Drann was a half-orc that had teamed up with Captain Dumont, Stonehoof, a tauren, Feulia, a half-Kaldorei archer, Makil, a goblin tinker, and two siblings, Renmar and Talario who were human mages. The companions had stolen a magic jar from a centaur camp in the Barrens after hearing of a legend. According to the legend, the jar would unlock untold riches in an ancient shrine nearby.
They fought their way through centaur and quilboars to the shrine. Dumont had lost his life in the process.
They found an ancient Darnassian dialect carved on the shrine that was the same one carved onto the jar. A warning was placed on the shrine stating, "...sealing them away so that our world might know new life." ( )
He helped clear away the corpses and the rubble discovering an altar underneath. After the brother and sister mages had completed a ritual, Drann shattered the jar with his fist.
They had accidentally unleashed a towering fire elemental who promised to take them to his home in the Elemental Plane where they would be "rewarded". The elemental then began to rip a hole in the fabric of the universe. The landscape of the Barrens was pulled away to reveal the Firelands. Makil, believing that this wasn't any reward that they would want, asked Drann if they could all go home. ( )
