Kelkar and Zuura showed the clan their newly born daugher, Draka. As a chieftain of the clan, he blessed her. Years later, there was a large fire in the Frostwolf village when Blackhand once visited it. Blackhand saw Draka hardly able to lift a bucket of water, and took it as sign of weakness in the Frostwolf Clan. Blackhand added that If she had been born to Blackrock Clan they would have killed her. To save face Garad exiled Kelkar, Zuura and Draka to the outskirts of the village. Years later, days before the Kosh'harg festival, Garad forbade them to attend the festival.[2]

Before the formation of the Horde, he fought alongside Ga'nar against the Laughing Skull clan.[3] When Fenris vanished, Garad chose Durotan as the heir of the Frostwolf clan instead of the hot-headed Ga'nar.[4]

He was killed in a battle against a group of ogres and a gronn shortly before Kil'jaeden convinced the orcs to make war against the draenei.[5] He was succeeded as chieftain by his son, Durotan, who would be the only voice of dissent against the corruption of the orcish people.
