- Full Name: Dath'Remar Sunstrider
Dath'Remar was the leader of the Highborne who survived the War of the Ancients. He has originally been part of the Highborne elves that stayed with Queen Azshara during the War. He was even offered to be turned into a Satyr by Xavius but declined, becomines increasingly uneasy over the Highborne's affiliation with the Burning Legion. When Tyrande Whisterwind was captured by the Satyr's, Dath'Remar took her into his confidence, which eventually lead to him freeing her, and taking a large number of Highborne and escaping from the palace.
After the war, when the surviving Night Elves chose to take up Druidism and forsake all forms of Arcane Magic, he called the Druids cowards for refusing to use the power of magic. As the Quel'dorei felt the pangs of their addiction to magic they grew more desperate, in an attempt to convince the Druids to change their minds the Highborne led by Dath'Remar unleashed a terrible magical storm across Ashenvale Forest, for this action the High-borne were exiled.
The Quel'dorei boarded by specially crafted ships sailed eastwards braving the Maelstrom they landed in the Tirisfal Glades, Dath'Remar took the name Sunstrider, meaning 'he who walks in the day' to accompany the cultural and physical changes the Highborne were under taking. After being forced to abandon Tirisfal Dath'Remar led his High Elves to a land in northern Lordaeron there he and his brethren created the Sunwell, the magical foundation of their new kingdom of Quel'thalas. Dath'Remar was crowned the first High King of Quel'Thalas and though he did not rule the king retained a modicum of political power. Dath'Remar's signature sword was Flamestrike and became an heirloom of the Sunstrider Dynasty and has been wielded by his descendents to the last of the Sunstriders, Prince Kael'thas.
Note. According to the War of the Ancients Trilogy, Dath'Remar already had the name Sunstrider.
