Kargath Bladefist

Warlord of the Shattered Hand Clan

Unbound by the shackles of self-restraint, Kargath performs monstrous acts of violence, and he enjoys every moment.

Kargath battled for survival in the ogres' bloody gladiatorial arena on Draenor. Every day brought torment. Constant fighting and torture pushed him ever closer to the edge. When the last glimmer of hope was extinguished, Kargath destroyed his hand to escape from his chains. His fellow prisoners who were willing to pay the same bodily price smashed their hands as well. They formed the Shattered Hand clan. The former slave, now a chieftain, mounted his blade on the stump of his arm, earning him the name Kargath Bladefist.

As members of the Iron Horde, Kargath and the Shattered Hand clan wield their cruelty with abandon. They don't just dominate; they spread agony wherever they can. In order to join the clan, new members must prove their zeal by demonstrating their readiness to cause pain—including their own. The unbridled depravity of the Shattered Hand makes Kargath one of the least predictable warlords, and one of the most difficult to control. If he is willing to butcher his hand in exchange for freedom, imagine what lies in store for his enemies.


Kargath and his Shattered Hand clan claim no specific holdings, but under the direction of the Iron Horde he and his followers have erected the monstrous Bladefist Hold among the Spires of Arak.
