Thane Korth'azz is one of the Four Horsemen of Naxxramas. He holds the power of flame.[1]

Korth'azz is a fallen dwarf paladin. There is speculation that he fell to the Scourge after Uther's death, as he might have been a leading member of the Knights of the Silver Hand. This is at least partially confirmed when Alexandros Mograine refers to Korth'azz as "one of Uther's men".[2]

Korth'azz likely represents the "Pale Rider of Death", based on his light green color scheme.

Thane Korth'azz witnessed the enslaving of Alexandros Mograine by Kel'thuzad. He later fought against the party Darion Mograine led into Naxxramas. He traded blows (and insults) with Brannigan Thundermaul until Brannigan was slain by Sir Zeliek. He then struck Castillian in the back of the head and used his fire magic to free Highlord Mograine from Castillian's freezing spell.
