Monte Gazlowe[2] is the latest Trade Prince of the Bilgewater Cartel. Before the former Trade Prince Jastor Gallywix left the Horde, Gazlowe was the official goblin leader of Ratchet, a major neutral port in the Horde-occupied territory of the Northern Barrens. Prior to the end of the Fourth War, he held no allegiances to either Horde or Alliance, tending to prefer neutrality as the most profitable course of action. He would even actively defend this neutrality with force when needed.[3] While Gazlowe holds no special love for the Alliance, he holds no hate for them either, and regards their gold as he would anyone else's.[4] He worked as the Horde's chief engineer for a time, and he's since retained strong relations with them.[5] This is further reinforced by one of his prized possessions being a "liberated" SI:7 spy cloak.[6]

Gazlowe is four feet tall with bright green skin, bloodshot yellow eyes, a prominent chin, an impressive nose, and long pointed ears.[7] He is about forty by the time of the Cataclysm,[8] so he is about 52 in Dragonflight. Gazlowe's favoritism towards the Horde was shown multiple times, having been the main architect for the Horde's garrison in Frostfire Ridge, as well as forming Gazlowe's Greasemonkeys to work for the Horde during the Fourth War. When approached by Thrall to lead the Bilgewater Cartel, Gazlowe finally threw his lot in with the Horde fully, becoming the cartel's new trade prince. This led to him becoming seated on the Horde Council as the goblin representative.

Gazlowe is a rare example of a fair goblin employer: allowing unions among his employees, willing to give them days off and full pay[9] and convinced that a good boss has to respect his crew in order to get their own respect back.[10] His workers are given hazard pay,[11] but he is not willing to see good crew die. For the lost, he gives insurance to their families, with full value and no haggling.[12] Gazlowe expects the best from his crews, so he pays them what they're worth and treats them well. In return, he has the best goblin crews on the planet, and they are not going over to any competition.[13]

Biography

The Founding of Durotar

WC3RoC-logo.png This section concerns content related to Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos or its expansion The Frozen Throne.

After the Third War, Gazlowe was contracted by Warchief Thrall to be Durotar's Chief Engineer. His task was to secure a reliable source of water for the newly constructed city of Orgrimmar. Gazlowe's expedition dugs tunnels outside the city in search of underground well, where they accidentally tunneled into a den of kobolds who immediately flooded into the caves and drove the goblin miners out. Gazlowe sent the yet-unproven Rexxar into the Orgrimmar Tunnels to protect sappers that would collapse the breaches into the kobold dens. When Rexxar succeeded Gazlowe rewarded him with magical items.[14]

World of Warcraft

Gazlowe's original model in World of Warcraft.

Having been paid well by Thrall for his and his workers' aid in constructing the city, Gazlowe decided to establish the port town of Ratchet in the Barrens, at the mouth of the Southfury River, sometime after Orgrimmar's completion.[15] He sent one of his employees, Rezlak, to Durotar to continue helping the orcs.[16]

In the past, Gazlowe helped the goblins of Mirage Raceway to build a rig, and he continued to support their team further.[17] He promised Pozzik a new prototype fuel regulator, but it got delayed when Baron Revilgaz had troubles with retrieving its blueprints.[18]

When the Southsea Freebooters arrived in the Barrens, they settled on the Merchant Coast from where they were causing problems to the goblins of Ratchet. Consequently, Gazlowe sent adventurers of both factions to deal with the pirates and retrieve his stolen goods.[19] He notably awaited new boots from Drizzlik.[20]

At some point, Baron Revilgaz of Booty Bay sent a bottle of  [99-Year-Old Port] to Gazlowe as a gift, but it was nabbed by the menace Mad Magglish after a crane accident in Ratchet. Adventurers were sent by Crane Operator Bigglefuzz to retrieve it, and who later brought it to Gazlowe.[21]

Funding reconstruction and revolution

WoW-novel-logo-16x62.png This section concerns content related to the Warcraft novels, novellas, or short stories.

Following the devastation in Orgrimmar caused by rogue fire elementals, Gazlowe was approached by Thrall to rebuild the city; even after lowering the price, it was still a tremendous amount, but nonetheless Thrall agreed to pay it to rebuild his shattered capital. Shortly afterward, the former Warchief departed for Outland.

Following the death of the tauren leader Cairne Bloodhoof in the Orgrimmar arena, and the insurrection of the Grimtotem tribe that followed, Gazlowe was approached by the shaman Jevan Grimtotem, a Grimtotem defector who sided with Cairne's son Baine. Baine's plan called for massive amounts of explosives and other weapons, the technical and martial skill of mercenaries, and three zeppelins to transport troops into Thunder Bluff. Stormsong gave Gazlowe an enormous sum, borrowed from the coffers of Theramore Isle: one large payment, and an extra, smaller payment to make it a rush job. Atypically for a goblin, Gazlowe (albeit a little reluctantly) only accepted a fistful of the extra gold as a gesture of respect to Cairne and his son and provided the armaments requested in four days.

After the Shattering, Gazlowe provided a vessel, Draka's Fury, for Thrall and Aggra's voyage to the Maelstrom, complete with provisions.[22]

Cataclysm

Cataclysm This section concerns content related to Cataclysm.

At the time of Cataclysm, it was apparent that Gazlowe wanted to remain neutral in the factions' conflict. However, he could not bear to be robbed of profit, and when he felt that Rear Admiral Hartley of the Northwatch Expeditionary Unit wanted to prevent the Horde from trading at the port of Ratchet, Gazlowe was severely irritated by this action, and proceeded to secretly enlist the aid of Horde adventurers to destroy |Hartley's ship and cargo.[23]

He promised Wharfmaster Dizzywig a promotion if he were to deal with the pirates on Fray Island.[24] He also sent the adventurers to the captured Baron Longshore to find his stolen supplies.[25]

After the Cataclysm, he performed several salvage operations in the Shimmering Deep.

Gazlowe in Frostwall.

As Thrall and Khadgar's expedition reached Frostfire Ridge, the archmage opened a portal and brought in personnel and supplies to construct a garrison. Gazlowe served as chief architect because of his history in helping construct Orgrimmar. Gazlowe, his personals, Lady Sena, Skaggit, and peons immediately began working on the garrison in Frostwall. During early developments, he worked with the commander giving him tasks to prepare the land for construction and continued to work with him when expanding the garrison. The adventurer could learn blueprints and construct buildings at his table. Gazlowe seemed to be taking great pride in his work to the point of vanity. He also provided plans for constructing outposts across Draenor.

Upon establishing a building in Vol'jin's Pride, Gazlowe showed up to hurry his workers up.

Gazlowe accompanied the commander and the Frostwolf leaders, Durotan and Draka in Talador and fought against the Iron Horde, their machinery and supplies. He also managed to get and function a robot that was used against the enemy force stationed in Tuurem. He then accompanied the Horde to the entrance of Shattrath City to meet Khadgar. When the counter-attack started, he and Thaelin Darkanvil found an Iron Star, functioned it and the commander used it to eliminate the numbers of orcs.

Some time later, the Iron Horde renewed their machinery near Thunder Pass and Gazlowe agreed to investigate... for a sum. With the help of the adventurer, he deactivated the enemy drill but was eager to find out about who was responsible for the machinery and what else they've got in the mountains. They entered the Iron Siegeworks and started eliminating the enemies and examining the gadgets. He eventually found out that the mastermind behind the armory was captured dwarf Thaelin Darkanvil with whom he has a friendly rivalry. They found and freed the dwarf and killed a leading orc on whom the Alliance had set a bounty, thus he gained an extra profit. Afterward, he returned to Frostwall.

He is ultimately seen with the Horde leaders near the Gates of Tanaan after Warlord Azuka was killed, as Warchief Grommash challenged them to enter Tanaan.

After Gul'dan took over the Iron Horde, Gazlowe sent a team of goblins with the Frostwolf orcs and the Horde to the Iron Docks. He later provided Durotan a siege machine that destroyed the Tanaan Gate.

Gazlowe in Dazar'alor.

During the Fourth War, Gazlowe led a Horde band known as Gazlowe's Greasemonkeys during the Island Expeditions. The team comprised himself and his assistants from Frostwall, Lady Sena, and Skaggit. The group could also be found idling in the Port of Zandalar in Zuldazar.

After hearing rumors that Grizzek Fizzwrench was alive, Trade Prince Gallywix would hire Horde adventurers to hunt him down and ensure he was dead. Unbeknownst to Gallywix, Gazlowe would give them a higher offer to ensure that Grizzek stayed alive.[26] Thus, the adventurer started in Tanaris by repairing Feathers, following the mechanized parrot, and finding Grizzek with Sapphronetta Flivvers in Thistleshrub Valley.[27] Saffy and Grizzek promised to give Feathers to the hero in exchange for telling everyone that they had died. With that, the couple drove off on Grizzek's bike. While Gallywix was convinced, Gazlowe saw through the adventurer's lie and was happy that Grizzek still lived.[28]

Mechagon

Gazlowe later caught wind of Tinkmaster Overspark of Tinker Town leading an Alliance operation to the now opened vault within the Abandoned Junkheap of Tiragarde Sound. While he dismissed Overspark's belief that the vault had a connection with Mechagon Island as a fairy tale, Gazlowe was very interested in acquiring any tech within the vault.[29] To that end, he rallied a team together and secured the vault.[30] Seeing the machinery was broken, Gazlowe quickly got it back up and running, triggering a projection of King Mechagon who then attempted to purge the goblins from the vault. Though unable to save all of the crew, Gazlowe's quick thinking in using a captured gnome saved the rest from King Mechagon. Surprised by Mechagon's actual existence, he quickly voiced desires to obtain the King's tech.[31] Gazlowe immediately directed the expedition to Mechagon, as he didn't want to lose another good crew on his watch.[32]

With his crew established and having no misconception about how King Mechagon would greet them, Gazlowe had the group quietly arrive to the island on a submarine. After the group arrived in Mechagon, he told the Speaker of the Horde not to be fooled by the grass on the island. He pointed out that bots on the shoreline and the constant buzz of machinery and smog in the air revealed that Mechagon is a technological gold mine.[33]

Acknowledging that King Mechagon's cruelty ensured he would have enemies, Gazlowe and the Speaker headed off to find allies and subsequently allied with the Rustbolt Resistance led by Prince Erazmin, King Mechagon's own son.[34] At the Prince's request, Gazlowe fought against the King's forces side by side with Tinkmaster Overspark and later joined with the Prince in Rustbolt.[35][36] As a show of unity, Gazlowe vowed to keep his nose clean, while he discretely asked for Horde adventures to collect unfinished prototypes before the Alliance could get their hands on them.[37]

After King Mechagon's termination, Gazlowe remarked that the partnership with Overspark wasn't half bad and that it reminded him of how profitable working with the Alliance can be.[38]

Gazlowe joined Varok Saurfang's revolution against Sylvanas Windrunner, where he worked with Tinkmaster Overspark in creating a machine to clear the tunnel path from Razor Hill to Orgrimmar.[39] During the conflict, Saurfang challenged Sylvanas to a Mak'gora, which ended in his death and Sylvanas's abandonment of the Horde. Gazlowe attended Saurfang's funeral.[40] He admitted that he was going to miss Saurfang, and he vowed that he wouldn't let the job he started go unfinished.

When Auctioneer Ralinza refused to allow a Former Banshee Loyalist to use the Auction House in the Valley of Strength, Gazlowe stepped in and reminded Ralinza that the Horde needed to unite if it wanted to survive and that Sylvanas had conned a lot of folks into following her.[41]

Visions of N'Zoth

Monte Gazlowe joins the Horde Council.

Gazlowe was among those to attend the private auction for the X-52 Personnel Armor.[42] After Gallywix takes Hobart Grapplehammer hostage to get the armor for himself, Gazlowe joins the battle against Gallywix.[43] After Hobart is freed and Gallywix beaten, the armor falls into the possession of Gallywix's old rival.[44]

In the aftermath of N'Zoth's death and the end of the Fourth War, Gazlowe and the other Horde leaders received the terms for an armistice from the Grand Alliance, putting the Fourth War on hold indefinitely, if not permanently. With that matter settled, Lor'themar Theron addressed the absence of a Warchief. Despite support for Thrall to take the mantle on again, he refused, citing that he had promised Varok Saurfang he would not take on the role once more. Instead, he brought up the idea of the Warchief being necessary, instead bringing in the belief that a change was needed for the Horde's leadership. With this, the Horde Council was created. In light of Gallywix fleeing Orgrimmar with the rest of Sylvanas's inner circle, Thrall turned to Gazlowe to take over as the leader of the Bilgewater Cartel. Remarking that "under new management" was just another way of saying that "opportunity's knockin", Gazlowe agreed to Thrall's request, thus becoming the Trade Prince of the Bilgewater Cartel and their representative on the council. In the face of Thrall's concerns that Gallywix could still be funding members of the Cartel, Gazlowe simply promised to pay them more than the cheapskate.[45]

With his ascension to Trade Prince of the Bilgewater Cartel, Gazlowe couldn't help but comment that the Horde itself was about to go through a "management restructuring." Though the goblin promised that there wouldn't be any complaints from him as long as the checks didn't bounce.

Shadows Rising

WoW-novel-logo-16x62.png This section concerns content related to the Warcraft novels, novellas, or short stories.

When a Horde Council meeting was derailed by a failed assassination attempt on Talanji, the Zandalari queen and a key ally, Gazlowe and the rest of the Horde leaders were forced into action. They empowered the young troll shaman Zekhan, still grieving the loss of Varok Saurfang, with a critical mission to aid Talanji and help uncover the rising threat against her. After Zekhan sent word that another assassination attempt was made by a war party, Gazlowe provided Rokhan with a flying machine that the troll used to bring him to Dazar'alor.

Upon learning that the Alliance was aware of the unrest in Zandalar, their belief that Talanji was working with Sylvanas, and that they had requested to speak with the council, another meeting was held. Gazlowe felt that Thrall should just tell the humans to stay off their lands and stated that if they wanted Mathias Shaw freed by the Zandalari Empire then the Alliance should give the Horde something first. After his fellow council numbers voiced support for a meeting, Gazlowe decided to vote in favor hoping that it could lead to the capture of Sylvanas. His hope being that if Sylvanas was captured, then they could focus on Horde problems. Thus, a unanimous vote was reached for Thrall and Ji Firepaw to meet Jaina Proudmoore and Anduin Wrynn.

When the Horde rallied to aid the Zandalari against the Widow's Bite and the Banshee loyalists, Gazlowe gave Thrall goblin seeker bots and joined Lor'themar to sail to the Necropolis in Nazmir to prevent any possibility of retreat by sea.[46]

Exploring Azeroth

WoW-novel-logo-16x62.png This section concerns content related to the Warcraft novels, novellas, or short stories.

After the Horde Council decided to send Rexxar and Zekhan to look over the Horde holdings within Kalimdor, in order to assess the needs and statuses of the people, how the wounds from the Fourth War were healing, and where there were still aches within the Horde. Consequently, Monte wrote them a letter as a pass for any goblin they might encounter on their journey, on which he indicated that he "owns" whoever read it, their Steamwheedle boss, their Bilgewater cronies, and their shoes, and that the duo can therefore go where they want just like him on his property.[47]

He then wrote a letter to Krendle Bigpockets and had Zekhan deliver it, as part of his search for lost funds from the era of Jastor Gallywix.[48] He also warned them to avoid the Venture Company in Mulgore.[49]

Shadowlands

Shadowlands This section concerns content related to Shadowlands.

During the Scourge resurgence, Gazlowe was among the Horde leaders to convene with the leaders of the Alliance and Bolvar Fordragon at the Frozen Throne within Icecrown Citadel. While desiring to rescue his friends, Gazlowe knew that he couldn't risk the stability of the Horde and send their fellow leaders on what might well be a suicide mission. In light of Tyrande Whisperwind's hostility when Lor'themar Theron encouraged the Alliance to do the same, he prepared himself for battle but stood down when Bolvar called for it.[50] He then witnessed the ritual to open the doorway to the Maw and watched as champions of Azeroth, the Knights of the Ebon Blade, and even Tyrande Whisperwind enter to rescue their comrades and seek out Sylvanas.[51] Gazlowe subsequently departed from Icecrown.

In the RPG

In his younger days, Gazlowe was a thief, like many goblins. Through adventuring, he gradually managed to make enough money to begin legitimate business, and proved to excel at it.[53]

Now, at the age of 40, Gazlowe resides in Ratchet as the manager of the port's trading operations. He runs one of the largest and most successful port towns in Kalimdor — if not the entire globe. While Gazlowe's city operates under the watchful eyes of the trade princes, he has considerable free reign, and proves effective because of it. A well-respected member of the goblin community, he also has a good heart, and is willing to help someone for little in return on occasion — but he wouldn't mind payback later, of course. He ships and receives to and from Booty Bay and Undermine. This goblin's smile looks almost friendly, but for his sharp teeth.[53]

In the canceled Warcraft Adventures, Gazlowe was a pilot and engineer who built his own zeppelin during the Second War and flew it in over ten missions. The young Thrall helped him foil the "ground-breaking" engineering plans of a group of nearby gnomish inventors that Gazlowe wanted to stop. In thanks, Gazlowe helped him travel around the Eastern Kingdoms in his zeppelin.

The machinery of this zeppelin contained a samophlange.
