Zaela is a Dragonmaw orc first encountered by Horde players at Dragonmaw Port

in the Twilight Highlands. Like many of her people, she is appalled by the actions of her warchief, Mor'ghor, since his return from Outland. His rule is tyrannical and bloody; to top this, he repeatedly kills the Horde envoys sent to him. Zaela becomes a leader of the resistance, assisting Horde players in arming her people and eventually killing her leader.
