High Warlord Cromush
High Warlord Cromush is an orc high warlord, who attended the where showed how the val'kyr raise the dead into new Forsaken. Both the High Warlord and the Warchief himself were disgusted by this, and to make sure the forsaken won't be up to any tricks, Garrosh dispensed Cromush to "guard" Sylvanas.
Cromush takes this charge without question, though appears to be far more tolerant of the Forsaken than some other orcs in the Eastern Kingdoms.
High Warlord Cromush accompanied Lady Sylvanas and her forces through Silverpine Forest - Sepulcher and The Forsaken Front. From the latter he directed the adventurers to kill worgen druids. Following the , he fought against and his allies when they betrayed Sylvanas, making Godfrey and his ilk escape to the nearby Shadowfang Keep. In a moment of panic, Cromush hastily urged the val'kyr to "fix" Sylvanas, which they did, even though it cost them their lives in the process.
later finds Cromush within Shadowfang Keep, and together with the player they work to defeat Godfrey. Belmont smoothly attributes the plague the Forsaken forces had been using to clean the keep's effectiveness to be little more than a worgen repellent, an excuse Cromush takes with a pinch of salt. Godfrey is later able to incapacitate Cromush via poison, leaving Belmont and the player to continue ahead and take revenge.
Cromush was later relocated to Tarren Mill in Hillsbrad Foothills, eager to put the Forsaken war machine to good use. After the demise of , Cromush honors his actions for the betterment of a Horde-controlled Lordaeron, and learns of the Stormpike Clan's intentions towards it. He asks for the aid of the Frostwolf Clan in retaliation, and is shocked when General Drek'Thar completely rejects the notion of aiding the Forsaken.
Outraged, Cromush resolves to defeat the Stormpike without the assistance of the Frostwolves. With the help of the player and the Banshee , Cromush goes about bringing the destruction of the Stormpike Clan in Hillsbrad, and is able to bring about an aptly named "Stormpike apocalypse", shattering their presence in Hillsbrad.
Cromush reveals that Warchief Hellscream will learn of Drek'Thar's supposed "treason", though nothing ever came of it.
