Since I was tagged by @worldofbeancraft​ here’s Vaard

Full Name: Vaard (no surname taken since being in Azeroth)
Gender and Sexuality: Male, Heterosexual
Pronouns: He/Him
Ethnicity/Species: Draenei
Birthplace and Birthdate: Shadowmoon before the Legion invasion of Draenor/ Now Outland.  Winter baby.

Guilty Pleasures: Sleeping when he’s supposed to be working.
Phobias: Fel taint.  He won’t get near the stuff/thing tainted unless he forces himself.  It’s a paranoia to the point of nightmares of being corrupted himself.
What They Would Be Famous For:  I wouldn’t say famous, but he would definitely be that one strict teacher or mentor everyone has horror stories about or gives sympathies to anyone under him.
What Have They / Would They Gotten Arrested For: Nothing he would intentionally do on purpose unless it was a misunderstanding.

OC You Ship Them With: None currently.  He’ll probably be single until the day he dies.
OC Most Likely To Murder Them: None there either unless someone just really hated him for reasons.
Favorite Book Genre: He says theology but loves mythology, especially when it comes from other races.
Least Favorite Book Cliche: Children’s picture books. 

Talents and/or Powers: Nothing of significance.  He’s average when it comes to the Light, has a knack for teaching or getting things done but is a decent writer when it comes down to it although he hates the process of writing itself.

Why Someone Might Love Them: Despite his abrasive personality when you first meet him, he is a big softy deep down and fiercely loyal to those he cares about or anyone who knows him well enough for him to feel comfortable to open up that much.
Why Someone Might Hate Them: He’s stubborn, bull headed, bossy, strict, leaves little room for error and doesn’t always talk enough to get his point or expectations across as clearly as some may like.

How They Change: He used to be quite different, not as coarse and reserved until the invasion of Shattrath where his wife and two children were killed.  His hatred for the Legion and Orcs after what happened in Draenor, and the loss of his family left him hardened and reserved that only gets worse as he ages.

Why You Love Them: Despite his flaws, he can be a big huggable bear sometimes.  He was one of my first characters that really drew me in and he’s changed a lot since I first started playing him, but he’s one I always go back to as one of my more favorite experiences in WoW.

Who You Tag: @insert-nerdy-username-here   (I’m not sure who else hasn’t done this yet, so I’m tagging everyone who wants to do this!)

Draenei headcanon time


like, imagine ski boots and horseshoes. They work similarly to ski boots in the sense draenei shove their hooves in the front of the shoe and step down to latch it in place, and it can either hook to the rest of the greave (armor) or “hug” the heel bulbs and the hoof itself meaning it will not constrict the flexor tendon and the draenei won’t feel anything on the wall of the hoof (which is like a fingernail)

This is just a quick sketch to get the idea down but I figured this could work for several classes such as special “shoes” for Rangari for climbing and rough terrain, or for paladins and warriors that have more weight and strength to them with cleats to secure their hooves to the ground as their swing their heavy weapons. Or as simple as just for comfort, health, or fashion.
