Franchise-diablo This is from the Diablo universe.

"As king, I dedicated my life to Tristram and served its people with all my heart. In exchange, they called me a madman and betrayed me! But I have returned... stronger than ever. These so-called 'heroes' think they can destroy me, but I cannot be killed again! Here in the Nexus, I will have my revenge. I am Leoric, the Skeleton King... and I will only choose allies who I know will never betray me!"

- Leoric(src)
