History

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

Early life

Fendrig became a grand miner of the Explorers' League. He would mine all across the planet and earn the title of Hand of Khaz. He has mined the depths of Uldaman, the Borean Tundra, Bael Modan, and many other dangerous locations.[1]

Cataclysm

After his time in Northrend, Fendrig along with twelve other miners were tasked with investing the trogg infestation from the Coldridge Pass. However a quake would trap Fendrig under the rubble and when they others tried to rescue him the pass itself would collapse and kill the other miners. The sole survivor was Fendrig and after he was rescued, he no longer desired into venture the mines ever again.[2]

The Jade Hunters

After spending his time telling his past exploits as stories Fendrig would be called by the Council of Three Hammers and teamed up with Fenella Darkvire and Carrick Irongrin in order to help rebuild the Jade Serpent statue. Accepting the task Fendrig would later find himself participating in the jade hunt called by Foreman Raiki since, there was a lack of jade to help rebuild the statue.

During this jade hunt the three dwarves would be tricked by Fei into going into the same mine, a fact that pleased none of them. As the three ventured deeper into the cave Carrick would decide to strike the Mogu statue that blocked their way, though Carrick would soon break it and leave the path way open. Fendrig would soon become trapped alone, which caused him have a flashback of the Coldridge pass accident and to his shock he was greeted by the ghost of the miners. However rather than smiting him, like he thought they would, they instead implored him to keep on living. This gave Fendrig the strength to rise back up and open the next door.

The three dwarves would find a cave full of gems and when Fenella ordered her pet golem, Koveth, to dig it caused the ceiling to fall down. When running for the exit he and Carrick would be forced to fight off spiders until Fenella rescued and then sacrificed Koveth to give them enough time to escape. While looking around the room they ran into, they found a great amount of Jade and the Scrolls of the Celestials. Reading the scrolls gave the three dwarves insight which allowed them to realize they could still do great thing, even after they believed that they couldn't.

As such when the three left the cave as friends, their prior animosity forgotten, and brought forth the jade they found to the Foreman. Uncaring that they contest was over the three decided to thank Fei for getting them together, only to be shocked when she ran away. After chasing her to a hill Fei then turned into the Jade Serpent and flew into the sky, leaving the dwarves speechless.[3]
