Kinndy Sparkshine was a gnome and one of Jaina Proudmoore's apprentices introduced in the novel, Jaina Proudmoore: Tides of War by Christie Golden. She dies during the Battle of Theramore when the Mana Bomb, thrown from a goblin aircraft on command of Garrosh Hellscream, hits Theramore, killing every living creature in the city.
Though many of the dead are returned to a "normal" state after the effects of the Mana Bomb dissipate, Kinndy's body is unable to be recovered. Upon her first viewing of the destroyed city, Jaina touched her body, and it dissolved into magical ash.
After the destruction, Jaina travels to Dalaran to offer her condolences to her parents. There, she learns that Windle has been permitted to use his magic when lighting the city's lanterns to make the flames briefly appear as his daughter.
