The Hand of Vengeance, is a group of Forsaken forces that have been sent to Northrend by Sylvanas Windrunner to bring Undercity's vengeance upon the Lich King. Their method is the delivery of the latest strain of their deadly Plague. They have allied with The Taunka and the Warsong Offensive, under the leadership of the Horde Expedition in order to oppose the Lich King. Due to the events that took place in Northrend, they were under constant watch by the Kor'Kron Guard up until the second Battle for the Undercity, which liberated the Undercity and the Forsaken from their Kor'kron Overseers.

<The Hand of Vengeance> itself expands from Northrend, and although it hosts most of its dealings in familiar places such as Venomspite and Vengeance Landing, the organization has branched off from the original group in Northrend and offers their apothecary and guardian services to the Eastern Kingdoms to help in the Alliance-Horde War in the Eastern Kingdoms.

Though their technology and advances have been put on hold by the Horde in the past, after the fall of Vol'jin Lady Sylvanas Windrunner was given the mantle of Warchief of the Horde. As a result, the Hand of Vengeance has once again been given full jurisdiction and the go-ahead to retaliate against any and all enemies of the Forsaken, with a deadly efficiency in the form of the notorious concoction known as the Forsaken Blight.

History Edit



The Hand of Vengeance were originally the group of Forsaken forces that have been sent to Northrend by Sylvanas Windrunner to bring Undercity’s vengeance upon the Lich King. Their method is and was the delivery of the latest strain of their deadly plague. They allied with the Taunka and the Warsong Offensive, under the leadership of the Horde Expedition in order to oppose the Lich King. Their former leader, Grand Apothecary Putress lead the group of Forsaken apothecaries into Dragonblight. During the fight at the Wrathgate or better known as the battle at Angrathar Putress surprised both Horde and Alliance by launching his perfected version of the Forsaken blight on all armies. The blight was so powerful it even harmed the Lich King, causing him to retreat back into his citadel.

After the ambush from the Forsaken, Putress then lead his forces in to the Undercity where he stated he would take over and give his people what they truly deserved. He believed that Sylvanas was not doing what she said she would to give back to their Undead brothers and sisters.

The Eastern Kingdoms division of the Hand of Vengeance has branched off from Northrend, and offer their apothecary services to the Eastern Kingdoms to help against the current war within Silverpine from the Worgen strain. Though their technology and advances have previously been put on hold by the Horde, they continue their research now that the immediate Kor'kron threat has been dealt with. The new branch expands from Northrend and Eastern Kingdoms, holding most of their work and research in the familiar areas of Venomspite and Vengeance Landing; areas which are still unmonitored by the rest of the Horde.

Now that the drums of war between the Alliance and Horde sound once again, Lady Sylvanas Windrunner has given the specific instruction to begin including trustworthy members of the other Horde races in the innerworkings of the Apothecarium, specifically within the art of Plaguebringing. With the fall of the Undercity and the destruction of Lordaeron, the Hand's main goals have shifted to defending the remaining holdings that the Forsaken still retain within Silverpine and Hillsbrad.
