- The Eredar, an insidious race of devilish sorcerers, used their warlock magics to invade and enslave a number of worlds. The indigenous races of those worlds were mutated by the Eredar's malevolent powers and turned into demons themselves. Though Sargeras's nearly limitless powers were more than enough to defeat the vile Eredar, he was greatly troubled by the creatures' corruption and all-consuming evil. Incapable of fathoming such depravity, the great Titan began to slip into a brooding depression. Despite his growing unease, Sargeras rid the universe of the warlocks by trapping them within a corner of the Twisting Nether.
Eredar were supreme sorcerers at the dawn of the universe. Some believe that they devoured their own world by using radical warlock magics. They consumed all life around them and set out to find more places of mystical power. The Eredar were Sargeras's first recruits in the Burning Legion, serving as tactical advisors and intelligence officers. Eredar warlocks are now counted as some of the greatest sorcerers in the universe. Pre-eminence in Eredar warlock society depends almost entirely upon magical power. Those who command the greatest selection of paramount spells - and thus in theory the greatest magical arsenal - rise to higher ranks. Those whose arcane abilities top out at such pitiful cantrips as wish and shapechange are grunts and lackeys, scarcely worthy of notice.
- In his fury, Sargeras shattered the prisons of the Eredar and the Nathrezim and set the loathsome demons free. These cunning creatures bowed before the dark Titan's vast rage and offered to serve him in whatever malicious ways they could. From the ranks of the powerful Eredar, Sargeras picked two champions to command his demonic army of destruction. Kil'jaeden the Deceiver was chosen to seek out the darkest races in the universe and recruit them into Sargeras's ranks. The second champion, Archimonde the Defiler, was chosen to lead Sargeras's vast armies into battle against any who might resist the Titan's will.
Though many Eredar were part of both invasions of Azeroth (the War of the Ancients and the Third War), and several more inhabit Outland, few individuals are known to mortals; only two, the greatest in magic and most feared by all, are commonly known: the Defiler and the Deceiver.

New Alliance Race?
The leaked pictures of Blizzard's displays for the Electronic Entertainement Expo and The Burning Crusade video appear to show Eredar, or a race that looks very similar to them, in a forested zone, as well as a close-up to one of the species' representatives. There are also two pictures featuring the art painted on the walls on the Burning Crusade's booth at the Expo, which show an elderly, bearded priest, as well as a paladin in Alliance PvP armor.
Movie From E3?
With the recent release of the character starting screen for this race, which is the same as Night Elves, the speculation that these arent true Eredar but rather some sort of hybrid mix between wisps and Eredar seems to be slightly more cemented. Some people also believe that the Eredar have joined the alliance because of Khadgar and Turalyon, due to the subsequent opening of the Dark Portal.
