    Diablo is NOT female!

    ive heard a lot of people saying that diablo is female for whatever reason.. well i have proof that he is not. there are 6 LORDS of hell. diablo, mephisto, baal, belial, azmodan, and duriel. there is one MAIDEN of hell, and that is andariel. this is proof that "lord" means male, and "maiden" means female.

    Proof? That's not proof of anything, heh.

    Just because the term "lord" is used doesn't mean that the 7 Evils are male. The terms "monk" and "wizard" are used in this game for both the male and female versions. As for Andariel... "maiden" is not the feminine version of "lord" in any case, and I would say that the ONLY reason she's depicted with (exaggerated) feminine attributes is because the designers were going for a dominatrix theme... or, in a more abstract sense, she evokes the fear that men in our culture have of female sexuality But not because she is supposed to have the non-superficial cultural and biological aspects of a human woman (ability to bear children).

    In English (and in other European languages), where there's a male and female version of a term, the "male" version can usually include both genders (like "man", "actor" and so on... the exception being farmyard animals like "cow" and "duck", but that's a different story )

    In fact, though, I don't think that the Angels and Demons are INHERENTLY gendered Yes we have Lilith, but she might well have taken on that gender in an ad hoc fashion order to get it on with whatsisname ><

    In other words... we're not talking about humans here Get your mind out of that binary gendered rut that our species is so sadly prone to!

    Dude, watch the developer's thing, in the collectors edition. There is a stream floating around, but it's very spoilery. They absolutely confirm that diablo was specifically animated and designed to be female in this game, as his host was female.
    Why does a female diablo make you so upset?

    Divergent from actual topic , but there are 7 .. you forgot Andariel, lord of pain .. the maggot found in tal rashas tomb in D2 .. See book of cain for more ..

    And you are right, female host is possible, but diablo is male ..

    I got the idea that diablo's soul or essence or whatever was genderless, and he was the gender roughly of his host. Which is why in this game, she is female.

    Re: Diablo is NOT female!

    According to the developers at last Blizzcon, whenever asked about Sheablo, the demons aren't really male or female. They're demons and that doesn't really correspond to human genders.

    How much of that is just a way to dodge the question, and how that works with past lore featuring "the three brothers" and angels and demons having children, etc, is open to Metconning debate.
