The Chosen is a oneshot comic designed to tie in with the release of Diablo III: Rise of the Necromancer.


The Priests of Rathma travel a long road to embrace their devotion to the Balance. Few are taken into the fold, and fewer still manage to harness their dark magic with restrained emotion and impartial expertise.

Join us, heroes, as we look back on the journey of a certain initiate before she first set eyes on New Tristram...


The comic depicts the female Necromancer of Diablo III, starting as a child. While playing with friends, she is approached by Master Necromancer Ordan, who brings a dead bird back to life via necromancy. She accepts his offer to join the Priests of Rathma, and he takes her to the Necropolis. Over the years, she studies the use of necromancy and academia. Many years later, now an adult, she is taken by Ordan to her village, which has been destroyed by cultists. Bodies of the villagers are present, which are implied to be the corpses of her childhood friends.

Ordan bids her raise the bodies, and she does so, setting the newly formed skeletons on the cultists. The skeletons kill the cultists, and Ordan gives her restrained congratulations, though tells her to be faster next time. The Necromancer agrees.
