Prime Evils

Diablo - Lord of Terror

Diablo is one of the three Prime Evils of the Burning Hells. As the Lord of Terror, he is responsible for all of humanities fears, and filling humans with bloodlust. Although Diablo is younger than his two brothers, he is the strongest, and essentially the de facto leader of the three.

Baal - Lord of Destruction

Baal, the Lord of Destruction, is one of the Prime Evils who rule over Hell in the Diablo series. Despite being imprisoned within the body of the mage Tal Rasha, he eventually laid siege to Mt Arreat in the hope of destroying Sanctuary's most guarded secret: The Worldstone.

Mephisto - Lord of Hatred

Mephisto, the Lord of Hatred, is one of the greater evils that the player must battle in Diablo II. He is the eldest of his brothers but was the first to be sealed inside a soulstone by the Horadrim. Once Mephisto broke free from his shackles he set about corrupting the jungles of Kurast and forcing the high priests of Kurast, the Zakarum, into doing his bidding. He took the strongest of the priests, Sankekur and took over his body, essentially resurrecting himself in physical form. The Zakarum proved useful to Mephisto as they helped spread his evil influence throughout the area.

Minor Characters

The Butcher

The Butcher is (usually, though not always) the first boss in Diablo, who resides in a small corpse-filled room and wields a large cleaver which he uses to maim and kill his victims. The Butcher utters his signature line, "Ah, fresh meat!" and attacks, wielding his namesake weapon: the Butcher's Cleaver.

In Diablo III, it is revealed that several "Butchers" exist. A new Butcher is the final boss in Act I of Diablo III.
