Shadows of the Horde
According to Khal'ak, Vilnak'dor was to Rastakhan what Vol'jin was to Thrall, and more. While on Pandaria, Vilnak'dor was very eager to please his mogu hosts: he wore mogu clothing tailored to fit his expansive girth, dyed his hair white and curled it in the mogu style, and seemingly even tried growing his fingernails into talons.
When Khal'ak presented Vol'jin before him, Vilnak'dor was initially dismissive of Vol'jin to the point of asking why he shouldn't just kill Vol'jin right then and there. However, Vol'jin was quick to point out that doing so would ensure that the Darkspear would never join the Zandalari and that the Horde would be an open enemy of the Zandalari. The Darkspear chieftain was able to further tempt Vilnak'dor by pointing that out that he could, in fact, bring the Darkspear into the Zandalari where his king had failed. Despite pointing out that Vol'jin's status as a shadow hunter and his own political assessment would be valuable to the Zandalari's efforts, Khal'ak privately informed Vol'jin that Vilnak'dor would quickly have Vol'jin eliminated after the Darkspear were brought into the fold and use forged documents to make himself or one of his puppets as the heir of the Darkspear. In turn, Vol'jin realized that should he accept the Zandalari, he knew that he would have to kill Vilnak'dor.
However, both points turned moot when Vol'jin decided to reject the Zandalari and with the help of his allies escaped the Isle of Thunder. Angered at Khal'ak for letting Vol'jin deceive her and trying to prevent Warlord Kao from launching his own strike on the Shado-Pan, since their destruction by the Mogu could make them question why they need Zandalari aid, Vilnak'dor decided that Khal'lak would lead a force of 500 to deal with the Shado-Pan once and for all. Before Khal'lak left, Vilnak'dor warned Khal'ak that Warlord Kao would see her as an enemy and would poison the Thunder King against her and if she didn't deliver the Shado-Pan and Vol'jin as promised, then he would deliver her own head to him.
Battle for Azeroth
Vilnak'dor led a mogu invasion of Warport Rastari in Zuldazar alongside Warlord Kao, to claim territory the mogu had been promised by Zul. After Kao's death, Vilnak'dor revealed that the attack was only a distraction to keep the Zandalari warriors away from Rastakhan as Zul began a coup.

Since Khal'ak indicated that Vilnak'dor was a close advisor to Rastakhan, he may at one point have been a member of the Zanchuli Council. If he was a member, his title of general likely means that he held the position that was later given to Jakra'zet after the Pandaria campaign. This may be why he went from being notably loyal to the king to eventually betraying him.
