Death Knight Quotes

“I have no name. But when people whisper stories of my ghastly deeds, they call me the Death Knight.”

“You look capable of giving me a decent challenge, and yet I cannot fight you. How maddening.”

“I slough off the past as a snake does his skin. I slink constantly forward, to my next prey. That is all I need.”

“Soldiers, like weapons, turn dull from disuse. Only by going to battle and shedding blood can one stay sharp.”

“Some of these so-called "Heroes" are clearly weaklings. You would do well to let me cull the herd.”

“My blade has been sharpened...and it craves flesh.”

“Your friend sent me here to impart a message. While I'm here, why don't you let me kill one of your Heroes?”

“I live.”

“Who will dare face me now?”

“Failure is unacceptable.”

“Did you expect me to be grateful?”

“I have a talent for murder that demands expression. How dare you constrict me? Know that my truest, deepest wish is to engage you in a mortal duel...and, in that duel, to die by your hand. You are capable of ending my life, are you not? I eagerly await that day. Meanwhile, I will sharpen my scythe and slay any weakling foolish enough to cross me.”
