Battle Pets – Shademaster Kiryn’s Nairn, Stormoen and Summer

Shademaster Kiryn is one of the NPCs you have to beat in the Celestial Tournament.  Her pets are named after characters in George R.R. Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire series (Game of Thrones).

Nairn is the humanoid yeti and is named for Kristian Nairn who plays Hodor in the series.  A resemblance do you think?

Stormoen the Fluxfire Feline is named after the actor Jake Stormoen, a friend of Kristian Nairn.  Apparently they both visited Blizzard and they both play WoW!

Summer the Wolf (beast) is the name of Bran Stark’s Dire wolf in the series.

  1. HODOR! I love these subtle little things they add into the WoW universe. They seem to always be able to manage to do it in a manner that doesn´t immediately give it away. I would have never guessed this part about the NPC in the Celestial Tournament, for example. Perhaps I should re-sub again soon. They sell 30 day game time cards here: http://bit.ly/1phlmVN
