Jorum Balnir was the head of the Balnir family of horse-breeders, the husband of Vara, and father of Jarim.

In his youth, Prince Arthas Menethil often sneaked off to the Balnir Farmstead to admire Jorum's horses and play with Jarim. Neither of the boys cared that a horsebreeder's son wasn't a proper companion for a prince, and their parents didn't try to stop the friendship. During one such winter play session, Jorum invited the boys to assist the horse Brightmane as she gave birth to her son Invincible, who later became Arthas' own steed.[1]

During the winter storm that led to the death of Invincible, it was Jorum and his son who found Arthas and rescued the prince from freezing to death in the woods near the Balnir Farmstead. Jorum agreed to Arthas' request of burying Invincible on the farm.[2]

After murdering his father, Arthas returned to the Balnir Farmstead to revive Invincible and found that the Balnirs had all been killed by the very Scourge that he was now a part of.[3]
