Byrok is an orcish fisherman. He had lost his right eye in a fight against a demon. While he was in Deadeye Shore, Byrok noticed six humans nearby. It was revealed that they were members of Burning Blade. Byrok attacked them, because he had heard that they wanted to kill Thrall. However, they overcame him and he started to run, but they caught him as he was injured.
Later on, Byrok was found by Rexxar and Misha. They carried him to Orgrimmar where he told Thrall about the Burning Blade. He was then taken by shaman Kalthar to be healed. The shaman was sure he would survive.
