History

The Shattering: Prelude to Cataclysm

WoW-novel-logo-16x62.png This section concerns content exclusive to the Warcraft novels or short stories.

Shortly before the Cataclysm, Thrall journeyed to Garadar to discover why the elements of Azeroth were so afraid. When he arrived, Greatmother Geyah advised him to turn to the Mag'har Aggra, who told him that he had toed the line between being a leader and a shaman long enough and that he would have to give up his leadership to truly become a shaman. Aggra was Thrall´s guide during a vision quest. Despite their rough beginnings, Thrall and Aggra grew closer to one another as he became truly connected with the spirits and became a proper shaman. Before returning to Azeroth Thrall and Aggra became mates.

When Thrall and Aggra returned to Azeroth, they participated in the funeral of Cairne Bloodhoof. The next day, she noticed that Thrall no longer wore the armor of Doomhammer and she was satisfied. Both left Thunder Bluff and Mulgore and went to the goblin port town Ratchet, where Gazlowe welcomed them and prepared a ship to the Maelstrom. The ship was called Draka's Fury in honor of all orcish women. Aggra was emotional and together with Thrall and a crew boarded the ship and left Kalimdor to the Maelstrom. However their journey would not be smooth as they had intended.[5]

Cataclysm

While en route to the Maelstrom Draka's Fury was attacked by Alliance forces and Thrall referred to as their "precious cargo" was lost. While Aggra commanded the shipwrecked crew of Draka's Fury on the Lost Isles she gained unexpected allies to the fight against Alliance. The Goblins of the Bilgewater Cartel, who were also attacked by the Alliance, and the Horde aided one in another in combating the denizens of the Isles and the Alliance forces who had captured Thrall. After all Thrall was freed and the Goblin's joining the Horde, Aggra and Thrall successfully made it to the Maelstrom. She later appears at the Maelstrom (affiliated with the Earthen Ring) and sends adventurers into Deepholm.

During the battle with Deathwing in the nightmare caused by Iso'rath, Aggra tries to fight with Deathwing, though the Aspect ultimately kills her.

Thrall: Twilight of the Aspects

WoW-novel-logo-16x62.png This section concerns content exclusive to the Warcraft novels or short stories.

When found himself unable to completely focus in healing the Maelstrom, Aggra tried to get him touch with the Spirit of Life. When Thrall was asked by the Green Dragonflight for aid, Aggra encouraged him to go, even though felt that he belonged at the Maelstrom. While not physically with him, there thought of Aggra was enough to encourage Thrall to never give up during his quest. When Thrall returned to Maelstrom he told Aggra everything that had occurred and was prepared to rescue Azeroth with her as Go’el.

Rage of the Firelands

Cataclysm This section concerns content exclusive to Cataclysm.

At the Maelstrom, Thrall strains himself attempting to commune with the elements. Able to feel how broken the world is, and with the elements remaining silent for him, Thrall tells Aggra that he will have to work without limits to fulfill this task and she leaves him.

After the Guardians of Hyjal and adventurers thwart the invasion of Hyjal by the Twilight's Hammer and Ragnaros, a meeting was convened at the ancient Word Tree of Nordrassil. Thrall and Aggra were among the gathered heroes at the meeting that ended in tragedy when a incredibly powerful agent of the Twilight Hammer interrupted the ceremony and struck down Thrall with dark magic, casting his spirit into the four domains of the Elemental Plane. While the Aspects conceded that Thrall may be lost to the elements forever, Aggra believed that her mate could be saved, and called on the aid of adventurers of both the Horde and the Alliance to venture into the Skywall, the Abyssal Maw, Deepholm, and Firelands to rescue her beloved from an eternity of torment. Before adventurers can return Thrall's spirit to the natural world, they must help him overcome his doubts, his willfulness, his desires, and his rage before he is bound to his elemental cage.[6]

Thanks to the efforts of Aggra and adventurers, Thrall is restored. Soon afterwords she and Thrall marry with notable figures in attendance.

Aggra learned about the fall of Theramore and understood Thrall's pain. When Thrall received a vision of an unknown figure going to use enslaved water elements to destroy Orgrimmar Aggra wished to accompany him. Though she was convinced that since Thrall received the vision alone, then he must go alone. While resigned to this, she understood and wished him luck.[8]

At some point she and Thrall journeyed to The Den in Durotar and while caring for the infant Durak, Thrall was approached by Horde heroes. After learning that Vol'jin was hurt and that the Darkspear may be trouble, Thrall left to help the trolls on the Echo Isles. Aggra wished him good luck as she cared for their son.[9]

Aggra with Durak accompanied Go'el to the trial of Garrosh Hellscream. She is said to be pregnant again. She was wary of Tyrande's first witness being Velen and grew outraged when she prevented Velen from speaking his heart. When the Dragonmaw attacked to ensure Hellscream's freedom a group of their pirate allies attacked her. In response Aggra slew them effortlessly, while protecting her son and reunited with her mate afterwards. She then went to heal Jaina Proudmoore.[10]

Discussion at the Throne of the Elements

Aggra at the Throne of the Elements.

During the third phase of the Elemental Unrest world event, she could be found talking with Thrall and Gavan Grayfeather at the Throne of the Elements.

Thrall says: Would I be here if this were not serious?
Aggra says: I have heard you before. You are here to save your world; to learn from ours. Greatmother Geyah has charged me with instructing you, and as such, you will listen to me, Go'el.
Thrall says: I have told you to call me Thrall.
Aggra says: Yes I know, Go'el. Thrall is the leader of the Horde, but you are not here in that capacity. Look at you: At what you are wearing...
(Thrall is wearing, of course, Doomhammer’s Plate.)
Aggra says: You say you have come to seek knowledge and understanding, but you are dressed for battle. That is why I question you and your willingness to do what must be done.
Thrall says: My clothing?! Is that what this has come to now? We debate the merits of my clothing?
Gavan Grayfeather says: The clothing is merely a manifestation of a larger problem. I've no doubt that you are here to learn, but you must commit yourself both in spirit and in form.
Aggra says: The dwarf speaks the truth. If you wish to commune with the elements you must do so from the heart.
Aggra says: Your heart, your love for your land and your people is what has led you here. It was neither your armor nor your weapons.
Gavan Grayfeather says: Thrall, you must fully devote yourself to the cause.
Aggra shoots Gavan a disapproving look.
Aggra says: Go'el. You cannot continue to ride the line between Warchief and Shaman. The time will come when you must commit to one side fully. That time is fast approaching.
Thrall says: I hear what both of you are saying and am grateful for the counsel.
Thrall says: If I am to understand all that is transpiring, if I am to make a difference, then my devotion must be absolute. I must submit.

Flying into Deepholm

Aggra at the Maelstrom.

Aggra says: I hope you have a strong stomach. Traveling through the breach is not for the weak.
Aggra says: We've at the center of the Maelstrom, the rift between Deepholm and our world. Watch as it threatens to tear our world apart!
Aggra says: Let us hope Thrall and the others can contain it while you're inside.
Aggra yells: This is it! Brace yourself!
Aggra says: You made it! Good!
Aggra says: This is the Temple of Earth. It's the most important structure in Deepholm.
Aggra says: There was once a Titan-made stone inside. it was know as the World Pillar. The name was literal. It bore the weight of all the elemental and magnetic forces in Deepholm.
Aggra says: It was Shattered when Deathwing broke through the dome above and created the rift between the two worlds. All of Deepholm is going to collapse into Azeroth if we do not put the World Pillar back together.
Aggra says: The first fragment was going to be delivered to us by a Horde gunship know as the Storm's Fury. It never made it here.
Aggra says: We've taken control of the temple and we're containing as much of the damage as we can. Go inside and speak to Maruut; he's in charge.
Aggra says: We are all counting on you.
