Kel’Thuzad was one of the greatest Archmagi of Dalaran. He was one of the members of the Kirin Tor and a dear friend of the Archmage Antonidas. However, his lust to delve into the dark arts of necromancy made him an outcast amongst his fellow wizards. Heeding the call of the god-like Lich King, Kel’Thuzad traveled to Northrend and offered his soul to Ner’zhul.

Kel’Thuzad used his powers and vast fortune to found the Cult of the Damned – the sinister group that would bring Ner’zhul’s dark will to fruition…[1]
