Demigods, also spelled demi-gods, are Eternal creatures or beings that has attained the status of supposed godhood by worshippers of a particular inclination. While some demigods are or were physical beings of immense power, such as Cenarius, others seem to be abstract concepts that may or may not have roots in an actual person or creature, such as the Earthmother.

The demigod Ancients include:

Former mortals Edit

There are many demigods, but only three mortals have become Ancients due to the immense power they wield:

  • Combat 17px The Lich King - Originally the orc shaman Ner'zhul, he was transformed by Kil'jaeden into the powerful Lich King and eventually merged with Prince Arthas Menethil. He is worshiped as a god by the Cult of the Damned and the Scourge. He is the supreme overlord of the Scourge and once held the icy lands of Northrend in his iron grip, his legions spread across the globe. When Arthas was slain by a band of heroes led by Tirion Fordring, it was revealed that there must always be a Lich King to control the Scourge; thus Bolvar Fordragon donned the cursed helm and named himself jailer of the damned.[1]
  • Combat 17px Queen Azshara - Formerly the queen of the night elves, Azshara is the progenitor of the naga, night elves who were transformed into serpentine, aquatic creatures when they were banished to the bottom of the Great Sea after the Sundering. Azshara lives still as the Empress of Nazjatar, the capital of the naga beneath the Eye of the Maelstrom.
  • Combat 17px Xavius - Lord Xavius was Queen Azshara's chief advisor who led the attempt to summon Sargeras into Azeroth. After his death at the hands of Malfurion Stormrage, Xavius was sent back to Azeroth by the dark titan as the first of the satyr. Malfurion made the satyr's body into the building block for a tree, which was then sent to the bottom of the Great Sea following the Sundering. Xavius is said to have lived on and created armies of satyr under Elune's nose.

The Dragon Aspects Edit

The aspects are demigod-like,[2] with powers rivalling that of a demigod.
