The ruler of the old High Kingdom in the golden years before before the Cataclysm and the Shrouding, the High King (or Queen) ruled the Kingdom from their magical capital of Ebon Lake. Legends tell that the High Kings were the mightiest mages in the world, able to reshape the magical energy of the universe according to their will.
No one knows what the last High King looked like, but legends tell of his armor forged from pure gold, and his enchanted horse made of steel.
The High King was the primary architect of the Overspell, a magical incantation which converted magical energy into a burst of incredible power. His use of the Overspell allowed him to annihilate the armies of the Horde during the ending days of the Cataclysm.
