Allied Races - Lightforged Draenei
These Draenei have fought the Burning Legion across the cosmos for a millenia. Infused with the Light by a Naaru ritual, this faction of Draenei joined the Army of the Light and helped vanquish the Legion on Argus. With their main purpose fulfilled, the Lightforged Draenei have joined their brethren in the Alliance to counter Horde aggression.
