Captain Marwyn was a member of the Lordaeronian King's Guard and one of Prince Arthas Menethil's captains during the Third War.[1]


The Third War[]

Falric and Marwyn WC3

Marwyn and Falric enter the Throne Room with Arthas.

Marwyn had known Arthas all his life and saw him not just as his prince, but as a true friend.[2] He was a member of the guard force of the royal palace and a subordinate to Captain Falric. Throughout Arthas' campaigns in the Third War, Marwyn was present to help oversee operations and lead the soldiers. When the time came to strike at Mal'Ganis, Marwyn, Falric, Luc Valonforth and Arthas drove into the heart of Northrend and achieved victory, though not without having first attained Frostmourne.[1]

Eventually, Arthas fell to the whispers of the blade. He murdered many of his soldiers from the 1st Legion, raised them into undeath and turned his two most trusted captains, Falric and Marwyn, into malicious death knights.[1]

Ultimately, Falric and Marwyn accompanied Arthas back to Lordaeron. They stood at Arthas' side as he walked into the throne room and murdered his father. It was Falric and Marwyn who had the task of slaying the citizens of the city, raising them into undeath using their newly gained powers.[1]
