History[edit | edit source]

20 years ago, under the Tristram Cathedral lied Diablo, who was put there after being captured by the Horadrim. Over the centuries, Tristram developed near the Cathedral. There were no issues for a long time, until the capital of Khanduras was placed right in Tristram. The Archbishop Lazarus was drawn to Diablo's soulstone, and corrupted by its power. Diablo also attempted to control King Leoric. He failed, but broke the king's mind in the process. He instead had Lazarus bring the king's son Albrecht down into the depths of the Cathedral. In the course of Diablo I, Aidan purged the Cathedral of evil, and defeated diablo. It was plundered several times, but nothing of import happened until the Fallen Star crashed down upon it. The impact raised tons of dead, including Leoric himself. The Nephalem defeated the undead, rescued Cain, who was trapped within, defeated Leoric for the third time in history, and brought the Stranger (Tyrael) out. Nothing else has happened, yet.
