Garona was a half Orc, half Draenei assassin and spy in the service of the Horde's Shadow Council, specifically for the powerful warlock known as Gul'dan. Her human appearance, minus her green skin and pointed ears, allowed her to infiltrate the court of King Llane under the guise of spying on the Orcs. She participated in Khadgar and Anduin Lothar's raid on Karazhan to destroy the crazed wizard Medivh, but was incapacitated during the final battle after Medivh revealed that she was a double-agent. Following Medivh's defeat, Lothar brought Garona under guard to Northshire Abbey, with the intent of imprisoning her there under the watch of the Clerics. However, the Orcs raided the Abbey soon afterward to free Garona, then utterly destroyed the Abbey with their magics. Garona hid among the survivors of the order who were brought to Stormwind, and then murdered King Llane in his sleep by — reluctantly — cutting out his heart, as she had been ordered by Gul'dan.

During the orcish occupation of Draenor, many Draenei were raped by the orcish soldiers, and Garona was the product of one such coupling. At the end of the war, Garona and those like her were all that remained of the Draenei. Having travelled well in all of Draenor, Garona was well-versed in the culture of both the Draenei and orcs, making her an invaluable asset to the Shadow Council, and she was inducted into the warlock-controlled Stormreaver Clan. She quickly became the Chief Interpreter of the Shadow Council, and Gul'dan's personal spy and assassin. Due to her mixed blood, however, she was eternally an outcast, and had to rely upon her wits to keep her alive in the harsh world. Upon arriving in Azeroth, Garona's experience lent a great deal to her insight with their newest foe - the humans.


She was part of a war party which attacked Medivh, and the Magus killed all of them, accept her. Garona was sent back to Gul'dan with a message for him, and the warlock returned her to Medivh, to act as a spy on the orc's behalf.


She acted as an emissary of the Horde to him, and assisted the mage in understanding the orcs. It was in Karazhan that she met Khadgar, Medivh's apprentice sent to spy on him from Dalaran. Khadgar was, at first, furious at her presence, but the Magus demanded Khadgar's respect. Over time, a begrudging trust was forged between the two. Garona and Khadgar continually rebuked the other's race, and defended their own from assault. They learned from each other, and soon began to suspect that Medivh was keeping secrets from both of them.


Together, they eventually discovered that Medivh was, in fact, the man who had brought the orcs into Azeroth, and uncovered his plans of murder and deceit, and that he was truly Sargeras, the fallen Titan.


They fled to Stormwind, where Garona met Llane and Lothar, who accepted her despite her orcish heritage. They then gathered a small war party and raided Karazhan. After searching about the tower, they found Medivh, who unleashed all the powers of Tirisfal and Sargeras combined against them. When Garona tried to attack him, he sent a numbing psionic blast into her mind. In the ensuing battle, she disappeared as Medivh was killed.


In the months that followed, Garona became a trusted confidante to King Llane. She reported to him the inner workings of the Horde and how he could use it to his advantage. But, she was still ultimately working for the Stormreaver, and was sent on a mission to kill Llane. With a heavy heart, she carved out his. But Gul'dan was in a coma after Medivh's death.


Immediately, Doomhammer used the situation to his advantage, killing Blackhand. His spies found Garona, and tortured her, almost to death, until she finally revealed the secret location of Shadow Council. The Council was destroyed, and the Warlocks slain.


Garona's fate hereafter is uncertain.


The culmination of these plans will involve the uniting of all the Orcish clans – armies, Warlocks and Necromancers alike – to bring about the eventual destruction of the human race.
The Age of Chaos is now at hand...


The fact that I am of both Orc[/Draenei] and Human lineage, combined with the skills and schooling I have acquired from my journeys, has elevated me to the position I now hold. —Garona, Chief Interpreter to the Shadow Council
