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]


After Magni Bronzebeard turned to diamond shortly before the Cataclysm, Moira brought Dagran to Ironforge[4] where he remains to this day.

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 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]

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]


In-game, Dagran has pale skin, with short redhead hair, big eyebrows, and blue eyes.

In Before the Storm, his skin is 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]


  • A bright and bookish boy, the prince speaks with little more than a trace of the local dwarven accent.[1]
  • Moira's child appeared in the nightmares of his grandfather Magni Bronzebeard, in which he was fully grown and was called "Fenran".[7] 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".[8]
  • Twilight's Hammer loyalists consider him a "halfbreed" unworthy of the Dark Iron throne.[9]
