Lore Introduction[edit]

Blizzard introduced the monster with some lore as part of the Westmarch Bestiary preview in November 2013:[1]

“These monsters were once the most notorious and reviled criminals in Westmarch, drawn up from the deepest, darkest cells of the city’s prisons. Each was worse than the last: heartless murders who had butchered countless men, women, and children. In death, Malthael birthed them in forms that matched their twisted, callous souls, creating perfect instruments of slaughter. The executioners have earned their name.”

These were once men, mutated into demonic forms by Malthael's vile sauce.
