Played by What Famous Person: Kevin Sorbo Theme Songs: (When Drunk) History: Tall, intimidating and cold to most, Selash is an enigma to many people in Azeroth. Most know him by his namesakes; the Sin'serrar (Blood Blade) hunter, which is both known and feared by people in both the Alliance and the Horde, as well as the Negotiator, earned from his many successful business dealings and brokerages when he worked under the Cartel. As such, he usually doesn't socialize much with anyone outside of his faithful pets Arwyn and Blaize, and what few friends he has within the Cartel Enforcers, The Raven Cross and the Horde. About the only things known about him are that he's a former Farstrider and loves to drink. He also had romantic involvements with Lelea Sunfury and Sin'lanna Arath'dorei which ended prematurely for reasons he refuses to discuss in public. The only known past about him is that he has a daughter by the name of Ryenn Gustblade, and that the two appear very much alike. This would hint that he at one point in time was married or had a procreative affair. However, when asked by a Goblin reporter for the TNG about a possible previous marriage, he gave the goblin a swift punch to the teeth and reduced his smile to a pile of shattered bicuspids. The goblin later went on to report that even while drunk, Selash is a more than formidable threat and refused to try and pursue the story further, fearing that the next time Selash would shatter far more than his mouth. After a dispute over a payment issue, Selash abandoned his position as negotiator of the Cartel and resumed his work as a freelance. After meeting with Anorah Nailo and Leoren Evershine, he joined the Raven Cross and remained with them for more than a year, still gladly accepting bounties brought to him. Shortly before leaving the Cartel, he met and befriended a fellow red haired sin'dorei by the name of Kira Skye Nirvanna and took sympathy upon her cause after she explained her plight to him. She was under his protection for more than a year before the two were finally invited into family's estate in what seemed like a possible welcoming of the idea of their marriage. But, in a cruel twist of fate, Selash would be kicked out of the family's home in a month's time, and he would lose all trace of Kira and never hear from her again. Her family making sure no trace of her whereabouts would slip out of the family's lips. After the defeat of Kil'jaeden at the Isle of Quel'danas, he wandered Azeroth and Outland, befriending Carrowyn Cealliagh at the start of the war with the Lich King with their relationship eventually leading to a romance. This romance, however, was met with turmoil at the discovery of a hidden arcane elemental sleeping in confinement in his body and gaining the freedom to wake up whenever his emotions turned volatile. Calling itself 'Baraxxus,' the elemental proved its sentience as one seeking destruction and vengeance over its confinement within its host, being bound mortally with Selash. With its discovery also came the emergence of an old enemy he had long thought dead; Jainus Proudguard. Driven by madness and determined to destroy the Sin'serrar, Jainus pursued Selash through Azeroth and Outland, targeting both the hunter and those close to him, trying to use Baraxxus against him and revealing that he had been placed within Selash by him. After a relentless hunt and with Carrowyn's help, Jainus was defeated in Hellfire Peninsula when Selash gained the ability to communicate with Baraxxus and reason with him, allowing their consciousnesses to merge and cooperate for a common goal. With his loyalties and views on life changing, he left the Raven Cross to the dismay of his peers and formed the Warsong Liberators after obtaining financial support and the blessing of the Warsong clan from Garrosh Hellscream. Initially, this decision was met with scorn from Leoren and the rest of the Raven Cross, but the relationship between them seems to have mended some, as the two forces have been seen interacting regularly with each other on the battlefield, and Leoren and Selash are once again on speaking terms. With the Lich King's fall and Jainus's defeat, Carrowyn and Selash settled down into marriage with the hopes of a renewed, peaceful Azeroth to raise a family in. She gave birth to their daughter at the end of May, naming her Kahlan, but fell ill months after childbirth with an illness that couldn't be identified or cured. Desperate to save her, Selash temporarily abandoned his duties as Commander of the Liberators to find a cure, but failed to do so as Carrowyn died shortly after the shattering of Azeroth by Deathwing. Grief-stricken but determined to press on for Kahlan's sake, Selash took charge against the Twilight's Hammer with the Warsong Liberators, only to have his command stripped from him and his group disbanded by Garrosh. Left with near nothing, he sought out his old friend Xaraphyne Na'we and took temporary refuge with her aboard the Skyseeker, returning to his old ways as a bounty hunter for hire. Since then, his life has seemingly turned around. Not appearing as grief-stricken and back to his old, wise-ass self. He has since become very wealthy from very high paying successful marks from various clients, and has seemingly moved on with his life. Like most soldiers in the Horde, Selash followed the campaign into Pandaria, taking odd jobs here and there while continuing to increase his wealth and reputation. While in Pandaria, he would meet and fall in love with a high-elf named Nalette Goldenlark. Hesitant at first, the two would start a blossoming romance and marry, with Selash eventually convincing her to rejoin her people in the Horde. But as Garrosh's conquest continued, his past as commander of the Liberators would haunt him, with Garrosh ordering his desruction, wanting to cover the existence of the Liberators and his alliance with an elf. Selash would survive the destruction of his home in Booty Bay and a handful of attempts on his life, dedicating his efforts to taking down the power-hungry Warchief and his allies. With the fall of Orgrimmar, Selash would take comfort in seeing Garrosh brought out in chains, but the stress of the whole ordeal would take its toll on his marriage to Nalette, forcing them to separate in divorce. Selash remained quiet for nearly a year once the dust had settled, choosing not to face the Iron Horde threat in Draenor and instead focusing on raising his daughter, Kahlan, and the home on the eastern coast of Quel'thalas he had managed to hang onto after the divorce. Many within the military ranks of both the Horde and Quel'thalas had pleaded with him to join the fight in this time, urging his skills were needed once again and that he belonged on the battlefield. He would resist for a long time before finally agreeing to enter the battlefield again, rejoining his comrades in Borrowed Time. While in Draenor, he encountered Nanori Windstalker again after years of not having heard from her. He knew she had changed the moment he saw her again, but the two had clicked together, just as they had before when they would frequently drink together in the Wyvern's Tail during the Cataclysm. And it wouldn't be long before Nanori took the initiative and admitted she had feelings for him, all along. Their courtship would be short, sweet, and eventful, but eventually would result in their marriage at the start of the summer months following their reunion. Now hunting together as a husband and wife duo, the two are seeking to reunite and prove their people as a race to be respected in the Horde under the banner of the Eversong Elite.
