- The platinum-skinned giant holds a scintillating horn in one hand; the other rests easily on his hip. A hint of a smile plays across his face, while lightning flashes constantly from his eyes.
Creator of the seas and skies, Golganneth is the father of Azeroth's sea giants and loves flying and swimming creatures above all else. He has a massive laugh, which he uses often, and a fine sense of humor. Aman'Thul's mighty son, Golganneth is a diligent, energetic titan who takes great joy in all he does. He revels most of all in storm and the rage of the winds; though he exists to bring order, of all the titans he secretly loves the fury of nature. When angered, he is truly frightening.
Golganneth influences the seas and skies, and their native beings. Azeroth's sea giants venerate Golganneth and hold small ceremonies several times a year in his honor. These ceremonies involve the crafting and sounding of musical horns and the feeding of small fish.
Golganneth has some similarities to the "thunderer" archetype, of which the Norse god Thor is a famous example. Shargahn also has a tie with Thor's hammer, Mjollnir, in that neither are traditionally weapons (in old Nordic times hammers were used exclusively as tools, and were considered a very strange choice for a weapon). Golganneth's horn is more reminiscent of Heimdall, but his province of the sea and storms most closely links him with Njord, also of the Norse pantheon, or Poseidon/Neptune, Greco-Roman mythology, respectively.
