"Oh, give it a rest, my fire hurts more, but it does the job faster!" - Anneth Bleaksong, arguing with a Mage
Anneth is a Warlock "loyal" to the Alliance. She offers what support she is able to the Alliance's cause, primarily by securing magical knowledge for its Warlocks, and occasionally providing its members with potions and salves. These services are not provided for free, of course, but Anneth is always more than willing to discuss remuneration!
She's lots of things. What you see is a human woman with long red hair, a spring in her step, and a youthful exuberance.
Anneth wears robes of red, with black and metallic accents. A fire-blackened staff set with a prismatic stone can be seen in her possession, as can a deep mauve-coloured spellbook.
One might find Anneth to be enjoyable to be around, or "wild". Possibly "unbalanced". It all depends on the inclinations of whoever is asked!
"I had it pretty easy for a refugee. I mean, every once in a while mother would wake up screaming and covered in a cold sweat, but other than that..." -Anneth, on her childhood
Anneth says that she was conceived in Grand Hamlet before the First War, the daughter of two merchants. While her father perished, her mother was able to flee to Lordaeron, where a growing Anneth caught the eye of an apothecary and mage. Later in her apprenticeship, she says that she was seduced over to the study of demonology - as much by the prospect of personal gain, as by a very attractive practicioner of said arts.
Burned with Desire
"We considered returning to Grand Hamlet, but it was reportedly a little too creepy for mother. We settled on Stormwind." -Anneth, on her and her mother's journey to Stormwind
Even more than "traditional" Arcane magic, Anneth was found to have a knack for Fel magic. There was one problem, though: Those who studied demonic magics tended to have very punctuated lifespans, if not because of popular opinions, then because one was trafficking with demons, who were seldom too reliable. Or happy at being bound to serve mortals. Disguising herself as a mage who preferred fiery magics, Anneth returned to a newly built Stormwind City with some of her peers to further her studies, and to help educate others in Demon Lore. She also found work recruiting others into her practice. Tactics included duels against magi and "lesser" warlocks, the forging of friendships and the use of flirtation, and aiding those in need and guiding them to The Slaughtered Lamb. Of course, she would always carry a pretty amount of gold on herself in case eyes needed to be paid to look the other way, and later she enlisted the help of bodyguards to intimidate potential "tattlers".
A Bridge Unburned
"Yes, that is correct. I'm just parading around as a mage who likes to play with fire." -Anneth, to an apprentice Warlock
In time it was learned by Anneth and her peers that attitudes towards warlocks, while still poor, had improved. Still, Anneth chose to masquerade as a mage, although after a while she chose to drop the act entirely - "I got sick of people asking me to conjure muffins for them!" Only when the wayward Aspect known as Deathwing ravaged Azeroth, did Anneth decide to adventure. "I figured I could scold apprentices for incorrect intonations until I needed therapy, or do something," she will say of her decision. Her role in things consisted primarily of assisting adventurers in trying to reclaim pieces of Lordaeron, with tragicomically little success at best. During this time, her studies shifted over to the even darker aspects of demonic magics, known as "Afflictions".
Straight to the Source
"Where better to learn my craft?" -Anneth, on her decision to travel to Draenor
Upon returning to Stormwind, it was not long before Anneth heard of activity at the Dark Portal. Alongside a group of fellow adventurers, she lent what aid she was able, and also stepped through the gateway. She arrived in an alternate, undamaged version of Draenor. Immediately, she began to harass any and all members of the Shadow Council, hungry for their secrets, and eager to bring them home.
"The guy I had my eyes on? He ended up running off with some floozy in the Engineer's Guild, can you believe that!" -Anneth Bleaksong on her lost love
"Oh, darling, I have morals! Mine are just a little less complex than yours, and let my hands roam below my belt under more circumstances than yours seem to." -Anneth Bleaksong exchanging barbs with a Paladin
