General Drakkisath is a minor antagonist in the online game World of Warcraft.
Little is known about Drakkisath's history other than that he is one of Nefarian's top military commanders. His goal was to wage war on, and eventually eliminate, the armies and followers of Ragnaros the Firelord, who occupied the same mountain caverns as Drakkisath did. During his own war against Ragnaros, a small group of adventurers invaded his home and defeated his underlings, making their way for his throne room. In a final battle, Drakkisath's Chromatic Guards were killed and the General was finally slain, bringing an end to Nefarian's most important servant.
Drakkisath is a cruel and brutal warrior, as well as a brilliant strategist. He knows exactly how to command his armies and how to defeat his enemies. Although Drakkisath would prefer to lead his armies in the front lines, he knows how important he is to Nefarian's efforts against the Firelord and remains in his throne room, safe from the fury of battle. When forced into battle, he will ensure that no allies are in radius for his massive Flame Burst ability, and will bring down foes from affar with his ranged fire-based abilities.
