"In the un-charted mountains of Stranglethorn Vale lived a tribe once called the Shadowtusks, they were a extreme tribe in mastering the arts of Voodoo, Hexing, and becoming great Shadow Hunters. The tribe was not the largest, but it was great in its cunning skills of fighting and the connection to the Loa. In Hakkar's most recent attempt to re-control the Trolls, the Shadowtusks did not find it suitable for them to follow such a Loa that only causes famine, terror, and corruption in the tribes. Although he may grant such great strength and Voodoo strength to some individual Trolls, he is not something tolerated by the Shadowtusk Tribe.
The Chief of the Shadowtusk Tribe, Kiiluway, decided to stop the reign of terror that Hakkar is creating. He had planned to sneak into Zul'Gurub where Hakkar stood at night with the strongest of his Tribe. It was only fifteen Trolls while the majority of his Tribe stayed in the village south of Zul'Gurub. During the night of the attack, one of the members of the Shadowtusks betrayed his brethren and told Jin'do, The Chief of the Hakkari Tribe, what was going to happen. The plan was foiled, the brave warriors fought off waves of Trolls inside Zul'Gurub. Many have died, but only three stood last, and were taken in captive, Kiiluway, Karo'jin, and Zul'rah. They were planned to be sacrifices to Hakkar. days have passed inside a prison cell, yet all the sudden Kiiluway told both Karo'jin and Zul'rah to escape while he distracts the guards. The two escape while Kiiluway is executed on the spot.
Returning to Shadowtusk Village, they find only burned huts and corpses laying all over the village. Some were tied to a post and burned to death, children were drowned in the lake that stood next to the Village. Karo'jin and Zul'rah were devastated, as they went into hiding for three years. As time rolls by like a pindrop, Zul'rah practiced his magic and waited for something to happen, he had meditated, trying to contact spirits of the lost Tribe. During Zul'rah's preparations, Karo'jin practiced his deception and agility as a Shadow Hunter, he too connected with the Spirits. During one day, the sun shifted, and a solar eclipse had occurred . The two pondered at it, then turning to their sides they found the Spirit of Kiiluway, he spoke to them as if he were a deity, not just a spirit, but a Loa. He was Kiiluway, Loa of the Prophecy. He told both Zul'rah and Karo'jin that the time of the Shadowtusks fall is over, they shall re-surface to the world and show their existence. They were told to create a Clan that was to unite the Tribes of Azeroth under a single banner, the banner of the Shadowtusk Clan."
