It started with Inarius. According to the Book of Cain, Inarius was an advisor to the Angiris Counsel who served Tyrael, archangel of Justice.

There are two sides to the Eternal Conflict. One side is the Prime Evils and Lesser Evils in the Burning Hells, who fight with each other in an effort to become the one who rules them all.
The other side is the Angels in the High Heavens, who are presided over by the Angiris Council. These angels that make up the Angiris Council are not elected – they are born to lead.Continue Reading “Lore of the Angiris Council”
Diablo IV takes place many years after the events in the Diablo III: Reaper of Souls expansion. Millions have been slaughtered. Some people (who are part demon and part angel) are still there – trying to survive. It is only a matter of time before an opportunistic and powerful being steps in to take control of it.
Diablo IV: By Three They Come was released at BlizzCon 2019. It provides an intense, and terrifying, look at what to expect in Diablo IV. (At the time I am writing this blog post, Diablo IV has not yet been released.)Continue Reading “Diablo IV: By Three They Come”
The lore of the Diablo series of video games and books makes it clear that there are Demons that originate in the Burning Hells. While many are minions, there are seven of them that are noteworthy.
The three Prime Evils and the four Lesser Evils are constantly battling with each other in an effort to take over more land and minions. Each one wants to become the most powerful Lord of the Burning Hells.
Here is a brief look at who each of these very important demons are.Continue Reading “Lore of the Prime Evils and Lesser Evils”
Most cultures, if not all of them, have their own creation myth. These myths are symbolic, and told in a narrative form. Often, the story connects to a group’s religious beliefs.
The story is about the creation of the world, and it explains how the people got there. Creation myths cannot be proven, because there are no artifacts, written history, or first-hand observers of the events in the story.
When it comes to the Diablo “universe”, however, some parts of their creation myths still linger. The first part of the story is about Anu and the Dragon.Continue Reading “Anu and The Dragon”
This is Humbart Wessel. I got him from a Menagerist Goblin in March of 2018 while I was streaming on Twitch.
The flavor text on Humbart Wessel says: A brave warrior with many opinions, Humbart journeys still through the mortal plane, sharing his version of wit and wisdom.Continue Reading “Humbart Wessel”
Kala is an NPC (non-player character) that stands on the edge of The Hidden Camp, overlooking Caldeum. Players probably won’t notice Kala unless they are playing through story-mode and talking to all the NPCs.
Her story is told in pieces. Players need to return to The Hidden Camp, and talk to Kala, several times to hear everything she has to say.Continue Reading “The Lore of Kala”
King Kanai is an NPC (non-player character) in Diablo III. If you have ever taken one of your characters to obtain Kanai’s Cube, you have seen Kanai’s ghost appear and point at the Cube.
But, who was King Kanai? There’s plenty of lore about him in the Diablo III game, and some additional information about the inspiration for the character that is presented outside of the game.Continue Reading “The Lore of King Kanai”
If you are playing the female Demon Hunter in Diablo III as your character, there is reason to believe that she might be Valla.
So, who is Valla? According to the Diablo Wiki, Valla was born around 1265 (in the “Diablo universe” timeline). She was born around the time that connects to the Diablo II game.
Sometime later, Valla’s younger sister, Halissa, was born. The sisters were close. At least one, if not both, of the girls parents were sawyers – people who sawed timber for a living.
One of the Witch Doctor sets in Diablo III is called Zunimassa’s Haunt. The set is useful if you want to do a pet build.
Those who played a Witch Doctor in Season 6, and who completed certain objectives in the Season Journey, received the entire Zunimassa’s Haunt set. The pieces are obtainable through random drops, too.
Playing a Witch Doctor during Season 6 left me with a question. Who was Zunimassa?
