I've had this big guy in my arsenal for almost a year and never was quite satisfied or done with his looks, until the PoF expansion came out. I wouldn't say I had a vision or anything, but I immediately knew I'd change Themba's spec to Scourge, and the armor kind of just grew on him, and I must admit, I like it!
I never planned out a big story or such for Themba, aside from me and my friend shipping him with my friend's Chronomancer salad. Though I always thought him as really gentle and warm person, despite his intimidating and stoick outside.
