Lore

Deathwing's true form

The art depicts Deathwing in his mortal form.

"Pain... Agony... My hatred burns through the cavernous deeps. The world heaves with my torment. Its wretched kingdoms quake beneath my rage. But at last... The whole of Azeroth will break... And all will burn beneath the shadow of my wings."

Black Dragon Aspect and once noble defender of Azeroth, Deathwing was corrupted by the Old Gods and turned against his former allies, becoming one of the greatest threats Azeroth has known. After a lengthy absence from the world, Deathwing explosively resurfaced, causing what would become known as the Cataclysm, changing the face of Azeroth forever. He was eventually destroyed during the final events of World of Warcraft: Cataclysm.

Deathwing is the husband of Sintharia; grandfather of Wrathion; brother of Alexstrasza, Ysera, Malygos and Nozdormu and father of Nefarian, Nyxondra and Onyxia.

Deathwing, formerly known as Neltharion the Earth-Warder, was one of the five Dragon Aspects Aspect of Earth and leader and king of the black dragonflight and Aspect of Earth. Thousands of years ago, Neltharion was empowered by the Titans with dominion over the earth and the deep places of Azeroth. However, driven mad by the Old Gods Especially N'Zoth, he turned against the other Aspects during the War of the Ancients. eventually abandoning his title of Aspect of Earth in favor of being the Aspect of Death. Among both mortals and dragons his name became one whispered with a feeling of fear and contempt.
The black aspect involved himself in the Second War, adopting the form of Lord Daval Prestor in order to destroy the Alliance from within. He also managed to turn his greatest enemy, Alexstrasza, into a slave of the Horde, with which he later allied himself. After a series of setbacks, culminating in his defeat at the hands of the other Aspects, Deathwing retreated to the elemental plane of Deepholm to recuperate. From there, he observed his former mate Sintharia's experiments with the twilight dragonflight in Grim Batol.
Though believed dead by many, Deathwing returned in spectacular fashion after the fall of the Lich King. His wrath resulted in the Shattering, which reshaped the map of Azeroth and unleashed widespread destruction; as the world reeled, he also appeared and brought flame to various regions of Azeroth. His ultimate goal was to bring about the Hour of Twilight - the final end of all life on Azeroth. To that end, he was aided by powerful allies, minions of his Old God masters. These included the warped ogre-mage Cho'gall and his Twilight's Hammer cult, the powerful Elemental Lords Al'Akir and Ragnaros, and the Neferset tol'vir of Uldum.
Uniting their powers, the remaining Dragon Aspects sent adventurers to brave the unstable paths of the Caverns of Time to retrieve the Dragon Soul, an ancient artifact crafted by Deathwing himself ten thousand years earlier and destroyed shortly after the Second War, and believed to be the only means of defeating him. With the weapon secure, the Aspects took the battle to their corrupted brother, with the orc shaman Thrall as the wielder of the Soul, now imbued with Deathwing's essence - the very essence of the earth itself. After laying siege to the Wyrmrest Temple and unleashing his most powerful minions, Deathwing took to the skies, until he was blasted into the Maelstrom by the powers of the Soul. His body at last giving way to the corruption within, Deathwing made his final stand in the raging torrent of the Maelstrom, until he was at last destroyed by the combined powers of the shaman, the Aspects, and the mortal champions sent to defeat him.
