Hatred and Discipline is a short web story written by Micky Neilson, set in the Diablo universe. It was later collected in the Heroes Rise, Darkness Falls anthology.

Inspiration was taken from Stephen King when writing the story. Neilson has described it as "delving into some of the most deeply rooted fears of all: fear of failure, of loss and hope, and of crossing that often indistinct line between good and evil."


A bold demon hunter risks becoming her own worst enemy while tracking down her sinister prey...
