The core fans of Bizzard Entertainment’s World of Warcraft are widely known as being a demographic keen to support their hobby with external purchases. From collectable trading card games to actions figures, World of Warcraft has been endowed with all sorts of associated merchandise. The latest item coming to Europe however, is something a bit special.
Arthas Menethil, son of King Terenas Menethil II and heir to the throne, received training as a paladin under the expert tutelage of Uther the Lightbringer. He was inducted into the Knights of the Silver Hand at age 19, and quickly became a renowned warrior in the savage First War. However, his life would turn to darkness and corruption as he spearheads a battle against the unfathomable Plague of Undeath. Led by the dreadlord Mal’Ganis at the behest of the Lich King, the Scourge destroys the innocent, transforming them into an army of undead.
Obsessed with confronting Mal’Ganis and obtaining the Runeblade Frostmourne, Arthas gradually sacrifices soldiers and innocents alike, along with his loyalty to the Knights, his honour, and even his sanity. When he succeeds in capturing the sword, it is the Lich King himself who speaks to Arthas and commands the slaying of Mal’Ganis. Now a death knight, he leads the Scourge, an instrument of destruction and evil. After murdering his own father, Arthas does not step onto the throne he was born to, but instead takes the mantle of Lich King.
