My DK is an integral part of my little draenei RP cluster. He's the son of an old, respected holy paladin and a priestess of Ishanah, brother to a protection paladin in training, eldest scion of a line devoted to the Light. As such, he's filled with nothing but deep, deep shame over what he _let_ happen to himself. A true paladin would have thrown himself on his sword the minute he awoke in undeath, but he's too weak and cowardly for that, he's too afraid of the _true_ death, which no self-respecting paladin ought to feel, which just reminds him that he's no longer a paladin, which in turn further fuels his shame, etc., etc. He's so ashamed, in fact, that even after Arthas' death, he has yet to return to the Exodar and reconnect with his family, though he did glimpse his mother from afar while questing in Shattrath. He denies the addiction to inflicting pain with every fiber of his being, and he thinks he's got it reasonably under control, but what he doesn't realize is that by isolating himself, he's delivering agony unto his family, who want nothing more than to bring him _home_. But if he can no longer kneel before A'dal without feeling shame and hideous, flaying guilt, then the very least he can do is consecrate his unlife to the Naaru. When he summons his gargoyle, he hears not the flapping of tattered batwings, but the slow, proud sweep of royal wings. There's a reason my DK's going to be rocking the crystalforge off-color, come 4.3. Light, must remember the Light.

interesting! I'd love to see a Naruu's responce to that little problem of 'I see only darkness.' upon death.

Thanks! My wee ickle DK is near and dear to my heart, wangsty as he can sometimes get. (But hey, DKs, it comes with the territory, right?) He's not the brightest space goat in the pen, though, because if he were...well, he'd realize that the fact that he can still use Gift of the Naaru means that he's not quite as lost in the darkness as he might believe. :D My DK sat in the World's End Tavern for a long, long time after the Crusader Bridenbrad quest chain, because...yeah. The Light does not forget its champions, even if they can't wrap their frakking stubborn heads around the concept.
