The Prophet was Inarius in disguise. This is taken from the Sin War Trilogy.
Do you have any evidence that it is Inarius, aside from Inarius called himself "The Prophet?" I ask because A) it just doesn't seem like something he would do and if it is him, it would have to be before the Sin Wars (as he's been in the Hells since), and in doing so, wouldn't he have been more upfront about him being the Prophet of the Light? It seems like it would be something the enchantress would mention. C) Why would any of the Angels know about his actions? None of his followers survived to the Sin Wars (Lillith killed them all), and I doubt he would have written that down for an Angel going through his palace to find after he'd been carted off to be tortured in the Burning Hells.
I agree, it COULD be Inarius (we don't know enough about timelines to say for sure if the Enchantress is before/after the Sin Wars), but I just don't think it is. My personal theory is that she was more from the Mage Clan Wars, as I thought that period was when humans not aligned with the Mephisto led Triune started summoning demons.
I know Uldyssian is a long shot, but seeing that everything is around the nephalem now it seems natural to finally know if he survived somehow or not, in any case, i'm just throwing ideas around, this is the most fun part of the games, the speculation
Everything you see is what they want you to see. Everything you do is what they want you to do. Everything you think you know, is a lie. Nephalem, you are indoctrinated.
That would explain why the big evils and their goons have suddenly developed holo-com technology to broadcast their plans at the Nephalem hero. ("Oh, uh I totally saw this dude using an amulet, so I stole it, yeah, that's what I did.")
Hmm, the Wizard thinks some book had them as this hero of Prophecy. The Demon Hunter had their family killed and a group of hate-filled killers recruited them. The Witch Doctor was sent on his quest by the spirits? I don't remember the Barb/Monk pre-story, I think the Barb was looking for the ultimate challenge or something.
Expansion starts with a cinematic of Deckard Cain and the surviving Diablo 2 heroes ripping you out of a demonic torture chamber. "By the Light, what have those fiends done to you? At last, I was able to decode some of the ancient Horadrim prophecies, which led us to you, but I fear I may have been too late. Dead? No, my friend, I can assure you I am quite alive! However, if we do not act swiftly, I am afraid we shall all be headed for the Unformed Lands! "
You stagger forward, eyes set on an open doorway with sunlight pouring in in the distance. The sounds of battle echo off the caverns walls. You fall to your knee, a tired-looking Amazon and sullen Druid support you as you shuffle towards the exit. The camera pans out over a devastated wasteland down below, a horrendous battle is waging. The rivers run dark with the blood of the fallen, the bodies of angels, demons, and men, litter the ground as far as your eyes can see. In the skies, the angels and winged demons clash in a beautiful display of aerobatics and death. The poor souls that are wounded and sent earthward in this deadly aerial battle are torn apart by the frenzied forces on the ground.
You stagger back from the doorway, a bright light shines behind you and you feel an armored hand grip your shoulder. The Archangel Tyrael, Aspect of Justice, looks at you with the black void that is his face, "Nephalem, I do not know what lies the demons have been feeding you, but we haven't much time. The final battle is upon us, whoever triumphs on this day shall be the victor of the Eternal Conflict. Come, Nephalem, the hour of your true destiny is at hand."
