* DramaticallyMissingThePoint: Turalyon spends a lot of the book in religion induced doubt, as he can't reconcile the fact that the Light (specifically its capacity for goodness) resides in everyone with the way the orcs are AlwaysChaoticEvil. He resolves these doubts not by realizing that the orcs are not as bad as he thinks they are, but by finding a (later established to be fundamentally untrue) loophole that lets him denounce the orcs as purely evil without compromising the Light's inherent benevolence.

** Early in the book, Khadgar tells the Kirin Tor about how Garona told him that the Orcs used to be a much more peaceful race of honorable warriors who never fought with one another. In ''[[Literature/WarcraftTheLastGuardian The Last Guardian]]'', what Garona told him was that Orcs were a race of violent savages who were in constant conflict and razed unused land just so rival clans couldn't use the resources.

After the Kingdom of [[strike:Azeroth]] Stormwind is conquered by TheHorde in the First War, its surviving people flee with ships to Lordaeron, led by their champion, Anduin Lothar.

Lothar is appointed the Grand Marshal of the Alliance's armies and is joined by a group of other heroes such as Turalyon, a young paladin, Alleria Windrunner, an elven ranger and Khadgar, a wizard.

Meanwhile Orgrim Doomhammer, the [[KlingonPromotion self-promoted]] Warchief of the Horde, has rid his people of TheMagocracy led by demon-worshipping warlocks.

* BlackAndWhiteMorality: Orgrim Doomhammer and Kilrogg Deadeye are pretty much the only orcs who get portrayed positively at all, and even they openly want to commit genocide on all Azerothian races to prevent themselves from suffering a death by starvation. And yet, [[FanDumb some fans think the Orcs get portrayed too positively]].

* FantasticRacism: After [[spoiler: the death of Lothar]], Turalyon realizes the Orcs are not from Azeroth and are not of the Light. He considers them nothing more than creatures that have no good in them and need to be slain.

* FantasticRacism: After [[spoiler: the death of Lothar]], Turalyon realizes the Orcs are not from Azeroth and are not of the Light. He considers them nothing more than creatures that have no good in them and need to be slain. This is the catalyst needed to access his Light powers- before, he had trouble believing the orcs could be part of the Light, since it binds all creatures on Azeroth.
