Maxwell Tyrosus in WoW

Lord Maxwell Tyrosus is the leader of the Argent Dawn in the Plaguelands and one of the highest ranking officers in the organization as a whole. He resides in Light's Hope Chapel, and rarely sees visitors from outside his organization. Lately, he has been planning an offensive on Baron Rivendare of Stratholme. It's unknown where he'll get the manpower for the operation, though. He is older than most Argent Dawn knights, at about 40 years, but is still in peak physical condition.[1]

Lord Maxwell has been a member of the Argent Dawn for some time. He's only a little over 40 years old, so he'd barely be an adult by dwarven standards. As a human, he's starting to show his age, though he’s still a valiant fighter.[2]

Lord Maxwell Tyrosus dealt a critical blow to Kirkessen the Zealous, a powerful lich who reported directly to the Lich King himself, during the Siege of the Sanguine, and the lich is now no longer able to assume a corporeal form.[3]
