|Title||<The Thorium Brotherhood>|
|Race||Dark Iron dwarf (Humanoid)|
- When Lolo doesn't wanna spill any o' his precious ale or get this lil' dress dirty, I'm called in. Yep. Ol' Hansel is the dwarf they use to mete out a lil' bit o' justice an' a whole lotta pain.
World of Warcraft and Cataclysm
Hansel was asked by Taskmaster Scrange and Master Smith Burninate to deal with Incendosaurs in the Cauldron but was unable because of his sore feet. In his stead, the adventurers of the Horde and Alliance did it.
After the Cataclysm, Hansel was tasked with more missions but more troubles appeared - he had big fingers, leaving him unable to do anything. He asked the adventurers to destroy enemy golems, kill three members of the Twilight's Hammer cult and bring back their artifacts. He also needed fire from elements for constructing Brotherhood's tools. Since Searing Gorge was in war with the Dark Iron clan and the cult, Hansel had the adventurers find an independent dwarf, Rendan who eventually agreed to help the Brotherhood.
Warlords of Draenor
Hansel has joined the Alliance. During the Assault on the Dark Portal, he and Thaelin Darkanvil served as demolitions experts in the combined Alliance and Horde force. He blew a chamber where Cho'gall was held prisoner. When the Portal was deactivated he accompanied Khadgar's group through the eastern camps. After Khadgar flooded Blackrock Quarry, Hansel asked the adventurer to bring him explosives which he used to blew up a building. He then joined in a fight under the Iron Worldbreaker and left Tanaan.
Hansel alongside Burrian Coalpart, Scorchbrow and some others later ventured into Gorgrond originally to spy on the Blackrock clan, as no one knows how to fight Blackrocks better than Dark Iron dwarves. They got separated but Hansel and his group managed to built a station which they named Moira's Reach. They soon located an artifact in the hands of the Botani and the dwarves decided to take it. They were, however, captured, some of them even killed, but Hansel managed to return to the base which was under the attack of goren. They took the under the base. Reunited with Thaelin and Burrian, the dwarves blasted the Bastion's cannon to aid in the fight against the genesaur Iyu.
Some time later, he arrived to Nagrand where he tried to release the draenei captives in Telaar from the hands of the Warsong orcs. He was unsuccessful and was captured but soon released by the commander. He returned to Telaari Station and commanded the adventurers to deal with the ogres in Mar'gok's Overwatch as well as with the Burning Blade orcs in Hallvalor.
Afterwards, he arrived to Thaelin's secret station in Gorgrond but orcs found it. They tied Hansel up but took Thaelin. With the help of the commander, both dwarves were rescued and returned to Lunarfall for a brief time.
