Background

Mor'Ladim was formerly Morgan Ladimore, a great and noble knight. His objective in life was to fight for the innocent, poor and the afflicted. He was married to a young girl named Lys when he was eighteen.

When Morgan was thirty-two, war broke out in Lordaeron. He went to war fighting alongside Uther the Lightbringer, leaving his wife and three children at home. At the time of the war Morgan saw many horrific things, the disbanding of the Knights of the Silver Hand, the death of Uther and the spread of the plague caused by Kel'Thuzad and the demon lord Mal'Ganis.

At the end of the war Morgan returned home, only to find that the lands he once loved had changed. His house was among many destroyed, and so he went to Grand Hamlet, now known as Darkshire, asking about his family. When he was told that he may find the absent family he sought in the graveyard, he refused. Instead he headed towards Lakeshire. Despite his denial, something inside him compelled him go to Raven Hill Cemetery instead. There he looked for hours, finding the graves of many friends and companions, before he discovered the overgrown graves of his wife and two of his children; the third was absent, though he did not notice this in his grief.

Mourning became loathing as Ladimore, stripped of his sanity by grief, drew his blade and swung it at the gravestones. A group of cemetery attendants moved to intervene, and in his anger, Morgan viciously cut them down. When he returned to a more normal state, the knight found himself soaked in the blood of the innocent and, utterly despondent, he drew his knife from his waist and stabbed himself.

The next day, his corpse and those of the attendants were discovered. Perhaps seeking to avoid further darkness in the already-shattered community, the cemetery quickly and quietly buried Morgan in an obscure corner of the cemetery.

Some days later, his grave was disturbed and his body missing. As a result of his unending grief and the deaths of Innocents upon his hands, Ladimore ascended from the grave as a semi-sentient member of the undead, roaming the tracts of land he had once fought to defend and shedding the blood of citizens and many a poor and inexperienced adventurer dispatched to stop him.

As a result of his further crimes against the denizens of Duskwood, Commander Althea Ebonlocke wants Mor'Ladim to be returned once again to his grave.

Notes

He is infamous for his incredibly large aggro radius for the zone level, and for aggroing players in their mid-20s doing some of the earlier quests in Raven Hill and quickly killing them.
