The Bleeding Hollow clan is one of the most legendary orcish clans. The clan is named after the hidden chamber in which the chieftains sacrifice an eye to receive a vision of their death. Knowing how they will die, the chieftains of the Bleeding Hollow are able to lead their clan without fear against foes that one would otherwise be concerned to face.
The Bleeding Hollow clan have had at least thirty-one chieftains over the course of their existence, not including their present chieftain, Jorin Deadeye. Among them included Braknoth, Durmak and Vargrak. There was also an unnamed mad chief, who was apparently known for his speed and possible fel-corruption, hinted at by his skull's powers and unusual green glow of his eye.
Once, back when Kilrogg Deadeye was not yet the chieftain of the Bleeding Hollow, the clan was terrorized by the arakkoa who were invading their home in the Tanaan Jungle. The orcs were forced to hide in their villages from the bird men, and the chieftain at the time - Kilrogg's father - forbade them to wander beyond the walls. This era came to an end when Kilrogg killed his own father and assumed leadership of the clan, leading them to attack the arakkoa and reclaim ownership of the jungles.
At the start of the First War, the Bleeding Hollow clan, led by Kilrogg Deadeye, participated in the first attack on Stormwind Keep, along with the Twilight's Hammer clan, led by Cho'gall. This first attack was an unmitigated disaster for the orcs, and Deadeye and Cho'gall blamed the failure on each other. A rift soon grew that threatened to rip the Horde apart before it had even begun its conquest of Azeroth. Gul'dan quickly stepped in to quell the problem, reinstalling Blackhand as Warchief of the Horde.
During the Second War, the Bleeding Hollow clan was stationed throughout Khaz Modan, where it controlled the Horde's vital mining and oil refining operations. After the Horde's defeat, they were able to evade capture by Alliance forces. With Ner'zhul's help they were able to make it back to the relative safety of Draenor. Under his uneasy rule they faced an invasion of Draenor made by human expedition forces.
When the world started to collapse, due to the numerous portals opened by Ner'zhul, Bleeding Hollow along with the Warsong and the Shattered Hand clan attempted to save themselves by breaking through the human fortifications near the Dark Portal and getting back to Azeroth before Draenor collapsed. These clans entered it just in time before Archmage Khadgar closed it completely. However, the Bleeding Hollow clan was captured by the Alliance and placed into the internment camps. Part of the Bleeding Hollow clan remained on Draenor and survived.
When Thrall liberated the Orcs of the internment camps, the imprisoned Bleeding Hollow members were recruited. The clan now flies the banner of the New Horde, but no doubt has an individual presence, like the Frostwolf Clan.
The remnants of the Bleeding Hollow on Draenor appear to be split. One portion joined the Fel Horde and inhabit Zeth'Gor in Hellfire Peninsula, as well as parts of Hellfire Citadel. Another part, residing at the ancestral grounds of the Bleeding Hollow on the edge of Terokkar Forest, remained uncorrupted. Led by Kilrogg's son Jorin, they were forced out of their lands by a clan of ogres, and fled to the safety of the Mag'har stronghold of Garadar in Nagrand.

- In Warcraft II: Beyond the Dark Portal, the color of the clan was strangely changed from green to orange. It may have been a game mechanic as the Bonechewer Clan color was green and they may have intended to differentiate the two more and changed the Bleeding Hollow Clan color to orange. In later sources, World of Warcraft and the Horde Player's Guide, it's implied its color is green.
- There is a warlock spell in World of Warcraft called Eye of Kilrogg, an obvious reference to the renowned chieftain.
- One of the realms in World of Warcraft is named after the Bleeding Hollow Clan.
