Alleria Windrunner is the eldest of the Windrunner sisters, all of whom have served Quel'Thalas and the Alliance with distinction: Sylvanas was the Ranger-General of Silvermoon, and Vereesa was a Special Ambassador.
Alleria served as a Ranger for the Alliance during the Second War, as the Horde burned the borderlands of Quel'thalas. Alleria saw the evil of the Horde first hand, and was a staunch supporter of the Alliance that opposed them. At some point, Alleria heard her sisters had died (which of course, was not true), sending her into a vengeful rage.
Alleria’s thirst for vengeance caused her to create a cadre of Rangers who were solely dedicated to hunting down any free Orc left in Azeroth and eradicating them. Alleria journeyed with the Alliance Expedition into the Orc world of Draenor, there she scouted for the Alliance forces and helped the expedition complete its mission.
Alleria fought against the forces of Ner'zhul and his Shadow Horde. She fought Deathwing and later aided in defending Khadgar when he finally closed the last Dark Portal to Azeroth, after which Draenor itself was sundered in a fiery cataclysm, sacrificing her way home. Alleria, along with her surviving allies, leapt into the Twisting Nether and has not been seen since.S&L 57,58

- "If you're Alliance you'll go to this base called Honor Hold, well Danath is actually there. And you'll run into him and eventually as the expansion plays out from zone to zone you'll run into all the heroes from the Valley of Heroes in Stormwind." (E3 2006)
Alleria can not be found inside the stronghold, and, as Danath Trollbane tells her half-elven son Arator the Redeemer, her current status is unknown. However, with new raids and dungeons coming out such as Sunwell Plateau Raid, she may appear in the near or far future.
Horde players visiting Windrunner Spire in the Ghostlands can locate a necklace given by Alleria to her sister Sylvanas. The Dark Lady rages in fury at the messenger, but succumbs to her memories (see Lament of the Highborne).
