Kashur in A Warrior Made.

When newly-born Draka was shown to the rest of the Frostwolf clan in order to receive their blessing, the clanmates noticed her illness. The clan's elder shaman Mother Kashur thought that perhaps their ancestors or elemental spirits had some plans for her so she blessed her.

Years later, Draka came to Mother Kashur asking for help with her physical weakness since Frostwolf Chieftain Garad had forbidden her family from attending the Kosh'harg celebration in fear of the other clans' disrespect. As Draka begged, Kashur agreed and asked her grandfather Tal'kraa who told her how to proceed. Mother Kashur sent Draka out for components of a 'spell' for a potion, wing feather of a windroc, horn of a talbuk, and fur of a clefthoof. If Draka slayed these beasts and gathered the reagents Draka would be made strong.[1]

When Draka returned, Kashur explained that there would be no potion, but rather that the hunt had already made her stronger. The quest truly had the necessary effect so Draka would eventually take part in the Kosh'harg celebration and meet the love of her life, Durotan.[2]

Rise of the Horde[]

Kashur was an old friend of Ner'zhul. She accompanied her clan for the Kosh'harg celebrations and during one, she tended to the injuries of young Durotan done by Orgrim.

Though old and decrepit, she vowed to keep walking to Oshu'gun for as long as she could walk. She brought Durotan to the cave of Oshu'gun at the behest of Tal'kraa, who wanted to see him.

One day, she insisted on joining a clefthoof hunt, only to be fatally trampled before anyone could intervene. Even as the Frostwolf clan mourned her, they celebrated her life and the end that she had chosen; and she was replaced as the clan's elder shaman by her apprentice Drek'Thar.

Mother Kashur's spirit, like all the spirits of the orcish ancestors, was drawn to the sacred mountain of Oshu'gun by the psychic call of the dying naaru K'ure. Kil'jaeden impersonated her to convince Drek'Thar that the Frostwolves should reject the practices of shamanism and study the path of the warlock, though Durotan resisted this idea.[3]

Mother Kashur is known to have had a great black wolf named Dreamwalker as her companion and mount.

The Burning Crusade[]

Following Kashur's death, Greatmother Geyah took over the role of clan mother. During the invasion of Outland, Kashur spoke to Geyah in her dreams,[4] saying that she wished to speak to a Horde adventurer. Geyah told the adventurer to gather reagents for a potion that would let them see Kashur's spirit,[5] but this was in reality only a test of their dedication.[6] When the adventurer met her at the Ancestral Grounds, Kashur revealed that a disturbance had agitated the spirits of the orc ancestors,[7] causing them all to move south toward Oshu'gun.[8] Kashur sent the hero into the mountain to investigate.[9]

Inside, the hero discovered that it was the wounded naaru K'ure who was unwillingly drawing the spirits toward itself.[10] With the help of the other naaru, the adventurer obtained a soul mirror from the Auchenai Crypts and used it for the only available recourse: destroying the orc spirits before they could transform into Void creatures. Although upset, Kashur thanked the hero for risking their life to ensure the Mag'har's safety and the peace of the ancestors,[11] then sent them back to Geyah to deliver the news.[12]

After the adventurer left, the Mag'har Seer Nakha sought out Kashur's spirit as well. Kashur told Nakha of "a song that only the spirits could hear", which had troubled the ancestors at first until the hero had helped them find rest. After years of trying, Nakha heard the song for herself, inspiring her to create the Lok'osh, a path of orc priests.[13]
