“The bell of war tolls over the eternal spring of Quel’thalas. The formerly peaceful meadows and glades of the Sin’dorei homeland lay tainted and ridden with conflict. Undead roam freely in the haunted Ghostlands, which stands as a terrible reminder of the betrayal from humanity. Even now, Alliance partisans dare set foot in our territory and lay arms against our kin. Like beasts, they defiled our women and put our children to the sword, all the while bringing fire to what little we hold dear—until now. As the shield of the high home, The Sunguard will prevail against foes both foreign and domestic. We are true, honest, and brave. We are just, strong, and honorable. Our oath to Quel’thalas is unwavering and bound to our very souls. To those threatening the Children of Blood, the Crimson Crusade will know no mercy.”
-Felthier Truefeather, Archon of the Sunguard
The Dreadnaught of Quel’thalas
Established four years ago on the eve of the invasion of Northrend, the Sunguard was formed to protect the life and property of the Sin'dorei in Quel'thalas. Since then it has expanded and grown to a fully developed military arm of the Thalassian State. Unlike the ambitious counterparts in the rest of the Sin'dorei military, the Sunguard holds codes of conduct and honor above all else.
As hundreds of the Silvermoon's finest warriors left Quel'Thalas to fight in Northrend against the Scourge, the territory was soon left defenseless against Alliance invasion. Attacks against various settlements in Eversong, pillaging, and murder were frequent during this time with the lack of a strong security force. Regent Lord Lor'themar Theron could not rely on his allies for help.
Several noble Houses focused funding and servitude to create a new establishment of soldiery dedicated to defending their home. These Houses called upon their own banners, and local citizenry to establish an armed militia. As significant strength had been sent to Northrend to avenge the devastation of their homeland, the Sunguard's soldiers are raised in their wake. Mimicking the Royal Thalassian armed services, these fighting men and women donned the idyllic colors of crimson and gold. Their mission was to bring a new dawn to the people of Quel'thalas.
Already, the Orcs, Trolls, Tauren, and Forsaken were in a heated conflict with their own Alliance problems. It was then that the Sunguard was created, an integrated regiment of knights, rangers, and casters sworn to defend the land from any foe poised to assault Quel'thalas and her people. The Sunguard was sworn to defend and honor Silvermoon City, as well as everything else that remained of their homeland.
Written here are the established workings of the Sunguard's order of Oathsworn wardens and their Alizarin allies. Drawing on several years of constant conflict, adventure, and rich heritage, this chronicling will describe their means and doings.
