Unlike the other races of the Horde, orcs are not native to Azeroth.
Initially, they lived as shamanic clans on the lush world of Draenor.
They abandoned their peaceful culture when Kil’jaeden, a demon lord
of the Burning Legion, corrupted the orcs and used them in his vengeful
plot against the draenei, who were exiles from Kil’jaeden’s homeworld.

Because of the demons’ manipulation, most of the orc chieftains drank
the blood of a Burning Legion pit lord, Mannoroth the Destructor. This
act infused the orcs with power, but at a great price: they were now
enslaved to the Legion. Constant exposure to fel energies turned the orcs
’ naturally brown skin to a sickly green, and the orcs’ usage of fel magic
caused their ancestral lands to wither and die.

As Kil’jaeden had planned, the orcs succeeded in killing most of the draenei
population. Now Kil’jaeden was ready to test the orcs’ effectiveness against
another old enemy. Thousands of years before, the demons had launched an
invasion of Azeroth that had ultimately failed, but this time the orcs could fight
in the Legion’s stead. To that end, the corrupted human archmage Medivh
contacted the orc warlock Gul’dan. Together they constructed the Dark Portal,
which allowed the orcs to travel to Azeroth.

After their arrival, the orcs crushed the unsuspecting human kingdom of Stormwind.
The mighty orc armies, known as the Horde, then pressed north through the Eastern
Kingdoms, and their victory was nearly assured for a time. Eventually, however,
internal conflicts resulted in the orcs’ defeat, and those who did not die in battle
were rounded up and placed in internment camps. But a young slave named Thrall
managed to escape from captivity and join a liberation force consisting of Warchief
Orgrim Doomhammer and other free orcs. When Doomhammer fell in combat, Thrall
became the new warchief of the Horde and the inheritor of Doomhammer’s namesake weapon.

Thrall and his people later journeyed across the sea to the distant continent of Kalimdor
. Within the forests of Ashenvale, the warchief and his mentor, Grommash Hellscream,
confronted Mannoroth. In the end, Grom gave his life to kill the pit lord and remove the
blood-curse from the orcs forever. A new chapter began for the orcs: war was no longer
the driving focus of their culture, and they settled the land along Kalimdor’s eastern
coastline, which Thrall named Durotar.

Years later, the warchief and many others returned to the remnants of Draenor, now known
as Outland, to prevent another attack from the Burning Legion. There Thrall met Garrosh,
son of Grom Hellscream, and convinced him to join the Horde and return to Azeroth as
an advisor. Garrosh was a leading commander during the battles against the Lich King
in Northrend, and also gained popularity for his fiery personality.

In addition to his commitments as leader of the Horde, Thrall was a dedicated shaman
with close ties to the elements. When he noticed severe disturbances in the elemental spirits,
Thrall knew that he had to step down as warchief in order to investigate the situation lest all
of Azeroth fall into chaos. Given his options, Thrall believed that Garrosh was the clear choice
for warchief. But the impulsive young Hellscream is much more aggressive than his diplomatic
predecessor. With the equally tempestuous King Varian Wrynn back on the throne of Stormwind, it seems likely that the orcs will need their famed strength now more than ever.

Home City:Orgrimmar

Named for the former Horde warchief Orgrim Doomhammer, this capital was rapidly
constructed when the orcs first settled in Durotar. Garrosh Hellscream has recently
rebuilt most of the city’s architecture, and now Orgrimmar’s fortresses rank among
the most imposing on Azeroth. Spiked metal towers line the city’s streets, and the
red-and-black banners of the Horde wave from every post. Most of the various races
have separated into their own districts, from the tauren in the Valley of Wisdom to
the trolls in the Valley of Spirits. Grommash Hold towers over all else, allowing
Garrosh Hellscream to keep a close watch on his people.

Leader:Garrosh Hellscream Warchief of the Horde

Garrosh grew up on Draenor in the shadow of his father, the great warrior Grommash Hellscream.
Chieftain of the Warsong clan, Grom was the first orc leader to drink the blood of Mannoroth,
subjugating the orcs to the Legion’s will. Before this event, Garrosh was among several orcs
who had become ill with the red pox. They had been quarantined far away in Nagrand, allowing
them to escape the demonic corruption. The younger Hellscream was ashamed of his father for
many years until he met Thrall and learned of Grom’s heroic redemption. Garrosh has since
embraced his potential as a strong leader, most notably in Northrend, where he directed the
Horde advance through the Borean Tundra and won the hearts of his people. Uncompromising
and fiercely proud, Hellscream intends to restore the orcs’ glory by any means necessary.
