Lord Garithos had the unique class "Dark Knight". He has a mix of abilities from the Paladin, Tauren Chieftain, and Mountain King hero units - although the versions of 'Shockwave' and 'Avatar' are slightly different. The use of a paladin spell perhaps suggests the traditional D&D background for a dark knight of being a fallen paladin.
