Centaur’s Origin—by Celebras the Redeemed

Cavindra the Dryad: Legends of Maraudon

A dark satyr called Lord Vyletongue spread his evil through these twisting caves, poisoning the minds of all inside. He still resides beyond the purple crystals.

Vyletongue also created a living symbol of his corruption called Noxxion that dwells beyond the orange crystals. Together, they have stolen the two parts of my brother’s scepter. Celebras, my brother… he wanders blindly inside, cursed by corruption.

You must help him! Find the pieces, and speak to my brother… somehow.

Recover the two parts of the Scepter of Celebras: the Celebrian Rod and the Celebrian Diamond

Celebras the Redeemed

Thank you for what you have done.  Keep the scepter safe:  may it aid you in your toll against the evils that have invaded this place …

Long ago, my dryad sisters and I entered these caves to free the tortured spirit of my uncle, Zaetar.  However, the corruption that had already spread through these caverns soon overcame us, and we too fell.

We were destined to wander these passages; the toxins poisoning our minds …  Although my spirit may now be at rest.  I know that I have failed in my mission.  It is a great sadness I must bear …

My father, Remulos, tried to stop Zaetar.  Zaetar was headstrong, and when he fell for an earthen elemental princess, my father knew that their union was cursed, but Zaetar refused to listen.

The centaur are the result of his mistake.  They were born misshapen and hateful; my uncle Zaetar was killed by his own kin …

The evil princess, Theradras, still guards his remains here in the crystal caverns of Maraudon.

> Tell me more about the history of Remulos and Zaetar

You ask of the Sons of Cenarius: Remulos and Zaetar.  My father, Remulos, was strong and beautiful, and my uncle, Zaetar, very cunning and slight of build.  While they were respected quite equally, Zaetar always felt as if he could never quite compare to the glory and attention he thought Remulos had.

After my sisters and I were born, Zaetar, blinded by jealousy, set out to outdo his brother … He was the creator of his own end.  The sadness it brings me has never lessened, even as time passes …

Selendras: Corruption of Earth and Seed

Deep in Maraudon lives an evil creature of chaos—Princess Theradras is an elemental force of earth related to the Old Gods. Ages ago, she and Zaetar, first son of Cenarius, began a relationship. The offspring of their time together became known to the people of Kalimdor as centaur. Ever-thankful creatures, the centaur killed Zaetar, and now hold Zaetar’s remains. My quest here is to find those powerful enough to slay Theradras so we may recover Zaetar’s remains before returning to Stonetalon.

Slay Princess Theradras and return to Selendra near Shadowprey Village in Desolace.
