The Seven were Dark Iron dwarves of great knowledge and power and the patriarchs of the Dark Iron nation.[1] They were the dwarves who, along with Thaurissan, summoned Ragnaros the Firelord to Azeroth.[2][3]

Though they died during the summoning and their people became enslaved by Ragnaros as a result, they seem to think that coming of the Firelord is a blessing.[4][5][6]

Dungeon Journal

Centuries ago, sorcerer-thane Thaurissan and seven of his most powerful Dark Iron allies accidentally summoned Ragnaros into Azeroth and damned their entire clan to enslavement. Although the Seven perished during the ritual, their restless spirits still linger in Blackrock Depths, cursed to serve their elemental master and the current Dark Iron ruler.
