Illidan Stormrage’s return in the Legion was a major thing. As the leader of the Illidari, he and his followers had a major role in this expansion.
Even Xe’ra claimed that Illidan is the child of Light and Shadow and he is destined to end the age of demons.
Illidan is voiced by Liam’O Brien. He is a voice actor, writer and voice director based in Los Angeles. Some of his notable work includes voice acting for Gaara in Naruto and Ukitake in Bleach. He also appears as a voice actor in Final Fantasy XIII-2, Darksiders, League of Legends and many more.
The jailor of Illidan Stormrage and his Illidari was a prominent figure in this expansion. When the Legion attacked the Vault of the Vardens, Maiev freed all of the Demon Hunters and together fought off the demons of the Legion.
Unfortunately they failed to stop the Legion’s main purpose of this act, which was to recover Illidan’s body from the Vault.
This was a major turnaround for someone who dedicated their life to hunting and capturing Illidan and his demon hunters.
The voice behind the legendary watcher is Debi Mae West. She is very famous voice actor and some of her work in video games include Dungeons & Dragons, Everquest, Saints Row, The Spiderman, Star Wars, Tom Clancy, Scarface and many more.
Velen has been the leader of the Draenei people since their first flight from Argus, 25,000 years before the first orc invasion of Azeroth.
He is known as the Prophet amongst his people, he was granted with the gift of the Sight and is aided by the Light.
He was once best friend with the powerful demon lord Kil’jaeden and rejected the powers offered by Sargeras.
Prophet Velen is voiced by David Shaughnessy. His voice was part of few World of Warcraft expansions, Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, GTA V, Heroes of the Storm, Fallout 4, Hearthstone and many more.
Lord Xavius once terrorized Azeroth with an affliction that almost obliterated the walls between reality and dream. He is called The Nightmare Lord and was a High Counselor for Queen Azshara 10,000 years ago.
The voice behind Xavius is the Canadian voice actor, Michael Donovan. His voice acting is included in some of the games as Cars 2, D&D Online, Guild Wars 2, Resident Evil 6 and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
