When you roll a Death Knight, the opening cutscene makes it very clear that you are, in fact dead. I can't quote it precisely, but it specifically in like the first minute says you were a hero of your respective faction that died and has been raised to serve the Lich King. Arthas' state of existence is irrelevant (and without getting spoilery, there are quests in Icecrown that get deeper into that--think Kingdom Hearts).I'm not really sure why people are still unclear on it. You can debate the particulars of it, like if your character did it by choice or not; I like the idea of infiltration and hadn't thought of it. You can stretch things a bit timewise (like the person above, my Belf DK died in the Third War in the defense of Silvermoon). But the undeath is extremely clear, and trying to get around it too much can lead you down the garden path of Sue-dom IMHO.
