Ron Hayward is one of five brothers that own and operate the Hayward Fishery in Gilneas. They have operated it for a number of years, but are forced to flee when the Forsaken invasion occurs, coupled with the seismic activity of the Cataclysm. They are successful in gathering their supplies and making repairs to their boats in order to evacuate Gilneas. This was when they were infected by the worgen curse and later traveled to Hillsbrad Foothills where they fight a number of Forsaken. After Gilneas was restored, the brothers returned to the Hayward Fishery where they continue hunting fish and selling them for food.
