Garona is a fictional female Orc in the Warcraft television series who was portrayed on screen by Paula Patton. Garona Halforcen is a female Orc from the film Warcraft. Her class is that of Rogue so she'll sneak up on people and slit their throats. In the game storyline, Garona features prominently in World of Warcraft - Warlords of Draenor but little mention is made of her before. There is this article dated 2007 on Engadget but having played the game since Oct 2007, I've not heard of the character before WoD. She is said to be half Orc and half-Draenei but she doesn't have any Draenei features, no hoofs, her skins is fully green. The film is supposed to chronicle the first encounter between Humans, Elves, etc and Orcs so if she was actually half-Orc and half-Elf, how is she so old.
In the film, Garona during a night talk with Anduin Lothar and Khadgar reveals that her name means "Cursed" in Orc. Garona in the same conversation reveals that her mother was burned alive for giving birth to her.
In the film, Garona is torn between the two factions, the Horde and the Alliance. She looks like she is trying to broker a peace deal with one faction of Orcs and a human group of soldiers led by Anduin Lothar
At the end of the film, King Llane Wrynn tells Garona that she must kill him which she does reluctantly. By killing Llane, the end of the first encounter battle will end.
In the game, Garona appeared in the beta for the original version of the game but she disappeared shortly after, not to reappear again until World of Warcraft - Cataclysm when she appears in Bloodgulch in the Twilight Highlands. Then she goes missing again and returns in World of Warcraft - Warlords of Draenor where she plays a major role. In the game, she becomes a legendary follower which you can collect during the legendary ring quest line. During the expansion, she is under the control of Gul'dan which you need to free her from.
