Hand of Vengeance Edit
The Hand of Vengeance is an organization designated just for the Forsaken forces within the Horde. Only the highest skilled apothecaries and surgeons are enrolled within the Hand of Vengeance ranks. The newer branch specializes in chemical weaponry, medical aid and many other projects that are uncharted with the Horde and Alliance due to the nature of the group.
The Hand of Vengeance were originally the group of Forsaken forces that have been sent to Northrend by Sylvanas Windrunner to bring Undercity’s vengeance upon the Lich King. Their method is and was the delivery of the latest strain of their deadly plague. They allied with the Taunka and the Warsong Offensive, under the leadership of the Horde Expedition in order to oppose the Lich King.
Their former leader, Grand Apothecary Putress lead the group of Forsaken apothecaries into Dragonblight. During the fight at the Wrathgate or better known as the battle at Angrathar Putress surprised both Horde and Alliance by launching his perfected version of the Forsaken blight on all armies. The blight was so powerful it even harmed the Lich King, causing him to retreat back into his citadel.
After the ambush from the Forsaken, Putress then lead his forces in to the Undercity where he stated he would take over and give his people what they truly deserved. He believed that Sylvanas was not doing what she said she would to give back to their Undead brothers and sisters.
The Hand of Vengeance members have branched off from Northrend, and offer their apothecary services to the Eastern Kingdoms to help against the current war within Silverpine from the Worgen strain. Though their technology and advances have been put on hold by the Horde, they continue their research privately. The new branch expands from Northrend and Eastern Kingdoms, holding most of their work and research in the familiar areas of Venomspite and Vengeance landing; areas which are still unmonitored by the rest of the Horde.
