Danitha Capashen is a distant relative of Captain Gerrard Capashen, living in the modern era of Dominaria. She is the daughter of Aron Capashen, who is the head of the highest house of Benalia. She is a Benalish Knight with a warrior bearing, but a calm character. Her hair is pulled back and the sides are shaved to better fit under a helmet. Her face is tanned and weathered.



As leader of the Benalish army,[1] Danitha focused her efforts on defending Benalia from Josu Vess and the Cabal.[2]

In a battle with Josu at the Blighted Fields in Korlich Pass, Josu struck her with Whisper's blade. She and her brother Rafwyn Capashen both began to feel the effects of the Legacy Curse.[3][4] In her weakness, she was confined to the city, but continued to oversee military operations.[3] After the eventual defeat of Whisper and destruction of Josu, Raf was able to use Whisper's dagger to break the curse afflicting the Capashen bloodline.[5]


When Josu returned, Danitha focused once again on the Cabal. Jhoira requested she fill the empty shoes of Gerrard Capashen as part of the new Weatherlight crew, but she declined as it would require her to abandon her mission. Raff volunteered in her stead.[6]
