Not content with their enormous holdings, the Barovs entered into a deal with the human mage Kel'Thuzad, leader of the Cult of the Damned. The once opulent House of Barov became the horrific Scholomance, a school of necromancy. When the Barov family pledged their allegiance to Kel'Thuzad, Alexei became an undead death knight, Illucia and Jandice were turned into an Undead Ghosts, and Alexi assumed an Undead. However, Alexi was one of the Undead that were freed by Sylvanas and became a Forsaken. Weldon is the only still-living member of the Barov family. He was able to escape from Kel'Thuzad, and then sided with the Alliance.
