Angel or Demon?

As the only 'good' character spanning the series there's got to be something we're missing. Is he a Nephalem or something more...

In D1 He sent the mysterious warrior to the depths to 'destroy' Diablo only to be possessed.

In D2 we were kept on the trail of Diablo always a little too late.

Something smells a little fishy..

I think he's just been played a fool the entire time. He adamantly wants to help but keeps playing directly into Hell's plans.

Sidenote: Technically all humans are Nephalem.

I think hes a demon in disguise. He wants the hero to kill diablo so that he can raise to power and become Kane the destroyer.

Cain is supposed to be Belial, the Lord of Lies LOL

But its true...i wouldnt be surprised if Blizzard actually twists the story to something so weird that i would feel: WTF has happened?

Eh, didn't a little lore entry from the d3 launch site blizzard put up essentially reveal that while Cain talked a big game of being the last Horadrim, he was really just an old dude born after their time trying to keep with the traditions of his forebears?

Doesn't really strike me as some great evil in disguise; and stating that he is amounts to wild conspiracy theory... I'm gonna come down on the side of "Geriatric-Coot-with-a-Penchant-for-Storytelling".

The one twist on Cain I'd like to see is "He might be Leah's Father"

I'm sure Leah's some kind of Insurance policy In case sanctuary goes to ... "Heck" But as much clout as she's got being the Daughter of "The warrior" (If that's the case) and possibly has a claim to the throne of Khanduras, all she's got is some magic passed from Mom, and the tutelage of Deckard Cain.

(And if either Cain or Adria was as smart as Agewyn) He'd probably want a being as powerful as Tal Rasha, and the closest to that is someone with his DNA and the DNA of the only other powerful magic user he knows, and then he should have had her live with the Amazons (Or some other hybrid magic user / warrior type) so she'd be handy in a fight as well.

What a weird ideia bro! In Diablo 1, Adria and the warrior had tha same age, but Cain was an Elder yet...
I can't imagine Cain Being Leah's father...
In fact, the beta has brought us this question to clarification:
Adria and Aiden are the parents of Leah (Aiden is the warrior)
