The night elves, or kaldorei, meaning "Children of the Stars" in their native tongue of Darnassian, have a long and fascinating history.

Maiev Shadowsong, the Hand of Justice The Sisters of Elune:
For millennia, the priestesses of Elune have been both spiritual leaders and powerful fighters for their society. When the night elves ride into battle, the Sisters of Elune fight side by side with the soldiers, singing to Elune and calling upon her power. Often, the Goddess responds by visiting her wrath upon the night elves' enemies.
The Sisterhood of Elune is the highest echelon of the priesthood that serves the Goddess of the Moon, Elune, and the oldest Night Elf religious and magical order. The Sisters are the major active night elf political faction, and fulfil the roles of magistrates, officials, and the like for the night elf government.

The Sentinels:
After the night elves and their allies had achieved victory in the War of the Ancients, High Priestess Tyrande Whisperwind decreed sweeping changes throughout night elf society. As part of these changes, Tyrande disbanded the old army, most of which had no desire for further battle, and established the Sentinels. The sentinels (aka Sentinel Army) are an elite guard belonging to the night elves. Given the threat of invasion that constantly looms, few roles are as critical to the defence of the land as the sentinel.

Notable kaldorei:
Tyrande Whisperwind:
Tyrande is the High Priestess of Elune. She has served as the leader of the night elf Sentinels for nearly ten thousand years, but the time of the long vigil has left her with little mercy for those she regards as her foe. An exceptional and fearless warrior, she stands as one of the greatest heroes in history. Following the catastrophic invasion of the Burning Legion, Tyrande ruled over her people alongside her mate, the Arch-Druid Malfurion Stormrage, until he disappeared into the mystic Emerald Dream. With Malfurion lost in the Dream, Tyrande has again become the sole ruler of her prideful people. Troubled by Malfurion's disappearance, she nevertheless strives to keep the night elves from reliving the mistakes of the past.

Malfurion Stormrage:
The first druid ever, following Cenarius, and arguably one of the most powerful beings in history, Malfurion Stormrage stands as both prophet and saviour to his people. Under the leadership of Tyrande and Malfurion, the night elves vanquished the Burning Legion not once, but twice. To sustain consciousnesses in the Emerald Dream, Malfurion periodically hibernates within the Dream. Recently something went wrong with Malfurion's dream state. Now he is trapped somewhere within the dream, beyond even the reach of the green dragons whose realm it is.

Ilidan Stormrage:
Illidan Stormrage is the twin brother of Malfurion Stormrage and was (perhaps still is) in love with Tyrande Whisperwind. Once an unusually gifted sorcerer, the extent of his powers today are difficult to classify, due to his powers increasing in large bursts as a demon hunter, sorcerer, and having absorbed the powers of the Skull of Gul'dan. Now also known as The Betrayer, Illidan is currently the self-proclaimed Lord of Outland.

Fandral Staghelm:
One of Malfurion's top lieutenants, Fandral is a clever druid who has trained many of the newest generation of druids of the wild. His hot temperament has sometimes clashed with the more restrained Malfurion. Fandral believes that the future of the night elves demands more expansionism and military planning. His radical beliefs and aggressive demeanour often lead him to quarrel openly with the High Priestess, Tyrande. Regardless, to this date, Fandral has proven to be an effective replacement for the missing Malfurion.

Maiev Shadowsong:
Maiev was originally a priestess of Elune during the War of the Ancients. She was stationed at a temple in north-western Kalimdor just before the War of the Ancients. Like the rest of the sisterhood, Maiev took up arms against the Burning Legion at the start of the invasion, joining the resistance under Kur'talos Ravencrest. When Tyrande was declared the new High Priestess, a disgruntled Maiev raised an opposition, though she knew better than to deny Tyrande's power. Following her disappearance and the death of Marinda, Maiev was elected High Priestess by default. In the aftermath of the War of the Ancients, Maiev was appointed the jailer of Illidan Stormrage and took on the mantle of leader of the Watchers. After Illidan's escape at the hands of Tyrande, Maiev has been hunting him down until the extent where she has become vengeance itself.

Sentinel General Shandris FeatherMoon:
Shandris was born in the village of Ara-Hinam. She was only 16 years old when the Burning Legion came, and Ara-Hinam was destroyed. Shortly thereafter Shandris came to meet Tyrande Whisperwind, priestess of Elune. Tyrande found a great liking in the young girl, and couldn't bare simply letting her remain among the survivors alone, and so took her with her. Shandris is one of the most loyal warriors in Tyrande Whisperwind's employ. As a fearless archer and huntress, Shandris stayed by Tyrande's side through the millennia of solitude she was kept away from her love, Malfurion. Shandris came to lead a cadre of Sentinels known as the Shadowleaves. She is the most talented markswoman in Azeroth, having honed her skills for ten thousand years. Shandris is now the leader of the Sentinel Army, and answer only to Tyrande.

Queen Azshara:
Azshara was the queen of the kaldorei thousands of years before the First War. She was widely considered the most beautiful of night elves and swiftly became the most beloved monarch in night elf history; such was the people's love that the capital was renamed Zin-Azshari (meaning "Glory of Azshara"). Azshara was adored by all night elves but she reserved her love only for her Highborne, the corrupt night elf noble elite, who were hated among the jealous masses, for amongst the Highborne were some of the most powerful practitioners of magic. Her reign led to the War of the Ancients and the Sundering, after which night elf society underwent sweeping change.

Other notables:
Elune:
Elune, Goddess of the Moon, has been revered by the night elves and other races since ancient times. However, the Mother Moon is not a goddess who advocates peace at all costs. Indeed, one of Elune's aspects since ancient times has been the Night Warrior, who is said to take the valiant dead from the battlefield and set them riding across the evening sky as stars. In the world's infancy, She protected all living things and allowed them the chance to grow and thrive. Whenever She found violence, She would cast Her calming influence across the land so that peace and healing might be given another chance to thrive. Thus it was for many centuries, until arcane energy began to leak into the world through the Well of Eternity. Despite Her attempts to guide them away, She watched in horror as Her spiritual children among the kaldorei were drawn to the Well and seduced by its power.

Cenarius:
As the son of Elune, Goddess of the Moon, and the demigod Malorne, Cenarius inherited a deep connection to the world of Azeroth and its creatures. Malorne, who had relations with both Elune and Ysera, knew that he could not properly care for his son, but Ysera's love was so great for Malorne that she took Cenarius as her own. Guiding him into the Dream, she taught him much of its secrets and became a foster mother of sorts to him. Later, Cenarius befriended the night elves, teaching a select few in the druidic arts. Shortly before the War of the Ancients, he began instructing the brothers Illidan and Malfurion Stormrage. Malfurion Stormrage became the first mortal druid on Azeroth. Following the arrival of the orcs on Kalimdor, Grom Hellscream was sent to harvest lumber in Ashenvale. This caught the attention of the Sentinels, who immediately attacked the orcs. After Grom held them off, Cenarius himself was brought to the forefront. After drinking the blood of the Pit Lord Mannoroth, Grom Hellscream met Cenarius in battle, and killed the demigod.
