"Come cheer up, m'lads, 'tis to glory we steer-"
Corran Autumnlight is a Blood Elf warrior in the Thalassian militia known as The Sunguard, as well as a Silvermoon Inquisitorium Phoenix Guard. Formerly a lieutenant commander in the Thalassian Navy's Corps of Marines, he suffered a severe injury that nearly cost him a leg during the opening battles to secure a foothold on the Isle of Thunder in Pandaria and was medically discharged from the Navy for treatment and recuperation that lasted almost a year and a half. Upon his recovery, rather than re-enlist in the Navy, he chose to aid the Sunguard in their battle against the undead at the Dawnspire, and now serves as a Lightward in the Sunguard's Sunspear Battalion in addition to serving as a marine on the Bloody Lily under Captain Esme Sunshard.
Taller than most at 6'3", handsome and certainly more powerfully-built than the average sin'dorei male, Corran appears every inch the scion of a Thalassian military tradition dating back thousands of years of quel'dorei history. Short, shaggy jet-black hair tops a square-jawed face usually found set in an amiable grin. His skin is a dark shade of cocoa brown, but his most unusual feature is his eyes - thanks to the rarity of his actual visits to Silvermoon City between his career in the Navy and spending most of his off-duty time in the remote Autumnlight Village, his eyes never completed the change to fel-green as with most sin'dorei, instead ending up stuck at an odd shade of seafoam green, teal with a heavy dose of blue.
A thick, laid-back rural Thalassian drawl is carried in his deep, resonant baritone voice.
