Malthael, the Aspect of Death, is a melee assassin hero from the Diablo franchise.

Once the Aspect of Wisdom, Malthael abandoned heaven after the Worldstone's destruction. In secret, he had resolved to end the Eternal Conflict by becoming a Reaper of Souls and eliminating everything affected by demonic corruption, including humanity.

Background[edit | edit source]

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

Malthael was the Archangel of Wisdom and the leader of the Angiris Council. However, his connection to the largest artifact, the Worldstone, depleted when he discovered it was stolen. Out of all the five members of the Angiris Council, he abstained from voting for the fate of the planet of Sanctuary. Malthael soon left the High Heavens after Tyrael reduced the Worldstone to pieces in one blast. Twenty years afterward, he later betrayed the Angiris Council, and then became the Angel of Death.
