Karrus was a legendary human warrior. He wielded the Arcanite Shield of Karrus during the first campaign against the orcs in Lordaeron. It was often said that no arrow made could fell Karrus, and indeed, he was finally brought down by a swarming attack of orcish foot soldiers. Although he fell in battle, his shield was preserved, and since that time several examples of its type have been created. All bear his name and a bas relief image of his face in reverence to this great hero.
