Answer
 
The contest has finally come to a close! Today’s answer was: Gunther Arcanus. Now he may not be the most well-known NPC, but he’s pretty damn cool. Let’s look at our clues:
 

Clue 1: Gunther, after freeing himself from the Lich King (this is a pretty incredible feat to do so by oneself), never allied himself with any faction. He sat on an island alone, surrounded by the mindless dead. He believed every undead was like those around him and in the Scourge.

 

It wasn’t until a book of a Lich was uncovered that the Forsaken and Sylvanas finally remembered him. Through his old friend, Bethor Iceshard, you make contact with this incredibly powerful being and convince him that there is a faction of undead free from the Lich King.

 

Clue 2: Before his death in the Third War, Gunther was actually a mage and necromancer within the Kirin Tor. He was an incredibly powerful mage in life, and even more so in death. One of the books within The Violet Citadel lists him as one of the casualties of the war.

 

Clue 3: This references the fact that he was surrounded by that which he feared he had become; the mindless dead wander around the island and he believed this was everything the undead was capable of.

 

Clue 4: This references the fact that the island on which he is camped is in the middle of Brightwater Lake, in Tirisfal Glades. It is directly in view of the Undercity, hence the city of the banshee royalty, Sylvanas.

  3. SnappleJesus: 65 Points

I don't know if it's ok, but my first answer wasn't entirely correct, the NPC is Shade of Aran, but i only wrote the Person, Nielas Aran.
