The Kirin Tor will tell you that mastering the magical arts is like learning the rules of a game. Fools. True power is taken by those brave enough to break boundaries. I am Medivh, the Last Guardian. If magic is a game, then it is one I play to win.Hearthstone, by Medivh
I exist to protect this realm, my Lord, it is my very purpose. I am the Guardian.Warcraft: The Beginning, by Medivh
Anduin Lothar: "Guardian, what is the Fel?"
Medivh: "A magic unlike any other. It feeds on life itself. It polutes the user, twisting everything it touches. It promises great power, but it exacts a terrible price."
Destiny is at hand, young sorceress. The time to choose has come. For the fate of all who live, humanity must join forces with the Horde.Medivh in Warcraft III, Reign of Chaos
Now go, young Thrall. Sail west to the lands of Kalimdor. It is there that you will find your destiny. It is there that your people's salvation will be assured.Medivh in Warcraft III, Reign of Chaos
Human? I left my humanity behind long ago.Medivh in Warcraft III, Reign of Chaos
The former can advise the latter, but the latter must be free to challenge the former, to avoid what happened.Medivh in Warcraft III
The roots will heal in time... as will the entire world. The sacrifices have been made. Just as the orcs, humans, and night elves discarded their old hatreds and stood united against a common foe, so did nature herself rise up to banish the Shadow forever. As for me, I came back to ensure that there would be a future, to teach the world that it no longer needed Guardians. The hope for future generations has always resided in mortal hands. And now that my task is done, I will take my place amongst the legends of the past.Medivh in Warcraft III, Reign of Chaos
