NPC – Dalaran Sewer Rats and Turtles

This group of creatures is found in the Circle of Wills in the Sewers of Dalaran.  They are a clear reference to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  4 turtles who were disposed of in the sewers, mutated by radioactive waste, and trained by a rat who had learned martial arts from his former master, who was also exposed to radioactive waste, turned the animal into humanoids.  The turtles were named for renaissance artists – Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello and Raphael, and the rat was called Splinter.  A popular cartoon followed the comic and there is also a movie as well.
