations of them. His Lightforged trial with him confronting T'paartos the Fallen, an image of his darkness who tempted him to leave the Light behind and embrace the fel. T'paartos, declaring that the Light had always been with him, conquered his darkness, slaying his fallen counterpart, and in the process successfully became Lightforged.[1]

Afterwards, Turalyon mentioned that T'paartos would serve their people's cause well, and the enthusiastic draenei can occasionally be seen departing the Vindicaar through the portal to Stormwind City, shouting his own name as he seemingly becomes an adventurer.
