The 7th Legion is a group of elite special ops regiment of Alliance veterans from past wars bent on fighting the threat of Naxxramas in Dragonblight.

The following is a quotation from High Commander Halford Wyrmbane, one of the leaders at Wintergarde Keep, regarding the nature of the 7th Legion:

Through the valleys and peaks of Mount Hyjal, across the shifting sands of Silithus, against the Legion's dread armies - we have fought. We are the nameless, faceless, sons and daughters of the Alliance. By the Light and by the might of the Alliance, the first strike belongs to us and the last strike is all that our enemies see.

We are 7th Legion.

This statement indicates that the 7th Legion may be one of the most elite fighting forces within the Alliance armies, having participated in many battles at least as far back as the Battle of Mount Hyjal, and perhaps even further. Their incarnation during the War of the Shifting Sands was in the form of the Might of Kalimdor. Former Might of Kalimdor members Duke August Foehammer, High Commander Lynore Windstryke, and Highlord Leoric von Zeldig survived to fight once again in Northrend.

In many ways they seem to be the Alliance counterpart of the Kor'kron Guard. Both groups consist of their faction's elite forces, and both are heavily involved in their faction's campaign in Northrend.

Inspiration

It is possible to relate the 7th Legion with the Nazi-Germany Field Marshal Rommel's Panzer Division, the 7th Division or "Ghost Division", during the Second World War. Rommel's division earned great fame for its ruthless tactics, quick movements and daring methods during the invasion of France in 1940. Not even the Nazi headquarters could keep track of them, therefore naming them the "Ghost Division".
