Warriors were not found in ''Diablo II'', though Barbarians and Paladins could be seen as upgraded, specialized versions of the character. By the official game fiction though, the Warrior was the character who defeated Diablo at the end of the first game, and drove the soulstone into his head. His end was a tragic one, for he was corrupted by Diablo's malignant influence and became [[The Dark Wanderer]], before finally succumbing entirely to the Lord of Terror and perishing with him at the conclusion of Act Four.
