One of the things that makes the Death Knight such an interesting class to play is that you start out as a minion of the Lich King. In World of Warcraft lore, the Lich King is about as evil as evil can get. So you pop into the game for the first time as a Death Knight and the first thing you see is the Lich King - he knows your name, he knows your heart, and he is in your head. You are his servant.
