Many years before founding of the Iron Horde, members of the Frostwolf clan would hunt Clefthoofs in Frostfire Ridge. Durotan's mother Geyah was bitten by a drift lurker which caused her to enter a coma. Durotan's brother Ga'nar wanted to leave their mother to die but Durotan refused to do that. When Ga'nar left, Durotan and Geyah's companion Stormfang guarded her. At night, a Garn attacked them, the beast was easily killed, but Durotan knew that Garn hunt in packs. He prepared for an onslaught. Few moments later, a pack of Garn attacked them, Durotan entered the bloodlust, he killed everything that was moving, including Stormfang. In the meantime, Geyah awoke and she saw her son surrounded by the bodies of dead Garn. From that day on, Durotan wears Stormfang's fur as a reminder that even the noblest can fall under the influence of the savage within.
