- The Butcher(src)
A grotesque shape lumbers across the Nexus, a cleaver and a blood-encrusted meat hook in his massive hands. His hunger, insatiable, insistent, drives him ever on to carve up his enemies and consume their fresh meat. Even those fighting alongside him shrink away in fear when he draws near. He is violence incarnate; he is brutality given shape. He is the Butcher.
The Horadrim of Sanctuary have few records that make mention of a demon known as The Butcher. Two appearances are noted, spanning a time frame of over twenty years. Countless victims fell to the terror of this monstrosity at the threaten Tristram. And rumors are told that the demon is physically constructed from the pieces of other demons. As a result, The Butcher appears to see all other living and unliving things as mere parts.
