Kirani Ebonshade was a night elf death knight that was known among the Knights of the Ebon Blade to act out of arrogance and aggression. She was once a Sentintel of the night elves of Mount Hyjal that was banished for unknown reasons during the Third War. She then traveled east across the Great Sea and came into combat against the death knight Arthas Menethil, and was slain by this dark warrior. She was later resurrected by him as a death knight herself, and she began working covert across Azeroth, learning more about the Horde and Alliance as a spy for the Scourge, and the Lich King himself.

During the War in Northrend, Kirani was known as the Ebon Warrior and led Scourge forces in combat against the banded forces of Azeroth. At some point she was confronted by members of the Argent Crusade and taken to Tirion Fordring and Darion Mograine, who both told her of the Lich King's intentions, and that he would even sacrifice her in order to succeed. Enraged at these words, Kirani demanded that they free her so that she may confront Arthas atop Icecrown Citadel, and let her go they did. She approached the Frozen Throne and attempted to combat Arthas out of rage, but she was quickly defeated, easily outmatched by his great powers, and her now lifeless body was thrown from the top of Icecrown Citadel. However, during the final assault on the citadel, the Knights of the Ebon Blade took her body to Acherus, where they managed to resurrect her for a second time. She then agreed to join them, although loosely, and then went into hiding so that the night elves would not find her again - as she had over the years developed a hatred for them.

During the Burning Legion's third invasion of Azeroth, Kirani was summoned by Highlord Darion Mograine to aid the Ebon Blade in the fight against their old enemies. Kirani agreed to help, and soon after took up the Blades of the Fallen Prince, made from the shards of Frostmourne, saying she would wield them out of vengeance against Arthas, who had long since been deceased. Kirani did not, however, lead the Ebon Blade, and left that to another Acherus death knight of the Alliance, Gazy.
