    It's very challenging to get a character's lore ingame and make us relevant.

    OT: I don't know if Wrathion will redeem the Black Dragonflight but I think he'll make them not "insane Old God serving Dragons"
    Blizzard do not destroy Jaina Proudmoore's character. Make her who she once was, not full of rage and vengeance.,If you are curious about me or about my writing aspirations, feel free to pst me. Paladin-Sorcerer at your service! http://us.battle.net/wow/en/characte...htsongg/simple

    Wrathion has forged his own path inspite of his father, not because of him. The concept of vicarious redemption is pure nonsense, Wrathion's deeds in no way redeem his fathers.
    But they do actually, just not directly. No matter what, he is still the son of Neltharion, and assuming they flesh him out even more and bring him into more of a good guy role, he will have undone what his father did. Depending on the magnitude of what he does in the future, that will be even moreso.

    If his true motives are protecting Azeroth, then he will have done what his father could not. Remember, Deathwing wasn't inherently evil, and thus in a way can't fully be blamed for the atrocities he committed.

    Either way, he is forging his own path in spite of his father, and in doing so will either redeem his father or continue his legacy, depending on where they take his character.

    No, they don't. The concept of vicarious redemption is ridiculous, the idea that if you murder a dozen people, that I can redeem you is just ridiculous. If Hitler's son cured cancer, ended world hunger, and personally apologized to every person even remotely affected by his father's actions would that make Hitler any less of a monster?
