The Sunguard


Chaotic Neutral





The Sunguard is a political and military organization tasked with the defense of the Kingdom of Quel'Thalas under leadership of the New Horde.

With the defense of Quel'Thalas at the forefront of the Sunguard's purpose, the Archon has seen fit to open up the ranks to include all honored Horde races. A unified front seeks to defend the ideals and tenets from those that would seek to eradicate the rebuilding of the Sin'dorei

Showing upon the bulletins in each capital city of the Horde is a silken red flag with an emblazoned gold flame. Written on the parchment in an elegant script is the following:

“The bell of war tolls over the eternal spring of Quel’Thalas. The formerly peaceful meadows and glades of the Sin’dorei homeland lay tainted and ridden with conflict. Undead roam freely in the haunted Ghostlands, which stands as a terrible reminder of the betrayal from humanity. Our enemies encroach upon our boarders with a hungering ferocity and we shall rise up to defeat them. As the shield of the high home, The Sunguard will prevail against foes both foreign and domestic. We are true, honest, and brave. We are just, strong, and honorable. Our oath to Quel’Thalas is unwavering and bound to our very souls. To those threatening the Children of Blood, the Crimson Crusade will know no mercy.”

-Felthier Truefeather, Archon of the Sunguard
The Dreadnaught of Quel’Thalas


Established six years ago on the eve of the invasion of Northrend, the Sunguard was formed to protect the life and property of the Sin'dorei in Quel'Thalas. Since then it has expanded and grown to a fully developed private military force often used by the Thalassian State. Unlike the ambitious counterparts in the rest of the Sin'dorei military, the Sunguard holds codes of conduct and honor above all else.

Several noble Houses focused funding and servitude to create a new establishment of soldiery dedicated to defending their home. These Houses called upon their own banners, to establish an armed militia. Mimicking the Royal Thalassian Armed Services, these fighting men and women donned the idyllic colors of crimson and gold and their mission is to bring a new dawn to the people of Quel'Thalas.

Divisions of the Sunguard

The majority of members compose the traditional aspect of the organization, known as the Oathsworn. These soldiers swear an oath of fealty to Quel’Thalas and the betterment of their kin. The Oathsworn are divided into different categories based on their differing roles in battle.

At the helm of the Sunspear Battalion, Knight Commander Sakialyn Emberstar leads a force consisting Death Knights, Paladins, and Warriors. They constitute of our largest segment of soldiers and retainers and make up the majority of the Sunguard’s infantry and cavalry.

The Suncasters are commanded by Grand Arcanist Azriah Thelryn. This division is made up of Priests, Magi, and Warlocks who perform ranged arcanic support and magistrate services. They have a long tradition of respect, power, and devotion unique to those of the ability.

The Pathfinders are composed of agents of the Thalassian State and Farstriders. Commanded by Vaelrin Firestorm, these agents commonly engage in missions involving assassination, ambush, and espionage.

The Dawnmenders, led by under the command of Sunward Elleynah Stormsummer, are the Sunguard’s division of dedicated medical personal. They are dutiful to the protection and wellbeing of the Sunguard and its allies. Skilled in healing, each Dawnmender serves bravely in battle as well in the infirmary.

Finally, having recently merged with the Sunguard as a whole, a sect of Illidari servitors and demon hunters, known as the Cabal of the Dying Sun, under the commander of Asteryn Truefeather have ended their war against the Burning Legion. They serve as shock forces and versatile units to fill any critical role within the Sunguard's armed forces.

Sworn Houses

There are several noble houses sworn to duty. The Sunguard uses their lands and income to fund their various wars or to supplement their forces. While not all are Thalassian based, all of them share the common goal of the Sunguard.

While there are many sworn houses the Sunguard, the vast majority of soldiery within the Sunguard's army come from the provinces of the Dawnspire and the Emberlight.

House Truefeather :

Their seat found at the Dawnspire, an ancient stronghold created at Quel’Thalas’ founding. House Truefeather is the cornerstone of the Sunguard’s soldiery. Wealthy and long lived, the House Truefeather has survived in the higher echelons of court for several centuries. At the helm sits Felthier Truefeather. Their prized professions are strong infantry and knightly heavy cavalry. House Truefeather also supports the Sunguard’s naval arm named the Crimson Fleet which is currently moored at Sundial Anchorage.

The lands of Dawnspire are a luscious and fertile lowland stretching long and narrow between the peaks of Sha’laran and Duskstar Mountains. The seat of House Truefeather sits at the Dawnspire Citadel. The castle is a sprawling fortress that spans eleven massive towers and can hold a garrison of a thousand household soldiers.

House Netherstar:

House Netherstar is composed of several titles and holdings found in the misty vales of the Emberlight. The Netherholde is the seat of the ancient Sin’dorei nobility which Izulde Netherstar sits at its head. Famed for prized pyromancers and spellbreakers, House Netherstar is a strong supporter of the Sunguard’s endeavors across the world. It has rallied to their aid many times over.
