Background: Maevar Sunblade is part of Sunblade noble family in Silvermoon, albeit over the years it's members have dramatically diminished. Sunblade family was one families tasked in guarding Sunwell, which they failed to do so against Arthas and in ensuing conflict 90% of the family was slain in said battle. Leaving only handful survivors who were then blamed repeatedly by their society in failing in their duty and thus remaining family members stepped down being nobles as sort of self-inflicted penance for their failure.
Maevar remembers those times grimly as his sister who was also a mage then started study arts of warlock as she felt she needed more
power to protect Silvermoon, at any cost. Over the years she ceased to be sister altogether to Maevar and she now only cares about power what infernal magics provide to her. At first Kael'thas was beacon of hope for the people and Maevar gladly embraced his message and after countless travels and trials reached Outland....only witness the grim truth of nature of Kael'thas alliances and what he had become and those who followed him. He had always admired his king and thus seeing him like this betrayed his childhood image what he had about Kael'thas.
But then came danger from the north, Northerend. One his cousins who was a paladin and worked for Argent Dawn was slain in plaquelands...and later returned as undead abomination as deathknight after he had slain his sister who was paladin who had also been captured but had not been chosen for transformation. He faced his own father who had become a vampiric abomination, a Darkfallen, under influence Blood-Queen Lana'thel. In addition facing his father in spell duel and destroying him, Maevar faced a blue dragon which had been mentor in his mage studies in his youth until he graduated.....and in Nexus war slew her, despite fond memories they had time together and having even crush on her.
In Cataclysm when Deathwing soared in skies he faced betrayal whiting in his own family; as his own mother had become Twilight cultist in since loss of Sunwell and lost all faith and belief for better tomorrow. Even restoration of Sunwell did not change her mind. As former priestess of sun she had embraced shadow magic and turned ruthless in it's use and she used Maevar's inner demons to leave scars which haven't healed even today. But still she also defeated Maevar has slain his both his parents and it was very grim moment for him which made him numb for even cruelties what Garrosh demanded him to perform.
On discovery of Pandaria there was facing of Sha, Garrosh increasing hostilities, bombardment of Theramore and also Maevar exiled from Dalaran where he has been long time been regular visitor and student also. Then civil war where he was forced slay those whom he had traveled or fought besides at......in all that conflict, chaos and loss he then decided this was enough for him. So he literally disappeared from the surface of the society, traveling at loss what to do or what purpose to live for....then he comes across in academy in Tanaris which takes students both from alliance and horde races.....the idyllic look of the academy was comforting salve which soothed wounds in his war ravaged soul so he entered academy and applied as teacher for magic, especially for those interested for career as mages. Also teaching about enchanting and jewelcrafting.
Character Description: Maevar is simply war ravaged middle aged blood elf who is tired on conflict and wants 'retire' to more peaceful career path as a teacher. He enjoys peaceful quiet moments, literature and cooking (albeit he can magically conjure foods he prefers his own self-made meals). Although he has lost taste for violence his years of experience in warfare and battles show when he is angered and feels either himself or students threatened. Also as blood elf he is cunning in magic use to point of creative improvisation which could impress some archmages in Dalaran thanks his tutoring by a blue dragon in his youth giving further deeper insight to nature of magic and arcane.
