Calder Gray is a really insane Forsaken quest giver found in Desolation Hold in the Southern Barrens, where he with the help of the adventurer creates Gray's Abomination from various corpses. He is also seen in Twilight Highlands, where his creation is one of the matches of the Crucible of Carnage. Calder Gray had been unceremoniously booted from Orgrimmar, hauled through the main gates. Unknown exactly why, it's likely to do with his... "research".

He was later found assisting the adventurers in Mount Hyjal during the Firelands Invasion for N [85 Daily] The Protectors of Hyjal.

During the invasion of Draenor he becomes available as a follower in commander's Garrison, where his Alliance counterpart is Draeken Nightspear.

Southern Barrens


Southern Barrens
It was dreadful, <class>. Unceremoniously booted from Orgrimmar, jars of fresh squirming body parts smashed to the ground as I was hauled through the gates.
Like I was some kind of monster!
Fortunately I've been able to continue my research here, where there's no shortage of fresh corpses.


<A cockroach slithers from Calder's mouth and scurries back into his skull through an empty eye socket.>


<You find Calder idly picking at his ear with a dagger.>


<On seeing you approach, Calder re-hinges his jaw to speak with you.>

Upon completing H [34] Smarts-is-Smarts:

It's alive, <name>. It's alive!
Go forth, my beautiful angel! Ah, it is so very sad when one's children leave the nest, isn't it?

After the player has completed the Southern Barrens quest chain:

Do you know what I like, <name>?
Gossip No Calder, what do you like?

Mount Hyjal


  • Calder Gray, reporting for mayhem... er, duty.

In combat:

  • Fire and rocks don't really do anything for me. I'm really more of a flesh man.
  • You know the worst thing about fire creatures? No harvestable organs.
  • There's really nothing I enjoy more than the sound of screaming victims. Especially if they're MY victims.


  • I really should be going. All this killing reminded me I still have some fresh corpses that aren't sewn to one another.


  • A cockroach resides or used to reside in his skull.


This section includes speculation on characters that might be related, usually because they may share a last name. It should not be taken as representing official lore.

He may be related to Sergeant Gray.
