|Aletto Demarly||Shadow Council||Paladin||32||None|
Aletto DeMarly is a renowned missionary for the Stormwind Cathedral of Light. Though other missionaries may criticize his lack of religious zeal, the leaders of the cathedral are perfectly satisfied with his methods. Instead of intimidating or overwhelming villagers, townfolk, and farmers with dramatic descriptions of the Light's power and grandeur, Aletto instead captures the attention and imagination of his listener with tales of prosperity and advancement experienced by those who put their faith in the Light. Aletto is as devoted to travelling the world as he is to spreading his beliefs - he documents his travels and experiences all over the world in a large leather-bound book. He began his writings at the rage of 23, and now (nearly a decade later) they are slowly being published. His original writings were filled with references to his religion and had a slight bias. These writings, of which excerpts will be posed on this page, are mostly private. The guides being published today are the works of ten different individuals!
Aletto decided to create his Guide to Azeroth after reading Brann Bronzebeard's brief but detailed reports on the goings-on in Azeroth's many distinct areas and regions. Inspired to create a more up-to-date guide to the world, which had changed considerably in the span of a few short years, Aletto set to work on the Guide. After presenting his information to the Ironforge Explorer's Guild, he was lauded with praise but warned that there was some underlying religious bias in his writing. In order to create a more complete and less opinionated guide, Aletto recruited the help of no fewer than nine other denizens of Azeroth to help him with his monumental task. Currently, Aletto is slowly publishing completed chapters of his massive guide with the help of his fellow Alliance allies. Talks have stalled between Aletto and his contacts in the Horde, but it has been agreed upon that their insights into the world from their perspective will be included in the guide as well. It is not certain when this will happen, however.
Aside from his guide, Aletto enjoys visiting towns and playing the auction house for safe and secure profit. Though he often has to fight for his own life as well as to complete quests assigned to him by the church, Aletto is mostly a pacifist and holds no rank with the Alliance army. It is widely speculated that his drive to explore the world stems from the fact that his parents disappeared some years ago. Natives of Gilneas, Aletto's parents have not contacted their son since the nation isolated itself behind the Greymane Wall many years ago. When not travelling the world or spreading the Light, Aletto journeys to the wall and spends a day protecting the refugees from Worgen attack and attempting to convince them to travel east to Southshore.
