I admit, among the first elements I decided on with the characterization of Edwin VanCleef was this particular exchange – the line “I’m the hero in this drama!” was among the first I decided on for him; it just felt like it captured the very essence of how I wanted to portray him. The arrogance, the self-righteousness.. the delusion.. while the WarCraft setting have many vast and epic enemies like the Burning Legion, the Old Gods, Deathwing or whatnot.. most of them are ultimately self-admittedly dedicated to evil, proudly proclaiming how they’ll turn the world to ash for kicks and giggles. With Edwin VanCleef.. we have a villain who is as mortal and flawed as the rest of us, and who not only once did the right thing, but remains convinced he still is.
