The Vrykul are a race of half-giant warriors native to the Howling Fjord located in southeastern Northrend. It is said that, in ancient times, that they've inhabited the land, founding a vast and prosperous civilization. Then one day, without warning or explanation, they vanished, leaving behind only deserted villages and abandoned temples. Due to the settlement of Valgarde, the vrykul have recently returned. These formidable warriors have begun attacking Horde and Alliance settlements, and many of them are pouring out of the fortress of Utgarde Keep, not far from Valgarde. The vrykuls' motives and their whereabouts for the past several thousand years remain a mystery. Inside Utgarde Keep, the Dragonflayer clan builds massive engines of war and trains proto-dragons to act as steeds for their raids. Loyal to the slumbering King Ymiron, rumors abound that they serve the Lich King. They are dark and vampiric in nature, and tie into the titan creation myth that is slowly unfolding as events of the expansion take place. Utgarde Keep is their main base of operations.
