Telkar Doomhammer was the father of Warchief Orgrim Doomhammer, and one of the best warriors in the Blackrock clan. He wielded the mighty Doomhammer, considered by some to be a weapon of prophecy. Some years after Orgrim and his friend Durotan encountered the Prophet Velen, Telkar died and the weapon was passed onto his son. Doomhammer was passed to Orgrim with these words: "It is said that the last of the Doomhammer line will use it to bring first salvation and then doom to the orc people. Then it will pass into the hands of one who is not of the Blackrock clan, all will change again, and it will once again be used in the cause of justice."
Orgrim would then wield it until the day he died — when the prophecy of Doomhammer was thus fulfilled and passed onto an orc not of the Doomhammer lineage who would free the orcs from their demonic chains... Thrall, son of Durotan.
- Telkar is used as the name of the leader of the protoss Shelak Tribe in one of Christie Golden's other works, StarCraft: The Dark Templar Saga: Firstborn.
