Steel is the cloud serpent pet and companion of Koak.[1]


After a Horde zeppelin crash saw it's mother dead, Steel came into the care of the orc Koak. After waiting days for a Horde rescue party and becoming convinced that it was not arriving, Koak decided to bring the young hatchling to the Order of the Cloud Serpent after seeing two of their riders in the sky. Koak was convinced to stay and train the young cloud serpent, though Koak's own motivation was to train the hatchling in order to prove himself worth of being Dragonmaw.

Steel was known to create mischief and was known to enjoy Kao's company. Unbeknownst to the serpent Koak, was struggling between using the Order's methods and what he know of the Dragonmaw teaching methods which would soon come to a head. With the Horde descending into civil war Koak tried to force Steel to obey; an action which deeply hurt Steel before it fled from Koak.

Steel would soon be discovered from Koak, who was feeling immense guilt due to his actions, and had a heart to heart with the Cloud Serpent.

he orc feeling immensely guilt of his actions, sought out the cloud serpent he had been taking care of for months in order to apologize. Due to pouring out his heart Steel regained trust towards Koak and allowed him to ride him after Koak used a method shown to him be Elder Anli near the beginning of their stay with them. With this act Koak officially bestowed the name Steel on the serpent and directed him to journey to the Shrine of Two Moons in order to aid his people by joining the Darkspear rebellion.[2]
