The Mok'Nathal clan ("The Sons of Nath") is a clan originally from the planet Draenor. The clan consists of mostly half-ogres, but apparently has members of other races as well. The clan is nearly defunct, and apparently Rexxar was one of the only remaining left on Azeroth. They have a last remaining spot in Outland — in Mok'Nathal Village in the eastern area of the Blade's Edge Mountains.
It had been thought that the mok'nathal half-ogres had been extinct on Azeroth, but after Rexxar's exploits on Azeroth, the mok'nathal are showing up again. Only one or two hundred exist in the world of Azeroth.

Outside World of WarcraftEdit
Other named half-ogres who may or may not be mok'nathal include Mag Bearmaul, Tagar Bearclaw, Gorsh Talonfang, Maxx Rocmane, Gaz Boartusk, Mok Rocksnout, and Gish Eagle Eye. They are beastmasters that can be hired from Mercenary Camps in The Frozen Throne. Horde Player's Guide confirms them to be half-ogres, and they would be mok'nathal by use of orcish terminology, although not necessarily members of the Mok'Nathal clan.
How the mok'nathal came to Azeroth at all is unknown. It isn't likely that they were brought by Gul'dan. Some, like Rexxar, might have been in the ranks of the Horde but were not in large numbers so went unnoticed.
In the novel Cycle of Hatred, Rexxar is described as "the last of the Mok'Nathal Clan", and it further says that he was "Born of orc and ogre blood both, as most of his now-defunct clan..."(DeCandido) This can imply several things, that he is one of the last of the Mok'Nathal clan and/or he may have been one of the last half-ogres of the clan, though maybe not one of the last half-ogres. The Burning Crusade references the Mok'Nathal clan as well, such as in Mok'Nathal Clan Ring.
Leoroxx, Rexxar's father, states that "being born a half-breed does not make you Mok'Nathal", implying that being Mok'Nathal is not a racial designation, but rather a philosophy. It may also be related to the fact that not all Mok'Nathal are half-ogres.
Horde Player's Guide implies that "mok'nathal" (lower-case) is the Orcish term and honorific for "half-ogre", while half-ogre is the Common name for the race.
