The Dragonflayer clan[1] is a vrykul clan under the control of the slumbering King Ymiron. They have taken up residence in Utgarde Keep, on the shores of Lake Cauldros, within the Howling Fjord of Northrend. Ingvar the Plunderer commands the clan's dragon-riders in their attacks against the town of Valgarde.

Involvement

Attacks on Alliance Settlements

They began attacking Valgarde, the primary Alliance forteress in eastern Northrend.[2] They captured a number of Alliance soldiers and either left them impaled [3] or imprisoned in Wyrmskull Village.[4]

They were also making plans to attack Westguard Keep; the details of the plans were in the hands of Yanis the Mystic. However, he was killed and the  [Dragonflayer Battle Plans] were retrieved.[5]

Into the Utgarde Catacombs

Some Dragonflayer pitted their prisoners against powerful vyrkul gladiators, then threw out their corpses for a necromancer to raise as ghouls when they lost.[6]An Alliance force entered the Utgarde Catacombs where this was taking place, freeing the prisoners and defying the vrykul champions in Ring of Judgement. They also took the  [Ancient Cipher].[7]

Ember Clutch

Yet another faction of the clan led by Skeld Drakeson travelled to the Ember clutch to breed Proto-Whelps and Red Proto-Drakes. The Ember Clutch Ancient charged an adventurer with driving them out.[8]

Gjalerborn

Queen Angerboda was found by the Forsaken to be awakening her husband King Ymiron. She was killed before she could finish the task and the Lich King spirited the still-dormant king away to Utgarde Pinnacle, promising that if her killers were foolish enough to follow him there, he would have the chance to avenge his wife.[9]

Plague of Halgrind

The Royal Apothecary Society designed a new Forsaken Blight, capable of killing all life in Halgrind. Thorvald, the chieftain of the town, fled when the Forsaken took the city. The remaining vrykul, while not dropping dead from exposure, found themselves trapped and slowly killed. He was killed later for his blood.[10]

Utgarde Keep instances

Adventurers ventured into the halls of Utgarde Keep and its pinnacle to permanently remove the threat posed by the Dragonflayer. Despite fighting alongside a few members of the Ymirjar, the elite army of vrykul loyal to the Lich King, they were almost entirely wiped out. In the end, even their king, Ymiron, would fall at the invaders' hands.
