After the death of the Lich King, and Tirion Fordring taking Hearthglen for the Argent Crusade, the Scarlet Crusade appears to have become a shadow of its former self. Fallen crusaders were brought back to life by the dreadlord Balnazzar, who had been manipulating them in life as Saidan Dathrohan, Grand Crusader of the Scarlet Crusade. Following the assault on Stratholme, Balnazzar shredded his disguise and killed the remaining Scarlet Crusaders within the city. With a lot of pleasure, Balnazzar then used his necromantic powers to resurrect them, corrupting their sense or torturing their minds. Now mindless and eternally loyal to their dreadlord master, they seek to take the Plaguelands for the Burning Legion and Balnazzar.
