Merander Renn (Picture taken during the Northrend Expedition)

Merander Renn (Born 577; King's Calendar) is a Stormwind-born independent general and the absolute leader of the Grey Order. A veteran of the Third War, having also participated in the Second War as a militiaman, Renn formed the Grey Order two years after the Third War, gaining support by promoting internationalism, equality, and the acceptance of any race in the ranks of the Grey Order with charismatic oratory and propaganda.

Renn ultimately wants to protect Azeroth from anything that may harm it. To achieve this, he pursues an active recruiting policy, with the recruits being anything from mercenaries to criminals to peasants to generals. Not only that, but he is willing to accept any race, regardless if it is part of the Alliance, Horde or even neutral, into the ranks of the Grey Order.

Within one year, the Grey Order had gotten enough recruits to actively participate in the Outland expedition. The expedition was a great success, and it greatly boosted the ranks of the organization, with a large influx of draenei and blood elves joining through the expedition, and beyond. As Illidan was killed, the Grey Order returned home. Until the expedition into Northrend began. The Grey Order once again participated in it, having sailed to Northrend. The Grey Order once got a large influx of recruits -- this time Death Knights from the newly freed Ebon Blade. Although initially viewed with distrust, they were welcome with open arms in the ranks of the Grey Order.

The Grey Order is famous for its' methods of handling problems. They will do anything (even if it is morally questionable) to protect Azeroth. They will not back down from burning a village to the ground if it means a better future for Azeroth. While it may be morally wrong, they think that they're doing a good thing.

Early HistoryEdit


Merander Renn was born inside the Lord Reg's Inn, in Goldshire, as the second child of Hebry and Ammi Renn. His parents were both farmers, and Renn went to a local school (where he had average grades, if not below average). The school was a religious one --- one specifically devoted towards teaching children about the Holy Light. Merander, however, refused to believe in the Holy Light, simply because he was rebellious like that. As a child, he was quite obsessed with playing "war", always battling his friends. One time, he found and read a history book about the Troll Wars. It was since then that he has become obsessed with all things related to the military. In 585, his brother, Derrick, had died of maeslas. That changed Merander.

While Merander got along with his mother, he did not with his authoritarian father, who would regularily beat him up, furious that the farm business wasn't going on well. While his father was a nationalist, and a big fan of humanity (a... human supremacist?), Renn, however, was not. He treated all races equally, not because he really wanted to, but because it was an act of rebellion against his father. Of course, this rebellion helped make Merander in what he is today. A person who believes all races are equal, even those who have hurt humans in any way. He respects all races equally. After the sudden death of his father in 590, Meranders' behaviour at school had gotten even worse. Not because he was sad, but because he was happy.
