Biography[]

WoW-novel-logo-16x62 This section concerns content related to the Warcraft novels, novellas, or short stories.

Lord of the Clans[]

Among the Frostwolf clan, all of the young warriors have wolves to help them hunt and survive. The orcs, in return, share their food with the wolves, heal their injuries, and protect their cubs. It is a relationship of equals looking out for one another, rather than the master/pet relationship one might expect. While Thrall was living among the Frostwolf clan, Snowsong chose to bond with him for life.[1]

Stormrage[]

When the Emerald Nightmare enveloped Azeroth, Snowsong mourned her "hunting-brother" Thrall who has been claimed by the Nightmare. It was also Snowsong who first catches the scent of the shadowy invaders assembling outside Orgrimmar's walls, simultaneously alerting the defenders that the lookouts already have fallen prey to the Nightmare.[2]

Thrall: Twilight of the Aspects[]

During Thrall's journey to Feralas, Snowsong accompanied Thrall. Thrall helped the local night elven druids in their troubles against the hostile elements. He then learned that his true journey has just begun. Thrall alongside the green dragon Desharin went to the Caverns of Time and Snowsong was said to be delivered to Jaina Proudmoore.[3]

War Crimes[]

Snowsong is revealed to be too old to ride into battle any longer, but Thrall still takes her out for spirited runs. Thrall took his son Durak on a ride to One Keg during a recess in the trial of Garrosh Hellscream.[4]

Warlords of Draenor[]

Notes[]

  • In Warcraft III, Thrall's wolf was black-furred. In The Burning Crusade, Thrall travels through Nagrand on a white wolf. In Wrath of the Lich King, Thrall also rides a white wolf in The Battle For The Undercity. In Mists of Pandaria during the events of Landfall, he rode a brown wolf.[5] The different fur colors could be explained by Snowsong's fur changing over time, or by Thrall having different wolf companions.
    • In Warcraft III: Reforged, Thrall's wolf has been changed to be white like Snowsong while he is warchief. In addition, when using his Champion of the Horde skin, the wolf's fur is slightly paler than the new white wolf as well.
      • This seems to have been deliberate, as the original depiction of Thrall during the ChinaJoy convention showed him atop a black wolf as he was in the original Warcraft III.

Speculation[]

Questionmark-medium
This article or section includes speculation, observations or opinions possibly supported by lore or by Blizzard officials. It should not be taken as representing official lore.

Starting in Shadows Rising, Moonpaw has replaced Snowsong as Thrall's battle mount. While it is possible that the aged Snowsong has simply retired, it may be that she has died from old age. Thrall's outfits in Battle for Azeroth onward are partly comprised of white fur, which may mean he is wearing Snowsong's pelt in the same way that his father Durotan wore the pelt of Geyah's late wolf companion Stormfang.
