The Argus Wake are a mysterious group of the Shadow Council allied with the Alterac Syndicate in the Alterac Mountains. Primarily, they are classified as a "sect" of the Syndicate (however having differing agendas and priorities at times) and mainly focus on teaching Shadow Magic. While Strahnbrad and Stromgarde Keep functioned as bases of operations, the Argus Magi have been seen within both spheres and witnessed as conducting their own activities outside the spheres.
