Durotan - Warcraft

Durotan from Warcraft played by Toby Kebbell.

Durotan is a fictional male Orc in the Warcraft Warcraft series who was played on screen by Toby Kebbell. Durotan is an Orc that is held in the highest regard by his fellow Orcs and other member races of the Horde. They named a zone in the continent of Kalimdor after him, Durotar. At the northern end of that zone is the Orc and Horde capital city of Orgrimmar. In the game, he is the leader of the Frostwolf clan and when players travel back in time to just before the Horde invasion, Durotan sides with the players instead of the Iron Horde. Durotan is friendly to both sides.

Betrayed by Orgrim Doomhammer

Durotan accepts that war is in Orc blood but he thinks that with the human's help, he can bring peace to his followers. During an assault on a group of Stormwind soldiers that included Anduin Lothar, he passes Anduin a note that he wants peace talks. However when the meeting occurs, Orgrim Doomhammer betrays Durotan and ruins the meeting between Durotan and King Llane Wrynn.

In the game, when the Burning Legion as controlled on the ground by Gul'dan, they launch their attack on Azeroth, Durotan seemingly sides with the humans led by Anduin Lothar. Although the Orcs have war in their blood, Durotar wants to change it all and become more peaceful.

Durotans Family

Durotan is married to Draka who at the time of going through the portal is pregnant with their first child. Durotan wants peace and he wants to bring up his child. Durotan takes Draka through the portal and when their child is born, the baby looks like its stillborn. Gul'dan infuses the baby with Fel and brings the child to life. Fel is the name of the magic that is used by the people in Warcraft. Fel power is created from the life force of others. Warlocks use fel the most whereas Mages use arcane.

Challenge to Gul'dan

Durotan eventually decides it is time that Durotan is finished. Durotan challenges Gul'dan to a Mok'gara fight which Gul'dan reluctantly agrees to. Durotan would go on to overpower Gul'dan before Gul'dan uses Fel power to cheat by stealing the life force from Durotan much to all the Orcs displeasure.
