Azmodan, the Lord of Sin, is a demonic hero from the Diablo series who has been considered for inclusion in the game as early as 2011. The Lord of Sin rules over a densely populated land of hell where both the greatest joys and despair, and the deepest depravities can be experienced. But it is never enough for Azmodan, who has set his eyes on the realm of Sanctuary.
As with all the Evils, Azmodan originated from one of the seven heads of Tathamet. He lorded over the Realm of Sin. For much of his existence he desired to be the sole ruler of Hell.
During the Great Conflict, Azmodan successfully defeated his angelic foes many times on the battlefields of Pandemonium. In one such battle, Azmodan faced the archangel Tyrael. Tyrael bested him and stood ready to deal the final blow. However, one of Tyrael's comrades called for aid and Tyrael rushed to lend aid. Azmodan thus escaped the angel's wrath.

Having a unusual high health for a non-Warrior, Azmodan's limited movement and lack of crowd control allows Malthael to stick on him. Additionally, Azmodan's ability to summon minions means Malthael can get extra health from Soul Rip.
