"I have trained all my life to serve the Thousand and One gods. With their insight, I walk the dagger's edge between peace and war. By their grace, I can heal the wounded. When they wish to strike, I am their iron fist. I am Kharazim, Monk of Ivgorod. The gods speak through me. And they want a word with you!"— Kharazim(src)
Kharazim is a male Monk.
"To the Monks of Ivgorod, the gods are in all things, and their divine will is proclaimed by the Patriarchs. With unshakable faith, Kharazim followed their decree to discover heavenly fire that had fallen upon on the town of New Tristram."(src)
Kharazim uses the appearance of the Monk from Diablo III, and can be considered a canonical portrayal.
Heroes of the StormEdit
He bears standard Monk equipment: full tier of Plate Mail (with respective armor tier components), fighting unarmed. He uses skills from Diablo III, namely Dashing Strike, Seven-Sided Strike, Breath of Heaven, Serenity and so-called Combo Attack (closely resembles Way of the Hundred Fists and Deadly Reach).
Unlike other classes, he can choose his passive trait before the combat begins (but may not change it afterwards): Iron Fists to gain bonus attack damage, Transcendence to heal himself through melee combat, or Insight to restore mana and find a balance between both offensive and defensive roles.
