Kalaran is a mighty drake of the black dragonflight. Initially, he appears in the guise of a human known as Kalaran Windblade, a level 55 quest giver located southeast of Thorium Point in the contested territory of Searing Gorge.
He tells a tale (fabricated, of course) of his father having been slaughtered by Dark Iron dwarves, and urges adventurers who cross his path to help him avenge his death.
When the quests are completed, he turns into his true form of Kalaran the Deceiver and yells "The legion of Blackrock comes, dwarflings! We shall scorch the earth and set fire to the heavens. None shall survive..." indicating he is one of the drakes who are with Nefarian — due to the fact that Nefarian constantly fights with the Dark Iron dwarves specifically for control of Blackrock Spire.
Fortunately for those who take his quests, he refrains from killing them after revealing his true form. He even commands his servant to throw them some "trinkets" such as , and , before flying off to scorch the earth and set fire to the heavens as mentioned above.
He starts the following quests:
