2. HOW; Can demon Lords just "poof" where ever they want on Sanctuary?.
3. In the Black Soulstone Trailer Azmodan says "One by one OUR brethren fell into your trap. But not me. I defy you!"
This makes it sound as ih he were never speaking to Leah, but rather Diablo.
A) He knew she was his daughter
B) He at least suspected she was in league with him
C) He thought he could reach Diablo through her
Is this really what happened?
4. The Book of Cain describes Azmodan as defining the universe and people in it by "how far they are willing to go". Being the Lord of Sin and from descriptions of his realm, it seems he REALLY should have tested us beyond just physical opposition.
He should set up some kind of cunning obstacle or barrier, through which we could ONLY pass by doing something
B) Genuinely morally questionable (Ala SAW: cut open a guardsman's stomach, killing him to get a macguffin needed to save the world) and then taunt us that we dont have the "moral superiority" we thought we had because we were desperate enough to take the "shortest path". After all, he is The Lord of Sin.
This or a series of increasingly desperate events could lead up to his defeat, but with an essence of "If you kill me... you'll be just like me" trope. This would also leave the characters scarred, and shaken even at the end of the game (albeit it might not come up until those nights when they are alone in town, just like Aidan after killing Diablo.)
All they could say is
"I did what I 'had' to do."
And other NPCs,....they might NOT actually accept this. (WHICH could lead to MULTIPLE ENDINGS -mostly the same, but subtly different)
I think that would have really improved public perception of the character, and made it a bit more fitting of the details in his entry in The Book of Cain. By contrast, I think Belial's story worked quite well.
Would this be a sound idea for any future content that involves Azmodan?
