I have long been of the opinion that the Knights of the Ebon Blade are everything that the Forsaken *should* have been. What the Forsaken *could* have been.Their origins are identical. Enslaved by the Lich King, they manage to break free of the Scourge with the help of powerful beings. Now free from Arthas, they seek their revenge.Their aesthetic is similar. Visuals with a heavy emphasis on darkness and death. Adopting questionable, sometimes outright horrifying, tactics in pursuit of their goals.However, they're outlook couldn't be more different. The Ebon Blade hates their condition, and so they fight to make sure nobody ever has to experience their pain and suffering. The Forsaken hate their condition, and so they seek to make everyone else experience their pain and suffering.That is why you had Death Knights fighting shoulder-to-shoulder with Paladins, to the point where one Icecrown quest has the most powerful members of the Ebon Blade personally riding in to rescue trapped Argent Crusaders from the Cult of the Damned. Meanwhile, Forsaken in Cataclysm are brainwashing freshly raised corpses to ensure their loyalty to the Banshee Queen.
