Thumbs down Characters to make disappear (other than Med'an)

List or talk about any characters you would like to just... go away. Vaporize from canon lore. When we get 10 names, I will make a poll where people can vote for multiple options.

Med'an is so universally hated that he probably won't be on the poll, unless we have trouble filling the 10 slots with other names. Let me start.

1) Arator the Redeemer

Created in Burning Crusade when - let's admit it - Blizzards quest writers were just screwing around with older lore for giggles without thinking really hard. His infancy and familiarity with characters like Danath puts a strain on the timeline, even after works like the BtDP novel and Chronicle. His name is a blatant LotR ripoff. Based on his quotes from wowpedia, he seems to have no characterization other than being the Turleria child.

Now his existence is reinforced, in Legion? Pfff. At this point, I want to learn that he's actually a half-elf orphan nobody, who dealt with his abandonment issues by imagining his parents were the most important heroes ever, and he even has some limited illusion spells to confuse people into going along with it (e.g. Danath, Turalyon spirit messages).

EDIT: Yes, if applicable, you might explain how you would go about removing them (or drastically reshaping them), as I did in my last sentence. Though that's generally not feasible.

Garrosh removed from TBC. I don't care if he's dead now. His push brought the huge orc content no one wanted, which shoved aside the actual stuff people asked for, and now they're surprised no one cares after more than half a decade of orc dung.

Then we can argue about whether Turalyon knew he was alive. Or how long Alleria took a maternity leave from orc-hunting to have late term pregnancy and give birth.

Maybe Alleria didn't know he was alive either, and he just plopped out one day when she was cutting out an orc's ears. Danath was traveling behind her, fortunately, and caught the new babe.

I never liked Wrathion, and since he hasn't managed to turn Anduin into his blushing bride...

He's the only half-elf paladin in Warcraft, likes red color despite being affiliated with the Alliance, and has a cool voice. The Light smites our foes!

Sylvanas. She successfully commits suicide after ICC. This throws the Forsaken into turmoil and demands they bring about both new characters AND leaders rather than the faction revolving entirely around her. This could also have explained their drastic personality change, whilst still retaining - with her death - some semblance of her having been a very, very dark anti-hero.

We don't know Alleria and Turalyon's life after the Breaking. They might have managed 's relatively peaceful life for some months.

Thank you for bringing him up. He's a blight upon the lore.

Course, I'm still holding onto that teeny tiny sliver of hope that Budd's insanity is due to what happened when you hand him that vial of Zul'jin's blood (a spectral force grabs him and yanks him into a burning building), such that Zul'jin can still avenge the injustice done to him and the Amani from beyond the grave.

There's not much left of Nedreck to kill, after Zul'jin's curse.

Johnny Awesome is a good choice.

Bazwix is also a good choice.

Post-Theramore Jaina Proudmoore. She's utterly unlikable, and makes Sylvanas look pleasant in terms of personality. Current Jaina is a bigger crybaby then old Jaina ever was (which was understandable, as old Jaina was weepy because she was having to fight the man she loved during Wrath). Now she's just Garrosh or Daelin in a dress.

Baine Bloodhoof. What does he even do? He didn't have the balls to challenge Garrosh after Theramore, or even when Garrosh and Magatha killed his father. "Nutless wonder" doesn't begin to describe him.

Varian and Anduin Wrynn. They were propped up as the "High Kings" of the Alliance, and Blizzard ruined Jaina's character to prop them up. Fuck them.

Post-Cataclysm Thrall. Oh, I'm sorry, "Go'el". He went from being a tough, but tolerant and fair ruler who most players (and lore characters) respected, to a blatant creator's pet that was shackled to an unlikable wife who constantly barks at him for not being "orc enough", while becoming the super awesome "World Shaman" and putting Garrosh fucking Hellscream in charge of the Horde due to Garrosh being Grom's baby. Gag.

Garrosh Hellscream. Hated him from the first moments of the Wrath Launch Event, for picking fights with Thrall for no reason and being an ungrateful warmongering racist asshole. He later went on to constantly being a belligerent douchebag to everyone, starting a world war, and making sure that Horde will always be the "evil" faction, while giving the Alliance eternal moral justification for anything they do. Thanks, Garrosh, you fuck.

Yeah, I can't look further than Arator (given Med'an is off-limited)

Absolutely horrendous character that still makes zero sense.

I say retcon the Bronze Dragons out. There isn't any turning back once you put in time travel. It needs a level of skill Blizzard doesn't possess to stick in time travel for a series that didn't start off with it.

I also say to throw out the Naaru and keep the Holy Light more in the background. More personal.
