Ardell Magrave, son of Luther Magrave, is the current ranking officer of AESOP: the Alliance Emergency Support Operations group. He is the third to have earned that rank, following both his father and the gnome, Lokker. Under Ardell's guidance, AESOP has grown to be far more public, branching its operations outwards once more in support of the Alliance as a whole.
Ardell is originally from Gilneas. Having been bitten during the fall of the kingdom, Ardell was able to stabilize himself shortly after the Cataclysm, and has since established a notable life of duty and obligation. He would have it no other way, of course, for he feels the need to ensure the Alliance's protection and safety.
The worgen curse does still haunt him, however. Ardell dislikes the change, and has cultivated methods to try and keep himself calm, reverting back to his human form as often as possible. Only during the high stresses of combat does Ardell's more savage side show.
