Why, Blizzard!?

General Discussion
I was going through the dungeon journal yesterday, looking at the upcoming raid bosses when I came across this: http://www.wowpedia.org/Lei_Shi

Why would you do this? This will be the one raid boss that I will feel awful for killing. Just look at her abilities! "Afraid: Lei Shi grows more afraid as players hurt her. She gains 1% casting speed for each 1 percent health of her total health lost." She literally runs away and hides from us, and we have to burn her out of hiding. She has another ability called Get Away! where she sprays water at us to push us away.

But really, just reading that description for Afraid made me feel horrible, knowing that ultimately I will be smashing this poor water sprite in the face. And then looking at her description in the dungeon journal: "For countless years, this friendly water spirit frolicked in the Fountains of Endless Spring with childlike wonder and glee. When fighting suddenly broke out in this peaceful place, Lei Shi saw the crystal-clear water turn cloudy and murky, and terror fell over her mind."

Why would you do this to me, Blizzard? Why must I feel real regret for killing virtual things and looting their bodies?!
She's too cute to kill! *sadpanda*
D:
Oh god, that's awful!

EDIT:
Fixed spelling.
You will serve the Horde or be crushed beneath it. Even if you're a mostly harmless water spirit with the mind of a child.
Aww I just want to hug her. Poor thing.
Well, at least this will give my DK a chance to easily sate the whole pain and agony addiction.
so is it Lei Shi we're killing, or the possessing entity (presumably the Sha of Fear)?

I'll tell myself it is the Sha we're killing...
I came in here expecting an important character from Warcraft lore. Instead it's just some weebos talking about how kawaii (^-^)/ some ridiculous little creature is.
Based on what I am seeing, these are the quotes when you defeat her.

"I...ah...oh! Did I...? Was I...? It was so cloudy."
"I have to go now."
"I have to make the water not cloudy anymore. Will... will you help?"

Sounds to me like she will be just fine, just need to bring her back to a state of normalcy.

I'm hoping. Based on her quotes this seems likely. BUT STILL. D:

Some quotes from WoWpedia:
Aggro: "I did not want to have to do this!"
Kills a Player: "Sorry!"
Casting Get Away!: "Stay away from me!"

Ok, says the blood elf.

You're an orc, you picked a funny time to start caring about killing things.

There was only one way to stay horde and play a pally at the time. I ain't about to pay $25 to change my race.

Orcs only care about killing things when they can't be used to pave roads.
