there are rather two possibilities when it comes to Adria. Malthael absorbed her lifeforce and she ended up mummified, or this is her true form as Lilith.......however that portrait indicates otherwise, that Lilith is indeed a different person.
Yeah I am interested to see what her story is in RoS. It's clear Lilith is independent from Adria but I do like the similarities. I wonder if they are at all connected. I really liked Lilith in the Sin War Novels.
The upward horns on Adria are reminiscent of Mephisto, so perhaps she absorbs some power from the Black Soulstone somehow?
That said, Mephisto looks completely different in Diablo 3;
There is also this image in which his horns are slightly different, and similar to those that Adria is sporting;
Maybe Lilith ( Meph's Daughter) possessed Adria and that's why Adria resembles Lilith, and therefore also Mephisto!
But that would mean Lilith/Adria had sex with Diablo... and technically Diablo is her uncle..
Unless you think Lilith possesses Adria during the expansion (not back in Diablo 2 days...)
Well Adria fucked Aidan at the end of D1 basically so during D2 she could have been possessed or shortly after Aidan leaving Tristram. Seems to make sense visual wise There's no portrait for adria and her boss model looks like lilith so It's all very possible.

Not even Death will save you from Diablo Bunny's Cuteness!
So according to these portraits, do Baal and Mephisto make cameos in ROS?
These avatars don't necessarily indicate the characters will be in the game after all considering a character's avatar is shown when you receive one of their personalized lore excerpts.
If you look at the datamined Lore Book info, you will see that both Inarius and Lilith have a number of tomes that will obviously be read by them, hence the Avatars appearing. No Lore Books revealed so far for Meph or Baal but I'd say that's likely the case as opposed to them actually showing up in-game.
