Kardan is a Wildhammer dwarf from the Wildhammer clan who fought with Dougan and Voldana against the Horde during the Second War. When Dougan heard townsfolk were disappearing from investigating the cursed tower of Karazhan, he ventured off with Kardan and Voldana to rescue the missing villagers. The evils of the tower was too much and while Kardan and Voldana escaped, Dougan was left behind. Kardan and Voldana delivered the sad news to Dougan’s wife Adena. Yet so immense was her grief that her mind snapped and she became unfit to raise her twin baby girls. And so Voldana and Kardan decided to honor their colleague by raising the twin girls as their own.
Kardan raised Lieren in Aerie Peak. When Lieren grew up, she became unhappy as she wanted to know anything about her parents but Kardan refused to tell her. Once, Kardan visited Voldana in Quel'Danil. Lieren secretly followed him only to discover that she has a twin sister called Loania who was raised by Voldana. Kardan then narrated them their story and of a paladin Dougan and their mother Adena. The twins convinced them that they wanted to visit Duskwood to find Adena. Kardan and Voldana accompanied them. While there, the group discovered that Adena was dead. As they were about to approach her grave, a wave of undead attacked them, Adena amongst them. Adena injured Kardan and Voldana stayed to defend him, while Lieren and Loania went to put to rest Adena, successfully. After this, they returned to Hinterlands where Adena was reburied. Kardan and Voldana claimed that they have repaid their debt to Adena and Dougan.
