Renault is the older son of Highlord Alexandros Mograine, also known as the Ashbringer, and the older brother of Darion Mograine
. As a child he lived in Brill, and when his younger brother was born, his mother died from post partum complications. He joined the Silver Hand at a young age, close to the end of the Third War.
Grand Crusader Saidan Dahtrohan (Which is actually Dreadlord Balnazzar
in a human form) had a deal with Kel'Thuzad
to kill Alexandros Mograine, to pass on the position of Scarlet Commander to Dathrohan, meaning that the Scarlet Crusade could be taken off of Kel'Thuzad's list of troubles. Dathrohan recruited Renault promising him great power and promotions within the Scarlet Crusade, only if he could kill his father.
Alexandros and Inquisitor Fairbanks
were led by Renault into Stratholme
, the very stronghold of the Scourge
in the Plaguelands. Alexandros and Fairbanks were struck down by ambushing Scourge, and with Alexandros still standing after the battle, Renault fled. Alexandros was weakened after the battle, and dropped his blade
. His son picked up the blade and thrust it through his fathers heart, killing Alexandros and corrupting the blade. In the end, it doomed them both to the service of Kel'Thuzad.
Renault got his promotion to Scarlet Commander, and he was sent to the Scarlet Monastary
in Tirisfal. Time went by, but his betrayal would not be forgotten. Even when the Argent Dawn
and the Scarlet Crusade stormed the necropolis Naxxramas
and destroyed the corrupted Alexandros, only his blade remained. It was picked up by Darion who then went to the Scarlet Monastary to slay Renault. When the two brothers confronted each other, Renault lashed out on Darion however the Ashbringer acted on it's own releasing a flaming spirit of their father Alexandros who then decapitated Renault - Alexandros finally got his revenge.
World of Warcraft Encounter
In World of Warcraft,
the encounter with Renault Mograine in the Scarlet Monastery is a two part fight. First you fight him until he falls, then High Inquisitor Whitemane
enters the fray. When she is brought to 50% health, she will put a sleep effect on everyone in the party, and then ressurect Mograine to full health and mana. She will then heal herself and the fight goes on with both Mograine and Whiteman at 100% health and mana. A popular tip is to kill Whitemane first, and then kill Mograine.
However, be sure that if you are being boosted by someone, that they do not kill Whitemane until she ressurects. If she dies without Mograine, then you will recieve no loot for the encounter.
