- "A clan is bound by iron, not blood."
Though his father pressed ideals of family and tradition on him, Fenris believed that his destiny was greater. When their home came under threat from the gronn, giant beasts that could be brought down only through a coordinated effort, Fenris defied his father's wishes and hunted with the neighboring Thunderlord clan. Fenris was victorious and continued to hunt with the Thunderlords as well as with the Frostwolves. He joined the group of , his future mate. During a Kosh'harg festival, Garad declared in front of everyone that his son's pursuit of fame was hollow and without honor. Fenris then challenged Garad to a mak'gora and was defeated but not killed. Humiliated, Fenris left his native Frostwolf clan and joined the Thunderlords. There, his skill and intensity gained him notoriety, regardless of blood ties. He discarded the name Fenris Wolfbrother and embraced the nickname he earned from his daring exploits: the Iron Wolf.
For years, Fenris ascended through the ranks of the Thunderlord clan, eventually becoming its chieftain. Then the legendary chieftain formed the Iron Horde, an army of orcs forged for one purpose: to conquer all of Draenor. The multitude represented the strength of diversity that Fenris admired and yearned for. Though composed of different clans, the Iron Horde worked for the glory of all. With the soul of the orc race at stake, Fenris looks to coerce the stubborn Frostwolf holdouts to join the Iron Horde... even if it means destroying everything his father taught him to cherish.

After he killed his father, Ga'nar was left for dead and later captured. Fenris's youngest brother, Durotan, became the new chieftain of the Frostwolf clan.
Under his leadership, the Thunderlord clan leads attacks on the Frostwolf orcs, most notably at Wor'gol and Stonefang Outpost, where the Thunderlords make use of cannons supplied by the Iron Horde to devastating effect. Ga'nar leads a raid on the Thunderlords, killing his sons Hatock, Grotan and Skal in the process. After being pursued by and , the latter of which he mortally wounds with a spear, he is later confronted by Durotan and Ga'nar in The Thunder's Hall. Here, he reveals himself, as the two of them had been unaware that the Iron Wolf was their brother.
