I'm almost inclined to think Brox was written by someone else. The character interacted with everyone else and the world so much differently than all the other characters. He had personality, and his personality was reflected in his actions and his perceptions were made apparent when he spoke.One line made me like Broxigar. It made me smile when he he was talking to Tyrande, she healed him and he said, "I thank you, shaman". There was a lot of character in that line. It was simple, and short, but all the best lines are.What he did incurred consequences, and he felt many layers of emotions at once. Best of all, it wasn't overdone--having the 'heavier' spotlight characters like Rhonin around helped even more to make Broxigar actually compelling and feel less imposing, character-wise (them acting as a sort of damper). Which, while very likely unintentional, is convenient to the point of hilarity.Best of all, one scene in the book he featured made me miss him. Broxigar is one of the few characters in the Warcraft universe I can attest to feeling genuine remorse for. It wasn't just his death--it was his *willing* death. His death he gave to himself. Nothing short of literal suicide. It is, frankly, an element we don't see in the Warcraft universe much (if at all), which made the moment of impact that much sharper. You could see it coming--his intent for suicide--but that it would actually happen? Unpredictable. How often do characters in the WC universe commit suicide like that? Never. Even still, he was a LIKABLE character. Likable characters don't have a tendency to be taken out like that. It had a lot of impact.While Brox's legendary reputation precedes him, he somehow made out to be a great character when all was said and done. I will miss him.
