|Ruler||Baine Bloodhoof, Chieftain of the United Tauren Tribes|
The new Chief of the Bloodhoof clan, Baine Bloodhoof has become the High Chieftain of the tauren race in wake of his father's death. He watches over Thunder Bluff, and over his people in an ever-darkening world. Baine can be found in the Chieftain's Tent in the eastern Main City, and is accompanied by his Honor Guards.
Hamuul Runetotem is the elder druid of Thunder Bluff, and a childhood friend of Cairne. Although he at one point left to fight on Mount Hyjal, he can always be found on Elder Rise.
The centaur were driving the tauren out of their homeland around the time of the Third War. When Thrall and his Horde arrived on the continent, an alliance was forged between the Horde and the tauren. Following the defeat of Archimonde and the end of the war, Thrall helped the tauren rout the centaur and reclaim their land. Shortly thereafter the tauren founded the city of Thunder Bluff and began the process of settling into their old surroundings and repairing the ecological damage the centaur had wrought. Thunder Bluff grows and expands at a tremendous rate.
Although some of the historically nomadic tauren probably miss their itinerant lifestyle, they are intensely proud of their permanent home and spend much of their time trying to make it better. They gladly accept the help of the orcs and trolls that help them, but are somewhat less enthusiastic at the presence of the Forsaken, whom they only grudgingly tolerate because of their membership in the Horde. Tauren place a strong emphasis on the value of life, and the unlife of the Forsaken stands as an affront to their beliefs, not to mention the less than honorable activities the Forsaken carry out.
