Yay! Good riddle.

Here's my effort:

I am of the lord
I was there at the slaying
Those that are like me
Could be muted or marching

I'm worried my riddle is too tricky - so I've tweaked the wording to be a little clearer and come up with an amended version should anyone want...

In which case my guess is

I still can't make the last line fit, but it idiom or phrase-wise works for the other three I think?
The duke, the wanderer, the philosopher, the mariner, the warrior, the strategist, the storyteller, the wizard, the wayfarer...

Here's my next one:

I, a snow of darkling white,
Shall fall beneath a glowing light,
For when his kingdom frost has got,
You'll make me though you want me not
I may be made of mine own name,
So tell me, can you guess the same?
The duke, the wanderer, the philosopher, the mariner, the warrior, the strategist, the storyteller, the wizard, the wayfarer...

It's a very nice riddle poetically! I've had a good think but doubt I'm right  ???

I'd be more apathetic if I weren't so lethargic.
