It's maybe worth noting that in the novel The Shattering, Golden describes a beach-battle scene between Horde forces and kvaldir. The Horde warriors, frightened by the "spirits of the sea", have their courage bolstered when the kvaldir are revealed to be nothing more than regular vrykul made up to look like dead ocean spirits, a la The 13th Warrior (despite the fact that in-game, they very clearly dissolve into salty bits when killed.) It was an interesting choice, but it seemed kind of out of character for Golden, who usually goes by what we see in the game (similarly, although the Wendol in the 13th Warrior were revealed to be regular men all Scooby-Doo'd up with animal skins and such, they were originally conceived in Michael Crichton's Eaters of the Dead as feral neanderthals. /tangent)

It was my belief that in Wrath, when we arrived, we got rid of all the Kvaldir in Northrend. However, there were still plenty of Vrykul lying around who thought those Kvaldir people had a good thing going, and since they weren't around anymore (thanks to us), they wouldn't mind if they took their idea, right? Right. (Maybe.) So these wanna-be Vrykul dress up as Kvaldir, have a couple alchemist make some smokey mist, attempt to scare off some Horde forces, and then get their faces beaten in something fierce. That's what I hope, any-who.
