Diminuitive in stature but not in intelligence, Spri Firemint is a master elementalist and a member of the Kirin Tor. Spri was one of the very few gnomes who ventured outside of the gnome capitol of Gnomeregan before the city met its radioactive demise. In fact, it was only her strange appearance that helped her survive a one-on-one with Prince Arthas himself. The tiny gnome met the fallen prince face-to-face as he tore through Dalaran in an effort to begin the summoning of the Burning Legion into Azeroth. Not expecting to encounter a gnome, Arthas gave a moment's hesitation before unleashing his deadly might on Firemint. Though the demonic energies from his terrible dark magic overwhelmed Firemint, she had already leapt to safety and was now falling unconscious through the air. Seconds later, after a three-story fall, Firemint hit the ground with a pitiful thud. It took her months to recover.
Firemint was not chastised for her instinct to flee from Arthas. Thankful for the fact that some of their number had survived the destruction of Dalaran, the Kirin Tor reassembled and drove out the Scourge that had stayed behind. Though their city lay in ruins, the Kirin Tor encased most of the rubble in an opaque magical barrier. Firemint helped generate this magical energy and occasionally is called back to patrol the surrounding areas. Firemint met Aletto DeMarly when he came to investigate Dalaran in an effort to collect information for his guide. Even after Aletto had left with what little information the Kirin Tor had allowed Firemint to provide him with, they remained in touch. Firemint is an expert in the geography of Lordaeron and is secretly working on a method to spy on the goings-on in Gilneas. Firemint hopes to succeed in her experiments and win the affection of Aletto, but the Forsaken hold the key to the chemicals and concoctions that she needs to perfect her device. Though she pledges neutrality to Aletto and his guide, she fears she may soon need to take to the battlefield against the Horde to complete her goals.
