Taylor is a human soldier who acts as a quest giver during the Cataclysm and Pandaria campaigns. He is first seen as a ship captain ("Captain Taylor") when the Alliance begins their push toward Vashj'ir. After being captured and freed from the Naga, he joins the player in several missions against them, mirroring Nazgrim for the Horde.
After the events of Vashj'ir, Taylor is promoted to Admiral and finds himself shipwrecked on Pandaria along with Anduin Wrynn. Taylor, along with his crew and the player, search for the lost prince during the Jade Forest storyline and recruit the Pearlfin Jinyu to the Alliance.
