The gloomy Fenris Keep used to be the home of Silverpine Forest's lordship, and housed numerous servants and several armed soldiers. The keep had strategic significance, and was home to a sizable portion of Lordaeron's military. The keep's main purpose was to keep Lordamere Lake safe, and also to let no threat come against Capital City from Lordamere Lake.
When the undead Scourge came to the land, however, the inhabitants were not expecting a betrayal from within. Thule Ravenclaw, an ambitious young mage, allied with the Scourge, and provided them with backing that proved catastrophic for the inhabitants of the keep. All were murdered or forced to flee. Thule commanded a large force of Rot Hide gnolls to do his bidding, which hungrily attacked anyone who neared the keep and their master.
Thule Ravenclaw and the Rothides were driven out of Fenris Keep. In their place, Hillsbrad Refugees from Southshore and Hillsbrad Fields have taken over the keep after surviving the Forsaken attacks on their towns. When agents of the Forsaken, along with Agatha, entered the keep to kill the human leaders, they were met with a surprise. The worgen leaders Darius Crowley, Ivar Bloodfang, and some of their forces were found inside trying to convince the humans to drink their blood in order to prevent the refugees from becoming part of the Forsaken. The humans decided on the lesser of the two evils and drank Darius' blood, becoming Hillsbrad Worgen.
