I know so little on the Tauren's background. By virtue of the quests and instances you tend to undertstand at least a little background on most of the other races. But I find Taurens are skimped on. How did they come to be? What were the exact circumstances of their alliance with the Orcs?

Okay, the orcs washed up on the shores of the Barrens, since Medivh told Thrall to, and you don't disobey a guy that turns into a bird.The tauren tribes were not as organized and gathered as they are now, they were scattered, wandering, and pretty much the only thing they all agreed on was that they hated the centaur.Which was cool, because the centaur had a habit of stabbing them repeatedly in the face. And they were pretty good at it, driving the tauren near extinction. So, Cairne meets our crazy green friend, and they get along pretty well! Thrall's a shaman, the tauren like shamans, everybody's happy.With the help of the orcs, the tauren cut a bloody swathe through legions of centaur, taking Mulgore for their own and kicking the ugly horse-people out.For giving them a homeland, and since the orcs are honorable and so respected, Cairne follows Thrall's decisions, and has joined the Horde.
