Yes... I will build a new Horde... I will forge you into an unstoppable weapon... You will be the scourge of a hundred worlds... The might of a Legion...
— Gul'dan


Gul'dan is a powerful orcish shaman and former head of the orcish Horde. After betraying his people and abandoning his shaman path, he followed the orders of Kil'Jaeden and invaded Azeroth with the Horde in tow, empowered by Fel energy. He is by and large considered to be the most powerful shaman to have existed at the time.
