Commander-in-Chief Anduin Llane Wrynn is the heir to the Alliance army. He is named after two venerated figures of Stormwind history: the legendary Anduin Lothar and his grandfather King Llane. In contrast to his more abrasive and decisive father King Varian, Anduin is contemplative, curious, and diplomatic, as well as a follower of the Church of the Holy Light. Similar in ways to his surrogate aunt Jaina Proudmoore prior to Theramore's Fall, Anduin seeks a peaceful way to end the conflict between many wars. In his endeavours, he has made personal friends of several powerful figures of the Alliance of New Azeroth, including Baine Bloodhoof, the August Celestials and Wrathion.
