The Razormane tribe is a tribe of quilboar that inhabit Durotar and the Barrens.

The Razormane led by Nak, Kuz and Lok Orcbane[1] have been known to raid the Crossroads and steal supplies. They also killed Mankrik's wife and wounded him badly. They were at war with the Bristleback quilboars.[2][3]

At some point in the past, when the mysterious kelani magi fell, the Razormane quilboars were quick to scavenge their Enchanted Gemstones.

When the Cataclysm split the Barrens, the Razormanes were thrown into chaos. The northern group became refugees separated from their leadership, until they rallied under Tortusk, who turned them into brigands and had them attack Grol'dom Farm. After his death, the orcs though about starting a dialogue with the survivors.[4]

Locations

The Razormane inhabit mostly the area around Thorn Hill, Blackthorn Ridge (bordering the Razorfen tribe to the south), and expand into the Razormane Grounds in search of new land in the orc territory of Durotar.

Culture

The Razormane quilboars are a spiritual tribe.[5] They know that their bones need to be strong when entering a battle,[6] with the Razormane's greatest warriors being infused with Agamaggan's strength.[7] The Razormane's greatest scouts are said to be unrivaled in their accuracy, and no rogue could measure up to their quickness in battle.[8]

Tortusk's mount is a raptor named Fez.

Razormanes are one of the two most prominent quilboar tribes. Native to the Barrens, they frequently raid and pillage nearby settlements.[9]

Trivia

  • In Warcraft III, many of the quilboar creeps were Razormanes. As such, they could be encountered in the maps of the bonus campaign such as Dustwallow Marsh and Mulgore, as well as in many multiplayer maps.

Leadership

Questionmark-medium.png
This article or section includes speculation, observations or opinions possibly supported by lore or by Blizzard officials. It should not be taken as representing official lore.

It's possible Mangletooth has been the leader of the tribe since the beginning, leading heroes of the Horde to believe that Lok Orcbane was the leader. This way Mangletooth could have his vengeance on them for leaving him captured at Camp Taurajo.[10] Even when Mangletooth has the adventurer bring the skull of Lok as proof of the leader's death, Thork thought the leader was a different quilboar.[11]

It's also possible, given how the quilboar take over new leadership, that Mangletooth was the chieftain and challenged by Lok who won, leaving Mangletooth for dead. Lok then would have taken over the tribe, leaving Mangletooth wanting revenge.[10]

This could explain how quickly and easily Mangletooth was able to become the chieftain of the tribe after having either escape or released from Camp Taurajo.
