Description: Gashuk is elderly for a Orc, grey beard and all, and looks befitting of a more scholarly than physical lifestyle. He is of average height and lean with toned but small muscles remaining on his old body. His skin colour is a darker green hue, full of scars both battleborn and self made. He usually stands with a slight hunch and walks with little haste unless necessary.

He has a few sets of Robes he prefers to wear; simple ancestral brown linen, blood red tribal robes and more commonly mere leathers for additional protection.

Personality: Gashuk is a deceptive Orc that shouldn't be judged by his cover, while he may have been a Warlock for the majority of his life he is deeply honourable and Orcish tradition is embedded into his every action. Whilst his power is great, it's only to serve the Horde that he strives to empower himself.

He follows a simple motto; “Instinct and Duty”, coupling his intellect with his orders to resolve most issues competently without major moral dilemmas. Deeply loyal to his Tribe and Race, Gashuk is rather cold towards other races especially the Alliance whom he will usually slay on sight.

When all is said and done though, Gashuk loves nothing more than to study, read literature from many sources and enjoys stories and poetry spoken around a campfire.

History: Gashuk was born into the Shadowmoon Clan years before Ner'zhul was deceived and lead a true orcish life among his Clan as a Shaman named Bloodfire, (due to his Om'riggor revealing an innate connection to the Fire Spirits), alongside his Father, Garrak a powerful Farseer. Garrak was Gashuk's only true friend, a mentor in all things and together the two of them served their Chieftain well. It was together then that naturally the two Orcs dabbled into Fel Magic at the will of the Chief and his Apprentice, Gul'dan. Summoning Demons, evoking Felflames and cursing the Draenei acted like a drug and soon one by one the role of Warlock overran the Shaman.

The pair of them, now known as the Felhands, grew in power and aided the Shadowmoon in magically aging Orc Children and completely lost themselves in blood lust and magik frenzy slaughtering the Draenei travelling through the Dark Portal and continuing onto the pink-skinned Humans that awaited. It was only with Garrak dead and Gashuk imprisoned in the Hammerfall Internment Camp that Gashuk started to sober up.

When Thrall saved the Orcs and lead them to new glory, Gashuk took the opportunity to mourn his Father's passing and began anew serving a new Warchief with a New Horde, but where many of his fellow Warlocks turned to Shamanism again Gashuk refused. Some would call it corruption, some would call it good sense but Gashuk devoted himself to true power- whilst respecting and encouraging Shamanism back into Orc Culture it was no longer his path and thus Gashuk continued to develop his warlockry with one major difference- no Demons.

In the years and many war campaigns since the founding of Orgimmar, Gashuk spent time finding himself and in deep study, previously his Magic had been raw and powerful, all-consuming, but it was time for it to be precise and delicate. Whilst the Horde re-emerged into the Outlands, Gashuk studied the taint his Clan had left and studied the theory behind Demonology, to know his enemy. When the Horde and Alliance struggled against the Scourge, Gashuk delved into Spiritual Magics, forms of Necromancy and Shadow Magic and when the Cataclysm struck Gashuk developed his Blood Magic incorporating the Art previously used in his Shamanism into Warlockry eventually aiding the combined forces in the Firelands where his destructive nature came forward.

It was during this time that Gashuk began to long for an immediate leader, a Chieftain, whilst he followed the Horde's Orders as much as he could during his studies it wasn't the same and whilst in hiding from the tyrant Hellscream and his Kor'kron hunting and persecuting the Horde's loyal Warlocks, Gashuk heard wind of the Red Blade Tribe and before long when the rebellion finally took Orgrimmar he sought this tribe to hopefully make a home for himself.

After time within the Wolf Pack, Gashuk slowly grew distant from his Fel Magic, the loneliness that fed his addiction to being all-powerful was sated by his tribal connections, friendships. It took the aid of the Red Blade Thur'ruk's, Sharptongue and Steelheart but Gashuk drew the line at last and filled the emptiness left by the chaotic Fel with Shadow Magic; a connection to the Void that allowed him a back door entrance into the Shadowrealms littered with Orcish Ancestral Spirits. It pained the newly named Soulfury to see his ancestors in such limbo, especially so when he was approached in dreamstates by his own father, Garrak.

It became Gashuk's main task to aid his Father in passing onto the Eternal Plains and after success, it grew apparent to the Elder that this was a new start for him, the Spirits once again approached him and forgave him for his life studying the eldritch; it was time for a new start and like his Father before him as a Farseer, Soulfury's inherited gifts of Spiritwalking begun to plague his dreams. Through them, he was set upon a new task, Soulfury left the side of his Tribe for the Cleft of Shadows. It was nothing like it once was, a shell where little to no Warlocks or Magi were after Hellscream's reign. It took weeks, but with aid, the Orc managed to build a trust again amongst Warlocks and Magi alike and establish the Cleft as a place of learning once more yet this was never meant to be a home for Gashuk.

After returning to his Tribe, Gashuk realised something. The Spirits had set him on this task for a reason, this reason was to teach Gashuk that he was not alike these Warlocks any more. The Orc had dubbed himself a Shadowmage, but that was a misconception, Gashuk was no Warlock, no Shadowmage, no. He was merely a Orc of many talents with no true title; rid of his Fel addiction, connecting once more with ancestral spirits, it was time for Soulfury to take that final step and re-connect with the Elemental Spirits and return to his heritage as a Shadowmoon Shaman. It felt like the days on Draenor were getting closer and closer with each passing moment and to Gashuk, it bore new youth and a spring in his aged step.

Death, is taken for granted, it is a gift that most Orcs get yet to die and pass into the Eternal Plains is a blessing and with his warlockry in the past, Gashuk Soulfury aims to do just that - honourably die.

Things you may know about this character:

  • Gashuk is an adept Bloodweaver and uses it not only in offensive spellcasting but for mending purposes.
  • He usually sports a ritualistic dagger rather than any other form of weaponry but does own a powerful Stave given to him by Uzguul Stormgaze.
  • Gashuk's Father was part of the powerful Stormreaver Clan, Gul'dan's personal guard! Gashuk himself didn't make the cut.
  • Gashuk is open about himself and is fierce in defending himself and his heritage.
  • Gashuk's original earned surname is Bloodfire, earned from an Om'riggor at the age of twenty. It's where his warcry, "Blood and Fire!" stems from.
  • Gashuk is slowly returning to his shamanic roots, re-connecting with the elemental spirits.
  • Gashuk's eyes glow a deeply dark black, it is known this has something to do with his ties to the ancestral spirits and his path as a Spirit Walker.

Things you may not know about this character:

  • Gashuk did specialise in three Schools of Magic; Destruction, Blood and Low Spiritual Necromancy.
  • Gashuk is deeply traditional, from getting traditional gifts for pregnant she-orcs to practicing tribal Blood Magic.
  • He would rather die than be truly fel-corrupted; for example being subject to a metamorphosis or completely losing his mind to his Craft.
