In a future "know your lore", can you explain why Malfurion Stormrage is half horse? Back in WC3 I had thought he was a centaur, but it seems Malfurion (and the dryads) are actually related to the moon elves, rather than the centaurs.And there's also the matter of his brother, Illidan, being a moon elf.

I can easily explain this: Malfurion's not half-horse. Could you be thinking of his mentor, Cenarius, who had the lower body of a horse?Malfurion: http://www.wowwiki.com/Malfurion_StormrageCenarius: http://www.wowwiki.com/CenariusMalfurion, like his lover Tyrande and his brother Illidan, (before that whole "Skull of Gul'dan" thing, anyway) is pure, 100%, Kalimdor-bred Night Elf. If you look at that WoWWiki page, you can even see screenshots of him from WC3, where he has to ride a mount for part of the game.Oh, and the centaur and the dryads are both half-horse because they are both, in their own ways, descended from Cenarius:http://www.wowwiki.com/Dryadhttp://www.wowwiki.com/CentaurThat all said, the Cenarius-centaur-dryad thing would make for an awesome KYL sometime, as the WoWWiki pages don't lay it out entirely clearly.
