Cassia, the Amazon Warmatron, is a Ranged Assassin hero hero from the Diablo universe. After shattering the Worldstone, the young Amazon Cassia had changed. She had seen hatred, terror, and destruction firsthand. If the Askari were to survive the coming darkness, they needed an army. She would begin their training immediately.

Background[edit | edit source]

Diablo (franchise) This section concerns content exclusive to Diablo universe.

Cassia is one of the amazons of the Askarri tribe at Skovos Isles. Following a prophecy from its oracles about the rise of the Prime Evils, Cassia departed from the isles and joined with several warriors (including Xul) to pursue the Dark Wanderer. Eventually they ended up killing all three of the Prime Evils but had to witness the destruction of the Worldstone by Tyrael to prevent the essence of Baal corrupting it and also the world itself. With her mission done, Cassia returned to the Skovos Isles, changed but still normal, training future amazons to fight against oncoming darkness.
