Chapter 1 - Alex the Death Knight
They say that death is a rebirth into a better life, that you will end up in your god's realm and spend happiness there until you are ready to walk the mortal planes again. Depends so much on how you die or more precisely who killed you. I never wanted this, at least as far as I can remember. You see I was killed by the Lich King and reborn into a death knight with no memory of my past life. Only thing I knew for sure was my name.
My name is…..
When I first awoke in Archerus: The Ebon Hold I was in front of the Lich King himself. He told me that I was to be a major part of his war against the Argent Dawn on the ground below and taking Light's Hope Chapel. Of course at the time I didn't realize this was wrong. My fellow death knights and I went and slaughtered hundreds of paladins and priests under the Lich King's orders. When we had finally arrived at Light's Hope Chapel every single death knight was unable to go far into the holy lands.
That is except…
The Argent Dawn looked at me in horror as I could walk on holy land, their holy land. We fought for hours before realizing it was hopeless. The Lich King had sent us all on a suicide mission in order to bring out Tirion Fordring out of hiding. Tirion indeed appeared and called for the fighting to cease. Tirion purified our leader Darion Morgraine's sword the Corrupted Ashbringer and pushed the Lich King back. We became a part of the Argent Crusade and also formed The Knights of the Ebon Blade. It was my job then to be ambassador to the Alliance.
As I walked into the human city of Stormwind I could feel the glares of the citizens and gaurds. They threw rotten food at me as I made my way to the throne deep in the city. As I approached Varian Wrynn, King of Stormwind, dozens of guards had surrounded me preventing me from going father without playing unfairly.
"Humph is this how you treat people these days Varian?" I smirked.
"We do not deal with your kind. If you want to leave with what's left of your life I'd advise you to leave."
I tossed the letter at him. "For your information Varian, I've come with a letter from Tirion Fordring himself."
"The greatest paladin alive would never associate with your kind." Varian read over the letter and looked back into my eyes. "This is nonsense!"
I laughed and jumped over the gaurds that had surrounded me. I ran up to Varian and took off my right glove, shoving my hand on his eyes. "Now see what I have seen!"
The king cringed seeing my memories of the battle, but relaxed when he was shown the words with Tirion. I then backed off and avoided various attacks from guards.
Varian ordered the guards to back off. "Perhaps I have underestimated you…. Alex."
"Glad you see this through our eyes now… your majesty."
"Sapphire, I know your listening. Come down here." I heard a giggle and a black haired girl appeared from nowhere and walked up to the King. They began to whisper back and forth thinking I could not hear them.
"Daddy why is there a death knight in the city?"
"Apparently some death knights broke free of the Lich King's control with the help of Tirion."
"Do you trust them? I do not after they murdered Alexavis." Sapphire looked at her feet trying not to cry.
"I know dear that is why I want you and your friends to watch her as long as it takes. If she is indeed on our side then I will completely trust them. But for now I need to speak to Tirion in person."
Sapphire sighed and walked over to me with a glare in her eyes. "Come then Alex I will introduce you to the Guild of The Guardians of Elune."
"What exactly is the Guardian's of Elune?" I asked Sapphire.
"The Guardian's of Elune is a guild one of my friends created shortly after we teamed up to defeat Hakar."
"Sounds interesting. When can I meet this guild leader?" Sapphire stopped mid walk.
She turned and looked at me. "You can't. Alexavis was killed by death knights such as yourself not too long ago. One can only hope she didn't become a monstrosity. Oh sorry I mean…"
I waved my hand at her. "No worries I know what you mean."
I peered into the waters of Stormwind Canals and saw myself for the first time. I am a night elf with deep purple skin and death knight glowing blue eyes. I have long pink hair with my bangs pulled to the back in a small ponytail over the rest of my hair. As for my markings they are like pink claw marks from above my eyes down to my cheeks. It was a little freaky seeing myself for the first time, as if who I'm looking at in the water's reflection isn't truly me.
We approached a church in the Cathedral District with priests and paladins watching my every move.
"Wait you can't go into holy areas can you?" Sapphire asked.
I walked up the stairs and entered the church. "As far as I know I'm the only death knight that can for reasons unknown to me."
"!" I heard someone yell. A worgen ran up and hugged the rogue.
"Cassandra it's not like I was gone forever I was only seeing what was going on in the city."
"Yeah but you missed Ishanah getting her butt kicked at a game of chess. Your sis is a monster!" Cassandra spotted me. "Speaking of monsters how is it a death knight could enter Stormwind and walk on holy land."
I glared at her. "For your information the death knights of Ebon Hold are now freed from the Lich King's grasp. As for the whole holy ground walking I have no clue so don't bug me."
"Whatever." Cassandra pulled Sapphire away to a spot I couldn't hear them.
Before I knew it I was approached by the same guards I bested in the throne room.
"You guys heard what the king said, you can't touch me anymore."
"We weren't coming to kick you out of the city. We were just wondering if you would spar with us. We want to know how to kill a death knight."
I raised an eyebrow. "Oh I see. Think the ten of you can take me on? Well I guess to be fair I won't use any of my unholy magic on you, just don't go thinking Arthas will give you this mercy."
By the time Sapphire had found me in the harbor I had already bested several guards and adventurers that had challenged me.
"If twenty-seven versus one doesn't work I'd hate you see you guys if I used unholy magic." I turned to Sapphire. "Sorry Sapphire is it? These guys kept me a bit distracted. I'm ready to meet your friends."
