The Seeker: Mankrik and Olgra

The Seeker: Mankrik and Olgra

Love the stories in the wonderful Warcraft Universe? Do you take your time to read all of that quest text? Do you spend as much time reading about the game as you do playing it? Then The Seeker is the place for you. Each fortnight TheDr will go over some of the wonderful lore in the Warcraft Universe for your reading pleasure.

I swore that nothing would stir me to take up this blade again…

I was a fool

Mankrik is an orc warrior. He laid down his sword after a lengthy career battling for the horde and became a farmer. That was until one day when the Quilboar attacked his farm. He fought valiantly with his wife, Olgra, by his side. The Quilboar numbers overcame his wife and at seeing her fall he went into a bloodlust. Unfortunately it wasn’t enough and their numbers overcame him as well.

He awoke later in the crossroads with a druid tending his wounds. The druid had come across his unconscious form lying on the gold road and had taken him back to the crossroads to heal him. Mankrik demanded to know what had happened to his wife but no-one knew. As soon as he could stand he would scout the horizon at the crossroads looking for her. He asked many travellers and adventures if they had seen or heard word of her, none had.

Until one day an adventurer came across the body of his wife Olga. After being told of the news Mankrik ventured out to collect the still form of his wife and take her home. Mankrik never returned to the crossroads, he instead now lives at Grol’dom Farm where he has erected a small monument to her.

He spends his days now hunting down Quilboar and asking others to do the same. Yet no matter how many he kills it is never enough to sate his bloodthirst.
