Marushi the Huntress was young when she married, younger than most would even think or allow. But the Paladin who became her husband was a noble and respected man.
Soon a child was born, a little girl. And sadly about the time the child was five, the scourge came through. Vairus, Marushi's husband promised to protect them, and he went off to help fight against the undead. -- Days passed and she had heard no word from him, when...A man stormed into the house, his glowing blue eyes seemed to be full of hate, her husband now the Death Knight Vairus stood before her. Protecting her daughter she told her to run, go fin Uncle Ritsuzen. Their daughter run screaming and crying...
When Ritsuzen arrived back at the house, Vairus had already left, and Marushi laid on the ground dieing. Her life force mostly gone. Ritsuzen quickly took her to Silvermoon in hopes of her being saved.
No one can completely explain what happened this day. But when Vairus had killed his wife, the soul he had taken with her, was only a part of her's...As if...There was two within her. ((Think of a Gemini, said to be twins in one person.)) The soul taken from her was turned into a Death Knight named, Marushi. Well the huntress, lived. Unlike other Death Knights, this one remembered everything...Her husband, her life...Her daughter...But she was now a creature of Darkness, she couldn't return to take care of her daughter. -- The huntress remembered nothing, her past is blank to her. The only real thing she remembers is glowing blue eyes full of Hate, and Ritsuzen, who had stayed by her side til she woke. -- Her daughter, sent away to stay with Vairus's parents, never to see either of her parents since.
Now days the two Marushi's do know of each other, and have stood before each other. At times they can see each others memories, which the Death Knight Marushi tries to keep hidden from the other. They both call each other sister, and say that one's pronouched "May-roo-she" and the other is pronouced "Maw-roo-she".
