Just a thought but I, like others, doubt the Worgen we'd be seeing are wereworgen but more likely natives of the Dream.And if that's the case, I suspect their faction leader is probably one of three people:Valinde Starsong, Malfurion Stormrage or Elune herself.Just a note too:Elune is a MOON goddess. What do Worgen howl at? Uh-huh.In general, my suspicion is that while the Night Elves worship Elune, she has closer servants in the Worgen much the way the Islamo-Judeo-Christian deity has angels and the Greek gods have various beasts, sprites and pixies in their service.Still, I like the idea of both races being neutral or having versions in both factions.That would be a case of Blizzard recycling art properties and dev time fairly effectively.

All we know about the Dream is what some Night Elves and Dragons have said.We know that the Worgen are from another universe.The only other universe with lore behind it is the Emerald Dream.And if the ED IS a questing locale, we'll need cities or quest hubs.So far, there are... Dragonkin there. Titan structures there. I seem to recall that an expedition of Furbolgs went there. Malfurion is there.I think at the end of the day, the absence of sapient creatures just means an absence of creatures created in the Titans' own image (Vrykul, humans, gnomes, dwarves), space aliens (Draenei and Orcs) and the Trolls and the elven race that are their offspring.It doesn't necessarily mean "no humanoids" but maybe "no Azerothian humanoids".And maybe that's the Taurens' home and the unifying aesthetic is that all humanoids in the Dream are animal people like Taurens, Taunka, Worgen, Tigons and pandarans.

"...Tigons..."Just an FYI, the "Tigons" are trolls from Zul'Gurub. They've drawn power from Shirvallah and Bethekk, the feline Loa gods, and transformed into humanoid cats. They're not a proper race.
