When the Fallen Hero of the Horde moved in the Blasted Lands to investigate the area under the command of the Horde, he was uncertain on what to do when he discovered the area was mostly controlled by a demon and his minions. His courier back to the horde was killed, and without any additional advice or commands he made several bad decisions that got him and his men captured or slaughtered. Him and his Lieutenant-General, Kirith, were tortured by Archmage Allistarj and their souls were used for experiments. Kirith died during the torture to only have his soul be twisted in to some sort of beast, the Fallen Hero of the Horde escaped his tormentors only to die.
- As of 8/1/2007 Kirith the Damned is immune to enslavement and banishment.
- Patch 2.3.0 (13-Nov-2007): Kirith the Damned is no longer elite, and does not have Archmage Allistarj nearby.
