|Archbishop Alonsus Faol|
|Title||Archbishop of the Church of Light|

|Student(s)||Benedictus, Uther the Lightbringer|
Alonsus Faol was the head of the Holy Order of Northshire Clerics prior to the First War between the humans and orcs. Following the terrible attrition suffered by his clerics in that conflict and the destruction of Northshire Abbey, the aged Faol fled with the surviving citizens of Stormwind to Lordaeron.
Aided by his apprentice, Uther Lightbringer, Faol refounded the Order as the Knights of the Silver Hand, this time equipping the followers of the Holy Light in the armaments of war. Alonsus Chapel, in Stratholme, was the site where he anointed Uther as the first of the paladins.
Prior to the cataclysm, a statue and fountain in front of the Cathedral of Light in Stormwind City honored all the hard work done by Faol following the Second War, raising funds to help rebuild the city and reestablishing the Brotherhood of Northshire. This statue and its plaque were modified at the release of World of Warcraft: Cataclysm to honor Uther instead.
Faol died of unknown causes (perhaps simply old age) some time prior to the coming of the Scourge to Lordaeron. His final resting place is presumed to be Faol's Rest, a graveyard in the now-plagued Tirisfal Glades, located near Scarlet Monastery.
His original name, before he became an archbishop, may have been "Farol".
- It is speculated that Faol's Rest in the now horde-controlled Tirisfal Glades may be the final resting place of Alonsus Faol.
