- It seems Darien Woesteel has survived and transformed into a Deathknight.>
King Darien Woesteel ruled the city-kingdom of Alarean before it sunk beneath the waves. He somehow survived and learned the Dark Powers, forsaking his paladinhood, to become a Death Knight. Seeking an apprentice, he corrupted the Black Lion and slew him when he did not suit his purposes.
He now broods from his castle in a canyon among the peaks of Mount Draneth.
