Cloudhoof was one of the twin sons of Sunwalker Dezco and Leza Dawnchaser. He and his brother, Redhorn, were born in the Krasarang Wilds, their mother dying in childbirth.[1] Their father carried them with him at all times in baskets strapped to his back and chest. Cloudhoof was his "weaning name", with his true name intended to be given to him when he came of age. Dezco named his twins after a deceased old friend and a hero who helped him in the Krasarang Wilds.

When Redhorn was kidnapped by mogu, Dezco ran off to save him. Despite Mokimo the Strong asking Dezco to keep Cloudhoof safe with him, the infant was brought along. In the chaos of battle Cloudhoof's body was crushed, killing him. Dezco then built a pyre to have Cloudhoof joined An'she.[2]


Cloudhoof was not intended to be the child's true name: the Dawnchaser tribe carries a rare tradition of giving weaning names to children, until they are old enough to receive a true name.[3] Cloudhoof died before he got the chance to be named, but his brother Redhorn would indeed be named Kor as his father hoped.
