Biography

She is the most powerful Human sorceress alive, a protégé of Archmage Antonidas, and former lover of Arthas, the one-time Prince of Lordaeron and now enemy of all who live. When Arthas began to fall from grace in his efforts against the Undead Scourge, Jaina tried to talk him back into sanity, but to no avail. She did not follow Arthas into Northrend, but instead rounded up what remained of the Alliance of Lordaeron and travelled to the West, to the continent of Kalimdor, as the Prophet Medivh had instructed.

After the war, Jaina rallied the remaining humans, elves, and dwarves and retreated to Theramore Isle, in the Dustwallow Marsh off the coast of southeastern Kalimdor. There she founded an Alliance stronghold, the only bastion of Human power on the western continent. ...

Peace did not last long, as the Horde also settled in Kalimdor, where they lived under an uneasy peace. However, the appearance of Admiral Proudmoore's Kul Tiras Marines and their attacks on the newly founded settlements of Durotar forced Warchief Thrall into action. With the help of Rexxar the Beastmaster, the Orcs, Tauren, Trolls and Ogres pushed the Kul Tiras forces all the way back to the Theramore Isles. But the Admiral had never forgiven the Orcs for the devastation of the past wars, and refused to believe that they had changed. With a heavy heart, Jaina realized that the only way to stop her father was for the Horde to assault Theramore Island itself. Male and Female Orcs as seen in the World of Warcraft. ...

The Horde prevailed and, before Jaina could intervene, Admiral Proudmoore was slain in the throne room of the island's citadel. Knowing the threat had been removed, the Orcs and their allies left Jaina and the island in peace.


Jaina in 'Cycle of Hatred'

Theramore and Durotar remained at relative peace for three years, though the two former archenemies were still wary of each other. Eventually, a series of minor shipping incidents led to extreme tension between the two powers, enough so that the Goblins, who controlled the region's only neutral port, complained.


Despite the tension, Thrall requested Jaina's aid in relocating a herd of Thunder Lizards displaced by a mysterious logging operation at Thunder Ridge. Jaina intended to relocate the Lizards to a largely unpopulated region on the far side of Mulgore, but was astonished to discover that the area was magically warded to protect its single inhabitant: Aegwynn. Aegwynn is a fictional character in the Warcraft universe. ...


The former Guardian brushed off Jaina's admiration, but filled in the gaps of what had been happening amidst the tensions between Theramore and Durotar: a minor demon, Zmodlor had revived the Burning Blade and was playing the two powers against each other.


Jaina and Aegwynn hastily returned to Theramore, where they discovered that Jaina's own chamberlain had been corrupted by the Burning Blade. After dealing with the turncoat, they took on Zmodlor himself. Unfortunately, the demon was backed by a small cabal of Warlocks (either Eredar or Satyr, the text is unclear). After they dealt with the traitors in Jaina's ranks, and Thrall's in his, both leaders proposed a more official treaty.


Personality

Jaina prefers actions over words, leading her to develop a great admiration for Thrall's success in founding Durotar and a deep resentment of the unending, fruitless debate among the members of the High Council of Lordaeron (when it was still in existence). At least until the recent conflict, she preferred study to combat and did not consider herself a warrior. Jaina holds all races on equal terms, treating all as intelligent, reasonable beings. In the fictional Warcraft Universe, Durotar is a nation founded by the Horde, to serve as a new homeland for the orcs, and is named after Thralls father Durotan. ... The Lordaeron insignia. ...


World of Warcraft

In World of Warcraft, Jaina resides at the top of her tower in Theramore Isle. Alliance players can be greeted by her in person after completing the quest "The Missing Diplomat" and Horde players can fight against her. She is not considered one of the main Racial Leaders, and as such will not give the same honour awards that the likes of Thrall and Sylvanas would. Nonetheless, as the most powerful sorceress alive, she is an incredibly tough opponent and only a skilled level 70 raid party would ever hold a chance of taking Jaina down.


Family

Jaina is the youngest daughter of Admiral Daelin Proudmoore. She is the half-sister of the half-elf, Finnall Goldensword. She has a late older brother, and another relative (possibly a brother) named Tandred Proudmoore, who is the current ruler of Kul'Tiras. In Norse mythology, a half-elf is the offspring of an elf and a human. ... In the Warcraft universe, Lord Admiral Daelin Proudmoore also had a second daughter outside of his marriage when he had an affair with an elven sorceress named Kilnar Goldensword. ...

The Relationship between Jaina and Thrall

After Jaina's and Thrall's forces were forced to work together after the meeting with Medivh, the two leaders soon became good friends. As to why they became so close nobody knows. Although according to Thrall, Jaina reminds him of Taretha Foxton, a human girl who befriended Thrall during his childhood. Their relationship is strong nonetheless, having endured Jaina losing her father and Thrall a lot of his warriors. They still consider each other as allies. A few fans speculate that Thrall and Jaina must have had (or have or will have) a romantic relationship. The only clue is the translation of a Gnomeregan binary punchcard, which states: This is alphabetical list with the major and minor characters in the Warcraft universe — a fictional universe in which a series of games and books are set. ...
