Lore[edit | edit source]

Leatherclad Hogleader, along with her cohorts Spiked Hogrider and Tanaris Hogchopper, are "a Quilboar biker gang",[1] one of the many smaller factions operating in Gadgetzan, separate to the three main crime families.[2] Despite the historical animosity between quilboar and the Horde, two of the three bear the Horde's insignia and their vehicles appear goblin in design. The quilboar normally prefer primitive weapons and crude shamanic magic to mechanical technology, but these three appear to have embraced all that Gadgetzan has to offer.

From Wowpedia:

Quilboar (also spelled quillboar) are aggressive boar-like humanoids native to the continent of Kalimdor.
The quilboar are a race of primitive boar-men that have razor sharp spines protruding from their muscular, hunched backs. These resilient, fearless creatures inhabit the central Barrens of Kalimdor in the labyrinthine maze of thorns called Razorfen Downs.
