I know that we Forsaken appear monstrous to your eyes, but I assure you we mean your people no harm. We are here because of a common enemy: Dar'Khan the traitor! He has returned and now commands the Scourge that are invading this land from his steadfast, Deatholme, to the south.
Our leader, Lady Sylvanas Windrunner, originally hails from these lands, and in fact used to be an elf. She has a history with Dar'Khan and wants him dead as much as your people do.
