The Drakkari tribe is a tribe of ice trolls that founded the nation of Zul'Drak in eastern Northrend, with the city of Gundrak as their capital. They seem to be a hardy people, persisting through hostilities from the empire of Azjol-Nerub and now the Scourge.
Unlike some other troll tribes, a group of ice trolls still retains a portion of its kingdom: the Drakkari live in Zul'Drak in Northrend. These are larger and stronger than ice trolls elsewhere, and indeed almost all other trolls, averaging 8 feet in height.
The Drakkari tribe is one of a few small tribes that were driven out of civilized lands long ago for their extremely violent and cruel behavior. These barbarous trolls settled far in the north of ancient Kalimdor, adapted to their snowy environment, and formed the nation of Zul'Drak. After the Sundering, the Drakkari tribe continued to live in what had become the bitterly cold continent of Northrend. To this day, the ruins of the Drakkari civilization are scattered throughout the eastern side of Northrend.
Like Zandalari trolls, the Drakkari average eight feet in height: significantly larger than all other documented trolls. There the resemblance ends. Unlike the peaceful Zandalar tribe, Drakkari trolls are a ruthless and savage people who delight in battle and have no interest in the pursuit of knowledge. Hunting is also a popular pastime for Drakkari trolls because raw meat is the primary staple of their diet. Some Drakkari Trolls, however, such as Gan'jo, contest that the tribe once had been more civilized, but that they had become a lost people, fierce and savage. For how long this has been the case is anyone's guess.
Regardless of its combat skills, the Drakkari tribe recognises the might of the Lich King and does its best to avoid the growing forces of the Scourge. Even so, the Lich King has raised a number of ice trolls into undeath and forced them to serve him. The Scourge has also recently taken possession of Drak'Tharon Keep, an ancient Drakkari citadel. War between the Scourge and Drakkari may be inevitable, and the outcome would surely be disastrous for the trolls.
