The Crimson Legion was an elite group within the Scarlet Crusade, led by Grand Crusader Dathrohan, whose members could be found in strongholds and areas around the Eastern and Western Plaguelands as well as in the human controlled side of Stratholme. Members of the Crimson Legion were recognizable by their tabards, which are notably different compared to the ones worn by line members of the Scarlet Crusade.

Adventurers exploring the Eastern Plaguelands could once encounter a Crimson Courier and her bodyguards, who often traveled on the road leading to Tyr's Hand from Stratholme.

With the fall of the Scarlet Crusade, their disguised demon leader, Balnazzar, released the possessed body of Grand Crusader Dathrohan and went on a rampage, killing every remaining crusader in Stratholme. He then used his necromantic power to raise them all as vile undead slaves.

Balnazzar refers to this army as the Risen.
