Back at Camp Lastwind, the caravan of vulpers led by Nora planned to become the first to successfully steal treasure from the undead pirates in the port of Zem'lan. The adventurers were sent to the port to search for the missing vulper scout, but instead helped the first officer Jamboyi rebel against the tyrannical ruler of the port, Pirate-King Zem'lan. With their arms full of stolen loot, Jamboya and his fellow rebels then accompanied the adventurer back to Lastwind's camp, where they convinced Norah to let them join the caravan in exchange for helping them plunder the rest of the port's treasure. Similarly, in Zak'rajan's Court, the adventurers helped a team of loot seekers consisting of Kenzou, Omi, and Tacha defeat Zak'rajan the Immortal and loot his treasure of powerful artifacts. In southern Vol'dun, the Ashvane Trading Company enslaved several vulpers and forced them to mine Azerite at Redrock Mines. The vulpera Keerin commissioned adventurers to free him and his fellow prisoners.
Waves of Vengeance
The Horde later hired vulper caravans to help transport supplies for the war against the Alliance. During the Alliance's attack on Vol'dun, the Seventh Legion began setting fire to the caravans in hopes of stopping the transports and discouraging the vulpers from doing any more work for the Horde. Angered by these attacks, Nisha asked the Horde adventurers to defend her people and fight the Alliance invaders.
After the Alliance killed the Zandalari ruler, King Rastakhan, during the Battle of Dazar'alor, Kiro attended the king's funeral and declared that the vulpera would do everything in their power to help the Zandalari.
Joining the Horde
Baine welcomed the vulpera to the Horde.
Since the Horde showed them that life is about more than just survival, the vulpera decided to join the faction to explore the world beyond Vol'dun. Kiro, Meerah, and Nisha traveled to Orgrimmar to speak with Baine Bloodhoof, but he was forced to deny them membership as troubles in the Twilight Highlands, Zuldazar, and Suramar had strained the Horde's resources and he could not agree to add new members to his ranks while their current allies struggled. The Wulpers decided to offer their help to prove their worth to the Horde: Kiro went to the Highlands to put down a peasant rebellion near Crushblow, Nisha went to Zuldazar to fend off the Nazeshi naga invasion, and Meerah went to Suramar to get Nightborne's arkwin production back on track. With the adventurer's help, the vulpers managed to solve the Horde's problems, which impressed Baine's allies. When the three vulpers returned to Orgrimmar, Baine realized his mistake in dismissing them so quickly and offered them a place in the Horde, which they gladly accepted. Thus, the vulpers became allies of the Horde, who gave them a home beyond the dunes.

Vulpers are an intelligent and insightful race of wandering scavengers. They are able to turn what they find into an opportunity for growth, and are adept at solving problems no matter how small. Despite their small stature, vulpera are fierce and cunning in battle, defeating any enemy foolish enough to underestimate them. Though they have permanent settlements in burrows, their caravans travel from hideout to hideout, seeking supplies, trading them wherever they can, and spreading the information they glean along the way. Their looting often takes the form of plundering artifacts and treasures from ancient ruins and selling them to the highest bidder. Living in Vol'dun, the Vulpera cannot afford to waste resources. Over time, they have learned to take anything that looks even remotely useful and to use what they have creatively, and they have learned to recognize value no matter what is hidden in the desert. When warned that the gold from the port of Zem'lan was cursed, Norah responded that "a little curse never deterred a vulper from a valuable treasure." According to Keerin, vulpera usually stay away from Azerite because of its instability. However, at least some of the vulpera view Azerite fragments as "nice power stones" and don't mind acquiring them.
Vulpera display alchemical abilities, using potions and elixirs to produce various effects. Vol'dunshine is a type of desert moonshine made by the Vulpera, brewed while traveling through the desert and stored in dried calabashes.
The Vulpera use hyenas as mounts, alpacas as draft animals to pull their caravans across the desert, buzzards as mounts for the flight master, and ferrets as common pets.
Vulpera commonly use idioms that refer to the desert, such as "Hot sands" (exclamation point) or "Thank the sands." Other sayings include "Home is where the cart is," "One broken wheel stops the caravan," and "Have a good time." One of the vulper's gestures of thanks is to lick the other person on the cheek.
