Underworld Minions

This organization of murlocs worshiped a banshee or naga named Sea Witch. The group used to have an underground lair, but it collapsed when Thrall escaped their dungeon. These were the first murlocs introduced (chronologically) into the Warcraft universe. Surprisingly, other members of the Underworld Minions included ghosts, golems, spiders, skeletons, gnolls, salamanders, and sludges.

These are the units found in the Warcraft III prologue called Exodus of the Horde that served as the demo for Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos. They were not in the retail version of Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos' "prologue campaign", but were later included with the re-release in the Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne "custom campaign".
