A powerful fire elemental held captive in the upper portions of Blackrock Spire, Pyroguard Emberseer was held prisoner by several warlocks. However, when the warlocks were broken from their trance and destroyed, Emberseer would break free and attempt to destroy anything near him. Passage to the rest of the spire was only allowed when Emberseer was eliminated.

Dungeon Journal

Long ago, Pyroguard Emberseer, a loyal minion of the mighty Ragnaros the Firelord, incinerated dozens of Blackrock orcs during a climactic battle at the Burning Steppes. Ultimately Emberseer was defeated and imprisoned within Blackrock Mountain, where his potent energy is now siphoned for use in accelerating the incubation of Nefarian's black dragon eggs.
