Leeroy Jenkins was a soldier from the kingdom of Stormwind.

He was a part of King Llane's royal guard when he and Chieftain Durotan of the Frostwolves attempted to parlay with one another in order to stop Gul'dan. However, unknown to all was that Orgrim Doomhammer, not convinced that aiding the humans would lead to victory, had betrayed them and the parlay was ambushed by Horde forces. During the battle that followed Medivh split the battlefield in two with lightning barriers, allowing the king and most of the party to escape, but locking Leeroy, Callan Lothar and a few footmen with the orc party.[1] Leeroy was first to charge at the orcs.[2]

Notes

  • An early draft for the Warcraft movie included a scene where a certain "Private Jenkins" would rush headfirst into battle only to get himself killed by an orc.[3]
