Prince Renathal: Countless ages ago, just after the first venthyr were sired, Denathrius unveiled another creation. The nathrezim.
Prince Renathal: Forged to be the ultimate infiltrators, they bore the influence of Death into the realms of our rivals... as well as the worlds of the living.
Prince Renathal: Despite their subtlety, one of these incursions was discovered.
Prince Renathal: In response, the full wrath of the Light fell upon Revendreth, setting ablaze the ward once held by the nathrezim.
Prince Renathal: The armies of Maldraxxus did not rise up to defend us, so the Stonewright carved her Stone Legion to strike back against the Light.
Prince Renathal: Once the naaru were routed, the Stonewright turned her anger upon the nathrezim, blaming them for the loss of so many of her children.
Prince Renathal: The conflict was ended by Denathrius, who said he would exile them to a world beyond the Shadowlands.
Prince Renathal: Denathrius never told me what became of the nathrezim. Only later did I learn that mortal souls had come to know them by another name: the dreadlords.
Prince Renathal: My dear Stonewright, Harvester of Wrath, wielder of Elu--
The Stonewright: Chelra the Bladewall. How have you been, my child?
Chelra the Bladewall: Mother of Stone. You honor me with your concern. I am well.
The Stonewright: Impressive, considering Denathrius had you beheaded after casting Renathal into the Maw.
The Stonewright: Reveal yourself, infiltrator.
Nal'ragas: Always so clever. Only... I am not the infiltrator. I am the distraction.
Nal'ragas: Now! Seize the medallion! Remove the interlopers!
Thank you for playing, valiant champion.
As Mal'ganis is defeated, he reveals his plan.
This was all a distraction! While you have been fighting him, the other nathrezim went after the true target: the only master they have ever served.
Prince Renathal: Mal'Ganis, we need not be enemies. Join us to save Revendreth and end your exile.
Mal'Ganis: We were never in exile, you gullible fool. It was all part of the Master's plan!
Mal'Ganis: Keep your trinket and your realm. They are dust in the face of our Sire's true ambition.
Mal'Ganis: If only you had just obeyed...
