Khanzo was an Orc blademaster of the Blackrock Clan who defended the demon gate which the lich Kel'Thuzad used to commune with the demon lord Archimonde. Arthas and Kel'Thuzad killed him along with four other Orcs guarding the demon gate. He was commander of the Blackrock Scouts. Khanzo genuinly disliked Jubei'Thos and thought him a psychotic leader, and planned to usurp his authority. Khanzo has a great hatred of the Undead, who ravaged much of his army in a violent battle.
