Born to an aristocratic family of Hillsbrad (his younger brother being Ellington), Haplo was thrown out at a young age for dabbling in the dark arts. But Haplo himself doesn't care to remember his past, what he did when left his family, or even when he became undead. He was recruited to The Pride by Calam Stormrunner, one of the only Taurens he can tolerate, for reasons which he doesn't care to elaborate on. He carries a seething hatred for all life, especially Alliance and Trolls. Haplo is overall an unpleasant guy, and spends most of his time in his demon studies.
