World of Warcraft: The Comic

Thargas Anvilmar was sent by King Magni Bronzebeard to meet Varian "Lo'Gosh" Wrynn, Valeera Sanguinar and Broll Bearmantle at Menethil Harbor and escort them back to Ironforge. After they landed, Thargas followed them to an inn where he helped the three companions fight a band from the Defias Brotherhood. He then told Varian and his friends about another "King Varian" who has returned to Stormwind.

When Thargas, Varian, Broll Bearmantle, and Valeera Sanguinar were traveling on their way to Ironforge; they were attacked by a group of Dark Iron dwarves. When the heroes defeated them; their leader, Gunnar Flyntrock, told Thargas that his brother, Hjalmar Anvilmar, was captured by the Dark Iron dwarves at Thandol Span. The company then decided to go and rescue him.

At Thandol Span, they found Hjalmar held captive by Dark Iron dwarves under the command of Balgaras the Foul. Balgaras intended to kill Hjalmar by melting the Helm of the Anvilmars onto his face. However, Thargas cut his hand off before he could cast a fire spell, and Hjalmar was thus set free. With his other hand, Balgaras lit one of the explosives. Hjalmar jumped in front of the blast to prevent it from killing his brother, and was mortally injured by the explosion. Before he died, he gave the Helm of the Anvilmars to Thargas telling him to save Thandol Span. In Hjalmar's name, Thargas killed many Dark Irons and helped save the span.[2]

Afterwards, he returned to Ironforge where the group decided to investigate the disappearance of Marshal Windsor in the Blackrock Depths. Thargas then aided him in driving off Onyxia from Stormwind and assaulting Onyxia's Lair. After Onyxia was slain, Thargas departed with the Stormwind soldiers who were returning to the Eastern Kingdoms so that he could sort out the affairs involving his brother's death and his own estates. Varian thanked Thargas for his aid and friendship and told him that Anvilmar could always count on Stormwind as an ally.
