Character's Name: Lanuria Dawnblade

Character's Name: Rothiron Malagan
Realm: Maelstrom
Level: 80
Age: (31 at time of death)
Current Residence: Ruins of Lordaeron
Short Back Story: Formerly a knight of Lordaeron, Rothiron fell like many others during the Third War in defense of Lordaeron. Upon his "rebirth" as Forsaken, he had lost many memories of his former life, but has since recovered them. Despite what his kinship would suggest, he is a genuinely kind and noble Forsaken, though this is often overshadowed by the Forsaken's grim reputation. In fact, he himself seems to prefer the company of the orcs, and received training from the Frostwolf clan despite all odds and prejudices.
Gaining prestige from his service to the New Horde, Rothiron created an order, and named it after Menethil's Guard, an old sect of guards in Lordaeron. However, this order was devastated by the Wrathgate betrayal, and has since declined even further to Rothiron's sorrow. In addition, Sylvanas' tactics in her battle against the Alliance in Lordaeron has given him cause to hesitate in serving her. When word got out that she abducted Koltira for making a truce with the Alliance, Rothiron feared that he would share whatever fate the death knight would suffer if he wasn't careful.
((Heres my attempt. It seems to be more than 7 lines, but its about 187 words, so I hope that passes.))
Character's Name: Arathanar Stouthammer
Age: 161
Current Residence: Pre-Cataclysm, Ironforge. Post-Cataclysm, unknown.
Back Story: Arathanar was an Explorer's League prospector, placed in charge of accumulating historical and archaeological data on the races of the Horde. He had been a member of the organization since the last days of Madoran Bronzebeard, when it was considered a backwater organization only slightly above criminal. As the war between the Horde and Alliance escalated after the Wrathgate, his position within the League and relation with the rest of the Alliance became... strained. SI:7 and Varian's attack on Ironforge and overthrow of Moira, who he sees as the highly dangerous but rightful ruler of Khaz Modan, was the final straw. Revoking his own citizenship and effectively leaving the Alliance, he has spent the few months after the Cataclysm among various neutral factions where he can, aiding the Earthen Ring in Vashj'ir and Deepholm.
Character's Name: Carmila Suntreader

Realm: Earthen Ring

Level: 104

Age: 70

Current Residence: Eversong Forest (not by choice)

Short Back Story: Carmila was an orphan, taking care of herself for the longest time. When she was old enough, she invested in going to the Church of the Light and becoming a paladin. After several grueling years, she obtained the honor only to be met with human prejudice and trials that she refused to do. After being exiled from the Church, she left the Alliance and went to join the Argent Crusade against the Lich King. After the Lich King's death, she found herself adopted into one of her friend's family since she didn't have one of her own. She recently found out she is with child and is freaking out.
Character's Name: Aaja

Level: 80
Age: Almost 400 but she really doesn't keep track these days.
Current Residence: Stormwind
Short Back Story: After helping to defend Shattrath during it's razing by the Legion, Aaja eventually returned to the ruined city to live in the slums and try and keep the peace with a ragged band of volunteers before the Sha'tar arrived. Through a series of unfortunate events, she found herself becoming indebted to a Nexus Prince and now works in almost an indentured capacity to repay what she owes. She has arrived on Azeroth only recently to bring a branch of her boss's company to the Eastern Kingdoms, importing goods from Draenor to sell on Azeroth, and vice-versa.
Name: Aman'ni (Eclipse) Shadowbringer
Realm: Thunderhorn
Level: Obvious
Age: In the thousands, she won't give an exact number
Current Residence: None
Short Backstory: Though very young at the time, Aman'ni was alive during the Sundering. After being exiled from the Sisters of Elune for being overzealous in her beliefs and forcing them upon a skeptical man, the priestess gave more and more to her affinity for the shadow arts, ever keeping in mind the balance of light and darkness. Her age has granted her much patience and wisdom, though she chooses not to fully involve herself in what she considers trivial matters. Remaining vigilant to the threats that many younger adventurers cannot handle or understand, she humbly walks the nights of Azeroth.

She learned the old traditions of living with the land and venerating the Earthmother. She passively watched the Confederation of Tauren rise and rally behind the Horde to save Azeroth from a terrible fate. However, she also watched as the Alliance and Horde fought like children over pointless endeavors to “claim” land.
Angry with the now petty war between the Alliance and the Horde, she has pulled her tribe from the Confederacy to reclaim the old banner as protectors of the Earthmother. Kurshaw and her tribe now work to protect Kalimdor from those who would foul the land. She remains neutral to both factions out of a need to preserve her tribe and the nature of her goal.

Character's Name: Hadhan Discori

Realm: Wyrmrest Accord

Level: 80

Age: 38

Current Residence: Stormwind, Cathedral District (I pretend he has an apartment above "Just Maces")

Back Story: Born and raised in Stormwind, Hadhan was loath to settle into the routine of the noble life he was born into, much to the dismay of his family. Instead, he enlisted with the Stormwind militia as soon as he was old enough and spent his early adulthood serving his home city and protecting the people within. When he turned twenty-one, he was granted an adventuring license and set out to test his will and his prowess against the unknown dangers of Azeroth.

Now, many years and many adventures later, Hadhan is at the doorstep of middle-age but he knows that his adventurous lifestyle is far from over. Doomsayers have begun spreading dangerous propaganda amidst the streets of his beloved city, and rumors spread of an unknown terror stirring in the dark reaches of the world. If Hadhan is to ever bring peace to Stormwind, he will have to keep his weapons sharp and his resolve strong...His only hope is that whatever difference he can make will be enough....
