|Sources: Wrath of the Lich King|
Halgrind was a vrykul town found in Howling Fjord . Halgrind was exposed to the new plague being designed by the Royal Apothecary Society. When the Forsaken took control of the town,  the chieftain, , fled. The remaining vrykul, while not dropping dead from exposure, found themselves trapped and slowly killed.
- It may be a possible reference to "Helgrind" from the Eragon series of books by Christopher Paolini.
- It could also be an amalgamation of the words "Hael", the Old-Norse word for Hell, and "Grind", the Swedish word for gate. As the vrykul are themselves a reference to vikings, it would seem very appropriate.
