Dont know if it already been said but on the D3 site somewhere it says the "story" of the game and it says its first victim is Cain or something alone those lines. Ill try and find it.
Can you give an overview of Diablo III's storyline?
It has been twenty years since the events of Diablo II. Of those who faced the Lords of Hatred, Terror, and Destruction in the battle over the fate of Sanctuary, there are few still living who can bear to remember the horrors that the Prime Evils wrought upon the world. And of those who did not witness the terrible events firsthand, most believe the stories to be little more than myth. But something evil is stirring once again in Tristram, and it may already have claimed its first victim: Deckard Cain.
i think that's referring to his encounter in the dungeon they show in the gameplay trailer. He's stuck in the catacombs beneath the church in hordes of demons. but i think that he makes it out ok from the looks of things.

Why can't a heterosexual guy tell a heterosexual guy that he thinks his booty is fly?
The Tristram Cathedral is home to some sort of cult.
It is stated somewhere that Cain travelled to the Tristram Cathedral in earch of some information. It seems entirely possible that they captured Cain while he was wandering the place and did something to him. Imagine for a moment that they are a Cult of Belial.
Edit: Great title on that concept art in the lower right. I hadn't noticed the resemblance.

‘I'M NOT LEAVING UNTIL WE ALL HAVE AIDS!’—The importance of calling them ‘mercenaries.’
if its all cain why did the demons trap cain in a cage and also capture him again and he is also helping you?
1) Cain was captured in Diablo II and not killed because he is a Horadrim, and, as such, would be a valuable asset to the Prime Evils with his vast knowledge and would probably make a good minion once corrupted, which takes time and energy from the soulstones/Prime Evils/a major demonic power.
2) He has not been "captured" in Diablo III in the sense that he was in Diablo II. In Diablo III he has a handful of other men with him, guarding him against the cultists, undead, and demonics plagueing the lower levels of the Cathedral, which they openly fight and kill along side you in the new game (which disproves any upcoming argument that the men with him are demons, since demons have no need to kill themselves.)
I never really thought of it like that here are a few facts that might support this idea.
1.Decard Cain was always being captured in locked up in Tristam but the monsters never really attacked him.
2.The Heroes would always show up just in time to save cain which might be true or just a coincidence.
3.Cain is living longer than any of the other character's meaning he may be the host for some big immortal demon (same thing Diablo,Lord of Terror does to get back into the mortal world).
4.Decard Cain is the last of the Horadrim which is a bit fishy because he never really fought and all the other Horadrim ended up dieing by continously fighting the prime evils,Does this mean that cain ordered the three bothers to let him live?
There are also these facts that utterly break this idea.
1.Maruis the guy that traveled with Diablo (The Dark wanderer) in D2 was ordered to destory the soulstones by Tyreal and some of the Horadrim (None of which where Cain) and Cain was never involved in any of that plot.
2.If Cain was the cuase of all these problems why would Mephisto,Diablo,and Baal's minons still be targeting him as a threat unless they are just following Cains order's to make the plot seem good.
3.Decard Cain did in fact suggest the idea of destorying the Worldstone to Tyreal but Tyreal himself made the decision to destory it not Cain
I've got it..................................Tyrael is Azmodan, Cain is Belial;Diablo,Meph, and Baal see them as threats because they are trying to take rule of Hell or Sanctuary. Cain and Tyrael are kind of best buds, Cain is one old geezer and seems to never die what is he like 120 now. He went to Tristram Cathedral because that holds the answer to forever ridding themselves of The Three Prime Evils. This would open up to the ruling of Belial and Azmodan. Cain always seems to be caught yes and is never killed yes. Kind of odd that Cain lived right near the place where a Prime Evils bidding was taking place in D1. Odd that Cain is the only survivor of the Horadrim yet they are supposed to have been extinct. How in the hell does he know how to kill and/or complete every creature and objective of every quest in D2 and D1 lol (funny but being serious). Tyrael and Cain have both been the sources of the plot, so i conclude Cain is Belial and Tyrael Azmodan if I am wron so be it Im just throwing my theory out there and to me it makes a lot of sense
Cain is not corrupted, as he helped every hero in their quest since Diablo 1. What explains he has survived in Tristram?, you say: He was old and the last of the Horadrim. They caged him so that he stays in the storyline.
Then, what explains he has survived in Harrogath? The destruction of the worldstone has not destroyed Harrogath, only the chamber (maybe Mt. Arreat).
Then, in Diablo 3, Cain was looking for the presence of Evil in Tristram because he felt that the destruction of the worldstone had corrupted a part of the world.
For Blizzard, Cain is only a witness of all the story of Diablo.
And for Tyrael, he was never corrupted. Angels don't usually help mortals, but Tyrael did. BUT, he was probably corrupted by the destruction of the worldstone and he helped Diablo. (Meteor from the sky).
They also say in the introduction text (frontpage) : the heroes of Sanctuary to defend the mortal world against the rising powers of the Burning Hells – and even the failing luminaries of the High Heavens itself.
