Thornby and Garth were villagers who offered to help Arthas fight for Lordaeron when the prince passed by a village between the Silver Hand encampment and Strahnbrad. They became footmen and helped him fight against the Blackrock clan and Bloodhill Bandits.
Later, Thornby became a recruit of Kul Tiras and escaped the fall of Lordaeron, eventually becoming a Naval Royal Guard under Admiral Proudmoore. He was stationed outside of Vol'jin's new base camp. He may have been killed by Rexxar and his companions, but killing Thornby isn't required. His current fate is unknown.
- Thornby: "We'll fight for Lordaeron! Get your swords!"
