Name: Jacob Crowley
Class: Death Knight
Personality: Crowley considers himself to be cursed due to the long series of misfortunes that have befallen him over the course of his existence. He is a very angry person, but he remains neutral in the conflict between the Horde and the Alliance despite his experiences (in fact, he is often sympathetic to the penitent orcs who were part of the Old Horde).
History: Jacob Crowley was born into the low nobility of Stormwind, although he did not remain there for long. At age 10, he joined Anduin Lothar's exodus to Lordaeron, travelling alone since both of his parents were killed during the fall of Stormwind. When he arrived, he entered the charge of Lordaeron, becoming a squire of the city guard. He first experienced combat as a participant at age 16, during the Horde's siege of Lordaeron in the Second War, and marched with the Alliance army that eventually destroyed the Dark Portal.
Although his birthplace was being reconstructed, Crowley returned to Lordaeron at the end of the Second War. While there, he attempted to settle down and start a normal life. He married a young priestess named Maria Brightwell, raised a small family, and devoted his time towards becoming a respected Sergeant of the Lordaeron army.
Years later, Jacob was assigned to the task force under Prince Arthas charged with investigating the plague sweeping across the kingdom. He travelled to Northrend with the rest of the army, and was killed and raised as a Death Knight following Arthas's fall. He served the Scourge from that point until the Battle at Light's Hope, at which point he became one of the more militant members of the Ebon Blade.
The status of Crowley's family is unknown, but they are all believed to be dead. His daughter Ellen and sons Matthias and Alexander all disappeared when Arthas returned from Northrend. Maria was known to have escaped Lordaeron's destruction, eventually becoming a Paladin of the Argent Dawn. However, while fighting undead in the Plaguelands, she was ambushed by Scarlet Crusaders and has not been seen since.
