Kur'kul was once a shaman of the powerful Blackrock clan on Draenor prior to the corruption of the orcish race. When the elements abandonded the shaman, Kil'jaeden offered to teach Gul'dan the path of the warlock so that he may teach the shaman. The shaman of the Blackrock clan were chosen to be the first trained in the dark arts. Kur'kul and the others learned quickly and soon demonstrated their powers to the other chieftains and shaman, to most of their approvals. Kur'kul was later sent by Blackhand to the clans, aging all children between the ages of six and twelve to adulthood, in order to increase the Old Horde's numbers. When he arrived at the Frostwolf camp and informed Durotan of what was to be done, the chieftain was horrified, but could not protest without placing his clan at risk of exile. Once his orders were carried out Durotan ordered Kur'kul to leave immediately.[1]

His status afterwards is unknown.


  • "I have the ability to accentuate their growth. We will...push them forward a bit. If we take all the children that are between six and twelve now and age them to twelve, we will increase the number of warriors on the field by almost fifty percent."[2]
  • "For their future? Yes. I will drain a little of their lives...only six years' worth. They will come to no harm. The Blackrock children certainly didn't. Black-hand insisted his own three young ones be the first to be so honored. And in return, they will be able to fight for the glory of the Horde now, when they can make a difference."[3]
