Thornby and Garth were villagers who offered to help Arthas fight for Lordaeron when the prince passed by a village between the Silver Hand encampment and Strahnbrad. They became footmen and helped him fight against the Blackrock clan and Bloodhill Bandits.[1]

Later, Thornby became a recruit of Kul Tiras and escaped the fall of Lordaeron, eventually becoming a Naval Royal Guard under Admiral Proudmoore. He was stationed outside of Vol'jin's new base camp. He may have been killed by Rexxar and his companions, but killing Thornby isn't required.[2] His current fate is unknown.
