    Horde Geya’rah - Involve her in the future story

    So you guys probably know of Geya’rah. She is the Mag’har Orc leader. She is basically Thrall’s AU sister.

    From the very limited experience we have with her, she seems really cool as a character. She is honorable and powerful.

    We are kind of lacking on strong Orc characters lately and she is the perfect fit. Saurfang has been losing some face lately.

    Blizzard has mentioned they want Thrall back in the storyline, and Thrall connecting with Geya’rah, his “AU Sister”, would be really cool.

    What do you guys think? Will she become important in the future? Will she become a "Garrosh done right"? Or will she be hiding in Orgrimmar and forgotten about?

    Blizzard will either forget about her or off her out in the next self cannibalizing rebellion raid. That's how they do stuff.

    She’s going to be a secondary character at best.

    I hope not, they can forget this genderbend forced character for ever, there are enough normal orcs to be involved like thura saurfang and that orc commander in the invasion.

    Usha would be better off for an orc woman, she's a lot of fun, and while I'm not on the Jorin train the way other posters are, he'd be good to bring in as well. Geya'rah's just kind of bland, which is a shame, because the Mag'har have a lot going for them in terms of character potential. That said, there is some potential in seeing how Mag'har honor doesn't really intersect with Thrallist honor, given what they've been up to for ages now.

    She'll be forgotten if she isn't already, just like Wrathion, Thrall, every Pandaren, etc.

    I can only see her become relevant if there's some sort of Light & Shadow expansion, with her obviously being very anti Light.

    If you look at the current Allied Races leaders, most of them haven't played any meaningful role in this expansion: Mayla, Thalyssra, Fareeya, Turalyon, Moira, and so it shall be the same for Geya'rah.

    Ironically, Void Elves are the only exception. While the cunning Alleria hasn't received a lot of screentime after the Battle of Lordaeron, the enigmatic Magister Umbric has played a pivotal role in the Alliance War Campaign.
    The Void can be used to protect the world, not to destroy it. But as with any weapon or magic, one must learn to wield it correctly.

    Overlord Geya'rah feels like a character with a lot of potential that is currently being underutilized (if it can be said they're utilizing it at all). She may be intended for another story altogether, though; and outside bringing the Mag'har into the Horde fold this just isn't her moment in the proverbial spotlight.

    She's a female Thrall. Which is only marginally better, especially considering she was the right hand of Grom "Draenor is free!" Hellscream.

    Woman? Check.
    Strong? Check.
    Brown? Check.

    Expect her any time blizz will feel like collecting some woke points, lol.

    I mean now we got talanji, queen of waka... I mean zandalar. Can't blow it out all at once now, can they?

    Here's one: We kill her off-screen, so that the spotlight can be shifted towards an Orc that isn't an AU abomination.

    Only if Chris Metzen takes over voicing her.

    I'm hoping she meets Thrall and maybe she find her standings as something more.

    She's neither. She's a different individual from a different world with a different history altogether. She's the daughter of a Durotan and Draka who never came to Azeroth and never experienced the events of the formation of the Old Horde. Her world is undergoing some form of breakdown due to an unspecified cataclysm, and embroiled with a religious war with Draenei zealots. Her history, personality, and ultimate trajectory are determined by events that neither our Grom, Garrosh, Durotan, or Thrall ever experienced.

    She’s pretty dull. I feel her being Thrall’s AU self is more a disservice to her character than a benefit.

    I wanna see more Usha.

    They should just kill old Thrall and MU Velen and replace both with this good garrosh Thrall rule 63 Geya chick and full holy Nazi Y'rel.

    That would be awesome, plus gurl power.
    Ah, you think there is bias for ally? You merely adopted the faction bias. I was born in it, molded by it. I didn't see alliance have a nice thing until I was already a man, by then it was nothing to me but bullshit!

    How about we get a less dull leader to represent the Mag'har, maybe someone interested in machinery, considering they did bring their iron horde stuff from Draenor.

    I'm not opposed to her having a more prominent role in the future. Her being an AU Thrall doesn't automatically make her a bad character. Warlords of Draenor wasn't bad because it was an alternate universe. In concept it was exciting, it's how they executed the whole thing that became a mixed bag of bad story-telling and missed opportunities. If they build her up properly, they can do anything they want with her short of turning her into a female version of Garrosh as he was at the end. Sylvanas set the bar pretty low for female Horde Warchiefs so I could see her become Warchief in the future as long as they portray her closer to how Garrosh was in Wrath. I don't care who's what gender and alternate universe or not, I just want a good story that makes sense and logical characterization.
