Baratea was a mere mage, and a recently invited member of the Kirin Tor, when the Scourge first appeared. She fought with the other members to defend the city from Prince Arthas and his legions, and fled with the others when Archimonde appeared. After Dalaran fell, the Kirin Tor scattered, but Baratea and many others returned to the ruins of their home. There, the other magi combed the city for survivors, for lingering undead, and for anything they could use. Despite her youth, Baratea is a powerful archmage of Kirin Tor. She is presumed to be one of the leaders of the Kirin Tor.
