Stories of Tyr were the inspiration for the Order of the Silver Hand. He's like the proto-paladin. If he were to return, Tyr could be to the Silver Hand what Cenarius is to the Cenarion Circle.
except that's assuming of course that he does return. We didn't find him in ulduar, we didn't see him a lot of the areas opened by the cataclysm or any titan stations in Azeroth including Uldum, and now excluding Pandaria and the South Seas (which I really doubt he'd be in for either) we have access to the entire world of Azeroth and we haven't seen any hint of him anywhere. What makes you think that if he hasn't surfaced now that we will in soon. Also if you think that he will surface in MoP, then I'd like to ask you, what do you think is so much more important in the discovery of a new sub-continent than an old god controlling your allies and attempting to take over the world via using indirect control over an entire legion of undead?
Yes, he died and got brought back as an undead who still retains his paladin powers even after death and looks exactly the same. That's the most logical and least convoluted explanation.
it's an explanation nonetheless, I provided the possible situations, it's not up to me to decide how convoluted they are. Also in case you haven't noticed, I was actually just kidding about it. I thought you would catch on when you read it. Apparently not.

... why do you have more development and appearing in game in quotations? I didn't use those words.
Alliance fans have been clamoring for Turalyon's return for years and Blizzard knows it. I should hope they've learned enough from recent criticism to avoid turning that event into a colossal disappointment.
Well remember when Malfurion, Cenarius, and the other guardians of Hyjal returned? Well it was exactly the same. The moment that after 6 years of the night elf fans waiting for the guardians to reawaken and see their beloved forests burning and massacred by the Horde, and they decide to become their allies. It's the most convoluted thing that can occur, but it wouldn't be the first time that Blizzard made a well-known Alliance character (or in this case, Alliance characters) into a neutral faction/group. Another well-known example is Tirion, and interestingly enough Tirion's opposite Eitrigg joined the Horde and Tirion did not join the Alliance.
But the point I'm trying to make is that despite how in lore, things would never happen, for the sake of game mechanics, Blizzard is able to create the most convoluted things occur and overturn lore when lore demands something happen or not happen in order to make the game slightly more enjoyable.
Arator is the son of Turalyon and Alleria, both of whom earned giant statues in Stormwind City. The people of Stormwind would view him as "the son of two legendary heroes", not "some mongrel half-elf".
Well everyone needs a fresh start with something. Even if his parents are famous and well-know you have to realize that there is a difference between heroes of old and heroes of new. People might have been used to the idea that Turalyon and Alleria are gone and have "sacrificed" themselves for the greater good. If they learn that Arator is their son, there's a chance that the people of Stormwind might be angry with him for not returning sooner as he might have helped things in recent situations. So that might be enough to stop him from gaining any kind of position of leadership.
