Anasterian Sunstrider

Anasterian Sunstrider was the last high elven king of Quel Thalas, and reigned during the Troll Wars. Seeing his people close to defeat, he desperately sought the humans of Arathor as allies against the trolls in exchange for elves teaching humans the secrets of magic. Together, the humans and elves defeated the trolls — inflicting on them a defeat from which they would never fully recover.  After the Troll Wars, Anasterian pledged the eternal support of the elves to the Arathi, the bloodline of King Thoradin.

During the Second War, he reluctantly joined the Lordaeron Alliance, honor-bound to fulfill the pledge to the Arathi, of whom Lord Anduin Lothar was the last. Anasterian was forced to contribute more of Quel'Thalas's armies when the outer forests were attacked by the Horde. Following the war and the destruction of Quel'Thalas's borderlands, he withdrew his nation from the Alliance, citing poor leadership on the humans' part that led to the burning of Quel'Thalas's forests.
