The Kolkar clan is one of five clans of centaur native to Desolace, having settlements in the Barrens and Desolace. The founding leader (Khan) of the Kolkar was , an alleged son of and and first of the centaur Khans, though currently they are lead by and his officers.
During the tauren struggle to reclaim their ancestral lands of Mulgore leading up to the Third War, the Kolkar of the Barrens were the main aggressor preventing the nomads from reaching their homeland. It is also likely that the Galak clan fought against the tauren during these same events. After the tauren and their orc allies' victory over the hostile centaur, the Khans were left with nothing more than further hate towards these invading enemies, throwing all three races into an endless struggle to maintain land.
The Kolkar have a presence in all three oases in the Barrens: The Stagnant Oasis, Lushwater Oasis, and The Forgotten Pools. Command tents and small camps can be found scattered all over the edges of the lush overgrowth surrounding these pools, identifiable by their large tribal flags. Patrols of centaur and semi-domesticated hyena control the perimeters of these settlements.
, the de facto leader of the Kolkar, makes his home at the Lushwater Oasis, near the Wailing Caverns.
The Kolkar clan also has representation in the traditional home of the centaur, Desolace. is the leader of the Kolkar Village located in the eastern parts of the zone near the mountain range bordering Mulgore. It is likely this was historically the first Kolkar settlement, founded by Khan Kolk, due to its size and proximity to Maraudon.
The restless spirit of Khan Kolk can still be found wandering the halls of Maraudon.
The Kolkar have recently set up a small forward outpost in the orcish region of Durotar, Kolkar Crag, which serves as headquarters for planned assaults against the Valley of Trials, Sen'jin Village, and even the capital city of Orgrimmar . Disruption of their raids is a duty left to inexperienced members of the Horde, with the aid of Lar Prowltusk's leadership.
