WoW World of Warcraft Blood Elves
Formerly known as High Elves, the Blood Elves once resided in the Kingdom of Quel’Thalas. Sustained by the magical font, the Sunwell, High Elves were a race commanding extraordinary mystic powers. When, during the Third War, the Hoard Undead invaded Qual-Thalas, Arthas, leader of the undead corrupted the Sunwell in an arcane ritual to resurrect the lich Kel’thuzad.
The remaining high-elves, deprived of their source of energy, learned to extract magic from ambient sources. They became reliant on demonic energies, which corrupted and transformed their bodies. The alliance shunned the elves for their use of this ancient source of evil, and so the race decimated by the Horde joined their ranks to pursue the demons that initiated the conflict.
