Taelia and Greymane on Bolvar Fordragon (Spoilers)
Taelia and Greymane discuss Bolvar Fordragon on the Shadowlands beta. Story spoilers.
Death's Rising pre-patch questline
, Genn lets it slip that Bolvar is still alive in front of Taelia. As Bolvar's fate was kept secret for many years, she was unaware that her father was alive.
In the recent Shadowlands build, we have extended dialogue between Taelia and Greymane. She's unhappy the truth was hidden from her, not only by Greymane but also Anduin.
Taelia: All this tie you knew my father was alive, but you didn't tell me?!
Greymane: It's not that simple, Taelia. Your father was presumed lost at the Wrathgate. It wasn't until later that we learned the truth.
Greymane: Dragon's flame had saved his life, but scarred his flesh. And in an act of vengeance, Arthas Menethil captured and tormented him.
Greymane: When the Lich King was defeated, someone had to take up the mantle and keep the Scourge in check. Your father assumed that burden, knowing it would cost him everything.
Greymane: Tirion Fordring swore to keep Bolvar's choice a secret. He made us take the same vow. We believed that knowing his fate would only bring you pain.
Taelia: "We"? Anduin knew too, didn't he? The king told me story after story about my father as if he were some long-dead hero of the past. But the whole time, Anduin hid the truth.
Greymane: Please forgive us, Taelia. We honestly believed he was a casualty of war. That Bolvar Fordragon was truly gone, to be forevermore the Lich King.
Taelia: Well, you were wrong. Now I know my father is alive, free from that damned helm. And no matter what it takes, I will go to his side.
In Battle for Azeroth, Anduin told Taelie they'd discuss Bolvar when the war had ended, but in Patch 8.3 he ignored Taelia's visit:
Katherine Proudmoore says: King Wrynn, there is someone you should meet.
Katherine Proudmoore says: Along with your champion, she was instrumental in saving our kingdom... and my life.
Taelia says: It is an honor to meet you, King Wrynn. I am Taelia.
Taelia says: Taelia Fordragon.
Anduin Wrynn says: Fordragon?!
Katherine Proudmoore says: Daughter of Bolvar. Fostered under our protection since the third war.
Anduin Wrynn says: Taelia... please, rise. The honor is mine.
Taelia says: Did you know my father?
Anduin Wrynn says: Highlord Bolvar was a great man. A true hero to the Alliance--and to me.
Anduin Wrynn says: I remember now... he used to write you letters. He had a nickname for you...
Taelia says: "My shining star."
Taelia says: The letters stopped coming. I... I have so many questions.
Anduin Wrynn says: Taelia, when time permits, you must come to Stormwind as my guest. I have many stories to share about your father.
Jaina: The Old God has been vanquished. The Alliance and Horde have ended hostilities.
Jaina: This should be a day of celebration, Anduin. Yet you wear your troubles like a crown.
Anduin: I'm so glad that after all you endured, you have found peace within your heart, Jaina. I can't say the same about myself, though. Not yet.
Anduin: Sylvanas is out there somewhere. Until she's brought to justice, I don't think Tyrande or Genn will truly consider the war to be over.
Jaina: The Kul Tiran fleet is scouring the seas, and Shaw has spies searching every dark corner of Azeroth. She can't hide for long.
Anduin: I don't believe she will. Which is exactly what concerns me.
Anduin: I saw you speaking with a messenger from Kul Tiras, Jaina. Is everything alright?
Jaina: Nothing to worry about. It was a letter from a certain eager cadet asking to see Stormwind... and to learn more about her father.
Anduin: Taelia. Please tell her that this isn't a good time for visitors.
Jaina: She deserves to hear the truth, Anduin. From you.
Anduin: Tirion Fordring himself made us swear that we would keep the secret of Bolvar's fate. You made that vow just as I did.
Jaina: I remember your father once telling me that the hardest thing about a promise isn't keeping it, but knowing when it's right to break it.
Anduin: Bolvar was a noble man. To know that he sits frozen upon that accursed throne, devoting his very life to keeping the monsters at bay...
Anduin: It breaks my heart. I can't bear to see it break Taelia's, too.
Jaina: The decision is yours, Anduin. But if she learns that the truth was kept from her, it will hurt her all the more.
