Ive never understood the whole story of the original orc created deathknights. I know they were somehow created from the spirits of orcs and the bodies of humans, or something to to that effect, but I have never understood how or why. Maybe you could have a kyl in the future regarding the first death knights and the circumstances surrounding their creation.

It's been covered before, but to make it short:Gul'dan l offered, to keep Ogrim Doomhammer from simply killing him, to make him a special warrior. He took slain Stormwind knights, and put the souls of his now-slaughtered Orc Warlocks in them - giving them combat abilities with necromatic energies. These were the first death knights - created simply to keep Gul'dan's green skin from being plastered against Doomhammer.These were mostly killed off, save one, the first one, Teron Gorefiend, whom we eventually defeat inside the Black Temple.The ones we see/play now are entirely a creation of the Lich King, a dead body infused with necromantic energy, but with a part of the original soul in it (thus why you can be convinced to turn from the LK in that scene in the DK starting zone where you meet with a member of your race).
