As if in a trance, they wade through armies of enemies, singing their black prayers and sowing death in the name of their lord. Once the dark anger of a Deathknight has been awakened, only death itself is able to stop these fearsome creatures. Their tradition stems from the War of Six Races, when they were appointed guardians of the Fial Darg, the Princes of Darkness. Still bound by their ancient oath to never falter, they are the pride of the Sinistra. They consider their talent for magic as a gift from the Fial Darg, always positioning themselves in the center of an attack, and always the last ones to stay and defend.
An advancing row of Deathknights is known to the races of the light as a dark storm, and it is said that only the finest armor, forged by the best dwarven blacksmiths, is able to withstand the blows of their war hammers.
