A character concept/fanfiction idea I had: A single mother in her forties must return to the craft of her youth and family when she is dismissed from her job as a school teacher, becoming a "Consulting Mystic" for the dark arts. She takes all manner of jobs investigating all manner of strange, dark, or demonic happenings in order to try and continue to give her young son a good life.
The story would be a "common man's" view of the Warcraft universe- the action never actually leaving Stormwind city, but the politics and greater conflicts influencing the plot to varying degrees- she encounters persons of all classes and races in her work, ranging from adventures and heroes to traveling merchants, scholars, etc. Another big thing would be "normalizing" some of the elements of the Warcraft universe, both the woman and her son are refuges from Gilneas, and afflicted with the Worgen Curse, but she treats the same way a modern day person might treat living with bipolar disorder or epilepsy, she continues to live her life best she can while treating the symptoms, and tries to do the same for her son. Inner City politics would be another big one: the poor/rich dived, the Warlocks having to stay hidden despite being on the Alliance's side, the treatment of non-human races, etc all being involved in the plot.
The woman herself is hard-lined and earnest, with a high value set on discipline, hard work, and education. But despite being though and sometimes harsh on him she does genuinely care for her son, who means the world to her, and everything she does is ultimately for him. The bond between them, and their relationship as mother and son would be over reaching central theme of the story, though out which the boy grows up from shy and reserved child to a strong willed young man in his own right.
