This article or section contains lore taken from Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos, Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne, the manuals, and official bonus maps.

Blackthorn was a ruthless Bandit Lord commanding a sizable force of thieves and assassins. He was established in the Tirisfal Glades and, unluckily, got involved in the conflict between the Dreadlord Varimathras and Sylvanas Windrunner.

Sylvanas, lacking sizeable forces, used one of her banshees to possess Blackthorn, who then commanded his bandits to serve Sylvanas. Thus Sylvanas bolstered her forces against her temporary enemy, Varimathras.[1]


This article or section includes speculation, observations or opinions possibly supported by lore or by Blizzard officials. It should not be taken as representing official lore.

The current fate of Blackthorn and that of his bandits is unknown as he does not appear in World of Warcraft.


His name was likely inspired by the Blizzard Entertainment game "Blackthorne".

(Before Blackthorn has been possessed)

Sylvanas: You may as well surrender now, cretin. You'll be my slave one way or another.

Blackthorn: Never!

(After Blackthorn has been possessed)

Blackthorn: Lady Sylvanas is master here. We fight for her, brothers!

Sylvanas: Hmm... my own band of assassins. Intriguing.
