Magi from the city-state of Dalaran, the Kirin Tor, had come to Stormwind. It didn't take long for a crowd to begin to gather around the unfamiliar scene, the magi standing in absolute silence as though awaiting something. The crowd prattled, eyes catching the display from time to time as they continued on about the foreign object amongst themselves, as they tried to figure out what the meaning of this unfamiliar display was all about.
The violet crystals hummed with life, their magical light intensifying slowly, bringing the crowd to immediately hush as they stepped back in awe. A ray of indigo light shot forth from each of the crystals, linking to the center of the circle. A soft crackling sound filled the area as the scent of ionized air grasped everyone gathered. Suddenly, the colliding energies sparked, flashing a bright light which blinded the crowd for a brief moment. When they opened their eyes, the translucent image of an elderly man stood before them.
"Greetings citizens of Stormwind. I am Archmage Tenethil Umbranor, and I come to you with news from Dalaran. The Council of Six has spoken! Under the leadership of Archmage Jaina Proudmoore, the Kirin Tor, and brave heroes of the Alliance have removed the Horde from our grand city and has committed the forces of Dalaran and the Kirin Tor to the Grand Alliance.
As the Kirin Tor can no longer remain neutral in the war against the Horde, the Council of Six has taken precautions to ensure the fate of Azeroth does not fall into the hands of Warchief Garrosh Hellscream and his wretched forces of darkness. The Kirin Tor has sent numerous battalions of their finest men and women around the world to combat the Horde war machine.
The Council of Six has given myself, Archmage Tenethil Umbranor a new charge. Under my supervision; the faction known formerly as the Sanctum has been disbanded and reformed into a hopeful bastion of Dalaran's future. On this day, the Sanctum has been renamed the Violet Legion in honor of their new role within the Kirin Tor. Those willing to secure the salvation of Azeroth should speak with a Violet Legion recruitment officer immediately.
May the efforts of the Kirin Tor and the Violet Legion bring forth a bright future for the Alliance and Azeroth. - May the flows of magic bring you prosperity."
With those final words, the energy between the crystals flickered, the image of the Archmage fading away before the eyes of Stormwind's onlookers. The Kirin Tor magi raised their staves, tapping the apex of their arcanic weapons together as they chanted a spell before the audience in front of them. An illusionary, arcane symbol of Dalaran took shape above the city streets as the magi and their device vanished from sight.
As the crowd stood in awe from the news, cheers came forth from the gathered crowd "Down with the Horde!" Another "See Hellscream, and his pigs burn for what they've done to the Alliance!" Grand Vizier Morvayn Karnstein of the Violet Legion made his way to the center of the assembled masses. "Raise your blades with the Violet Legion, and we wil enact our vengeance on the Horde. We will see the end of Warchief Hellscream's vile legions. We will see them cower and flee beneath our banners. We will show no mercy!" The wizard paused as cheers came up through the crowds, arms and weapons raised in return to their claim.
