The Huojin Pandaren are a group of Pandaren that allied themselves with the Horde after the mists parted, revealing the island of Pandaria to outsides for the first time in thousands of years. Led by Master Ji Firepaw, the Huojin believe that the ends justify the means. This puts them at a philosophical difference with the Tushui Pandaren, who allied themselves with the Alliance. When the forces of Azeroth would descend upon the Wandering Isle, an Alliance ship would crash into the turtle, severely wounding him. Through the efforts of both the Huojin, the Tushui, as well as Alliance and Horde forces, the turtle was ultimately healed. These events led the Huojin to leave the Wandering Isle and formally join the Horde.
