    Diablo's New Look

    Okay, so I think a lot of people have seen the new image of Diablo that was shown at Blizzcon. I can't seen to find the image myself, but he looks remarkably more feminine than he used to. His waist is narrow and he has a general shape that leads you to believe that somehow... he's become a woman?

    So I was looking at that, and I was thinking about it in-depth, and I remembered that one of the responses to the question of why he looked like that that was answered by a Diablo developer was that we would find out more as we progress in the game... so I had a bit of a thought. What if he looks like that because he has taken over the body OF a woman? In the second game, he takes over the body of the male hero that defeated him in his first incarnation, and he changed to eventually look like his normal form.

    My thought is that perhaps he took over the body of Leah from the trailer. Maybe her fascination with the Black Soulstone lead to her being possessed by Diablo so that he could live again?

    Anyway, just my thoughts.

    if u did any kinda of decent search you could find all kinds of info on this...mostly speculation however... i suggest looking into Diablofans.com and checking the lore section of the forums... however it may contain spoilers. But the pic was added on the blizzard sites today as the art of the week or w/e..

    That's not Diablo I'd guess. It's one of the lesser evils like Azmodan. Or Lilith, Mephisto's daughter.

    I know it isn't Azmodan for a fact; they've shown pics of Azmodan already.

    Cain's niece puts a soulstone in her head and becomes female Diablo.

    WRONG! Those are the BEST discussions!

    a lesser evil "like" azmodan. Not, "is" azmodan.

    Well, okay, but I don't think they'd put a lesser evil in a wallpaper like that with two iconic characters from their other two games. It wouldn't be Thrall, Kerrigan and Who's-That-Guy in a group together... it'd be three that symbolize the franchises.

    Whoa those hips...definitely feminine. I was gonna make a sex change joke but I'm overwhelmed by speculation about whether this is plot related.

    Pretty sure Diablo's not supposed to be a girl, and that demon looks pretty feminine.

    The new, more feminine form was discussed in the Diablo Lore Q & A, though I can't remember exactly what was said. I'll try looking up the video.

    Well, in D1 and D2 Diablo took over a person who stabbed his soul shard into their head. Perhaps in D3 the Amazon or Assassin from D2 got corrupted and bam, xenomorph Diablo like the dog alien in Alien 3.

    I'm not sure if I remember correctly, but I think they didn't really give an answer to that question that actually revealed anything.

    Diablo is a demon that loves to live like a parasite in other bodies in mortal world. If he managed to control the body of chick in Diablo 3 cinematic, it could be her. *shrug*

    At Blizzcon, Kevin Martens (Lead content designer on D3) stated that Diablo is not constrained by our human gender stereotypes, and may take multiple forms. We have never actually seen the true form of Diablo.
