The Sha'tari Skyguard, a group of Sha'tari flyers, have a base at Blackwind Landing, just outside of the Blackwind Valley where Skettis is located.
On an island in the middle of Blackwind Lake, Terokk awaits the proper alignment of the stars to herald his return...
Originally, the arakkoa worshipped the sun goddess Rukhmar, who created them.
Talon King Terokk, who was Ruhkmar's chosen, was believed to be the goddess himself and hence was highly revered by her followers, the Adherents.
He began to hate the world, abandoning Skettis and even sacrificing the lower castes of his own people to dark powers in search of a cure.
The arakkoa did not seem to know the reason for this abandonment and attributed it to them turning away from the worship of Rukhmar.
At Veil Rhaze, Terokk raises the spirits of the dead arakkoa killed in the Auchindoun explosion.
To aid in their battles, the Adherents searched for ancient Apexis technology, such as golems and turrets that fire beams of concentrated light to burn at Outcasts towns.
However, as the years went on Terokk's health declined, grief tore at his heart, and Sethe's curse chewed at his mind.
Their capital is the hidden city of Skettis, located in the southeastern corner of Terokkar Forest.
They have established various colonies across Terokkar Forest, known as veils: Veil Shienor and Veil Reskk in the north of Terokkar near the border with Hellfire Peninsula, and several along the Bone Wastes - Veil Skith, where the Darkstone of Terokk is located, Veil Rhaze, destroyed by the Auchindoun disaster, Veil Lithic, where the arakkoa corrupt avians into Terokk's service, and Veil Shalas, their greatest colony at the base of Skettis itself, where Terokk's sages wage war against the Light.
At some point during the war between the orcs and draenei, the arakkoa abandoned their deities - Rukhmar, Anzu, and Sethe - in favor of a Summoned Old God.
