The Grand Alliance Army was first formed under the banners of the Alliance of Lordaeron as a means to combat the oncoming tides of the Orcish Horde. In this Alliance, Alterac, ruled by a man who would betray those he swore his loyalty to, and shock the generals of the armies of his homeland. One man in particular, General Hath, saw the treachery of the Alteraci king and offered to allow the Alliance of Lordaeron to have vengeance against the traitor king.
Now, the Icewing Brigade takes the place of the Alterac Army of old, and without a Kingdom to serve, the armies of Alterac serve as a paramilitary force only sanctioned by the citizens of Alterac for their protection and well being. With the Brigade having endured through the hardships of the Alterac Mountains from their inception as the Snowcap Brigade, and later the Icewing Legion — the Brigade has gained its stride and noteriety from exemplary service to the people of Talongrab in the name of the Alliance.
As protectors of the people of Talongrab, and those who venture so far out to forge a new life for themselves, the Brigade offers its prowess to ensure the people of Talongrab are safe while the Citrine Eagle is away, and help to better protect the order while it is within its walls.
