Dethorin was the original wielder of the Killmaim, after it appeared out of the ground in response to his cries. With it, he killed his lady Allurana and her lover for whom had been the cause of his woe and the Killmaim's appearance. After killing the two, he deposed of the Killmaim by throwing it in the ocean. Nothing is known of what he did after this but his non-appearance in World of Warcraft suggests his probable death.
