Diablo's plans have included both the elimination of his fellow Great Evils, as well as the members of the Angiris Council. He stoked Imperius' fire, leading him to become more erratic. After Malthael's departure, Imperius became unrestrained and turned on Tyrael. Tyrael was the next to fall, stripping the Angiris Council of Justice. With Justice, Wisdom and Valor gone, Heaven now only has Fate and Hope left in the face of Imperius' Wrath. Neither of these two have been explored in any detail, leading me to hope they will play a larger role in coming chapters. We also have to consider the possibility that Diablo has somehow incorporated either the aspect of Death or Malthael's essence in some way.
Trag'Oul is basically humanity's soul, representing their Past, Present and Future in one. Could Trag'Oul therefor be tied to Fate? Might Diablo, this entire time, be trying to lure Trag'Oul out from hiding to force a confrontation? Perhaps he even wants to possess Trag'Oul! How wicked would that be?
Rollback Post to RevisionRollBack
Be it through hallowed grounds or lands of sorrow
All in the Forger's wake is left bereft and fallow
Is the residuum worth the cost of destruction and maiming;
Or is the shaping a culling and exercise in taming?
The road's goal is the dark Origin of Being
But be wary through what thickets it winds.
