behavior, however, responds to some three decades of being a constant target of attacks from right-wing media and politicians in response to her lack of conformity to traditional female roles. Sylvanas, the ruler of the beleaguered Forsaken, also tends to be guarded, secretive, and operate β€œin the shadows”, unwilling to trust due to her history of trauma. This contrast between the cool, ironic self-possessed persona of Sylvanas and the brutal directness and violence of Garrosh parallels the respective ethos of Clinton and Trump seen in the 2016 U.S. Presidential debates. In the 2010 Cataclysm expansion of WoW, Sylvanas summons Garrosh to Silverpine to inform him of how female undead val’kyr can ensure the racial future of the Forsaken. When Garrosh arrives, Sylvanas enthusiastically announces her discovery, a solution to the problem to which she has dedicated her unlife, the survival and freedom of the Forsaken. The following dialogue ensues in a cut scene (short video embedded in the game): Lady Sylvanas Windrunner: I have solved the plight of the Forsaken! As a race, we Forsaken are unable to procreate. With the aid of the val’kyr, we are now able to take the corpses of the fallen and create new Forsaken. ... Garrosh Hellscream: What you have done here, Sylvanas ... it goes against the laws of nature. Disgusting is the only word I have to describe it. Lady Sylvanas Windrunner: Warchief, without these new Forsaken my people would die out ... Our hold upon Gilneas and northern Lordaeron would crumble.
