The Messiah is no longer a trope. Please readd under an actual trope.
- The Messiah:
- Not readily apparent in this story, but definitely foreshadowed. Tirion is the ONLY truly good paladin in the entire franchise, and he is the ONLY human capable of instantly realizing that the Horde isn't necessarily evil. This comes to a head in Wrath of the Lich King, when he asks Thrall to allow Eitrigg to come to Northrend and help him against the Lich King.
- Tirion was insulted and stripped of his powers of the Light by Uther, who claimed Tirion "wasn't a true paladin"...Tirion is the one who purifies the Ashbringer with a touch and personally brings about the death of Arthas and the Heel–Face Turn of the Knights of the Ebon Blade. Ironically, the Order that exiled him and was indirectly responsible for his family's death ends up making him their unquestioned Highlord by the time of WOTLK.
