    Who is Leah?

    About 11 minutes into the gameplay trailer the barbarian says something like "Leah worries for you" to Cain. So my question is, who is this Leah?

    Is she like Deckard´s lover, daughter or grand-daughter (can the Horadrim procreate? :)

    And also might the girl featured in the teaser cinematic be this Leah?
    Wonder what her purpose might be... more than being the new narrator... hope she fares better than Marius!

    my only assumption is she's an NPC that gives a quest to find Cain. Of course, i could be wrong. :whistling:

    I would guess that she's like a student of Cain or something.

    Student sound more realistic than child.
    It's been said that he's the only remain of the Horadraim and he's like a hundered years old, so he's not going to make new kind anytime soon...

    I haven't yet watched the gameplay video, but I'm going to guess that Leah is the girl in the cinematic trailer. Or do we know that that girl (who says "I don't think it's safe here") is someone else?

    Yep, probably just some NPC :)


    Is Cain a real Horadrim? I thought they where all dead and he was just a wannabe.

    I agree Thirty-Thirty...she is more than likely the girl from the Cinematic trailer. I am willing to bet that the girl in that trailer is going to have a central role in all of the future cinematics.....

    Re: Who is Leah?

    Yeah, I think she'll be the protagonist of the cinematics and not the PC - just like Marius was in D2.

    It would be interesting to see a ressurection of the Horadrim through Leah, Cain may have been less than satisfied with the lack of attention the general populace had of almost succumbing to the forces of Hell 20 years earlier.

    In the trailer it seems she's searching for knowledge in the cathedral of Tristram, just as the meteor from heaven is descending(Tyrael?).

    Re: Who is Leah?

    Yes, you could be right Corkee. However I would be excited to see the protagonist of the cinematics involved in the actual gameplay and storyline. Not that I didn't think D2's cinematic storyline was bad, I actually thought it worked very well, always being one step behind, sort of thing. And I don't think a pathetic person like Marius would have added much to your gameplay experience if he had been in it.

    But Leah definitely looks like a more intriguing person for a protagonist.

    Re: Who is Leah?

    I believe that Leah is the daughter of Cain and Anya. Cain expresssed a GREAT interest in Anya in Harrogath after you rescue her... she seems to be about 20 y/o. it fits... kind of. And in the gameplay movie, he referes to Leah as a "Nursemaid". Why would you call your apprentice a "nursemaid"? I think since he is so old, she probably takes care of him, because she is his daughter. Perhaps Anya died sometime after she was born. Or maybe she is in another town, waiting for Cain and Leah to return with any information from the Cathedral... Who knows. All this speculation is intoxicating and FUN!

    Re: Who is Leah?

    If she is/was a student, but has become a bit more independent now, she can easily fit into the role of taking care of her elderly master. Not like he's completely senile - just that she worries after him.
    I'm not saying one way or the other, just opening up possibilities.

    Re: Who is Leah?

    He also says: " If it's not one nursemaid, then it's another" (who worries after him).

    I guess in D1 it was Gillian (?), who took care of him (NPC you could talk to but nothing else in the north of Tristram). Not sure if there was one girl to look after him in D2, but it's quite possible that Leah is a Gillian of some sorts.

    Re: Who is Leah?

    Where'd all this talk of Anya come from? Yeah, her presence and sudden disappearance in Act III was really strange, but it doesn't mean she'll have any sort of role in the story of D3, or even make an appearance. Maybe she was just a fragment from a removed quest that Blizz didn't see any harm in leaving alone.

    As for the Tristram cathedral, my theory is that it will be the site of Diablo's resurrection.

    I'm guessing so otherwise they'd die out pretty fast

    Re: Who is Leah?

    Ehhh...yeah, you're right. It's been a while since I talked to any NPCs...too many names ending in "ya." Well, I think it's safe to speculate that this Leah is Anya's daughter, then. And no, Cain is not the father. That's disgusting, for one, and it's completely out of character.

    Re: Who is Leah?

    Btw. Leah could also be the daughter of Adria (The witch in D1). There is no knowing what happened to her and she might not be dead...
