The Westfall Brigade, formerly known as the People's Militia, is primarily a human organization comprised of citizens of Westfall and veteran militiamen that fought back the Defias Brotherhood. They distinguished themselves during the war against the Lich King, the results of the Cataclysm and the third invasion of the Burning Legion.

Originally formed as the People's Militia, the organization began its life as a volunteer military organization based in Westfall and focused on defeating the Defias Brotherhood. It was founded because the general notice in the area was that "Stormwind has abandoned Westfall". The initiative was based in Sentinel Hill but protectors could also be found wandering various nearby roads. Members of the militia also enlisted young adventurers to thin out the local gnoll population and deal with other various threats. Their leader, Gryan Stoutmantle, directed them from the lower section of Sentinel Tower in Sentinel Hill.

Wrath of the Lich King

Under the command of Gryan Stoutmantle, promoted to the rank of Captain, they were a part of the Valiance Expedition in Northrend. The Westfall Brigade Encampment was nestled as their headquarters in the northern reaches of the Grizzly Hills, and have been charged with finding a route into the northern territories and to secure secondary resource points in the Grizzly Hills.[1][2]

Following the war against the Lich King and their tour of duty in Northrend, the Brigade returned home to Westfall, where they found that the cost of the war had left thousands homeless, who then migrated to Westfall to squat on many of the abandoned properties.[2]

Prior to the Cataclysm, the Brigade was mobilized through Westfall in order to bring order and defeat the last remaining Defias. According to one of their officer, morale was rather low among the troops, consisting mostly of militiamen and not soldiers, which sometimes led to conflicts for food.[3]

Sentinel Hill following the Cataclysm.

Following the Cataclysm, the Brigade had fortified Sentinel Hill, and with the full support of King Varian Wrynn started working on cleaning up the mess left behind by the Defias Brotherhood, expanding the reach of the Alliance and maintaining order.[4]

A company of Sentinel Hill troopers, led by Captain Alpert, was sent to Moonbrook in order to watch and protect the town.[5] They established a small Alliance outpost at the edge of the town to ensure their mission.
