Grommash "Grom" Hellscream is the chieftain of the Warsong clan, and a fearsome warrior of the Horde. He wields the Gorehowl.[1]

The night before the Horde departed, Grom visited the camp of the newly arrived Frostwolf clan, bringing with him food in the form of a still-twitching bag of the insects native to the region. He sat and shared food with Durotan and Orgrim, and although prideful was respectful toward the Frostwolves. Grom told the Frostwolves of his clan's joining the Horde, and proclaimed his faith in Gul'dan and the fel, and his belief that the ancient artifact that had been unearthed would lead to a bright and glorious future for the orcs.[2]

Grommash can be seen when Blackhand is forced to plunge his arm (his hand having been disfigured by Lothar) into fel as punishment by Gul'dan. Hellscream would later join Blackhand, when the Horde would ambush the parlay between Durotan and King Llane. After hacking through his enemies Hellscream would advance upon Callan, Lothar's son. Grommash engaged Callan in combat and disarms him, and is about to kill him before Blackhand intervened and killed the human boy in order to gain vengeance upon Lothar.

He later watched the mak'gora between Durotan and Gul'dan.

Hellscream would fight the human forces under King Llane when they attacked the orc camp, before the rest of the Horde could be called into Azeroth. The Horde would prove victorious in the battle though they would lose the human prisoners, and the portal to Draenor would fail before the rest of the Horde could enter Azeroth. After Llane's death, Grommash and Kilrogg Deadeye lifted king's assassin, Garona Halforcen, into the crowd of orcs.

Following Blackhand's death in his mak'gora against Lothar, Grom and the other chieftains would refuse to kill Lothar, who as victor was by tradition free to leave unharmed.[3]


  • In Warcraft: The Official Movie Novelization Grom is described as being almost as large as Blackhand, but more muscular, and more powerful looking, with a physique as sculpted as if it had been chiselled from stone.[2] His tattooed jaw is dark as midnight.[2]

Notes and trivia
