Admiral Tarlen Aubrey is a level 35 elite human quest giver found in Northwatch Hold in the Southern Barrens. He is located on a tower near the southern end of the Hold. He appears to be the leader of Northwatch Hold, having replaced Captain Fairmount. It is unknown what became of Fairmount following the Shattering.
Tides of War
Admiral Aubrey was present when the Horde attacked Northwatch Hold, but was badly injured and left for dead. He survived, though missing an eye, and eventually made his way to Theramore Isle. Though he fought bravely to defend against the Horde's attack, he was ultimately killed when Garrosh Hellscream used a mana bomb to destroy the city.
Upon request, the player can ask for a gryphon to take them to and from the ships off the coast.
