Mareknov Duskwind was born to a merchant and a farstrider. In his life, he had a good childhood and parents that saw to his needs. He was close with his mother and father, and followed thier encouragments to become an apprentice to a magister.

Nearing the end of his apprenticeship, the Scourge invaded Quel'thelas, and Mareknov took up the blade to defend his home. He was slain defending Silvermoon, and raised to undeath as a Death Knight.

During his tenure as a death knight for the Scourge, he oversaw a campaign against the iron dwarves in Northrend. While unable to make them scourge, he was able to extract thier knowledge on runes, and pioneered advances in runeforging for the Scourge and later the Ebon Blade.

After the events at Light's Hope Chapel, Mareknov regained his free will and returned to Silvermoon. What he found was a vile pit of decadence in a half-ruined city. Finding Prince Kael'thas dead and a traitor, he renounced any fealty to the new Sin'dorei. He turned to the Dark Lady and offered his blade in service, in accordance with the Knights of the Ebon Blade.

Today, he works towards furthering the Ebon Blade and the Dark Lady's goals.
