WoW NPC named after Cancer Victim

the StarOnion Brigade

This NPC is actually a Victim of Cancer IRL.

Aldor NPC

I was clicking around Scragg’s alliance character and saw this random NPC. I was wondering what the hell he’s doing since.. most NPC don’t have pets and… the name didn’t sound so WoW. I checked and this dude is actually a player who died 4 months ago due to Cancer. In remembering this player, guild mates of Caylee sent a request to Blizzard to do something in remembering this player, and they ended up putting an NPC with the exact gear as the… player himself and gave him a very touchy quest. Deliver a poem from a friend to Caylee, and the poem is as follows.

“Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there. I do not sleep.

I am in a thousand winds that blow,
across Northrend’s bright and shining snow.

I am the gentle showers of rain,
on Westfall’s fields of golden grain.

I am in the morning hush,
of Stranglethorn’s jungle, green and lush.

I am in the drums loud and grand,
the thunderous hooves across Nagrand.

I am the stars warmly gleaming,
over Darnassus softly dreaming.

I am the birds that sing.
I am in each lovely thing.

Do not stand at my grave and cry.
I am not there. I do not die.

Oh.. one more thing. WoW players was discussing FFXi’s AV boss. If you are bored, can go read it here.
