Kelkar and Zuura showed the clan their newly born daugher, Draka. As a chieftain of the clan, he blessed her. Years later, there was a large fire in the Frostwolf village when Blackhand once visited it. Blackhand saw Draka hardly able to lift a bucket of water, and took it as sign of weakness in the Frostwolf Clan. Blackhand added that If she had been born to Blackrock Clan they would have killed her. To save face Garad exiled Kelkar, Zuura and Draka to the outskirts of the village. Years later, months before the Kosh'harg festival, Garad forbade them to attend the festival.[2]

Family tree.

He was killed in a battle against a group of ogres and a gronn shortly before Kil'jaeden convinced the orcs to make war against the draenei.[3] He was succeeded as chieftain by his son, Durotan, who would be the only voice of dissent against the corruption of the orcish people.


  • The Mag'har stronghold of Garadar in Nagrand is named for him.[4]
  • In the alternate Draenor, Frostwolf warriors say that Garad and Ga'nar fought against the Laughing Skull clan in the past.[5] This probably happened in the main universe Draenor as well.
  • Garad is also mentioned in Durotan's TCG card: "The son of Garad was betrayed, cut down before his infant son Go'el could know him."[6]

Alternate timelines

An alternate Garad is featured on the alternate Draenor in the past during the war in Draenor.
