Overlord Runthak was an orc serving the Horde. He later joined the True Horde.
Runthak replaced Varok Saurfang as he left to Northrend in announcing the death of  Nefarian. After the betrayal of Varimathras and Putress, Sylvanas and Forsaken refugees had to escape to Orgrimmar. During that time Runthak was seen calming Orgrimmar's citizens.
During the Siege of Orgrimmar, he's found in the Drag as a level 92 elite alongside several Hellscream Demolishers waiting to attack anyone that approaches. He was killed by the Alliance and Horde rebels.
