Lore[edit | edit source]

In World of Warcraft

Warcraft Wiki icon.pngThis section uses content from the Warcraft Wiki.
Lord Vincent Godfrey is a renegade nobleman from Gilneas who opposed his king,  Genn Greymane, after discovering that Genn and many of his people had been afflicted with the worgen curse. After committing suicide rather than acknowledge a worgen as his lord, Godfrey's body was recovered and reanimated by the Forsaken, but after turning on them as well, he fled into the abandoned ruins of Shadowfang Keep, where he and his followers remain.

In Hearthstone

Even while still among the living, Lord Godfrey had a penchant for cold-blooded self-interest and treachery: he devastated Lord  Darius Crowley by political maneuvering, probably instigating a rebellion in the process. Then, while Gilneas itself was under siege, he betrayed King Greymane. After Godfrey’s untimely demise, the Dark Lady Sylvanas resurrected him among her undead Forsaken, but expecting anything resembling loyalty from a creature like Godfrey is always a deadly mistake. He betrayed her as well, then fled to an abandoned keep to continue doing what he does best: pursuing his own interests.
Precisely what those interests might be remains a mystery, but it seems that Godfrey has chosen this moment to act. Since the curse descended on the Witchwood, he left the seclusion of the keep he’s haunted for years, and has recently been sighted near the city. It’s not clear what he’s planning—or what he hopes to gain—but devastation tends to follow whereever Godfrey treads.[1]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Lord Godfrey's flavor text is technically inaccurate in terms of lore, as Gilneas had not yet rejoined the Alliance at the time of his betrayal.
  • The artwork for this card comes from the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game "Shadowfang Keep" series, for the card Lord Godfrey. Note that Godfrey's sleeves are made intact and his rib cage edited out in this card's artwork, likely to conform to Chinese regulations against showing bones in video games.
