Dark Iron Dwarves, also known as the Dark Iron clan, were led by Thaurissan, a sorcerer-thane, in an unsuccessful attack on the Ironforge after which they were sent back into the depths of the Redridge Mountains before being attacked themselves.
Today, they serve under Ragnaros and are against both the Alliance and the Horde, though certain group called Thorium Brotherhood deals with each of the factions, resulting in a war between them and the rest of the Dark Iron Dwarves.
They are fond of ambushes and also excel in using arcane magic, while they also stay true to their dwarven heritage by using technology, guns, and bombs. Some good examples of names are Bildous, Hurnann, Ongra, Braryhme, and Undak.
