Olin Umberhide is a tauren Protection warrior that wields a tauren totem. He is soft-spoken but will crack skulls if necessary.[1]

His Alliance counterpart is Qiana Moonshadow.


Olin was first seen fighting the Iron Horde during the Iron Horde Incursion in the Blasted Lands and later participated in the Assault on the Dark Portal in Tanaan Jungle. He then accompanied Khadgar and the Vanguard survivors through the Bleeding Hollow and Shattered Hand encampments. In the Umbral Halls he and Lady Liadrin were tasked with scouting the area. Upon leaving the Halls, he joined with the adventurer in battling the Blackrock orcs in the Blackrock Quarry. He and the rest escaped Tanaan after destroying the Dark Portal and headed for Frostfire Ridge. After arriving, he and Thrall aided the commander in assaulting the gronn Skog in order to establish Frostwall. After the first stage of the Horde garrison was constructed, he was captured by the Pale but was soon rescued by the commander. As a gesture of gratitude, he pledged himself to the commander and the Horde as a follower in Frostwall.

He is ultimately seen fighting in The Path of Glory when the Horde attacked Azuka Bladefury.

How we survived this far is a mystery to me. You are quite the field commander.


Which way does the wind blow?
