As a child, Thrall served the cruel Aedelas Blackmoore as a slave. After gaining his freedom, he guided the liberated orcs to a land of their own, and worked to recover their ancient traditions. Now and forever he is the Warchief of the Horde.
The former slave known as Thrall brought unity to the Horde, turning ravagers into architects and securing a future for his people. "Thrall" was the moniker bestowed on the young orc Go'el in his first home -- an internment camp created to keep the orc prisoners of the Second War from ever threatening Azeroth again -- and the name could not be less fitting.
When Go'el escaped his prison, he traveled in search of not just aimless freedom but his roots, eventually finding wisdom in the shamanic beliefs of his ancestors.
Thrall's shamanism guided his actions as he re-formed the Horde, becoming its warchief and leading his people to settle in an arid land that he called Durotar, in honor of his father, Durotan.
Thrall led the Horde through a seemingly unceasing series of trials: the lifting of the demonic blood-curse that had tainted the orcs, a Burning Legion attack on Mount Hyjal, and the fall of the dreaded Lich King. When Deathwing returned and shattered the world, Thrall stepped down from his role as the Horde's warchief, instead joining the Earthen Ring, a powerful shamanic group, in an attempt to put the elements to rest and stop the Destroyer.
Thrall chose Garrosh Hellscream as his successor, and that decision haunted him as the ruthlessness of the new warchief brought the Horde to the point of insurrection. Garrosh’s defeat, the birth of Thrall’s son, and the emergence of a new warchief seem to have had a rejuvenating effect. Whole once more, Thrall now readies himself to combat a truly personal threat to all Azeroth, as a savage reflection of his people roars forth from a universe beyond.
The following video shows the voiceover quotes Thrall says when you click him many times.
