Duke Lionheart in Warcraft III.

Duke Lionheart was a paladin of the Silver Hand who followed Jaina Proudmoore and many human refugees to Kalimdor. During the Undead invasion he fled instead of fighting, taking to the road and living off the land.

Preferring books and knowledge to battle, he was intrigued by the Orcish race and their code of strength and honor and was felt ideal to remain in Hyjal to oversee a mixed base.

He was placed in charge of joint Alliance-Horde base near Mount Hyjal with the intention of hunting down the remaining demons after Mannoroth's death. Lionheart upheld orderly conduct, as the humans and the orcs often argued. Tyrande and Shandris Feathermoon watched them from the bushes. They killed him because Tyrande thought his presence defiled the forest. He didn't seem to mind about working with the orcs, if not to analyse their behaviour with humans.[1]

It is unknown whether Delora Lionheart is related to him, despite the surname. It may be possible that they traveled there as a family.


  • Duke Lionheart: Put your backs into it! Jaina and the orc warchief expect this base to be built swiftly!
  • Footman: Bah! We shouldn't even be here. Or siding with the orcs.
  • Grunt: We're here to hunt the remaining demons, human. You're lucky our goals are the same.
  • Duke Lionheart: All right, you men. Mind your business. Back to work.
