"The beginning of wisdom is the statement 'I do not know.' The person who cannot make that statement is one who will never learn anything. And I have prided myself on my ability to learn." - Warchief Thrall.
"Live by these words: Lok'tar Ogar! Victory.. or death!" - Warchief Garrosh Hellscream.
"This world don't give us nothing. It be our lot to suffer... and our duty to fight back.
This Horde be our family! We don't always see eye-to-eye. We come to blows before. But when we work together - ah - there's nothing this Horde can't do." - Warchief Vol'jin.
"Ours is a cycle of hatred; alliances forged and broken. We have paid the price for sharing this world and we have forgotten what makes us strong." - Warchief Sylvanas Windrunner.
"The Horde endures." - High Overlord Saurfang.
The Vol'kar Legion is a special operations regiment within the Horde military. It was forged shortly after the Siege of Orgrimmar to replace the nefarious Kor'kron Legion, and to help promote total assimilation, to discourage the "master-race" ideals within the Horde. More importantly, it allows any race within its ranks so long as they call themselves a son or daughter of the Horde (if it is lore friendly, of course!). While disapproving of what the Kor'kron underneath the young Hellscream's rule stood for, the Vol'kar serves in very similar fashion. Their missions, plainly, are:
1) Protect the Warchief,
2) Enforce their command,
3) Defend the Horde in its entirety, including all of its lands, holdings, and stakes, and carry out any will made by the Warchief,
4) To never, ever forget the Siege.

PREMISE/HISTORY (As of January 2018)
The triumphant heroes of the Horde returned from Argus, securing the safety and freedom of not just the Horde, but Azeroth itself. Over the course of the Third Legion War, the Vol’kar have risen through the ranks of the Horde, faithfully serving, and proving themselves to be one of the finest units that the Banshee Queen commands. Battle-hardened, and well tested, not even the forces of Dark Titans may halt them in their advance. Several post-Legion campaigns and missions later, all of the soldiers within the Vol’kar are uncertain of what the Horde may turn to. Only time may tell what might become of the red banner, now being led by The Dark Lady, Sylvanas Windrunner.
NOW (As of June, August 2018)
WAR- An excerpt from the command relay, given to each and every Legionnaire as the War of the Thorns commenced.
WAR HAS BEGUN. THE TIME FOR INACTION IS OVER. THE VOL'KAR SHALL BE THE FIRST INTO DARKSHORE AT THE WARCHIEF'S BEHEST.
Time for talk is over. The Burning Legion has been defeated. The Old Gods have been dissuaded. The only ones that are left standing on this very planet are ourselves. From shore to shore, the Vol’kar shall be the ones to spearhead the new rise of the Horde Empire underneath the sphere of Kalimdor. Beit under the reign of the Banshee Queen, or the command of another, the Vol’kar seeks no glory, and they seek no fame. No true leader represents the Horde We are the Horde. While we may not know where this war shall take us, we do know why we must fight. "No task too difficult, no cost too great. The Horde shall always endure."
The Vol’kar were the first into the fray at Darkshore, and the last to leave the Siege of Undercity. All currently employed are some of the most hardened veterans the Horde has to offer. After a classified mission surrounded by espionage and blood, The Vol’kar Legion have found themselves upon the shores of Zandalar, a land rife with mystery and intrigue. Who knows what they may find in store in this ancient land?
