Vyral the Vile is a level 61 human found at Twilight's Run in Silithus. To his followers Vyral the Vile is nightmare incarnate, an immortal servitor of the Old Gods. In truth, he is just a mortal man, albeit one of great power and influence. Vyral maintains his grand facade by destroying all records of his history.
With Cho'gall's return, it is possible that Vyral is now either second in command of the clan, or has been killed off in the lore.
Huum Wildmane wants Vyral killed.
According to a few fragmentary accounts, there was born to a wealthy family of the Eastern Kingdoms a child who was plagued by nightmares. Now this is not unusual for the time, but as the child grew his nightmares became worse. What's more, eventually his nightmares manifested in the real world.
His parents consulted priests of the Holy Light and they suspected that the nightmares were of extraplanar origin. Around the same time, the young man was seen with outlanders who dressed in purple. Before the priests could ascertain what afflicted the youth, he disappeared, as did the strangers in purple. It would seem the boy was inducted into the Twilight's Hammer, possibly of his own volition.
Based on these and other details, it is believed that the boy in question grew up to be Vyral the Vile. Regardless of his origins, it is known that the Vyral is not just the cult leader of the Twilight's Run sect in Silithus, but also the current leader of the entire cult. On one hand Vyral is intelligent and diplomatic, on the other he thoroughly insane and cruel beyond measure — all traits necessary to gain power in the Twilight's Hammer. Vyral dresses in the manner of a high arcanist; his face is ever concealed beneath a hood, save for his glowing red eyes.
