|Marduk the Reborn|
|Character class||Death Knight, necromancer|
When Shak'Nairb went to the Scholomance to convert necrolytes and acolytes, he decided to go after bigger prey. That prey was Marduk Blackpool himself. Using the techniques the Forsaken used, Nairb freed Marduk from the Lich King's grasp. He swayed him into joining his quest for world domination, and for reasons such as maybe he was power-hungry, or he just wanted a change of pace. Now he leads the empire's death knights and and necromancers, just as he did in the Scholomance. However, he also is Nairb's apprentice and grows stronger everyday.
