There is one flaw in your view, orcs do not apologize for past actions. That's not their way, they will admit that they were wrong but they won't apologize to you.

Blackhand, he has a pretty important part in the book, but he seems to be mostly bashing and slicing instead of actually having a large part, as for his children they are magically ages using warlock powers

The orcs needed more troops, what better way to do that than to encourage your people to breed more and magically age the children by warlock magics. Soon the orcs had more numbers than the draenei and crushed them. With this knowledge in mind.....it's still possible that Garona could be half human now....hehe

There's just one problem with that, why the heck would somebody want to "waste their precious magics" in a "useless half-human".

Garona herself said nobody (but maybe Gul'Dan) saw her as useful.

I still think Garona is half-dreanei after seeing that other half-draenei. Even if she was magically aged, it would not explain how she remembered the creation of the Dark Portal.

I still support my "unlucky mage in Azeroth finds himself in Draenor and falls in love with an Orc Woman" -theory.

Problem is that she isn´t blue like other half-draeneis in Outland.

I could have sworn that he was deep blue...

I stand corrected then.

So does BLZ know/pay attention to that Garona's origin is ridiculous? I guess yes, from the description of Garona in tLG.

Who knows, she remains to this day one of the more mysterious characters. Besides the fact that no one knows what happened to her after Doomhammer had her tortured.

We did see her in WoW Beta, I wish they didn't take her out. I was so hoping to learn more about her.

Who is to say that Gul'Dan himself was not responsible?

I don't think even Gul'Dan respected her abilities of backstabbing and sublety when she was a freaking baby.

Blackhand the Destroyer - Chieftain of the Blackrock Clan

Orgrim Doomhammer - Second in Command of the Blackrock Clan

Durotan - Chieftain of the Frostwolf Clan

Grom Hellscream - Chieftain of the Warsong Clan, he was a badass before drinking the blood of Mannoroth by the way. His scream sent chills down even the toughest orc's spine.

Ner'zhul - Chieftain of the Shadowmoon Clan.

Kargath Bladefist - Chieftain of the Shattered Hand Clan

Kilrogg Deadeye - Chieftain of the Bleeding Hollow Clan

Rend and Maim -prior to becoming Chieftains of the Black Tooth Grin Clan

Gul'dan - Prior to becoming Chieftain of the Stormrever Clan.

Pretty much it, I think.

Sounds cool, good to hear about Hellscream still being a bad ass, what was your opinion on Kargath and Kilrogg, kenzuki?

Did Stormreavers already exist in Draenor or did the information about them being formed during the first/second war correct?

Put it to you this way, during the festival that the orcs had twice a year in Nagrand where twice a year all the clans would come together to meet and discuss stuff. Blackhand, Hellscream, Deadeye, and Bladefist all sat together and according to Durotan they were the more martial and warlike of all the chieftains. They were the badasses of the orc world so to speak. Kilrogg was described as old for a Chieftain, but according to Durotan he still had many years left in him due to his toughness.

I love how it's described how the orcs drank the blood of Mannoroth. Because Gul'dan was about to let Blackhand drink the first taste of it, when all of a sudden a hellish scream was heard. Grom then strode up front and demanded he and his clan were to be the first orcs to try it. When he drank it his scream became much more hellish and fearsome, chilling the bone they say. He then told his warriors that it would make them more powerful, so they drank as well. It didn't turn the orcs red though, just made them more green.
