In my old days of role-playing on IRC, we ran into lots of "Mary Sue"s as you call them, but we had a different term. They were called "lemans" They were the ones who thrived in melodrama and the attention it relished. Their characters were all tragic, they all were tied closely to something big, and they wanted the attention. If they didn't get attention, they would go "die" then show up under a new character in five minutes and be the relative of their dead character coming to berate us all for not paying attention to them and letting their cousin/sister/brother/etc. die. The best way to deal with those kind of people is politely tell them (in private) why their stories don't work, and try and help them come up with something plausible.For my night elves, the closest they had to greatness was that they were alive when Azshara was around, one was an experiment for some almost unknown Highborne experiment, and the puppy of my hunter was stepped on by Archimonde when he was going for the World Tree. Does that make him important? Certainly not, but it gives my hunter a reason why he never will tame a canine.
