The Winterskorn clan (or tribe) is a clan of vrykul that live in Skorn and Baleheim in Howling Fjord of Northrend. They are led by Bjorn Halgurdsson. The elders of Winterhoof tribe say that these vrykul may be able to rise from the dead; not unlike the Scourge, but a different kind of undeath.
Thousands of years ago, armed by the fire giants Volkhan and Ignis, the Winterskorn attacked other titan-forged across the Storm Peaks, thus beginning the Winterskorn War. They caught the attention of Tyr when they attacked the earthen. Tyr asked the Dragon Aspects for aid, and the war ended with Ysera and Nozdormu putting the Winterskorn into a timeless sleep beneath northern Kalimdor.
The Winterskorn were awakened thousands of years later by the Lich King to serve the Scourge. They answered to the Dragonflayer clan.
