Night Elves

   The reclusive night elves cultivated a druidic society for ten thousand years in the forests of Ashenvale. However, the Invasion of the Burning Legion tore that peace away from the quiet group. Arch-Druid Malfurion Stormrage and High Priestess Tyrande Whisperwind led the Kaldorei against the onslaught of the Legion. With the aid of the humans and orcs, they were able to halt the advance and defeat their leader, Archimonde. Even with the victory, they suffered a great loss, their immortality.
 

   As the Kaldorei began rebuilding their homes, everyone started understanding their new mortality. Many could not adjust to the thought of aging and disease and began seeking a way to gain immortality again. This search birthed a  plan to plant a special tree that could link their spirits with the world. Malfurion, hearing about the idea, warned that nature would not bless this act. A short time after, Malfurion's spirit was lost within the Emerald Dream.
 

   Fandral Staghelm, the leader of the group who wished to plant the new world tree, rose to power, becoming the new Arch-Druid. Immediately after, he and his group of druids went and planted the tree, Teldrassil, off the coasts of Kalimdor. With their powers, they raised the massive tree, and the city of Darnassus came to be. But as Malfurion had warned, the tree was not blessed by nature and fell to the corruption of the Legion.
