Dame Ariana Goodlaw was a knight of the Scarlet Crusade active at the height of the Scarlets' power in Lordaeron.


Born in the small town of Corin's Crossing in the Eastweald, Ariana became part of the Knights of the Silver Hand a few years after the end of the Second War. During the Third War, she witnessed the disbanding of the Silver Hand by Prince Arthas Menethil just prior to the Culling of Stratholme. Unlike several of her fellow knights, she stayed behind with the Prince's forces, fully believing that the infected were too far gone and had to be purged for the good of the many.

However, she did not follow the First Legion to Northrend, instead continuing the battle against the remaining undead and cultists remaining in Lordaeron. When King Terenas Menethil II was killed by his returning son, now corrupted into the Lich King's service, she rallied to the forced of the Alliance Remnants led by Grand Marshal Othmar Garithos and fought under his command as they pushed the Scourge from Dalaran back to the Plaguelands before coming under the control of the Dreadlord Detheroc. During her service in Garithos' forces she would witness the beginning of Prince Kael'thas Sunstrider's nascent alliance with the Naga as well as the betrayal of Lady Sylvanas Windrunner after the battle at Capital City, the latter of which she miraculously survived, unlike most of her comrades and Grand Marshal Garithos. Through a stroke of luck, she was found and taken back to the Solliden Farmstead where she was nursed back to health.

When Farmer Solliden and his farmhands allied with the nascent Scarlet Crusade, Ariana pledged herself to their cause, determined to destroy the undead that took everything and everyone from her, as well as the Forsaken that betrayed humanity as they were on the verge of retaking their home.
