Sargeras
sargeras.jpg

Once the greatest warrior in the entire Pantheon of Titans, Sargeras is now completely insane and devoted to the pursuit of absolute destruction. Initially, the Titans elected him to be their primary defense against the demon races, and he valiantly fought against the dark beings for eons. However, after witnessing the boundless depths of the demons’ evil and hate, Sargeras began to despair of his task and gradually slipped into a brooding depression. He was unable to comprehend the nature of such pure evil, and came to blame the Titans for what he considered to be their flawed pursuit of a false order.

Sargeras concluded that chaos and depravity were the only true forces in the universe and angrily exiled himself from the ranks of the Titans forever. Sargeras roamed the Twisting Nether for thousands of years, freeing the many demon races that he had previously hunted down and imprisoned. He bound the newly released demons to his will and used them to construct an army of massive proportions — one that eventually became known as the Burning Legion. Sargeras chose two champions from the ranks of his followers — Kil’jaeden the Deceiver and Archimonde the Defiler.
Convinced that the Titans’ ordering of the universe was unnatural and ultimately responsible for the corrupted nature of the demons, Sargeras decided to undo the work of the Titans throughout the universe. The only way that he could correct their mistakes was to destroy all of the worlds that the Titans had shaped and brought order to so long ago. His forces swept from world to world, destroying everything in their path. They eventually became aware of the young world of Azeroth due to the elves’ reckless use of arcane magic, and Sargeras began to hunger for the limitless energies of the Well of Eternity.

Sargeras’s first invasion of Azeroth failed, and his armies were defeated by the demi-god Cenarius and the dragon Aspects left by the titans. The second time that Sargeras entered Azeroth was in the form of an avatar. Aegwyn, the Guardian of Tirisfal at the time, detected Sargeras’s presence, hunted his avatar down and defeated it in combat. However, as it died, Sargeras spirit reached inside Aegwyn’s body and hid, lying dormant for many years. Unaware of the tainted presence inside her body, Aegwyn buried Sargeras’s physical body in a tomb and cast it deep into the ocean.
Eventually Sargeras spirit awoke and possessed the mind of Aegwyn’s unborn son, Medivh. When Medivh grew old enough to inherit the mantle of Guardian of Tirisfal from Aegwyn, Sargeras spirit manipulated him to use his powers to contact Gul’dan and open a portal between Draenor and Azeroth. Sargeras desired vengeance against the human kingdoms, and expected the orcs to travel through the portal and destroy the humans. Although the orcs did enter the portal and eventually caused a great amount of damage to the human kingdoms, Sargeras ultimately failed in his plans because a band of Medivh’s friends recognized signs of possession in the sorcerer and rushed to kill him. As Medivh died, the portion of Sargeras’s spirit that had possessed him was released and swiftly dispersed.

Despite being the last thing ever heard from Sargeras- and Kil'Jaeden having claimed himself Sargeras replacement, it has been stated by developers and Chris Metzen himself that Sargeras is still alive, although his location remains unknown.

Character's games and general info

- Sargeras has made faint appearances in the Warcraft computer game trilogy, but only ever as a memory and not in person. He has also been mentioned in World of Warcraft. His grand appearances however, was in the novel trilogy War of the Ancients and the Last Guardian novel, written by respective Richard A. Knaak and Jeff Grubb.

Overview of powers

As a former Champion of the Pantheon, Sargeras is nearly impervious to physical damage. He is highly resistant to magical attacks. His natural attacks are more powerful than other titans. Demonic influences have given Sargeras' body flames and made him totally immune to fire damage and fel damage. Sargeras’ flesh burns with demonic energy, scorching everything in his path. Sargeras' body flames slowly increase the ambient temperature by up to fifty degrees in every direction for one thousand miles. The effect on natural climates can be devastating. All of this is of course to be kept relative to the Warcraft universe.

The exact powers at the dark titan's command are unclear, but we know that he possess unfathomable levels of magical knowledge. He is the source of the power amplifications of Kil'Jaeden and Archimonde, but in total there is very little known about the extent of his power.

He has been shown to display the following powers:

  • Telepathy (Able to commune with his servants, such as Mannoroth and Archimonde, from the Nether)
  • Illusion (Created a false vision of what he offered to the Eredar in exchange for their obedience)
  • Invulnerability against mortal weapons, and limited immunity to immortal weapons (The axe created by Cenarius for Broxigar was able to scratch him, but not to any great ffect, while the powers of the Demon Soul had no effect) as well as complete immunity to fire and fel magics (Note of course that this is in relation to the Warcraft universe).
  • Various magical abilities (Lashed out with energy at Illidan via the portal being opened to summon him).
  • Able to look into the mortal realm through the eyes of a chosen servant (His application on Illidan).
  • Cosmic knowledge (His reason of managing his duties as Champion.)
  • Ability to possess other beings (Remained within Aegwynn's womb for nearly a millennium.) and take control of them (Medivh).
  • Body Flames (Sargeras’ flesh burns with demonic energy, scorching everything in his path. Sargeras’s body flames slowly increase the ambient temperature by up to 50 degrees in every direction for 1,000 miles. The effect on natural climates can be devastating.)
  • His physical strength matches the power of a portal closing.
  • In comparison to Sargeras, Archimonde is a flea (This line is written as narration. This could be a reference to either power or height, it has never been specified.)

Equipment

  • Gorribal: (the Dark Seether) is a sword that was forged from one of the two Shatterbound fragments of Gorshalach. Wielded by Sargeras, this weapon embodies the darkness that exists in all beings, even noble ones
