Magroth the Defender was one of the last paladins of the Silver Hand. He survived the Scourge's campaign through Lordaeron, and joined the last bastions of human resistance stationed in Dalaran. When the Naga overran what remained of the human city, Magroth's forces fled for Lordaeron and he held their retreat, only to be captured by the Naga.

However, he was captured by Illidan Stormrage and his Naga, and brought to the ruins of Dalaran. He was freed by Malfurion Stormrage and Maiev Shadowsong, and subsequently pledged himself to their cause and helped them destroy the Eye of Sargeras thus bringing Illidan's destruction of Icecrown to a halt.[1]

After the victory, Magroth did not see any reason to defend a ruined city now being swarmed by the Scourge, so he fled into the hills and wandered to Lordaeron. He gathered a small collection of footsoldiers, villagers and vagabonds who he convinced could reach safety in Lordaeron.

With his gang of refugees, he later joined Dagren the Orcslayer and Halahk the Lifebringer at the Lordaeron palace gardens in an effort to defend Alliance refugees who were coming under attack by Arthas's forces. During this defense, Magroth fell in battle against the death knight and his forces, but only after stubbornly repeating to Arthas that he and his fellow paladins would never give up.[2]

Magroth like his name, as the defender of mankind and shield of the Light.

Blades of the Fallen Prince - Magroth

Trapped within Icecrown Citadel.

Though his soul was trapped within Frostmourne, Magroth refused to relent under torture and stayed true to the Light. After the sword was shattered, his soul wandered Icecrown Citadel until those seeking the Blades of the Fallen Prince finally granted him peace by vanquishing him.
