As punishment for conspiring with demons and creating Sanctuary without the knowledge of the Angiris Council, Inarius and his followers were given over to the Prime Evil Mephisto, who sought vengeance for Inarius’ hand in the destruction of the Triune. In exchange, Mephisto formed a pact with the Council according to which he would never again tread upon Sanctuary or interfere with the lives of its people. Inarius was bound by tremendous chains whilst barbed hooks slowly tore the wings off his back. The room was covered in mirrors, forcing Inarius to watch as his once glowing skin was stretched and broken.
“He bound Inarius with tremendous chains and slowly tore the wings from the back of the angel. Great barbed hooks were then used to stretch out the once glowing skin and his features were distorted by vile powers. Many of the followers of Inarius were given as gifts to Baal and Diablo, but the rest were molded to match the bloated image of the now crippled angel. To this day, Inarius is said to be trapped in Hell within a chamber of mirrors, his eyelids torn from his face as he is forced to gaze upon his misshapen form for all eternity. His misguided followers now serve as Hell’s taskmasters, taking the anguish of their lost glory out upon the bodies of others.”
Imperius is the Archangel of Valor. He leads the Council in Malthael’s absence, and is often headstrong and acts before he thinks. He has killed billions of demons since the Eternal Conflict started, and absolutely loathes them. Imperius often gets in fights with Tyrael because of his constant interventions with humanity. He is described as the most powerful warrior in all of creation. Tyrael is the Archangel of Justice. He used to be cold and rigid, but after mankind’s brave actions, he has come to realize the promise in them. It is Tyrael who saved man from total annihilation from the hands of the Heavenly Host. In Diablo III, he falls from angelhood in order to warn humanity of coming danger. Tyrael later takes his place as Wisdom.
