Conthus Shadowbane (Refered to as Connor/Connu in old adventures) is a Half-Elf teenager born in 1997 B.C. (Before Cenarius,) who leads the more exciting side of the average adventurer, Usually his tales are considered too good to be true (See: Mary Sue) but are more exciting then just sitting around, talking and questing all day.
Creation of Conthus Edit
Creation, Gift of the Old Gods (Origin) Edit
Following in the wake of the Evolution of the Titans and there seperation from the 5 old gods who created them, some of the first to evolve became the mortal races on azeroth we know, but in early stages. After a long time, Some Became Humans. within these early stages the 3 families of Blackbane were created, The 3 were called as such: Blackbane (Origins), Nightbane (Patriotic decendents), Shadowbane (The Cousins to the Nightbanes)
With the Evolution to the mortal races still in progress, the old gods who were betrayed attempted to keep contact with the races, Most of these can be refered to by the second old god Yogg-Saron
As proven over the years, The Old gods gained control of there jailers. but they had to build it up, entering the minds of the races they bore, and creating those that could carry out the deeds of the old gods desires...
The 3 Families of Blackbane were themselves strong adventurers, some were fighters, some were explorers, and some were conquerers. in this case, everyone in the Shadowbane family had each profession. Marconiss Shadowbane (refered to as Razielos & Marcco) traveled with family and friend through the original Kalimdor and as a result, these few first human groups met the Kal'dorei, or simply Night Elves
After the long years of friendship between the 2 races, many things were shared, Land, Armies, Immortality Sources (See Nordrassil,) and even relationships. as a backfire, the decendents from the Shadowbane family from then on became Half-Elves. Its not needed to be said how. but from this Conthus Shadowbane & his Brothers and Sisters were created. yet with the confusion of the races, the youngest of the group, Conthus...had powers no man could explain. and as the case went cold and conthus was being raised... The 5 old gods laughed in the face of those who locked them up in there own kingdoms

And to Great suprise, A Telepathic Conversation was to the Explination that Neltharion and Conthus were not So Different (I Heard it too, Shut up!). Neltharion said that if Conthus and a Few other War Buddies could do they're part to aid him in vengeance in the future, Nel could let Conthus stay in the Shadows till he finishes the world that betrayed him
