Any class needs its role models. Rogues don't have all that many great heroes from lore, but the ones they do have stand out, especially for the prominence of women in this class.
Garona Halforcen is probably the most famous of rogue protagonists, one of the main characters of the original Warcraft I storyline that launched the whole Warcraft series. She's been strangely missing ever since the end of the First War, actually, but it seems that she is finally making her comeback to the story in the World of Warcraft Comic Book. Her full story is best left for others to tell (such as the immensely talented Elizabeth Wachowski, or the mysterious collective mind known as WoWWiki), but for now, suffice it to say that she represents a lot of what makes rogues who and what they are. Here's a few reasons why:
- She's incredibly cool.
- She doesn't talk about how incredibly cool she is.
- She has conflicted loyalties, neither all good nor all bad.
- There's so much we don't know about her, and so much we want to discover.
- She's something of a lone wolf, extremely independent and active.
- Her skill with words was just as important as her skill with weapons.
- She has a great wealth of complicated emotions and ideas that drive her deeper into the story.
