Rhonin and Vereesa and their half-elven twin sons, and Turalyon and Alleria Windrunner and their temporally anomalous half-elf paladin son Arathor way "hi," too.It's basically been established that the following races can definitely interbreed:Humans and elves.Orcs and ogres.Orcs and draenei.Humans and orc/draenei hybrids which sort of implies that orcs and humans and humans and draenei are not entirely out of the biological question.As to numbers...? The Mok'Nathal clan of half-orc/half-ogres was, at one point, much larger than it is now, having dwindled away due to a number of issues. The commonality of half-elves is a frequent and hotly debated topic -- some roleplayers allege a massive institutional prejudice against half-elves that is nowhere evidenced in legitimate Lore sources beyond Rhonin's whinypants internal narration at the beginning of the War of the Ancients trilogy, a prejudice that keeps their numbers low. (Your humble authoress suspects a holdover attitude from Krynn awkwardly imported to Azeroth and generally ignored thereafter.) One suspects that places where large quel'dorei expatriate communities exist (i.e., Stormwind) or where the quel'dorei/sin'dorei helped found the community/still maintain a presence (i.e., Dalaran), the numbers of half-elves are much higher, as are the numbers of people who possess distant elven ancestors. There are at least two orc-draenei hybrids in Lore -- Garona Halforcen and Lantresor of the Blade -- and the background of both implies that there were once more, though the majority have been killed, possibly deliberately purged.
