Tbf Jaina is unique in the universe of HotS in the sense that she must regularly bump into her exes Kaelthas and Arthas. I think anyone would be a little Dreadlordy if they had to go to work with that overshadowing them every day. Jaina is a Dreadlord sounds almost exactly like the sort of thing a jilted lover in this world would say too. The only other ones that come close are the pointy eared night elf muppets, but they're to blame for some of the most epic screw ups in Azeroth's history, and one of them already IS half demon too, so...

smh, y'all don't even comment on the fact that they spelled your name wrong in the talent box

Already submitted a formal complaint, tweeted about it, made 3 Instagram posts and got it tattooed on my back. HOW DARE THEY?
