Murky comes from a fishing village on the Forgotten Coast of Feralas, where he lived with his aunt and uncle. He left one day to go fishing, but his return was delayed by getting tangled in his own fishing nets, and when he returned everyone was gone, taken by ogres of the Gordunni clan. One month later, Murky was once more tangled up in his nets and was in danger of being crushed against rocks lining a river. He was saved by Aramar Thorne and Makasa Flintwill, who he befriended, and the trio later encountered the night elf druid Thalyss Greyoak. He called his friends Urum, Mrksa and Duluss.
Eventually a group called the Hidden, who had been chasing the two humans, kidnapped Murky and demanded that Aram hand over the compass he held in exchange for Murky's life. The exchange, however, was interrupted by the Gordunni party led by Wordok, who captured Aram and Thalyss and took them to Dire Maul, where they would be forced to fight for the amusement of King Gordok. The Hidden's leader, Malus, ordered Throgg to kill the murloc but the human changed his mind and brought him to Dire Maul. The murloc had a chance to run, but he did not.
While the Hidden and the rest of ogres watched the mak'gora between King Gordok and Malus, Murky used his nets to entrap the Hidden and he ran to help his friends just in time when chaos erupted by Gordok's death. As Wordok tried to move the murloc prisoners, Murky jumped on him, covering his eyes. Wordok caught Murky and started to tear him, but Makasa stabbed the ogre. Murky rushed to hug her but apparently never realized that Wordok was still alive and posed a threat which was ended by Hackle whom he called Ukle.

King Mrgl-Mrgl, a member of the Druids for the Ethical and Humane Treatment of Animals, has recently arrived at the Shipwreck Cove in northern Highmountain to observe the activities of the Swamprock tribe of murlocs. To his distress, however, the Swamprock are ruthless and cruel, their favorite pastime being to cause shipwrecks with their makeshift lighthouse. Thus, Mrgl-Mrgl has begun raising the young Murky, in the hopes that he can teach the Swamprock tadpoles to be better than their elders. Through a series of quests, Mrgl-Mrgl sends Murky to accompany the adventurer to grow stronger, learn new abilities and recruit the Swamprock tadpoles to his cause.
Once Murky has grown strong enough and recruited enough tadpoles, Mrgl-Mrgl informs the adventurer that Murky and his followers need a place to hide out and train away from the adult Swamprock, and that a nearby cave inhabited by the Cavemoss makrura would be the ideal location. As Murky is still young and inexperienced, Mrgl-Mrgl has the adventurer "mindmeld" with Murky's egg to kill the makrura and their leader, Clawdayshus. Once Clawdayshus has been vanquished, Mrgl-Mrgl and the Swamprock tadpoles charge into the cave, proclaiming it to belong to the newly-formed "Murkloc tribe". With the adventurer's role finished, Mrgl-Mrgl decides to stay behind with Murky and the Murkloc to observe their development.
Template:Hots-section Like the enigmatic origins of the murloc race, Murky's past is also veiled in a variety unanswered questions. Who is he? Where does he come from? He dies again and again, and yet each time, returns to life from his egg. Stranger yet, when he emerges, he looks and sounds precisely the same. Does he possess unspeakable powers? Could he be immortal?
The world may never know.
