Adria is Andariel

Lore and Story
Here are the reasons:

1. The lore hints it. When you search all the books throughout all 4 acts, you repeatedly get the message "Andariel helped Diablo from time to time."

2. A-d-r-i-a. All 5 letters are in the word Andariel. Come on, of all the possible names Blizzard can use for Leah's mother, why would they pick these 5 letters so specifically?
Leah says 6 demon lords are in the black soulstone at the start of Act 3.

Diablo says all 7 evils are within him.

So Andarial and Adria cannot be the same person because Andarial is in the black soulstone and Adria is not.
lol your reasoning makes me laugh
Plus, Adria has been part of the lore wayyyyyy before Leah ever entered the picture, and Andariel for that matter.
so diablo married andariel?
makes sense....
Okay, I'm sorry. But...

The lore never hints at this... at all.

Adria is a witch from which you could buy staves and the like in Diablo.

Andariel is one of the lesser evils you defeat in Diablo II. She is dead.

Diablo III pretty much gives you a summary of all that took place through Diablo and Diablo II through lore books. It points out the relationship between the hero of Diablo (the Wanderer from Diablo II) and Adria several times. It makes it real apparent in Act I.

If you haven't played Diablo or Diablo II, please purchase them.

besides, andariel has been in soulstone for a while....

its highly unlikely. and besides, how is adria there while andariel is in the soulstone if this theory is true....

did she put in a replacement? another evil to fill the space?

(considering how seemingly flawed diablo is in act 4... who knows :P)
(of course he does give us anguish by having to listen to him every 5 mins)

bottom line, no.
