Diablo’s Ending in Primal Rage:

Diablo is evil in its purest form.

He was released from his fiery prison, deep within the Urth, drawn by the pain and torment caused in the great Cataclysms. Now that he has conquered the planet, he lives to torture it. With none left to oppose him, he begins to burn the entire planet.

Sparing only the cruel and vicious, he turns the world into a living hell.

For centuries, he will revel in the inferno he’s created, until at last his rule is challenged by a traveler from across the great sea…
