Lore[edit | edit source]

"Until then, they frighten each other with stories of our leader, saying things such as, “Hey, watch yer back, or White Eyes’ll jump outta da shadows and getcha” with that ridiculous accent. Nonetheless, the rumors surrounding White Eyes are surprisingly close to the truth. He is a powerful warrior—we know him to be as immovable as a mountain and as pitiless as a storm—but the taletellers are missing one important detail. A secret most of our family does not even know. He is not the leader of the Jade Lotus. He’s merely a figurehead, and the real power behind the Jade Lotus comes in a smaller—though no less dangerous—form. . . ."[1]

White Eyes is unique to Hearthstone. An enormous pandaren, he is the sworn bodyguard of  Aya Blackpaw, the true leader of the Jade Lotus, who issues commands to the rest of the organization through her loyal servant.[1] In addition to being as immovable as a mountain and as pitiless as a storm, White Eyes is also "as swift as lightning". His shoulderpad is an ancient and extremely heavy pandaren bell, while his gauntlets are made from empty brewmaster kegs, thus demonstrating his immense size and strength.[2]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • White Eyes' flavor text is a reference to Blizzard's StarCraft franchise and the protoss battle cry "My life for Aiur!"
  • It is possible that White Eyes and the Storm Guardian are a reference to Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow from the G.I. Joe franchise, as White Eyes' clothing is similar to Snake Eyes' trademark black palette, while as the Storm Guardian he wears Storm Shadow's trademark white palette.
  • This card's deathrattle is like the Prime cards from the Ashes of Outland set, predating this mechanic by over 4 years.
