Thel'danis is a high elf with the appearance of a night elf. Some people might say he may be half-night elf half-high elf or half-night elf; this would explain his unique look and why he worships the Light. However, he could actually be Highborne as later RPG books imply that "highborne" consider themselves as high elves.(APG 20, 76)Most would speculate that the more likely case for this strange elf is that his model was not updated from pre-Burning Crusade, when all in game high elves and blood elves used modified night elf models because no other suitable model was available at the time.
