Prince Dagran Thaurissan II is the son of Emperor Dagran Thaurissan of the Dark Iron clan and Moira Thaurissan (born Moira Bronzebeard) of Ironforge. Dagran is thus the heir presumptive[2] to the thrones of both Ironforge and Shadowforge City.[3]

The rule of Ironforge is currently decided by the Council of Three Hammers, composed of Moira, Muradin Bronzebeard, and Falstad Wildhammer. When Dagran achieves his age of majority and takes control of the kingdom, the Council will disband.[2]

During the trial of Garrosh Hellscream, Dagran was seen in a vision of the night when Varian Wrynn and SI:7 infiltrated Ironforge.[5]

Before the Storm[]

When King Anduin Wrynn visited Ironforge following the Argus Campaign, Dagran accompanied his mother and the king on a walk through Ironforge, including a visit to his favorite place, the Hall of Explorers. Anduin guessed that the prince was six or seven years old. When the trio reached Old Ironforge, Dagran started reading the ritual words that had turned Magni into diamond. Moments later, a guard informed Moira and Anduin that Magni had returned to Ironforge and needed to see them in the Hall of Explorers.[1] Although Dagran protested that he wanted to see his grandfather, Moira asked Advisor Belgrum to take care of the prince while she and Anduin met with the Speaker. However, once the conversation with Magni was over, Moira asked him to stay in the city a little longer so he could meet his grandson.[6]

The Vow Eternal[]

A few years later, Dagran and his family were among those who attended the wedding of Lor'themar Theron and Thalyssra at the Lunastre Estate. At some point during the party, he chatted amicably with Arator the Redeemer under a tree, with whom he developed a friendship, and examined a beautiful ceremonial dagger that the paladin had worn at the wedding. Moira expressed to Wrathion that she was glad Arator was befriending him as Dagran didn't have many friends growing up.[7]


In-game, Dagran uses a baby dwarf model with pale skin, short red hair, big eyebrows, and blue eyes.

In Before the Storm, he is a young child with skin described as an unusual but warm shade of gray. His eyes are large and green with no hint of any red glow, and his hair is white.[1] In The Vow Eternal, now several years older, he is described as having a glimmer of fiery red in his green eyes and his white hair being tied into a tidy braid. His body is described as gawky.[7]

Because Moira was with child when Emperor Dagran was killed in Year 25,[8] Dagran is about 14 - 15 years old in Dragonflight, which is in Year 40.[9]


  • A bright and bookish boy, the prince speaks with little more than a trace of the local dwarven accent.[1]
  • Before Dagran was born, Moira's child appeared in the nightmares of his grandfather Magni Bronzebeard, in which he was fully grown and was called "Fenran".[10] Interestingly enough, he is still called "Fenran" in the Spanish, German and Russian translations of Fire and Iron.
  • The index of the Ultimate Visual Guide book lists Dagran with the title of "Emperor".[11]
  • Twilight's Hammer loyalists consider him a "halfbreed" unworthy of the Dark Iron throne.[12]
