Knob, I'd say Tirion and Thrall aren't even on the same level of Neutrality at all. Tirion has never really been pro-Alliance in game. When he first appeared in Vanilla, he gave his quests to both Horde and Alliance PCs and was ostensibly thrown out of the Alliance for daring to befriend a member of the Horde. In Wrath, he appeared in an Alliance village briefly, but was otherwise in the AC camps, where he didn't say anything really pro-Alliance. In the Tournament, he let Garrosh fling baseless accusations against the Alliance without defending them at all. In the Cataclysm era, the Forsaken are killing Alliance humans and resurrecting them into likely mind-controlled Forsaken drudges right on his doorstep (Not to mention replaguing the Plaguelanes), and he hasn't so much as protested.Thrall, in the meantime, was the head of the Horde at the time it was making war on the Alliance, in Kalimdor and the Eastern Kingdoms. Under his leadership, the Horde was slaughtering the Night Elves in Kalimdor and Humans in Arathi and Lordaeron, and while he gave lip service to peace when it was convenient, he generally did nothing real to stop the War. In the Goblin starting area, after he was ostensibly "neutral," He killed hundreds of Alliance soldiers indiscriminately in the Goblin starting zone, then sent Garrosh a bloodied Alliance emblem, ostensibly provoking him into war with the Alliance in the first place. In the trailer, the focus is almost primarily on the Horde and on Ogrimmar. The Welfare of the Horde is very obviously the first thing in Thrall's mind.Tirion is Human. He's not really Alliance, if he ever was. Thrall is Orc, but he is also Horde through and through.
