The Winterax tribe are a tribe (or clan)[2][3] of ice trolls led by Korrak the Bloodrager. They are cannibals.[4]

Background

The Winterax tribe were once part of the nation of Zul'Drak. After the Sundering, the Drakkari tribe continued to live in what had become the bitterly cold continent of Northrend. The Winterax and Frostmane tribes, however, later settled in the Eastern Kingdoms. Due to the ice trolls' unrelenting hostility toward outsiders, historians have yet to learn how these two tribes were separated from the Drakkari and came to live so far from the ancient site of Zul'Drak.

Like the Frostmane trolls, the Winteraxes do not share the unusually large size of their Drakkari brethren. The Winterax trolls have been invading the valleys of alterac and Alterac Valley and were fighting the dwarves of the Stormpike clan (Stormpike Guard) and Frostwolf clan.

One day, Korrak and his people simply disappeared, along with most of their belongings and supplies. The mystified orcs and dwarves concluded that the trolls had at last given up their home, which, after all, had devolved into little more than a bloody battlefield, and left in search of greener pastures.[5] Korrak has recently been seen competing in the Amphitheater of Anguish in Northrend as one of the top gladiators.[1]

It's unknown how the tribe managed to travel the long distance across the sea and land to Zul'Drak, or if the tribe survived the journey since only Korrak is seen while the location of his tribe is unknown, but one can speculate that they have rejoined with the Drakkari. If they did join the Drakkari, then they too have likely been wiped out by the Scourge.

It's said death to Korrak would mean death to the Winterax clan.[6]
