Alonsus Faol (originally "Farol") was the head of the Holy Order of Northshire Clerics prior to the First War. Following the terrible attrition suffered by the clerics during the war, as well as the destruction of Northshire Abbey, the aged Faol fled with the surviving citizens of the Kingdom of Azeroth to the Kingdom of Lordaeron.

Aided by his apprentice, Uther the Lightbringer, Faol refounded the Holy Order of Clerics as the Order of the Silver Hand, this time equipping the followers of the Light in the heavy armaments of war. Alonsus Chapel, in Stratholme, was the site where he anointed Uther as the first of the paladins within the Order.

Faol died of old age some time prior to the coming of the Scourge of Lordaeron and the Third War. His final resting place is presumed to be Faol's Rest, a small graveyard located within the Forsaken occupied lands of the Tirisfal Glades.

A statue and fountain in front of the Cathedral of Light in Stormwind City honors all the hard work done by Faol in the aftermath of the Second War, including the raising funds to help rebuild the city and reestablishing the Brotherhood of Northshire

Alonsus Faol was the first Archbishop in history not only retain his name, but to alter his surname as well.
