Notable characters


From his throne in the Valley of Wisdom, Warchief Thrall ruled with the support of the elder far seer Zor Lonetree and the Darkspear hero Vol'jin. Together they formed a wise and noble leadership, capable of guiding the Horde in conflicts with opposing factions such as the Alliance, Scourge, and Burning Legion. While regarding the latter two as nothing but vile enemies, which they are, Thrall was attempting to repair the Horde's relationship with the Alliance. However, animosity between these factions remained during his rule, and have now spilled over. The continued aggression of the Kul'Tirasforces from their base in Tiragarde, combined with several incidents on Azeroth's northernmost continent, have clearly indicated not everyone was keen on pursuing peace.


Prior to his fall from grace and subsequent imprisonment, Garrosh Hellscream ruled in Thrall's stead, intent on showcasing the might of the Horde. His attitude distanced some heroes of the Horde from him that were more intent on peace, chief among them Vol'jin. Garrosh, increasingly mad with power, expelled non-orcs from the city and fortified Orgrimmar. In addition, his loyal troops, now fashioned the True Horde, had been waging war on Pandaria against the Alliance. Vol'jin, with the aid of several other Horde leaders as well as support from the Alliance, began to fight back and started an uprising called the Darkspear Rebellion against the dictator Garrosh. As his "True Horde" began to fight against the Darkspear Rebellion and the Alliance, Garrosh recovered the Heart of Y'Shaarj and brought it back to Orgrimmar. Eventually, the city came under siege as the Horde and Alliance attacked. Garrosh's loyal belligerents, the Kor'kron Guard under Malkorok, defended Orgrimmar while Garrosh was seeking to unleash the power of Y'Shaarj. However, Garrosh was defeated and made to stand trial in Pandaria for his atrocities and crimes. Thrall then appointed Vol'jin as the new Warchief of the Horde in the presence of all the other Horde leaders. Vol'jin was approached by King Varian Wrynn and they agreed to end the war between the Alliance and the Horde. With Vol'jin as the new head of state for the Horde, it can be assumed that the prior non-orc residents of Orgrimmar began to return and rebuild.
