1a. Varian - hot-headed, brutal, violent, racist, and more than a little unstable. He is absolutely devoted to his people, however, and tries his best to overcome his failings to lead them. Having lost his wife, he considers his son his absolute greatest treasure and would (and has) done anything to save him. He was, briefly, split into two people. They were merged, which created a sort of bipolar Varian "Lo'Gosh" Wrynn.

1b. Garrosh - extremely ruthless and hotheaded, believes in the Orcs as some kind of master race. He is not really able to relate to others, however, even of his own race which makes his worthiness as a leader somewhat questionable.

2a. Tyrande - highly protective of her people, despite being a generally peaceful priestess she is also a skilled warrior. She is somewhat rash, although not as much as Varian. She loves most of her people and the forest, but she is incredibly untrusting of other people.

2b. Sylvanas - truly ruthless, defiant and stubborn. She is a born leader and an expert tactician.

3a. Velen - loving, trusting, incredibly wise. Super flat character, but then again..... did you expect more? You played that expansion!

3b. Lor'themar - uhm...... he's..... uhm..... able to speak in at least two languages? And.... and.... he.... leads people? I think?

4a. Magni Bronzebeard - unsure of himself, yet a strong leader for his people. He is very reflective upon the past but is able to jump to action when it is called for. In general, he is not very assertive but can be very authoritative when he wants to be. Of course, he's a diamond now so his personality is kind of irrelevant. :P

4b. Cairne Bloodhoof - dead, at the moment. Before that, he was wise and levelheaded -- possibly the most levelheaded leader in either faction? He was also incredibly brave. Until he got killed!

5a. Mekkatorque - ill-equipped to lead people, Makkatorque is a complete engineering genius. While a skilled tactician, he is not by any means a military genius. His understanding of people also leaves much to be desired, which is why he sometimes needs help inspiring his own people and spurring them to action. Because of this he is often swayed by others and can be somewhat gullible. Still, he recognizes their needs and would do anything to fulfill them.

5b. Vol'jin - wise and subtle, Vol'jin will do anything to support his people even at the cost of his own pride and dignity. He is very thoughtful and spends time on each careful decision that he makes. He is also highly loyal.... to Thrall and any other who has earned his respect.

6a. Genn Graymane - xenophobic and selfish on behalf of his people. He is proud and stubborn but not unkind. He is impatient, but is understanding of plights of others.

6b. Gallywix - cunning, scheming, dishonest and disrespectful. And downright mean!

Someone issued a challenge on the WoW forums to see if anyone could describe the personalities of all the leaders. His argument was that all Horde leaders are more fleshed out than Alliance leaders.
Unfortunately for his point, no one has yet been able to describe Lor'themar the Blood Elf leader. :P

Cool! I find this Paste to be quite appropriate. (There is no Ctrl-V on my EVO 4G, just press, hold, and Paste.)

-trying to justify going home 30 minutes early to myself...
-just realizing that I didn't see the collaborators from Australia at all today... weird...
-suddenly realizing that I am hungry...
-putting together that this is because I came in late, had a chocolate croissant and a mocha for "breakfast" in the canteen, and then never had anything else to eat...
-thinking that I can justify leaving to get a sandwich from Subway... especially as my code is running :D (and it's a task that took the better part of the day to do the first time I did it)


I just got into the office... so I don't really know why my Ctrl+V is my What Are You Doing post...

The triumphal arch collapsed in 1850, but early watercolours of the entrance show it still intact.

I was moving something around in a paper. :P Oh! Points if you can figure out what I'm talking about.
