Doctor Theolen Krastinov
|Level||91 Rare Elite|
|Location||Butcher's Sanctum, Scholomance|
His first victims were recruited from among the household of Caer Darrow. Among them were servants of the Barov family, Eva and Lucien Sarkhoff. Trapped, tortured and maimed for months, they vowed vengeance on Krastinov even beyond the grave.
- "The undead surrounded us, constantly tormenting us with horrifying acts of depravity. Finally, he came. He introduced himself as Doctor Theolen Krastinov. We came to know him as the butcher...We finally understood what the screams were from. The Butcher exposed us to pain that we did not know existed. He used us in countless experiments to devise a plague. The days turned to weeks. We would have died on that first day had it not been for that cruel bastard keeping us alive through magical means....We feel nothing. Our souls remain here, in limbo. We are unable to leave until our remains are found and spirits laid to rest."
Eventually Krastinov was killed for his atrocities, however, still saw some usefulness out of him and raised him into undeath to continue serving the Scourge. Some students trained under the doctor himself were send to the Plaguelands.

- It is possible that the inspiration for Krastinov's character may be Josef Mengele, head physician of the Auschwitz death camp, who used his position to carry out unspeakable acts of torture on certain inmates in the name of science, earning him the nickname 'The Angel of Death'.
- His quote "The doctor is in!" may be a reference to Hellraiser's Dr Channard Cenobite.
- Theolen Krastinov is voiced by Robin Atkin-Downes.
