Taldarum was born to his mother Queen Lanathel who was silently building her command base by having many children which was extremely unusual for a Sindar Elf. As he grew he proved to be one of the most skilled beauracrats that she had in her children and thus while they were in Lorraine he was the one that ran the finances of the San'Layn and his skill allowed them to offset much of the popularity problems that they had in Athel Loren. When the San'Layn lost in the civil war Taldarum left Athel Loren with his mother and when they arrived in Icecrown he went about once again running the paperwork of the San'Layn. As the city of Caurtunia was constructed his mother decided to give him a more permanent position of power to work from and thus he was named the leader of the city. In his position he is the commander of the San'Layn city of Caurtunia, where he watches over and makes sure that the production is running well on the Saron produced there, but on top of this that the San'Layn are growing steadily in the city. Over his time in Caurtunia he has seen the population of the San'Layn increase nearly 150%, and has gained immense respect from his mother the Queen because of this work.
Taldarum was born during the initial meeting between illidan stormrage and his birth was calculated by danras lanathel in an attempt to force illidan to forget tyrande and simply pay complete attention to her. As he grew he proved to be one of the most skilled beauracrats that she had in her children and thus while they were in Lorraine he was the one that ran the finances of the San'Layn and his skill allowed them to offset much of the popularity problems that they had in Athel Loren.

This was meant to destroy us but I believe it shall be our salvation.
With the situation in the Kingdom of Lothlorian undergoing a dramatic growth there seemed nothing that could stop them from growing more and more. The threat from the Trollocs and Orcs were little due to the massive defences around the Gatekeeps, and the growing military. Quel'Thalas was too busy surviving against the Trollocs to actually put up any kind of threat to them so internal issues were the discussion of the day inside the Kingdom of Lothlorian. This would change in a moment with the arrival of Tenris Mirkblood of whome was one of the princes of the San'Layn. Tenris arrived in Athel Loren on the northern border and met with members of the silent remaining members of the San'Layn in Athel Loren. This group snuck him inside of the kingdom and past the runestones meant to protect the kingdom from such individuals. As he arrived in the western part of the forest he and his members would begin setting up the ritual that was meant to tear the forest apart from within. Tenris Mirkblood created a portal which he used to summon in the prepared armies of the San'Layn. The moment the portal was opened though the Lothlorians understood that something was wrong and they mobilized themselves to repel the invaders, and in these early moments the Lothlorians who were attacking without knowledge of the Tempest Keep found themselves with a great advantage. As the Lothlorians mobilized they discovered that they were facing a large threat when the San'Layn moved Tempest Keep through the portal. Tempest Keep was a truly massive floating fortress that was manned by hundreds of San'Layn and thousands of their undead solders as well.
Main Article : Tempest Keep
The Tempest Keep acted as a massive fortress which would block the relief forces from being able to attack Tenris Mirkblood and his attempts to destroy the Sunwell through the use of the spell. The Lothlorians attempted to attack Tempest Keep but discovered that the fortress was massively defended and had extreme firepower which could only be stopped by actually assualting the keep itself. The keep was defended on the ground by the massive army of the undead and since it was in floating in the air only an air assault could dislodge the fortress. As the spell reached its closing point the Magisters in the Sunwell begin to enact spells in an attempt to delay the spell being cast, and this caused a massive battle between the two forces with the San'Layn already so far ahead that they were pushing the Magisters massively in the wrong direction. As the Magi battle turned against them they discovered the water around the Sunwell litterly tearing itself apart with the power of the spell.
Assault on the Eye
With the spell nearing completion the Lothlorians launched a massive air assault led by Kael'Thalas, and many of his luitenants invading all across the Keep. As the assault continued the defenders of whome were mainly elite San'Layn defenders along with Prince Taldarum of whome defended the main theatre of the Tempest Keep in the Eye. As the defenders fell one by one to the attacking Lothlorians they discovered that the Lothlorians took control of the Mechanar one of the three platforms of the Tempest Keep. With control of the Mechanar they flooded attacks against the Eye where the Lothlorians were now in an all out attack on in an attempt to take it before the spell was completed. In the Eye Kael'Thalas battled Taldarum and after a tough battle he beat Taldarum but he was saved from death by Haernene Kellblood who whisked his broken body from the Eye surrendering Tempest Keep to the Lothlorians. With the fall of Tempest Keep the Lothlorian army proceeded to beat back the undead army defending Tenris and they entered the summoning area just as Tenris was nearing completeting.
Creation of Netherstorm
As the two forces battled to stop or allow Tenris to complete the spell the entire situation became too late when Tenris unleashed his Magi in the air and as the beam came back down and he prepared to push it towards the Sunwell Kael'Thalas unleashed a massive bolt of Magi at Tenris which caused the instant death of all of his companion summoners, and caused Tenris to fall to the ground and thereby the spell continued straight down and pushed straight into the ground causing a massive explosion. When the explosion cleared the San'Layn were gone as they had been taken away by the power of the spell as the portal to Icecrown had collapsed. The Lothlorians picked themselves up and surveyed the damage. A massive crater had been created throughout the west of Athel Loren from which the sky above was litterly a purple tinge from the power of the spell. Standing in the middle of the storm remained Tempest Keep of which pieces of the keep had fallen from the sky and were scattered throughout the land. With a massive portion of the forest now known as the Netherstorm the Lothlorian Elves realized that they had an external threat in the form of the San'Layn.
As the Lothlorian Elves surveyed the damage though they found the remains of two destoyed satelites from the Tempest Keep, and they had broken into pieces all across the Netherstorm, and out of the tears in the world itself had formed. Zerevor Sunsorrow and several other Magi were able to tap into these rifts and with hundreds of workers brought in from the capital they were able to seal them behind the remains of the satelites. As they continued to work they discovered that they could harnass some of the releasing energy into cubes of which contained pure pieces of the Fade, and the Magi itself. With this in mind Kael'Thalas would form the Order of the Netherstorm under the command of Zerevor Sunsorrow and they would be charge of creating these Magi cubes from the Mana forges set up throughout the Netherstorm.
