Кель'тас " Кель " Солнечный Скиталец был старшим членом Кирин Тора и Принцем Кель'Таласа, последним из династии Солнечного Скитальца. После падения Кель'Таласа, Кель'тас привел то, что осталось от его народа на службу Альянсу. Стремясь успокоить зависимость своего народа к волшебству он тайно вступил в союз с Иллиданом и Пылающим Легионом. Был объявлен предателем после того, как раскрылась его связь с Легионом. Кель'тас собирался призвать Кил'джедена через Солнечный колодец, но его планы были нарушены Армией Расколотого Солнца. Силы Армии одержали над ним победу на Террасе Магистров.
Даларан ПравитьЭта секция содержит эксклюзивную информацию для романов или коротких историй о Wacraft.Принц Кель'тас был могущественным магом и членом Совета Шести, верховного тайного совета Кирин Тора. Сразу после Второй войны он и другие члены верховного совета допрашивали Кадгара об орках и событиях в Каражане, приведших к гибели Медива.
Во время Третьей Войны , когда армии Плети входили в Кель-Талас, он вывел столько выживших, сколько сумел, и сжег множество зачарованных лесов, чтобы они не достались Плети . Приняв командование над остатками народа высших эльфов, (подробнее в Падении Кель'Таласа и Расколе)он нарек своих последователей эльфами крови, в знак памяти о павших собратьях. Также он сумел унести из гибнущего Кель-Таласа, череп своего отца, Анастериана, вместе со сломанным рунным клинком Фело'мелорном ,позднее им перекованным.
Охота на Иллидана ПравитьЭта секция содержит эксклюзивную информацию по Warcraft III.После падения Луносвета , Кель начал замечать пустоту в себе своих собратьях, неутолимый голод и странную дизгармонию. Однако разбираться с этим явлением не было времени, ведь Келя ждало множество других дел.
Кель и его солдаты находились в Лесу Серебряных Сосен, когда магическая нестабильность начала поднимать мертвых внутри и в окрестностях Даларана. Нежить напала на аванпосты, организованные эльфами, так что Кель решил собрать свои силы и поискать убежища на другой стороне реки Аревас.
Во время погрузки каравана с припасами, на отряд Келя натолкнулись двое странников, Майев Песнь Теней and Тиранда Шелест Ветра. Эти ночные эльфы уже 3 дня преследовали Иллидана Ярость Бури по морю. Кель предположил, что Иллидан был замешан в магическом всплеске в Даларане. Он рассказал эльфам свою историю, и Тиранда немедленно предложила ему свою помощь, предполагая, что он сумеет помочь им в поисках Иллидана. Майев же считала ее затею потерей времени, но все же согласилась. Под защитой ночных эльфов, и их союзников Горных Великанов, Кель быстро добрался до Деревни Погребальных Костров, и пополнил припасы из скрытых там тайников. Силы собирались, и Майев спросила Келя,где находятся остальные его собратья. Тогда он рассказал им о падении Кель'Таласа. Тиранда посочувствовала принцу, но предупредила его, что гнев и жажда мести не приведут его ни к чему хорошему.
В тот момент, когда они вьехали в Деревню Погребальных Костров, мертвецы притаились в засаде, и, в один момент, напали на караван. Кель, Мэв, Тиранда и их солдаты сразились с первыми отрядами нежити, однако, увидев собирающую силы вторую волну, они поняли, что караван не переживет еще одной атаки. Майев и Кель погнали караван через мост, а Тиранда встала на нем, и сдерживала нежить в одиночку. Воззвав к силе Элуны для защиты, она обрушила мост, и упала в несущуюся реку. Кель хотел помочь жрице, но Майев остановила его, сказав что Тиранда воин, и прекрасно понимала чем рискует. Также, она напомнила Келю, что у них была сделка, и потребовала его помщи в охоте на Иллидана.
Kael and Maiev tracked Illidan to Dalaran, where Kael's scouts found him performing a strange ritual with a mysterious gem. Malfurion came and told them that Illidan's spell was using the Eye of Sargeras to break Northrend apart. Immediately, they advanced upon his location, while Kael defended their bases from the voracious undead. When Illidan's spell was interrupted, Malfurion approached his brother and condemned him for his part in Tyrande's death. Kael, perplexed, suggested that it was premature to assume she was dead, and was vehemently silenced by Maiev.
Malfurion, realizing he had been duped, left Maiev entangled in vines while he and Illidan set off to save Tyrande. Maiev eventually freed herself and set off in pursuit, while Kael'thas was left in the ruins of Dalaran.
The Rise of the Blood Elves ПравитьЭта секция содержит эксклюзивную информацию по Warcraft III.
Kael found the Grand Marshal Garithos at Даларан, who dismissed his story of the night elves as a fanciful excuse. Garithos, Kael's commanding officer, harbored a poorly-hidden disdain for all non-human races. Garithos informed Kael that a strikeforce was encroaching on Dalaran, and that he was going to head them off at the mountains. Kael was quick to volunteer his assistance, but Garithos had other plans. He explained that a second force was believed to be approaching from the east, and that the arcane observatories needed repairs so that they could be used to spot them. Kael did as ordered, but when he came to Lordamere Lake, he found the shipyard ruined, and had no route across the water. Lady Vashj, a naga witch, soon arrived to offer her aid, citing their common ancestry. Vashj gave him boats, which Kael used to ferry his troops to the outlying observatories.
When Garithos returned from the front, he condemned Kael for consorting with the naga, despite the prince's assurances that they were not a threat to the Alliance. Garithos warned Kael that he would not tolerate treason before leaving Kael to keep things in line at Dalaran. An emissary sent by Garithos arrived the next day with further orders, reporting that the observatories had detected an undead force in the west. Kael was to defeat them, though the emissary also recalled his foot soldiers, cavalry, and support teams to the front lines. Kael was left with only his fellow elves to aid him, and the undead were quick to overtake the outposts across the river. Once again, Lady Vashj arrived with her naga, and though Kael was wary of accepting her offer, she insisted that without her help, he and his brethren would surely fall. Realizing that it would be impossible to survive without these reinforcements, Kael accepted. Together they defeated the undead.
After the battle, Kael told Vashj about how his people felt an emptiness ever since Quel'thalas was destroyed. Vashj explained to Kael that just like the naga, his people were addicted to magic. Without the Sunwell to give them a constant supply of magical energies, they would surely suffer a fatal withdrawal. Kael heard Garithos approaching, and bid Vashj to flee, but Garithos' men saw the naga escaping and arrested Kael and his people for treason. Garithos smugly told Kael that he now had all the proof he needed to deal with him and the other elves as he felt they deserved, and he had them all imprisoned in the Dungeons of Dalaran.
Vashj crept in through the sewers of the dungeons and freed Kael, then helped him free his brethren. Vashj promised him escape from his human oppressors through Kel'Thuzad's interdimensional portal, where her master, Illidan, was waiting on the other side. As they neared the exit, Kael met his former comrade, Jailor Kassan, who he was forced to slay in order to escape. Upon leaving the dungeons, the blood elves and naga fled through the portal Archimonde used to enter the world of Azeroth, and into a new world.
Kael found himself on the barren lands of the Hellfire Peninsula, and Vashj revealed that this Outland was once the orcish homeland of Draenor. They searched for Illidan for days, until Vashj caught a familiar scent on the winds. Maiev had captured Illidan and was escorting him back to her base in a prison wagon. Kael and Vashj's forces quickly rushed into the fray and battled Maiev's army in order to retrieve the unconscious Illidan and return him to their base, where they could undo the magical lock that kept him caged.
Illidan was pleased with the tenacity of all his servants, new and old alike, and told them of the situation in Outland. To flee from his vexed master, Kil'jaeden, Illidan had fled to Outland only to find it overrun by Magtheridon and his fel orcs, reinforced by demons arriving through Ner'zhul's dimensional gates. Kael had hoped Illidan might be able to cure the blood elves of their addiction to magic, and asked if he could help them. Illidan sadly told him that there was no cure for their condition, but promised Kael that if he joined him, he would provide the blood elves with enough magical energies to keep their hunger sated forever. Upon hearing this, Kael pledged his loyalty to Illidan. The blood elf Rommath was sent to spread Illidan's message of a new homeland to Quel'Thalas.
Kael and Vashj protected Illidan as he went about closing the interdimensional gateways. Kael discovered a camp of draenei being assaulted by orcs, and lent them his aid. He was greeted by Akama, the Elder Sage, who offered his allegiance to Illidan. Finally, the time came to assault Magtheridon's Black Temple. Illidan, Kael, Vashj, and Akama all led their forces against Magtheridon's fortress, infiltrating it and finally defeating Magtheridon in his own throne room.
As Illidan stood triumphant, Kil'jaeden descended from the fiery sky and rebuked Illidan for his insolence in trying to hide. The demon gave him one last chance to save himself - destroy the Frozen Throne, or face his eternal wrath.
The attack against the Lich King ПравитьЭта секция содержит эксклюзивную информацию по Warcraft III.
Kael and his new allies returned to Northrend, where they were immediately met by Anub'arak and his troublesome race. Though they kept them at bay, Illidan's forces slowly advanced on the Icecrown Glacier.
Arthas soon arrived with his detachment of undead. Kael, who had known the prince in the time before the war, warned him that Illidan's forces were vast, and that Arthas would never make it to Icecrown in time to save the Lich King.
When Arthas emerged from Azjol'Nerub, it was a race against time to reach the Frozen Throne before Illidan could. As Arthas and Illidan struggled to activate the obelisks surrounding the glacier, and open the gates into the Frozen Throne, Kael'thas and Lady Vashj did their best to interrupt Arthas in his struggle. Kael'thas and Arthas faced off against each other in combat several times, but Kael's forces were pushed back by the Scourge, and Arthas was able to activate all four obelisks. Arthas and Illidan met in single combat at the base of the glacier, just before the gates, now wide-open. After fierce combat, Arthas managed to get the best of Illidan, and Illidan's twitching body was tossed to the ground. Kael and Vashj were left leaderless on the snowy slopes of Icecrown as Arthas claimed his destiny. Together they took Illidan's unconscious body with them as they fled back to Outland.
World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade ПравитьЭта секция содержит эксклюзивную информацию для The Burning Crusade.
The remaining blood elves on Azeroth, now without support from the Alliance, are looking desperately to the Horde to help them reach Outland, where they can reunite with Kael'thas and achieve the golden destiny he promised them.
Kael'thas resides in the Eye of Tempest Keep, his citadel in Outland, floating among the ethereal islands of the Netherstorm. He leads various groups of blood elves in Outland, who are in the service of Illidan, Lord of Outland.
The skull of his father is still in his possession and is among the artifacts that the red and green dragonflights thought would be needed to restore the Sunwell. He also has in his possession one of the Vials of Eternity, as did Vashj.
Lately, Kael's loyalty to Illidan is beginning to crumble, and there are very few - even among his own people - who would wish to join with his new allies...
An Unholy Alliance Править
The Scryers discovered that Kael'thas had turned his back on Illidan and with the Burning Legion.
Kael'thas, aware of Illidan's insanity (brought on by his defeat at the hands of Arthas Menethil at Icecrown, nearly four years earlier), "switched paymasters accordingly" according to Magister Theledorn. Kael's decision to ally himself with the Burning Legion not only led him to betray Illidan, but also the Horde and his own people - the many blood elf pilgrims and adventurers traveling from Azeroth. At Manaforge Ara, agents of the Burning Legion bearing orders from Kael mingle with his Sunfury servitors.
The Scryers, recognizing that Kael's mad bid for power would lead the blood elven race to doom, continued to fight against Kael'thas and his Sunfury fanatics in the hope of saving their people.
The Cipher of Damnation Править
Through spying on the Earthen Ring and their activities in Shadowmoon Valley, Kael'thas gained the knowledge of the Cipher of Damnation. The Cipher of Damnation was used by Gul'dan to sunder the orcs' connection to the spirits of the land, and may have been the same as (or similar to) the spell uttered by Thaurissan when he summoned the fiery destroyer Ragnaros to Azeroth.
Khadgar and A'dal discovered the plans of Kael'thas, and requested help from any able-bodied adventurers to prevent Kael'thas from ever using the Cipher of Damnation. Through their efforts the cipher was recovered, depriving Kael'thas of a powerful weapon. These brave adventurers were granted the key to Tempest Keep, and sent to dispatch Kael'thas himself.
When Kael'thas is defeated he falls to the floor and can be looted. However, it turns out that he is not truly dead — he returns to shout out a warning to everyone in Shattrath City when the heroes turns in proof of his "demise":
- Silence descends upon Shattrath.
- A'dal's thoughts invade your mind.
- A'dal yells: Kael'thas Sunstrider has been defeated by <name> and (his/her) allies
- A'dal yells: The time to strike at the remaining blood elves of Tempest Keep is now. Take arms and let A'dal's song of battle empower you!
- Kael'thas Sunstrider yells: Your monkeys failed to finish the job, naaru! Beaten but alive... The same mistake was not made when we took command of your vessel.
- Kael'thas Sunstrider yells: All for what? Trinkets? You are too late. The preparations have already begun. Soon the master will make his return.
- Kael'thas Sunstrider yells: And there is nothing you or that fool, Illidan, can do to stop me! You have both served me in your own right - unwittingly.
- Kael'thas Sunstrider yells: Lay down your arms and succumb to the might of Kil'jaeden!
The Sun King Comes HomeПравить
Despite his defeat in Tempest Keep, Kael'thas survived the ordeal with the aid of Priestess Delrissa and continued to advance the plans of his dark masters. His appearance, however was changed: his skin was sickly pale, and a crystal was lodged in his chest, and one of his Verdant Spheres is gone, having been taken by those who defeated him previously. Having collected the necessary energies from his manaforges in Netherstorm, Kael'thas returned to Quel'Thalas to reinvigorate the Sunwell - not as the source of his people's magic, but rather as the mystic portal that will allow him to summon his new master, Kil'jaeden, much as the Well of Eternity was used to summon Sargeras ten millennia before.
Kael'thas made his return as the final boss of the 5-man Magisters' Terrace dungeon on the Isle of Quel'Danas. Before settling in, he and his new felblood elves assaulted the Blood Knight headquarters in Silvermoon and captured the naaru M'uru, the source of the Blood Knights' holy magic, and took the weakened naaru to the Sunwell Plateau. This led the Blood Knight Order and its leader, Lady Liadrin, to break off ties with the House of Sunstrider and swear allegiance to the Sha'tar and the Shattered Sun Offensive in an effort to take revenge on the treacherous Prince.
Inside the Terrace, the blue dragon Kalecgos (in his half-elf form) provides a quest, [70D] , that involves killing Kael'thas and taking his head in order to attune players to the heroic mode for Magisters' Terrace.
World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich KingПравить
It has been speculated, based on the similarities between their names, that Kael'thas could be Archmage Aethas Sunreaver in disguise, but of course this is unlikely, seeing as players kill him and turn in his head. That being said, Kael would not be the first to survive such an experience, given that Zalazane on the Echo Isles was allegedly beheaded by players multiple times, where in reality it was all a ruse.
All he feels now is hatred for the undead that ravaged his homeland, rage for the Alliance he feels failed his people, desperation over his people's collective addiction to magic, and grief for his ravaged kingdom. However, he is proficient in siphoning magical energies from demons to feed his addiction and has taught his brethren to do the same. Lately his hunger for magic has clouded his judgment. Kael'thas, though judged and seen as a madman, is merely a misguided leader, who will stop at nothing to save his people, even if that means the slaughter of his former followers and allies.
There has been speculation as to whether or not Kael'thas was ever officially crowned King of Quel'Thalas. The blood elves in Silvermoon still refer to him as "Prince Kael'thas", as do certain members of his own forces (Ambassador Solannas and Warden Mellichar, to name a few). However, the Burning Crusade brings the question to center stage, with two discoveries in the Draenei starting zones - one in Azuremyst Isle, and one in Bloodmyst Isle.
On Azuremyst Isle, a set of orders were sent to Engineer "Spark" Overgrind, a gnome working with the Venture Co. to steal the Exodar. In discussion with the goblin Geezle, Overgrind asked the Venture camp leader if he knew what Kael'thas did to people who failed him - implying that the gnome envoy was in fact a servitor of Kael'thas. After killing Overgrind, draenei players discover a set of orders given to Overgrind in regards to stealing the Exodar, a component of Tempest Keep, back from the draenei. It makes several mentions of a "Master" and it is signed "King Sunstrider". After Overgrind is confronted with the knowledge that he is a traitor to the Alliance, he cackles and confirms that he is a sleeper agent, asking the player "Does it frighten you to know that there are those that would serve the Legion with such devotion as to remain unwavering citizens of your pointless civilizations until called upon?"
Another indication that Kael'thas officially took the throne is from a Sunhawk missive, found by draenei players on the bodies of blood elf spies in Bloodmyst Isle — translated so that it can be read by the player — before bringing it to Velen in the Exodar. It also mentions a "Master" and is signed by Kael'thas himself. The missive details Kael'thas' plan to send reinforcements to the islands to retake the Exodar and bring it back to Tempest Keep. It begins with "Declaration from the Sun King" and reads in full:
- Sunhawks - my precious, loyal children - your king commends you. Your presence on Azeroth is of the utmost importance to both myself and the Master.
- Soon, the sun portal will be ready to transport reinforcements from Tempest Keep directly to Bloodmyst Isle.
- We will reclaim the Exodar. We will slay the blue skinned mongrels where they stand. Velen will pay for his crimes.
- -King Kael'thas Sunstrider
The "sun portal" in question is located near the crashed remnants of the Vector Coil in western Bloodmyst.
The possibility also exists that Kael'thas has been referring to himself as king without having ever been officially crowned. This is supported by the fact that the only references to Kael'thas as king are made by himself, while everyone else calls him prince.
The Prince and the Sorceress Править
A wizard of great skill and power, [Kael] became a high-ranking member of the Kirin Tor. His continuing magical studies brought him to the Violet Citadel, where he met Lady Jaina Proudmoore while she was still an apprentice. He was immediately drawn to the brilliant and lovely teenager, though the difference between their ages filled him with guilt and self-doubt. Eventually he courted her; however, he had little success in winning her regard. She remained dedicated to her craft above all else.
When rumors began to circulate that Jaina had given her heart to Prince Arthas Menethil, Kael'thas was deeply grieved. In time Jaina and Arthas parted ways, but it was all too obvious to Kael'thas that they still cherished feelings for one another. Kael'thas and Jaina would never have more than an awkward friendship.
The love triangle of Arthas, Kael'thas, and Jaina is fleshed out in the novel Arthas: Rise of the Lich King.
Warcraft III: The Frozen ThroneПравить
- For gag quotes see: Quotes of Kael'thas Sunstrider.
- The Scourge devoured our ancient homeland of Quel'Thalas. The once-proud bloodline of my people is nearly spent. The few of us that remain now call ourselves blood elves, in homage to our murdered people.
- This is preposterous! Am I to assault the undead with nothing but sticks and harsh language?
- Arthas: Are you still upset that I stole Jaina from you, Kael?
- Kael: You've taken everything I've ever cared for, Arthas. Vengeance is all I have left.

Black Temple Trailer/The Frozen ThroneПравить
- Originally appeared in The Frozen Throne, then repeated (in flashback) in the Black Temple trailer.
- Illidan Stormrage: Magtheridon lures scores of hapless demons through them daily.
Kael'thas Sunstrider: Then we must seal them permanently.
Kael'thas narrates the trailer for "Fury of the Sunwell", which is patch 2.4.0.
It was called the Sunwell...
A sacred fount of untold power, it saturated every fiber of our being. In the warmth of its glow, we thrived...until the shadow of death fell upon us.
Only after the Sunwell's destruction did we realize how dependent we'd become upon its magic, how much we needed to feed! In the wake of our devastation, I named our people "sin'dorei" - blood elves. My people turned to me for answers. I promised them a cure. Strangely, we found deliverance in the demon Illidan. Illidan offered new sources of arcane power, and so I joined him in Outland - pledging to return one day to lead our people to glory!
But Illidan's agenda was short-sighted. I grew impatient. In secret, I began harvesting what energies I could. I had a brief taste of TRUE power...before it was taken from me!
But...all is not lost. The Sunwell's essence endured, kept hidden by those who sought to protect it. Now, I have returned with the knowledge that sacrifices must be made before we can reclaim our birthright. I have forged a new alliance. Soon, the blessed rays of the Sunwell will shine once again, and usher into this world the one...who will deliver us all.
Don't look so smug! I know what you're thinking, but Tempest Keep was merely a set back. Did you honestly believe I would trust the future to some blind, half-night elf mongrel? Hahahaha... Oh no, no, no, he was merely an instrument, a stepping stone to a much larger plan! It has all led to this...and this time, you will not interfere!
A much more heated quote is heard upon his death:
My demise accomplishes nothing! The master will have you! You will drown in your own blood! The world shall burn! Aaaghh!
The phrase "merely a setback" has become a common utterance by players discussing potential future dungeons and raids, often with the joking implication that Kael'thas will somehow return.
"Welcome…to the future. A pity you are too late to stop it. No one can stop me now! Selama ashal'anore!"
- He was a wizard and fighter in the Warcraft RPG and was changed to a mage and warrior in the World of Warcraft RPG.
- His line "Tempest Keep was merely a setback!" has become famous amongst players, usually using a version of the line for a joke about him returning yet again. Often it is used when someone who was killed returns yet again in a later instance (such as Kel'Thuzad in Naxxramas or Anub'arak in Trial of the Crusader).
- Prince Valanar in Icecrown Citadel uses the exact same line only replacing "Tempest Keep" with "Naxxanar".
- Hogger in the Stockades also uses this sentence with "Elwynn Forest" instead in World of Warcraft: Cataclysm.
- Crusader Lord Valdelmar in Tyr's Hand also uses this line, stated as "The Scarlet Crusade is not over! Undeath is merely a setback!", during the quest Like Rats in World of Warcraft: Cataclysm.
