Death Knights were once heroes of Azeroth, those who fought against the Scourge those who were slain in battle and risen again, bound to the Lich King's unholy will.
Death Knights are mighty heroes which some of them disobeyed the Lich King and were no longer a servant of Scourge, Death Knights are one of the most powerful of the world of Azeroth.
Most were killed when Trolman and his forces arrived in Northrend at the Fall of the Lich King-events. The death knights left may still be out there waiting for their call to war. And their revenge on Trolman.
There are currently three different kinds of Death Knights. 1. The Orcish Death Knights: Those were created during the First and Second war by the Orcish Warlocks in the Shadow Council. They took the soul of their fallen Warlocks, and planted them within the corpse of a fallen Human. 2. The Scourge Death Knights: These were often Paladins who were slain in battle, and then later ressurected by the Lich King. But Warriors and stuff could also be raised as one. 3. The Old God Death Knights: The Old God Death Knights are people who have been given unholy powers by an Old God. Currently only two of these exists: Herosh and Halk. 4.
