My personal characters are going to be quite different from one another but they ARE members of the Alliance. My monk will be a meditative thinker spending most of his time travelling around finding new brews, since he's a brewmaster. My Draenei Paladin, no matter what spec, will basically be a simple soldier tending wounds or protecting people in skirmishes.
My main, the Worgen, will indeed be involved in the Gilnean Liberation Front but I don't want to be completely tied to it. I'm certain Wrynn has use of such ferocious soldiers and militiamen in the greater scheme of things. And as for my primary alt, the Night Elf druid, he will be more of a councilor and journeyman than a soldier. For him and my other 2 alts, it's more about the RP
I am easily inspired by such things as Underworld: Rise of the Lycans, my love of nature elves (silly I know
), the wandering martial artist/monk, and the Draenei is just because I love their lore.
