General Hammond Clay is the successor of the late General Marcus Jonathan as commander of the defense of Stormwind City, following Jonathan's death during the Attack on Theramore Isle. He can be found at the end of the Valley of Heroes, in front of the statue of Turalyon.

When pandaren adventurers enter Stormwind for the first time, Hammond welcomed them and noticed Jojo Ironbrow's pillar.

He also shows up with High Sorcerer Andromath and Maginor Dumas to arrest Hogger, as did his predecessor.

When the city was under the lockdown because of the infiltration from the Veiled Hand, Hammond organized the soldiers on the bridge, inspected the smoke explosion in Trade District and ultimately guarded the entrance of the Stormwind Keep.[1]

He participated in the Battle for Lordaeron. Later, he was encountered by Horde champions that attacked an Alliance host marching from Stromgarde towards the ruins of Durnholde Keep.[2]
