Biography

Mephisto was a demon from the Burning Hells who was one of the Prime Evils that was described as the oldest of the three brothers that included Diablo and Baal. He and his kin fought in the Eternal Conflict against the Angels of the High Heavens over creation itself. One such battle saw Angels enter his realm itself with one of them managing to draw blood from Mephisto. From where the blood dropped spawned the race of Magma Demons that arose to defend their master from the angelic intruders. It was said that the angel Inarius once laid siege to an internal temple that was devoted to Mephisto. Whilst his armies laid waste to it, causing Mephisto himself to appear at the cathedral of Inarius where he destroyed it alongside the surrounding countryside. He then took the proud Archangel and his followers where the former was bound in tremendous chains whilst his wings were slowly torn from his back. Meanwhile, some of the angel's followers were given as gifts to Baal and Diablo for their amusement. The remaining were molded to match the twisted appearance of their former master as they became Overlords who served Mephisto.

The creators of the Zakarum religion locked Mephisto away in a tower deep within the holy city of Kurast. Over the years, Mephisto slowly extended his influence over every priest in the council save for Khalim, the head of the council. Khalim stood up to the Lord, but the council members, under Mephisto's command, literally tore him to shreds. The new head of the council, Sankekur, eventually became the embodiment of Mephisto. Eventually, the council members themselves became Mephisto's most trusted and most powerful lieutenants, and the people of Kurast either fell to his dark influence or fled to the last bastion of light in the jungles, the Kurast Docks. With Khalim gone, Mephisto and the high council members managed to extend their influence past the capital of Travincal, into the three levels of Kurast, Lower, the Bazaar, and Upper Kurast. Council members Galeb Flamefinger, Toorc Icefist and Ismail Vilehand stayed near the entrance to Mephisto's Durance near the compelling orb in Travincal, while members Bremm Sparkfist, Wyand Voidfinger and Maffer Dragonhand stayed on the third level near Mephisto and the portal to hell.
