Neeru, pre-Cataclysm.

Neeru Fireblade has perhaps the most dangerous position of any Burning Blade member: He sits under Thrall's nose in Orgrimmar, claiming to be a warlock who aids the orc leader, but really working to do the Burning Blade’s bidding right in the heart of the Horde. He leads the Burning Blade regiment that inhabits a cave complex just outside of Orgrimmar, and they work to watch the Horde’s movement — and see if Thrall plans to move against them before they have a sufficient defense.

Neeru is one of the youngest Burning Blade members, and still in his healthy prime — instead of corrupted and twisted by years of fel magic. Since he wasn’t in the First War, and only tasted the end of the Second War, Klass Metalfist doesn’t trust him as far as he could spit a dead rat. He put Neeru in charge of the orcs in Durotar, but there are a handful of warlocks who know they must watch Neeru in turn. Neeru is fed carefully modified information in case he does cave in to Thrall. If Klass has his ultimate wish, Thrall will swallow the misinformation, then kill Neeru as a traitor, fulfilling two goals.

As Neeru is not a warlock from the original Shadow Council, he isn’t a gnarled horror.[1]

In World of Warcraft

Neeru Fireblade is an orc quest giver located in the Cleft of Shadow

[47, 50]

in the orcish city of Orgrimmar. He can be found in the structure

[60, 50]

across from the Dark Earth hut. Prior to the Cataclysm, he was the leader of the Burning Blade, and sent unaware adventurers into Ragefire Chasm to test the strength of the Searing Blade cultists to see if they were truly worthy of being on his side. It is unclear what his role in the cult is now, and is presumed dead after Garrosh purged the Cleft of Shadow.

Judging by the last name and how much younger Neeru looks compared to Xerash Fireblade, he might be Xerash's son.
