BiographyEdit

WoW Comic logo small3
This article or section contains lore taken from the Warcraft manga or comics.

Thassarian was a soldier of Lordaeron during the Third War. He traveled with Arthas to Northrend to hunt Mal'Ganis. When Arthas and Falric went missing, he went to search for them alone. He discovered Frostmourne Cavern, where he found Falric. Falric, already converted to a Death Knight by Arthas, slew Thassarian, and thus began his unlife as a death knight.[1]

Thassarian returned to Lordaeron with Arthas and assisted in the massacre of its citizens. Arthas forced him to slay his mother, Vivian, to prove his loyalty. This horrific event continued to haunt him, and it remained perhaps his last scrap of humanity for some time.[1]

Arthas' assault on Quel'thalas introduced Thassarian to the high elves Koltira and his brother, Faltora, at An'owyn, where he pursued the mooncrystal to open the second moongate and proceed with their attack. Thassarian nearly killed Faltora, but, upon remembering his mother, he decided to show a moment of mercy. He returned to Arthas with the mooncrystal that he recovered. Koltira later confronted Thassarian and questioned why he didn't murder his brother, hoping to convince him to regain his humanity. This attempt failed, and Thassarian killed Koltira, who was returned to unlife as another death knight. Koltira and Thassarian developed a significant friendship that lasts to this day.[1]

Years later, the Lich King ordered his death knights under the leadership of Darion Mograine to attack Light's Hope Chapel using the necropolis Acherus with the goal of raising the thousand or so Alliance soldiers buried beneath it to bolster the ranks of the Scourge. The attack on Light's Hope Chapel ended with a defeat for the Death Knights. Many of the family of the Death Knights were buried at Light's Hope Chapel, and the spirits of their relatives rose to convince them to lay down their weapons. Thassarian was convinced by his father, Killoren, to stand down. Mograine declared the independence of the Knights of the Ebon Blade. Thassarian confronted King Varian Wrynn to accept the Knights of Ebon Blade as allies and to readmit its members as members of the Alliance.[1]

At the Battle for Andorhal Thassarian

The Alliance and Forsaken are fighting over control of Andorhal and the remaining Scourge presence there. The Alliance, led by Thassarian, have taken control of the western portion of the town while the Forsaken, led by Koltira Deathweaver, have taken control of the eastern portion.[2] Over the course of the Battle for Andorhal Thassarian sends Alliance heroes to deal with the remaining scourge forces and after defeating the leaders, Thassarian and Koltira enter a truce. Some time afterwards Alliance forces launched a failed assault on the Forsaken. During the Forsaken counter attack Thassarian flees and his minion Lurid is killed. [3]

With the Battle of Andorhal over, Thassarian heads off to Tirisfal Glades to hunt Sylvanas in an attempt to find out what happened to Koltira. [4]

TriviaEdit

Even while he was in service of the Lich King, Thassarian seemed to be a noble person. After sending the player to rescue Koltira Deathweaver — against the code of the Scourge death knight — Orbaz Bloodbane asked why he cared. Thassarian replied that, though they may have been hated enemies in life, "In death, we are brothers."

  • His blades use the same model as the two-handed sword [Endbringer].

MangaEdit

Death Knight, a manga from TokyoPop, tells the story of Thassarian. The manga was released in December 2009.[5]

QuotesEdit

"All I ever wished was to serve my king once again. For humanity, against a common enemy.
Instead, I find that our numbers have been infiltrated by cultist scum.... and all of the signs point to Naxxanar as the origin of this rot."
The quest Last Rites
See Dialog between Thassarian and various others atop Naxxanar.
To Tanathal

Speak, Lich! Undeath won't save you from what I'll put you through!

"With the death of the The Lich King, all I have left is my duty. There is no family, there are no friends... there is only this. War."
