Physical Description[edit | edit source]
- Garments/Armor: Valdrik is almost always seen wearing dark, antiquated looking plate armor. This dark armor is shows obvious signs of old age and is studded in several places with sharpened spikes. There are small collections of three or four diamond shaped indents in his armor in different places that glow a pale blue color, and much of his armor is swathed in a deep purple cloth that also appears tattered and weathered.
- Other: On a few pieces of Valdrik's armor are icons of various organizations and tokens of battle. Among these icons and trinkets are an icon of the Knights of the Ebon Blade pinned to his right pauldron, and a icon of the Forsaken pinned to his left. Poking up from behind his Forsaken icon is a black rose.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Valdrik has a very intense, almost brooding personality. He tends to keep to himself and seems very opinionated. This is even more apparent around Elves, as it is very clear that he has a dislike of most Elves. This seems to be regardless of their origin. This is only lessened some if the Elf in question is a Death Knight, as he has slightly higher regard for fellow Death Knights.
History[edit | edit source]
At a young age Valdrik was inducted into the Lordaeron Military and rose through the ranks, thanks primarily to his family's influence, to the rank of Knight. He trained heavily in the art and skill of mounted combat, and was schooled in military tactics and strategy, but could never train himself enough to ignore his hot temper.
As the Undead crept in around Lordaeron, Valdrik fought under the questionable command of Lord Garithos in the combined Forsaken assault on the Nathrezim held Lordaeron Capitol. The circumstances of his exact death differ from account to account, but when asked, Valdrik confesses that he was slain by Lady Sylvanas' own arrow for trying to defend Lord Garithos.
During the Scourge assault on New Avalon, Valdrik's remains were brought to Acherus and reanimated there. He was infused with Death Knight power and given the task of assailing his former countrymen. He did his duty with grim efficiency, heeding the Lich King's beckon call without question. He was resistant to breaking from the Lich King's grasp, but was eventually swayed by Highlord Darion Mograine to join him in helping to establish the Knights of the Ebon Blade. His resistance, however, gave him an ill connotation among his peers, and left him somewhat ignored by the larger body of the Acherus Death Knights.
Seeing his frustration and looking to find a place for Valdrik to serve without causing too much trouble, he was placed in the "North Wind" regiment of the Knights of the Ebon Blade, and now serves as Reaper Lord for a small cadre of Death Knights.
