The Windrunner family is a prominent high elf and half-elf family. Their residence was a spire in a village both named after them in what is now known as the Ghostlands. Some members are in Honor Hold and in the Undercity. The family is now based in the Silver Enclave of Dalaran.
Many consider the Windrunner family as the most tragic family in Warcraft lore. Several members of the family were killed by the orcs during the Second War, including the sisters' parents, their youngest brother Lirath, along with numerous relatives of varying proximity. This prompted Alleria to join the Alliance Expedition in order to avenge them, which she later disappeared with. The rest of the family was one of the hardest hit by the Scourge invasion into Quel'Thalas. Sylvanas was killed by Arthas and raised as a banshee in his service, later becoming Banshee Queen of the Forsaken. The sisters' grandfather had to battle his own son, their uncle, after he was turned into an undead. A younger brother was torn to pieces by their older brother who was then himself burned with the rest of the Scourge by elven resistance fighters.

High Elf rulers?Edit

Due to the lack of leadership among the remaining High Elf nation, it is possible that the two "living" Windrunner sisters, Alleria and Vereesa, are the current co-rulers.
