AusGamers: Diablo III Interview
"The Monk is the Holy warrior of the game," he explains. "He is a member of a sect... a position in society where they report directly to the priest-kings. They're raised from an early age in secluded monasteries where they're taught to become pure expressions of their gods through the perfection of fighting techniques. So, to them, fighting is a way of praying, or giving thanks to god.
"Everything they do, for them, is sanctified. To prove how dedicated they are, they get a tattoo put on their back that is a symbolic representation of their one thousand and one gods - it takes their whole life to complete. Everything in their life is dedicated to their religion, their gods."
Of course though, this is Sanctuary, and things work a little differently than you or I might be used to.
"The church sometimes uses them for what other people might consider to be grey area stuff," Leonard says. "But these guys - for them, it's all straight ahead. They are, in their own minds, the holy warriors."
