泰瑞纳斯·米奈希尔二世洛丹伦最后一位正统君主,自阿拉索分裂三千年以来第一次人类王国联合组建的洛丹伦联盟的主要建立者之一。[1] 他历经二战三战,统治国家五十余年。泰瑞纳斯作为联盟的支持者,出于政治考虑维持着联盟的统一。[2]他的儿子阿尔萨斯对他的谋杀使得联盟在历史的关键时刻失去了领导者。

概述

二战期间的洛萨,托尔贝恩和泰瑞纳斯·米奈希尔

泰瑞纳斯·米奈希尔二世出生于人类最强大的国家之一的洛丹伦王国宫廷,是统治这个国家数代之久的皇室家族米奈希尔的成员。泰瑞纳斯与索拉斯·托尔贝恩是故友,[3]他成长为一个睿智而公正的统治者,深受人民的爱戴。他多年的和平统治给洛丹伦带来了繁荣富裕,但一切都因二战的开始而改变了。

据说泰瑞纳斯的祖父曾与位于其领地北方的奎尔萨拉斯的精灵进行过协商并获得了成功。[4]

黑暗之潮

WoW-novel-logo-16x62.png 本段文字所记述的内容来自魔兽争霸系列小说短篇

一战之后,由安度因·洛萨爵士带领的暴风王国难民,包括王子瓦里安·乌瑞恩卡德加,抵达了洛丹伦的海岸。他们前往王城会见了泰瑞纳斯,带来了关于兽人和即将到来的入侵的警告。泰瑞纳斯召集了邻近人类国家的代表,在听过洛萨爵士关于他的人民的可怕故事后,他们同意组建洛丹伦联盟。泰瑞纳斯同时向奎尔萨拉斯的精灵和铁炉堡矮人请求援助。瓦里安王子被安排与他的家人住在一起,和阿尔萨斯成为了朋友,泰瑞纳斯将瓦里安视为自己的第二个儿子。[5]

二战中泰瑞纳斯组织了抵御部落突袭王城的战斗部队。[6]他甚至指挥了那场几乎毁灭了洛丹伦的战斗中的守卫部队,他的王国在这场战斗中濒临毁灭边缘,国王本人也差点被一个兽人杀死,所幸兽人被卫队长莫雷夫杀死。但最终,他们的牺牲并没有白费,联盟获得了胜利,消灭了绝大部分的部落,将剩余的兽人关押到集中营,由艾德拉斯·布莱克摩尔负责管理。兽人大酋长奥格瑞姆·毁灭之锤被泰瑞纳斯当做私人囚犯, was kept as the personal prisoner of Terenas, the human king fervently hoping that a treaty could be arranged with the orcish leader. Terenas thought that if the orcs could be kept pacified long enough, they ought to eventually lose their lust for conquest, and as such he pleaded to keep them interned instead of executing them.[7] Doomhammer eventually escaped captivity and fled into hiding.

战争之后

WoW-novel-logo-16x62.png 本段文字所记述的内容来自魔兽争霸系列小说短篇

Despite the end of the Second War, peace did not last long. He and the other kings of the Alliance were present at the meeting in Nethergarde Keep. Later, he met with Thoras Trollbane, Muradin Bronzebeard, and Lord Daval Prestor and discussed the matter with Alterac and Perenolde. When it was discovered that the rift to the orc's home world was expanding, Terenas immediately decreed in conjunction with Varian Wrynn, who had assumed his rightful place on the throne of Stormwind, and the other kings to rally the Alliance army that would venture into Draenor in order to retrieve the artifacts stolen by the Horde and end the orcish threat for good. The Alliance Expedition led by Khadgar and Turalyon undertook the Invasion of Draenor, eventually succeeding and and sealing the Dark Portal from the other side to prevent Draenor's destruction from destroying Azeroth as well.[2][8]

Some years later, the matter of what to do with the Kingdom of Alterac came up. Trollbane wanted to split the lands between Lordaeron and Stromgarde. However, King Genn Greymane supported Lord Perenolde's nephew Isiden's claim to the throne while Admiral Daelin Proudmoore of Kul Tiras was opposed to Gilnean influence in the region. Lord Prestor, who appeared to be a relative to the late Lord Perenolde, was one of Terenas's trusted advisors during this time, and Terenas began to arrange a marriage for Prestor to his young daughter Calia. Terenas even wished his own son was more like Prestor.[9] Prestor was endorsed by most Alliance nations as the new king of Alterac, solving everyone's—and particularly Terenas's—political nightmare. This plan was scrapped, however, when Prestor suddenly disappeared.

During the winter when Arthas's mount, Invincible, died, Terenas and Uther were off on a diplomatic mission in Stromgarde. Terenas was later present during a ceremony in Stormwind City, where Arthas became a paladin. He told him that he was proud of him that day, which confused Arthas as he was unsure if his father was ever proud of him until that day.[10]

联盟的分裂

When the political problems culminated, Terenas realized that the Alliance would crumble. The first ally to secede were the elves of Quel'Thalas, as they blamed the humans for not being able to save their burned forests. Terenas tactfully reminded them that it was the Alliance that saved them from being annihilated entirely. Gilneas then separated from the whole world behind the Greymane Wall and Thoras Trollbane proposed a mass execution of the orcs but Lordaeron refused to do so. The quarrels of the two friends ended when Stromgarde too seceded from the Alliance. In spite of these loses, many nations remained with Lordaeron and Uther, who considered him as a brother, alongside Alonsus Faol had helped him to rebuild Lordaeron and other kingdoms.[11][12]

混乱之治

WC3RoC logo 16x32.png 本段文字所记述的内容来自魔兽争霸III

Time wore on and Terenas grew more and more infirm, struggling to hold together the collapsing Alliance despite all of his pleas with the dissident nations of Gilneas, Stromgarde, and Quel'Thalas. Nonetheless, Terenas still had allies he could rely on, as the nations of Stormwind, Kul Tiras, Dalaran, and Ironforge remained committed to the Alliance. In the meantime, his son, Arthas, became the prized protégé of Uther the Lightbringer and a paladin of the Silver Hand.

The troubles began with the orcish uprisings through Arathi, as well as the Plague spreading from the North. Many of the Alliance representatives, especially the ones from Dalaran, were pleading for a quarantine. But Terenas refused, saying that the people of Lordaeron had suffered enough. The mysterious prophet unexpectedly materialized during a council of the Alliance, and pleaded with Terenas to make haste to Kalimdor or all would be lost. Terenas, however, paid no heed, thinking him little more than a madman. It was here that King Terenas sealed his fate.

Weeks later, Terenas heard of Arthas's strange behavior, including the destruction of Stratholme and his excursion to Northrend. Terenas immediately ordered the troops recalled at Uther's request, but no word was heard from them for months.

谋杀

Arthas murders Terenas.

Finally, Prince Arthas returned, victorious over the evil he had faced in Northrend. All of Lordaeron's Capital City rejoiced in festival, celebrating the long-awaited return of their heroic prince. But something was amiss.

As he knelt before his father, a dark voice flooded Arthas's thoughts. He rose up, drew his sword, and approached the throne. Taking his father by the throat, Arthas drove the dark runeblade Frostmourne through his heart. Thus did Terenas of the House of Menethil, King of Lordaeron, die at the hands of his own son—bringing an end to not only his reign, which had lasted for 50 years, but also to the Kingdom of Lordaeron itself.

Terenas's ashes were kept in a magical urn, guarded by Uther the Lightbringer himself. Arthas, desiring the urn for his own ends, slew the great paladin, and discarded his father's ashes which were scattered by the winds near Andorhal.

纪念碑

The inscription on Terenas's tomb.

A tomb dedicated to the king stands behind the throne room of Lordaeron:

Here Lies King Terenas Menethil II

Here lies King Terenas Menethil II -- Last True King of Lordaeron.


Great were his deeds -- long was his reign -- unthinkable was his death.


"May the Father lie blameless for the deeds of the son.
May the bloodied crown stay lost and forgotten."

The plate containing this inscription is missing from the tomb during the Battle for the Undercity. The tomb was crafted by the ruined city's former citizens, who risked everything to ensure his memory would not be forgotten.[13]

巫妖王的陨落

WotLK 本段文字所记述的内容来自魔兽世界:巫妖王之怒
Terenas resurrects the fallen.
Terenas holds his dead son's body.

The soul of Terenas Menethil II speaks to the Lich King warning him that the combined might of the Alliance, the Horde, the Argent Crusade and the Knights of the Ebon Blade have finally fought their way to Icecrown Citadel itself to defeat him once and for all.

Terenas's spirit appears in Icecrown Citadel during the battle against the Lich King. When players falls victim to the "Harvest Soul" spell, they are brought into Frostmourne itself, where they find Terenas struggling against the spirit warden of the sword. The player must aid Terenas in defeating it, at which point the blade becomes weakened enough for him to be able to return the player to the real fight. At 10%, the Lich King then kills the entire raid and prepares to raise them as his most powerful servants when Tirion Fordring, frozen for the entire fight, breaks free of his bonds and shatters Frostmourne with the Ashbringer. As the souls claimed by Frostmourne swirl around the Lich King, Terenas's spirit appears to resurrect the dead to finish off the immobilized master of the Scourge.

During the outro cinematic, Terenas remains at Arthas's side as he dies.

Arthas lies supine, the shattered remnants of Frostmourne beside him. He stares as the ghost of Terenas Menethil materializes over him from the freed souls circling the area, and the characteristic blue glow dissipates from his eyes. Terenas kneels down, and cradles his son's head, neck and shoulder so they can properly look at each other.
Arthas Menethil: Father? (With his last burst of energy, Arthas places a hand on his father's chest.) Is it... over?
Terenas lays a comforting hand on Arthas's gauntlet as he answers.
Terenas Menethil II: At long last. No king rules forever, my son.
Arthas Menethil: I see... only darkness... before me...
Arthas's eyes roll back, his hand falling from his father's to the ground. Terenas closes Arthas's eyes and just holds his boy as Tirion walks closer, just past the inner ring to the Menethils. As he next speaks, Terenas gently lays his son on the ground.
Terenas Menethil II: Without its master's command, the restless Scourge will become an even greater threat to this world.
Terenas stands, looking at Tirion as the paladin meets his gaze.
Terenas Menethil II: Control must be maintained... There must always be...(Flash of lighting lights up sky behind him with deafening crack of thunder) a Lich King...
Terenas's ghost and the swirling souls disappear, and Tirion shields his eyes from the blinding light.

旁白

巫妖王之怒预告片

Terenas Menethil II narrates the opening cinematic to World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King, reminding Arthas of his duty as the heir to the throne of Lordaeron.[15]

我的儿子,你出生的那天,整个洛丹伦的森林都在低语着这个名字,阿尔萨斯。
孩子,我骄傲地看着你一天天长大,成为正义的化身。
你要记住,我们一直都是以智慧和力量统治这个国家,我也相信,你会谨慎地使用自己强大的力量。
但是真正的胜利,我的儿子,是激励人民的心。总有一天,我的生命将抵达终点,而你,将加冕为王。

巫妖王的陨落预告片

巫妖王的陨落预告片中泰瑞纳斯的灵魂

The soul of Terenas Menethil II speaks to the Lich King in the trailer for patch 3.3: Fall of the Lich King. He warns the Lich King that the combined might of the Alliance, the Horde, the Argent Crusade and the Knights of the Ebon Blade have finally fought their way to Icecrown Citadel itself to defeat him once and for all.

Spirit of Terenas Menethil: Can you feel it, my son, closing in all around you? The Light's justice has been awakened. The sins of the past have finally caught up to you. You will be called to account for all the atrocities you've committed, the unspeakable horrors you've let loose upon this world, and the dark, ancient powers you've enslaved. Though my soul was one of the first to be devoured by your evil, there are thousands more bound within this blade, and they cry out for release. Look now to your defenses, my son, for the champions of justice gather at your gates!
The Lich King: Let them come. Frostmourne hungers.

平行时间线

A version of Terenas Menethil existed in a timeway where history turned out completely different and which was entered by Thrall during the Cataclysm era.[20]

推测

Questionmark-medium.png 以下为理论推测和演绎,不能被当做官方说明。

职业

A statue of Terenas, recovered in the Wetlands, depicted him as "a young, long-haired paladin with hammer upraised."[21][22] When the Horde attacked the Capital City, Terenas reluctantly picked up a fallen sword with which to defend himself, but he was "painfully aware that he was no fighter".[23] 模板:Ref WoWCV2 also clearly states that he was no warrior. He couldn't have trained as a paladin until after the Second War, and by then he was far from young. That statue may have been intended as a depiction of Arthas, or a heavily idealized version of Terenas.
