Diablo II – NPC Dialogue Lore – Act I – Sisters of the Slaughter
|It is certain that we face the demon queen, Andariel, who has corrupted the Rogue Sisterhood and defiled their ancestral Monastery. This does not bode well for us, my friend. Ancient Horadric texts record that Andariel and the other Lesser Evils once overthrew the three Prime Evils—Diablo, Mephisto and Baal—banishing them from Hell to our world. Here, they caused mankind untold anguish and suffering before they were finally bound within the Soulstones. Andariel’s presence here could mean that the forces of Hell are once again aligned behind Diablo and his Brothers. If this is true, then I fear for us all. You must kill her before the Monastery becomes a permanent outpost of Hell and the way east lost forever.
Diablo is heading east for some foul purpose. And the only passage east is through the Monastery gate. Obviously, Diablo summoned Andariel to block any pursuit. For her part Andariel hopes to win Diablo’s favor… the lesser demons are always vying for positions of power within the unholy hierarchy!
|Andariel has desecrated all we hold dear. She must not be permitted to serve Diablo. Destroy her! Her corruption of our Order must be undone!|
|Send Andariel back to the Hell she came from!|
|You’re going after Andariel? … One of my wagon wheels is in need of repair. I’ll be under the wagon, if I’m needed.|
|The mapmakers tell us the shortest distance between two points is a straight line. Our way east is a line that runs through Andariel’s stronghold, the Monastery.|
|I can imagine a thousand different ways to kill Andariel. You need only choose one.|
|It is clear that Andariel is acting on behalf of Diablo to prevent anyone from following him eastward. Her defeat would allow you to continue the pursuit. Ancient lore has it that while Andariel was spawned in the Burning Hells, she is not fond of fire.|
|You have done much to help us, but I sense that this has only fueled Andariel’s fury. She will not stop until we are all dead. You must kill Andariel before her army can gain the upper hand.|
|Have you stumbled upon that Demon Queen, yet? I hear she’s quite the beauty… as far as Maidens of Anguish go, that is.|
|If you are the hero that you seem to be, now is the time to prove it.|
|May I remind you that my caravan can only go east, if the Monastery is cleansed?|
|Deckard Cain has important information about Andariel.|
|Finally, we may rejoice! We owe you a debt we can never repay. I only hope that in time we will be able to rebuild our Order. All our thanks go with you, my friend.|
|You’ll probably go east now… It was good to know you. I hope you’ll come back if you ever need anything.|
|Andariel’s death brings about renewed life for us all. We mourn the loss of our dear Sisters, but at least now we can get on with our lives. I… may have misjudged you, outlander. You are a true hero and testament to the noble spirit which has inspired our Order for generations. Fare well… my friend.|
|I’m going to party like it’s 999!|
|The caravan is prepared. We may now journey eastward to Lut Gholein.|
|This is a great victory indeed, but many more battles await. I will accompany you on your journey, lending what assistance I can… Remember… Diablo is still out there, seeking something in the desert. I’m afraid that this nightmare will not end until you find what it is that he seeks.|
