Gavinrad the Dire was one of the first five paladins of the Knights of the Silver Hand.

Gavinrad was originally one of the knights who accompanied Anduin Lothar in the exodus from Azeroth during the First War. He was considered one of the most pious of Lothar's troops. Lothar recommended to Archbishop Alonsus Faol that Gavinrad join Uther, Turalyon, Tirion Fordring and Saidan Dathrohan as the first members of the Silver Hand, and the Archbishop agreed.ToD 86, 87

After Kel'Thuzad's death, and the strange happenings in the area, Uther thought it wise to ensure that the necromancer never walked again. To that end, he stationed Gavinrad and his Champions of Peace to guard the cemetery near Andorhal, where Kel'Thuzad was buried. The Scourge required the remains of the former necromancer and so Gavinrad ended up face to face with Arthas, the treacherous son of King Terenas, and the prince advised the paladin to step aside. When Gavinrad refused, Arthas unleashed his undead forces upon him, and he and his soldiers were slain.[1]


  • Arthas! Stop this madness before it is too late!
  • I can't believe that we ever called you brother! I knew it was a mistake to accept a spoiled prince into our order. You've made a mockery of the Silver Hand!
