Alexstrasza the Life-Binder, Aspect of the red dragonflight, is the guardian of all life in the world of Azeroth. She was one of five great dragons chosen by the titans to be empowered with a portion of the Pantheon’s power and rule over her flight while they watched over Azeroth and its inhabitants. The titans also appointed her queen of all dragons.
Today, Alexstrasza resides at the top of the Wyrmrest Temple in the Dragonblight, a place considered a holy ground for the dragonflights. No longer content to simply watch over the mortal races, the Dragonqueen took action in bringing the dragonflights together to battle the then-hostile blue dragonflight and its Aspect, Malygos, as well as the looming threat of the Lich King.
With the rise of Deathwing during World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, Alexstrasza took a very active role in defending Azeroth against the Aspect of Death, eventually ordering her entire dragonflight to war against the black dragonflight. Alexstrasza, along with her fellow Aspects, gave their all to stop Deathwing once and for all, but lost much of their power in the process.
She has now passed on her legacy to the mortals of the world. Her humanoid form is that of a high elf.

Alexstrasza returned to the dragons’ homeland, the Dragon Isles.
Despite their disagreements in the past, Alexstrasza offered guidance to Wrathion, as he too returned to the Isles.

Compassionate and wise, Alexstrasza treasures life in all its forms. She firmly believes that few beings are truly evil and that even they are not necessarily beyond redemption, for change and growth is inherent in life. It can seek the light or the darkness, and it is only when it chooses the darkness so completely that life itself is endangered that there is no hope (as was the case with Malygos and Deathwing). The Life-Binder has always behaved with dignity, courage, grace, and compassion, even in the face of inconceivable horrors and deep personal loss. She is known to be a kind and patient mentor. Under her tutelage, only the most dedicated pupils acquire the title of “Life-Binder’s Handmaiden”.
She prefers peace and solitude, although she will defend her lands with all her power against any who threaten them without due cause. She often uses her shapechange power to appear as a creature of nature, in order to see what encroaching mortals will do before revealing her presence. Alexstrasza is devoted to all forests, and to a lesser extent all other types of green and fertile growing things. She considers all natural woodlands her home, and she need fear no beast within such lands. Although many of Azeroth’s natural creatures revere the Great Red Leviathan, she is not a goddess and does not pretend to be otherwise. Alexstrasza is rarely venerated by any particular group, although some elven communities pay her homage. Druids of the wild, in particular, appreciate her serene presence, considering her second in importance only to Ysera.
In her humanoid guise, Alexstrasza appears as a high elf with brownish red skin, intricate horns, and a mane of fiery hair that has licks of flame constantly escaping from it. Only her eyes remain unchanged from her dragon form. Her face appears rounder than any night elf’s, almost as if mixed with human traits. In this guise, the Life-Binder doesn’t usually display much modesty in her choice of clothing, most often being dressed as a warrior maiden with intricate, colorful armor and a cloak resembling a membranous wing. However, during the trial of Garrosh Hellscream, she instead wore a red-gold gown that covered her from neck to toe, leaving only her throat and arms bare.
The dragon-queen possess magics over all life. In the past, she has used great fire used to incinerate undead and rebirth fresh new life in their place. Cleansing the body in favor life anew is well within Alexstrasza’s grasp; however, removing the Plague of Undeath without affecting the body is beyond the scope of the powers that she controls. Among Alexstrasza’s abilities, she can regrow forests and heal the land. She can animate the dead and resurrect as evidenced with Bolvar Fordragon.
In Blackwing Lair, Vaelastrasz calls upon the power of Alexstrasza to aid the raid group in defeating his corrupted form. The raid is then given a buff called Essence of the Red, which essentially grants infinite mana, rage, runic power, and energy for 3 minutes.
Her breath causes flowers to grow, seen at Angrathar the Wrathgate and in [25-30] Hope Yet Remains. Other powers in Heroes of the Storm include turning an archer’s arrows into a blossoming tree branch. The intense thickness of her scales causes ordinary arrows to bounce off, and she is rather agile in humanoid form, able to do an impressive backflip with ease.
