There are many who would well call me a villain.

Is that necessarily true?

From the point of view of the Alliance and other humans that I’ve helped “purge” from our land (or add to our armies), it's true. Yet in the history of Azeroth, there have been many who shed blood for their own purposes.

There is no difference in character nor morality between the hero and the villain. When pushed to extremes, both will choose to hurt, destroy, or murder for their cause. While the hero chooses to hide their misdeed behind hollow words: valor, righteousness, honor, a petty villain acknowledges that they are as selfish as any individual.

What many do not understand is that the hero and villain fight for the same cause. Let it be said that the Forsaken stand for bringing peace to Azeroth. True peace can only be brought by unity, and since it is impossible for the undead to live again, we must unite humanity, civilization, and eventually all things, in death. Thereby bring peace to all beings.

I have succeeded as best I can at unifying my fellow Forsaken under the banner of Curse. I realize it has become as much a part of me a I am the embodiment of the guild. I was given this role due to my extraordinary tenacity, but now my power has grown beyond -in no small part is it because of the Tome. I feel it consuming me just as I'm afraid it did its former masters, Ghrast and Meridith. And now it seems the Tome refuses to reveal any more of its secrets to me, no matter how hard I try.

It is time to let go. I've searched for someone to take on the duties of Curse's leadership. Unfortunately, no successor has come forward, a true disservice to the Dark Lady. Once again I must put the Tome away, far away, to keep myself from being taken any further.

The last time I started to feel a sense of grief, I banished myself to the Twisting Nether, which only fractured my mind even further. This time will not be the same. I refuse to let go; I will carry on, simply in a different lifestyle than I've had. I will retire to Tarren Mill, and try to keep myself in obscurity. But my legacy will live, on worlds other than this, and through the stories of those who've suffered at the hands of Executioner Deathweaver.

I seem to recall some hero or another once yelling at one point to an enemy "The peace you would bring is the peace of the grave!". Never has that been a more apt statement.

Even if Plagos isn't out walking amongst the world, his reputation and legacy ensure that his mention will continue to bring shivers to many and paranoid glances from others. Though his goal is death for all, Plagos has obtained immortality in the form of his legend.
