Around 4,000 years ago she was saved by Tyrande Whisperwind from the frostmaul giants. Since then the frostsaber have been allies of the night elves (this seems to re-affirm the idea that Frostsabers are sacred to the night elves (). )
Storm Shadowhoof wants Shy-Rotam killed and is sending Horde heros to hunt her down. Recently he has started recruiting Alliance members for the task. Shy-Rotam is summoned by using at the Stone of Shy-Rotam. When her health is low, her mate Sian-Rotam comes to her aid.
