These are likely supposed to be representing the mercenaries that Arthas had hired to burn his ships in the "Dissension" mission of Warcraft III. He then betrayed these mercenaries and had his men kill them. However the mercenaries in Warcraft III were composed of Ice Trolls and an ogre, there were no humans within their ranks. So these are either different mercenaries or a continuity error.
