Well, in the lore, Lut Gholein is influenced HEAVILY by persian and egyptian culture...

wow way to quickly try to de-rail this. Because clearly ancient mongolian culture should be here. or better yet, monks!??!?!?
Egyptian is a very plausible outcome based on the historical presedence
Except that your example of ancient mongolian culture isn't ancient mongolian culture. It's another entirely fictional culture with aesthetic similarities. Same with the monks. And further, Diablo in-universe mythology is also different from real world mythology. Not to say, of course, that an "Egyptian" themed character couldn't have its own parallel in the Diablo universe — if it does I'm simply not aware of it (and for that reason would not wish to be the first to suggest it).
What you should actually want is for suggested characters to have a solid and reasonable background in Diablo lore, not a real-world historical fit.
But on topic: Since aesthetics carried over from the real world are considered acceptable for the topic, a (Roman) gladiator type character would be welcome to me, with a sense of more broad weapon proficiencies, but abilities mainly for the sword (and possibly two-handed sword, the axe, polearm, and shield). (Just as an afternote, I honestly don't expect there to be an expansion pack.)

defeating demon is present in pretty much all culture/religion.
are people just blatantly ignorant, thats why i said demon hunter closely tied to western religion, not to mention the use of bows and crossbows....
02/24/2012 07:42 PMPosted by CronoLuminaiThe reverse is true then. You could still make skills based of these ancient egyptians, but give different names. But the obvious context will be there. For example, Turning into a Large jackal. That has so many abilities for a certain amount of time. Using the power of a "hawk" to glide from one side of the screen to the other doing damage, in its wake. Embracing power of the sun to heal over time. Using maybe a solar flare to do fire damage. The egyptian mythology opens up many doors.
02/24/2012 07:45 PMPosted by D3BETAI'm guessing Middle Eastern character that uses science/tech. Like an Alchemist, sort of like a mix between WD and WZ. We go through a large city with Middle eastern Theme. so we might see some hints there.
Knight- Hes a freaking knight, you do not need an explanation....
