Yalira Lakestrider grew up at a ranger’s cottage close to the boarder to Lordaeron with her father and his lynx, Leandra. They seldom had visitors and all of Yalira’s playmates were animals. The cottage was close to a lake and Yalira’s father always said she was as beautiful as the swans living there and called her his “little swan”.

When the third war came to Quel’Thalas Swan’s father was sent to fight for the ranger general and left Leandra to watch over his child. Before he was able to return the undead had found the cottage and Swan and Leandra had to flee. They decided to head to the city of Silvermoon, but as they did not know the way to it and they were trying to avoid the undead as they travelled the journey took more time than normally expected. It was during this time that Swan found a murloc egg that hadn’t been discovered by undeads who raided the murloc village. Swan decided to call the bady Lucky and raised him as her own.

When they finally got to Silvermoon Swan felt very lost, this was the first time she visited a city, she hadn’t even visited a village before. When the initial confusion had settled down Swan signed up for archery training with the rangers and started her adventure to see the world and save Quel’Thalas from destruction.

Swan continued her struggle to become a ranger until she was sent to Outland. During her first travel in the Promised Land Swan was ambushed by a swarm of ravagers. Fighting them of as well as she could she realized that they were too many for her. She can’t really remember what happened next, but when she woke up she found herself at a blood elven mansion back in Eversong woods. Apparently she had been saved by a man claiming to be the right hand of her grandfather, Lord Orchid. This man told her that he had been looking for her for a long time and that she was the rightful heir of the noble house.
