A mighty warrior, he is responsible for uniting the Tauren tribes (including the Bloodhoof, the Grimtotem, and the Runetotem) to fight against the Centaur, their ancestral enemy who had driven them to the brink of extinction. Cairne's trust in Thrall (Warchief of the Horde) led the Tauren to be the second non-orc race to join the Horde since its reformation (The jungle trolls being the first). Years ago, when the Tauren lived near the shores of the Great Sea in the Barrens, Thrall and Cairne first fought together against these invading centaur; their victory secured Cairne's trust in Thrall. Hearing of the Tauren's plight, Thrall vowed to escort the dying Tauren to the fertile plains of Mulgore. To repay his debt to Thrall, Cairne told the orc warchief of an Oracle that lived high in the Stonetalon Mountains. After they scaled the mountain, the Oracle of Stonetalon told Thrall, along with Cairne and the humans' leader Jaina Proudmoore, that an alliance between the three was necessary to crush the demonic Burning Legion. Cairne accepted the alliance (partially as a way to repay his debt to Thrall) and, as an ally to the Horde, Cairne led the Tauren in the last struggle against their demonic foes. The Tauren proved to be an outstanding ally and were pivotal in the final stages of the battle. Once the Burning Legion was defeated, Cairne helped Thrall to establish the Orcish capital city of Orgrimmar, located in Durotar, before departing with his people for the plains of Mulgore, the Taurens' new home. Ever since his placement as leader of the united Tauren, Magatha Grimtotem, the "Elder Crone" and Matriarch of the Grimtotem clan, has constantly challenged Cairne's rule, arguing that she is the only one fit to rule the Tauren people. 17th Century Brazilian Tapuia A warrior is a person habitually engaged in warfare. ...
