Murky is a green murloc who comes from a fishing village on the Forgotten Coast of Feralas, where he lived with his aunt and uncle. One day, he left to go fishing, but his return was delayed by getting tangled in his own fishing nets, and when he returned everyone was gone, taken by ogres of the Gordunni clan. One month later, Murky was once more tangled up in his nets and was in danger of being crushed against rocks lining a river. He was saved by Aramar Thorne and Makasa Flintwill, who he befriended, and the trio later encountered the night elf druid Thalyss Greyoak. He called his friends Urum, Mrksa, and Duluss.

Eventually, a group called the Hidden, who had been chasing the two humans, kidnapped Murky and demanded that Aram hand over the compass he held in exchange for Murky's life. The exchange, however, was interrupted by the Gordunni party led by Wordok, who captured Aram and Thalyss and took them to Dire Maul, where they would be forced to fight for the amusement of King Gordok. The Hidden's leader, Malus, ordered Throgg to kill the murloc but the human changed his mind and brought him to Dire Maul. The murloc had a chance to run, but he did not.

While the Hidden and the rest of ogres watched the mak'gora between King Gordok and Malus, Murky used his nets to entrap the Hidden and he ran to help his friends just in time when chaos erupted by Gordok's death. As Wordok tried to move the murloc prisoners, Murky jumped on him, covering his eyes. Wordok caught Murky and started to tear him, but Makasa stabbed the ogre. Murky rushed to hug her but apparently never realized that Wordok was still alive and posed a threat which was ended by Hackle whom he called Ukle.

Murky and the rest escaped and joined Aram on his trip to Gadgetzan to uncover the secret of his compass.[2]

He can understand Common, but only speaks Nerglish.[3]
